Form type in application structure API

Hi there,

In the application builder you can chose to create either a "register" or "followup" form type when creating forms.

From an API perspective it would be interesting to be able to understand the type of the form. The application structure API seems to be the correct endpoint to use for structural metadata. The application API contains modules which each contain forms. Is this type information, whether a form is of type "register" or "followup", available in the API?

If not, would it be feasible to add a form type property to the form object? Something similar to formType: REGISTER|FOLLOWUP.

Hey Lars,

Exposing this information is a good idea. The "register"/"followup" paradigm in the app builder is a bit of UI gloss on top of a more complex structure that might be hard to retrofit to the API, but having some general notion of how the form interacts with the underlying case data would certainly be very valuable for external integrations.

Could you say more about how you're hoping to use this information?

thanks,
Cory
