1 Overview

Forms are very good at storing data and sharing data. Sometimes a secure form is required, for example in HR processes that has more security than normal. In these instances blocking the data in the form from everyone but the owner of the record is required.


The form is exactly the same as any other form, however it has some distinct differences especially regarding being to extract data and the security surrounding the form.


These forms have extremely limited reporting as the data is secured from everyone but the creator of the form and the Owner of the record.


The author of the form will always have full access to the form. This cannot be changed.
