Linked Text Fields
You can link text fields from one Event Form into another Event Form
Go to the Calculation section and select which Form you want to link from (all of the Event Forms on the system will be available to choose from)
Now choose the Field that you want to link from out of all of the Fields in that Event Form
Select from all of the fields in the previously chosen Event Form. You can actually link to many different types of field and use them in a Linked Text field. You can pull through numeric, option, and even date fields but you do not have the same options to use these fields in calculations or in the reports section.
For this example we are going to link to the comments field.
Now choose the Values (discussed in the first lesson on Linked Fields). For this example we are using Newest.
Set up the Manual Update and the Update Range according to your needs (discussed in the first lesson on Linked Fields)
Just as additional examples we have also included a number, a date and an option field from the Anthropometry form as linked Text fields
The image here shows how the Text fields look in a Data Capture Form on the system. The most recent data is pulled through.
This just gives you an example of how the fields look when you use text linked fields. Be mindful that if you link numeric fields or option fields you cannot use these as filters in the Reports section as they will only be recognised as Text.
