View form

The view form opens when a user goes to the app page and clicks a document’s name.


The main area of the form shows the preview of the file added when creating the document. The toolbar includes the following controls:

  • Download. Download the file to your computer.
  • Edit. Modify the document’s text. This button is available for users with editing permissions in the app. Whether the control is shown is managed by the administrator in the widget settings on the item form.
