Parent-Child Linked Events or Profile Forms that have Database Fields in them

If you link an Event Form or a Profile Form between a parent site and a child site site and the Event Form has a database in it, it is critical that you Link (NOT COPY) any Databases used in these linked Event or Profile Forms.

N.B. If you do choose to Link an Event Form that has a Database in it, but you do NOT link the Database, the database field will simply appear as "no database available".

N.B. You CANNOT add in any other Database on the Child Site if the Event form that was developed on the Parent Site and then Linked.

The Event Form in the Parent Site called "Parent daily Monitoring" is being Linked (shared) with a Child Site

The Event Form in the Parent Site called "Parent daily Monitoring" is being Linked (shared) with a Child Site

In this Event Form there are two Database fields which references two different Database set up on the Parent Site

When data is entered into the Event Form on the Parent Site, the Databases appear as expected (as long as the user has permission to access these Databases)

When data is entered into the Event Form on the Parent Site, the Databases appear as expected (as long as the user has permission to access these Databases)

To ensure that the Database field can appear in the Child site, it MUST also be linked to the Child site

Each Database used needs to be linked to the Child Site. In this example, only the first database (the "Allergies" Database)will be linked to the child site

When Data is entered into the Event Form on the Child Site, you can see that only the field where the database was linked appears correctly

When Data is entered into the Event Form on the Child Site, you can see that only the field where the database was linked appears correctly

Because another database was used in the second database field, and it was not linked to the child site, this field cannot be selected.

N.B. Site Administrators need to pay attention to which Users they assign write and delete Database access to for Linked database. You do not want a database being linked across multiple sites with lots of users being able to edit and potentially add in duplicates
