Referencing a Location Type in a Form
The following section describes how to allow Users to select a Location from a Location Type using a Reference Field when designing a Form in ActivityInfo.
This way you allow Users to link the data they submit to a specific Location saving time and possible mistakes.
If you haven't created a Location Type you can check whether the builtin geo-database of ActivityInfo contains the Location Type you want and link your Form to that instead.
How to Reference a Location Type
- Select the Database that contains the Location Type, click on the Location Type to select it and click on the "OK" button.
- On the Form Designer, click on the "Save" button.
- The Reference Field has been added to the Form and Users will be able to choose from the Locations available in the Referenced Location Type.
