Forms Page

From the Forms page, you can restrict or grant user access to screen forms.

Form Access: Specify whether the end user has access to recorded screens.

No Restriction on User Access to Screen Forms: When selected, any host screen to which the user can navigate will be accessible, and the option Select a Form to Show when an Inaccessible Form is Encountered is unavailable.

Restrict User Access to Recorded Screen Forms: When selected, users can browse only between screens viewed by the application developer during design time. Attempts to browse outside of these available forms will direct the user to the form specified under Select a Form to Show when an Inaccessible Form is Encountered.

Restrict User Access to Customized Screen Forms: When selected, users can browse only between screens that were altered by the application developer during design time. The developer must specifically modify the screens in some way; modifications made by rules or themes are insufficient. A new label, even if blank, will constitute a change. Attempts to browse outside these available forms will direct the user to the form specified under Select a Form to Show when an Inaccessible Form is Encountered.

Note For example, if you were designing an application for an Accounts Payable department, you might want to restrict certain users from seeing an account summary form containing dollar figures, but want them to have access to an account maintenance form where they could update vendor addresses and phone numbers. You could set up a specific form to tell a user that he or she has been denied access to a form, and at the same time, suggest an alternative course of action.

Select a Form to Show when an Inaccessible Form is Encountered: If you chose either the Restrict User Access to Recorded Screen Forms option or the Restrict User Access to Customized Screen Forms option, select a form from the Error drop-down list to display when an inaccessible form is encountered.
