Form Design Tips
Following are some tips to help you design an effective Form:
- Make it useful: Consider the audience and what they need most. Technicians might need very detailed information, Portal Customers might need more simplified, more colorful Forms with more User-friendly labels, casual contributors (ex: KA) might need abbreviated details, etc.
- Make it pretty: Do not underestimate the visual experience. Employ visual elements, such as images, colors, styles, alignment, and layering to convey information and embellish the aesthetic. Use consistent, browser-friendly fonts and colors (or Themes) to ensure stability and cohesion.
- Make it conditional: Use Expression-driven colors, text, images, and visibility to dynamically change the way a Control looks and behaves based on a defined condition. For example, display a Priority bar (Rectangle) in a Quick Info Tile, then conditionally change the color to indicate importance (ex: Red for Priority 1 and green for lower priorities).
