(School) Manage Forms [EMS]

The Manage Forms page lets you create custom forms for instructors, students, and/or preceptors you have selected to complete the form.

To add a customized Training form, go to Options and select Manage Forms and add a new form. In the Settings tab, select Training from the Type drop-down. See the Manage Training topic for more.

You will see all active, inactive, and global forms under the tabs for your school listed on the Manage Forms page.


To add a new form, click the Add New Form button on the top right of the page, also make sure you are an administrator if you plan on sharing the form with your school.


Here you will create your new form. The first step is to give your form a title, description, and type. Click on the edit link or click the Settings tab to do this.


Once you have given this information you can choose to enable the form so that you will see it in the Active form tab once you save it. To do that, click the Enabled button on the top right, then click Save And Refresh to start building your form.



There are 2 ways to add a field to the form. You can click on any of the green buttons to add the specific form control to your page or you can drag and drop a form control into your page on the right.

To ensure that your custom form is assigned correctly, please select the appropriate category. If the form is meant to be associated with a skill, be sure to select "Skill." If it should be linked to a class, choose "Clinical" or "Lab Class" accordingly. This step is vital in ensuring that the form reaches the intended audience and serves its purpose effectively.
