Linked Profile Fields in an Event Form can be set to Manual Update so Profile Information can be updated without having to leave the Event Form
Previously, to update a Linked Profile Field in an Event Form, a user needed to save the Event Form entry, then go to the Profile Pages and open the Profile Form, edit it and save it, and then go back to the original entry and open it and save it! Now, a Profile Form can be set to be updated while the existing Event Form entry stays open.
This Event form is set up with fields that link to specific Profile Form Fields
Now a Profile field can be set to be updated in the same manner as a Linked Event Field, via the Manual Update feature in the Advanced Field Properties
There is a new Manual Update capability for Linked Profile Fields. Once set to True, a manual update button will appear at the top of the Event Form for this Profile Form Field.
Note, the default will be Manual Updated = False
For the fields you want to appear for updating, set any of the fields to Manual Update = True in the Advanced field properties
By Default, Manual Update will be set to False. For this example the fields in the section are set to False
N.B.If two fields from the same Profile Form (e.g. Field A and B) are linked into an Event Form, and Field A is set to False and Field B is set to True, the Profile Form Manual update button will still appear at the top of the Event Form. However, if both Field A and Field B were set to False, the NO button would appear at the top of the Event Form.
When data is entered for an athlete in the Event Form, any Linked Profile Forms with Fields set as Manual Update =True will appear at the top of the Event Form
A link to enter/update information for the the fields set to Manual Update appear at the top of the Event Form and the name of the Profile Form appears. Only one button appears per Linked Profile Form Field.
Click on the name of the Profile Form that you want to update and the corresponding Profile Form appears for editing
Edit the Profile Fields and save the Profile Form
The updated infomation will link in and then the Event Form can be saved.
The data is saved and the entry appears on the athlete history page.
All linked Profile Information updates in all prior records, as is the status quo when Profile data is updated.
N.B. This functionality is NOT available on mobile applications
Manual Update is not available for Event or Profile Forms on the Mobile applications
N.B. This functionality is NOT available offline on the installed app as Profile Information cannot be edited offline
N.B. This functionaliy is NOT available for use in Profile Forms, e.g., the update button does not appear on Profile Forms when data is linked from one Profile Form to another
If you have Profile Fields linked from one Profile Form to another,and manual is set for the linked field, the manual update button will NOT appear.
