The Forms module of ACMS effectively performs a form builder function. Users with appropriate privileges can build custom forms (templates) and then allocate them to people using Audiences. This allows custom data to be captured to resolve a number of gaps in processes that could not otherwise be made fully paperless. 

Examples of things customers can do with Forms include:

  • Capture driving hours for driver managers in order to maintain competence
  • Capture details of time taken for various steps in a process in order to facilitate the measurements required to design process improvements
  • Capture details of manual tasks (e.g. the amount of a product used when servicing a carriage)

Form Types and Form Properties

Form Types are templates for Forms. They contain Form Properties in much the same way Incident Properties are used within the Incident Module.

Form Categories

Forms can be organised into categories to make them easier to find. This provides a hierarchal structure (like a file system) for grouping related Form Types together.

Forms Workbench

The Forms Workbench works as follows:

  1. Each new required template is created as new Form Type
  2. New Form Types are placed in the desired Form Category
  3. Form Properties are configured on the Form Type (to define the questions asked on the form, and also to constrain the answers that can be given)
  4. Form Types are then made available to other users on the basis of Audiences
  5. Facilities exist within the Form Workbench to manage the Form Categories so an authorised user can move Form Types around, create new categories and re-organise existing ones.
  6. Users create Forms using the Form Types
  7. Data entered by users can be shown in reports or on dashboards
