  4. Process the case by entering values in the provided fields and submitting each form.

    • In the right panel, click Change to switch the existing layout to any of the standard or custom predefined design templates.
    • In the right panel, click Settings to modify template parameters, headings, and other presentation options for run time use.
    • Drag the fields to rearrange their order in the view.
    • Update the form by adding sections, adding controls, and editing the fields that it contains. For example, you can modify the display mode of a field or add a new field to the form.
  6. Click Done. Result: The changes that you made are displayed immediately and you are automatically returned to your active case.Tip: Use the case life cycle gadget in the header of a case to configure more options at run time.
