I am using OVSD 4.5, SP18 running on WinXP and DB is MS SQL 2000. I want to map a respective CI form to a specific template. for instance, i create 5 different CI Forms (say hardware form, software form etc) and 5 different CI templates (say Hardware Template, Software Template etc...) Now if I choose Hardware Template without addition selection, i want the template to open using Hardware Form and similarly when I open Software Template, I want this template to use Software Form.
I could map the CI template to its respective CI Form using "Admin Console --> Data --> Codes --> General --> Generic Relation Type", but unable to make use of this at the front end.
whosoever used this feature, request you kindly help me on this regard.
This is not possible from any of the out of the box features. However, you can use the sd_dataform features, to open respective forms for CIs based on categories, using the Smart Actions. For more details about configuraing the action, please refer to the below link.
