Form Rights Basics

The Form Rights form is a subform of the Access Rights form. The Form Rights form is used specifically for setting rights and alias properties for the item whose Access Rights form you are viewing. The Form Rights form enables you to set specific rights for different user levels, setting properties according to the type of operator. For instance, in a medical office, your forms and fields can have labels that change depending on the user level of the operator who is signed in.

User Level Pick Lists

The Form Rights Pick List field gives you the ability to assign a special pick list to a particular user level. This is very useful for limiting the operator's choices. For instance, you can create one pick list for your system level users and another for your collectors. An example would be the Debtor Status field. Perhaps you want your collectors to be able to change the Status, but limit them to a few choices. This is where you could benefit from setting the pick list in Form Rights for the user level you have assigned to your collectors.
