Unique identifier for the form


Name of the form. This allows you to easily identify this form in other places (e.g. when creating a Datalist)

Table Name

Name of the table used by the Joget to store the form data during a workflow process. The Joget core automatically creates the table and assigns a name to it (i.e., 'app_fd_mytablename'). You can choose to specify a table name that already exists; new columns will be added to that table when you build your form.  We will discuss more of this later on.


Description of the purpose that the form serves.

There are many different form fields (i.e., TextField, SelectBox, Hidden Field, etc.) to choose from when your are designing your forms.  You can drag-and-drop them on your form canvas and then edit their properties. 


The 'ID' in the property editor is a unique identifier.
The Joget core uses this ID as a column name within the table associated to the form (e.g. c_patientAssignment in the figure above).
When a user enters a value in the field during a workflow process, the value is stored in that column.
If the ID has never been used in previous forms associated to the same table, a new column will be created.
If the ID, on the other hand, has been used before, that column will be used. 
It is important to note that when someone enters a value when completing a form during a workflow process, that value will overwrite the existing one.


"Label" is the human-readable identifier for the form field.


"Value" is the static value or hash variable that you would like to store in that column.
