If any fields in an Event Form are linked to another form these fields will appear in the "Linked to:' section immediately below the Event Form.

If any Event Form has Related Events, these will appear as a Field Number and the Related Event Form/s name/s will be listed

Any fields in the system that are set as "critical info" appear in the "Critical Information" list (as shown above). You can turn these off if you need to and the sidebar is becoming too cluttered.

You can see which Event Forms have fields that are set up as "Status Fields"

At the very bottom of the Application Specification any Event Form/s which have status fields in them will be listed. You can only have one question type set as a status field, so unless the questions are set up exactly the same on both forms (e.g. an availability field in an illness form and an availability field in an injury form) you will need to remove one of the status fields or the status colours will not work correctly.
