Workflow/Report Template questions

Hey Guys,

I have a few questions about templates.

Im making a receiving program which has multiple nested tables in the receiving form. They are Film, Masters, and Display.

1 of these will all ways be filled in, but they don’t all need to be filled in.

In my report i would like to fill in a table for displays only if there are rows in displays. etc. How would this be achieved? I would like to have them separated somehow so having them all in 1 table wont work.

Im also wondering about nested tables. How are these implemented into a report?

The Nest goes as follows.
Receiving Table --> Display Table --> Display Lot Number Table.
Receiving Table --> Film Table --> Film Lot Number Table.
Receiving Table --> Master Table --> Master Lot Number Table.

Take a look at IF expressions for templates:

They allow you to completely hide certain parts of your workflow based on criteria.


For instance, here’s a workflow template for an invoicing solution I’ve built into an app.

If I zoom out:

You can see there’s two tables that look pretty much the same, but there are subtle differences - enough that merited the duplication of a table and the use of template IF expressions.


And for nesting things, have you checked out the documentation on workflow templates? Check out Start expressions.
