Templates- In progress


Electronic forms enhance Simploud’s flexibility by adding the ability to attach smart forms to assist with decision making or to capture structured information in an intuitive way. Using electronic forms can be for decision making (e.g., determining if a complaint is reportable or not), checklists for completion, decision trees, scorecards, questionnaires, surveys and other use cases that requires structured form that should be filled by the users.

E-forms are created based on predefined templates that are being created per each object as instructed in this section.


The template is a foundation of  the electronic form.
The electronic form rests on a template in order to be created, in Simploud there are two types of such templates – Standard and flowchart.
