Derived Forms: Setting up a form so that one event can be entered and reviewed in two different formats.

You may have an event type that some users need to always enter in the entire form and other users only need to enter a short version of the form. You can "split" the form into a short and long version using the derived form by property. The information below outlines how to set up a form as two forms: a long and a short form, where all of the information is still essentially stored as the same event.

The example here shows a player statistics form that captures the basic player statistics and then also captures more in depth information regarding heart rate, body weight etc. A number of users only need to track the basic player statistics, but all of the basic and full player statistics needs to be stored together for analysis and reports purposes. Instead of having two separate forms to track the data, the software can split the form into a basic and a full sheet using the Derive Form By settings on the Form's Advanced Properties (shown in the image in the step below).

A form can be derived from any field in the form (as shown here). For this example we added in a single selection field called Stats (shown in the image in the step above), and this is going to be used to split the form.

Set up the Advanced Properties on the form to derive the form by the specified field.

A single selection field was added to the stats form. It is used to set up the visibility settings for the sections and fields that do not need to appear in the basic stats form

Add in a single selection question that you can set up your visibility setting off for different sections. For this example, the Player Data section is being set to only appear when entering in the Full Player Stats form. Any sections and field visibility needs to be set to be hidden or shown based on the derived field that has been set up.

This single selection options will also be used to NAME the forms on the data entry page, athlete history and reports page. The Rugby Match Stats selection field shown in the image in the step above is the derived form. You can see here that now there are TWO Rugby match forms are available to enter- Rugby- Match Stats and a Rugby- Full Player Stats names are derived from the Stats single selection question

The shortened version is available (e.g specific sections in the form are hidden when viewing the Rugby Match Stats form) for data entry.

The full version of the form is available the Rugby Full Player stats form is selected

The full version of the form is available the Rugby Full Player stats form is selected

The data can be entered and saved the same way that any other form functions.

The data is all stored together and will cross over between forms.  When you view the basic form, any data entered from the full form (e.g. the data entered in the image in the step above) will show

When you view the Full Form any data entered on the basic form will also show.
