Bound apps

Using the Bound app setting, you can bind items of one app with another. Items of the child app are created on the page of the parent app and remain unsaved in the system until you save the parent app.

Let's see how the Bound App setting works, taking as an example the Contact and the Supplementary Agreement apps.

Supplementary agreements are always created under a specific contract. Therefore, the Contract is a parent app, and the Supplementary Agreement is a child or dependent app. In order to avoid confusion, the item of the child app should be saved after the main document (contract) has already been entered into the system. This can be easily done using the bound app setting.

Bind apps

To bind apps:

Step 1. Open the form of the Contract app and add an app type field to it. In the field setting, select Supplementary Agreement and select the Bound app option. BA 1

Step 2. Now open the form of the Supplemental Agreement app and add an app-type field to the form. In the filed settings, select the Contract app. Note that if you working in the advanced mode, the Contract filed should be added to the Create tab.

Working with bound apps  

Add a new Contract item. To do this, in the right upper corner of the app page click the +Contract button.

After this, a pop-up will open for creating a new contract, with the Supplementary agreement field.

BA 3

Click the Create button to open a create form for a new Supplementary Agreement.

BA 4

 

The Contract field is not editable. It will be filled automatically after the contract is saved in the system.

Fill out all fields and click Save. The system will create a new Supplementary Agreement bound to the contract. It will be saved in  only after you save the contract, and will also be added to the contract's page.

Please note that if you later delete the supplemental agreement, it will be deleted from the contract's page, too.
