Different case selector screens

Hi all, Is it possible to determine what information should show in the
case selector list based on the form that is being opened? I am thinking
through an application now that it would be useful to see different
information based on the activity that was being performed. Thanks!

Hey Jon,

This seems really similar to what Dr. Reddy just asked. Basically, in the
current scheme on HQ, the detail screens are tightly coupled with the group
of forms (the “Module”) and cannot be directly configured per form. This
was a well-intentioned simplification that seems to have served us well but
which we as a community have possibly outgrown. The feedback we’re getting
about this now will probably influence our choices when designing the next
generation app builder which we will begin to work on soon, but that
unfortunately isn’t on the map for another few months.

For right now, the best workaround is to have one form per module and to
select to put the forms of each on the first screen, thus having them all
show up together while having their detail screens configured separately.

I hope that works for now, and we’ll keep you updated on future
developments.

That sounds like a perfectly acceptable workaround. Wasn’t aware that forms from multiple modules could be grouped onto the same screen. Thanks!
