Add record pages

All Creatio products

You can set up several record pages for a section, e.g., for different types of section records.

Add multiple edit pages to a section 

  1. Open a section, e.g., Requests.

  2. In the Section pages area, click btn_chapter_mobile_wizard_new_role.png Add page.

    Note. The Section pages area view changes once you save the newly created section in the Section Wizard: the Set up page button disappears, the Edit page and Add page buttons appear instead (Fig. 1).

    Attention. To add multiple section pages, you need to configure the section main page by clicking Edit page first. Read more >>>

  3. Populate the fields in the opened window (Fig. 3):

  1. Which field will determine the page layout? – select the field, whose values will determine, which page to use for each record. For example, in the Requests section, you can set up different edit pages for different request categories: online requests and offline requests.

    Note. The corresponding lookup column must be added to the section page, otherwise, it will not be available for selection in the drop-down list of the Which field will determine the page layout? field.

  2. Select the value of the "..." field for which the new page will be used – the value of the lookup field selected at the previous step. You can specify which page to use for each value in the lookup.

    Note. For new sections, populate the corresponding lookup with values in advance, You can also enter a new value directly in the Select the value of the "..." field for which the new page will be used field and Creatio will offer to add this lookup value. Read more >>> 

    • Page name – the name of the new section page. The field is populated with a default value that looks as follows: “Edit page: “Section name” (Name of the corresponding lookup value).” For example, “Edit page: "Requests" (Online).” You can rename the page using any custom name to make it clearer for other users, e.g., ”Online requests”  (Fig. 3).

  3. Click Continue.

  4. On the Content Designer page that opens, configure the added page.

    Note. You can set up additional section pages similarly to setting up the first section page.

    Multiple pages of the same section can differ from each other: you can apply separate business rules for the page fields and link different section cases to each section page, as well as add different field groups and details that are only relevant for this particular request category.

Disable section page 

  1. Delete the value in the Values of the “...” lookup column in the Section pages area.

  2. After you delete the data, the field will automatically set to “Not used.” The page will be saved, but will not open for users (Fig. 4).

  3. Click Save to save the changes in the section.

You can remove a page from the list of section pages completely:

  1. In the Section pages block of the Section Wizard, click btn_com_roles_actions_menu.png next to the name of the section page you want to delete.

  2. Select Remove from the drop-down menu (Fig. 5).

Change the column that determines the page view 

  1. In the Section pages area, click btn_com_folder_filter.png.

  2. In the opened window, select the new lookup field, e.g., “Type” instead of “Category.”

    Note. After you change the column, the Values of the “...” lookup field value will be set to “Not used” for all edit pages configured earlier.

  3. Specify the selected lookup values that will use the configured edit pages.

  4. Rename the pages accordingly if needed (Fig. 6).
