Forms view

The Forms view provides you access to the builder to design forms that you can embed in HTML pages. Forms can be accessed through the GraphQL API.

Forms let you collect information that can be further handled by external apps. For example, an app can display a form for new clients to fill in and save the data in FA or print it out as a PDF. To implement this, the form should be included in a process via the User task element.

The Forms view shows the List of forms with the following columns:


The form name is for you to distinguish between the forms, it isn’t shown anywhere else.
