Protected Field - Protected Field is a checkbox that allows the field to be marked as protected. There are two ways to use a protected field, with a Profile Field or without a Profile Field.
1.Protected Field used in conjunction with Profile field. The user's information from the Profile Field will appear on the template, but the field will not appear in the left hand field list, nor will the user be able to edit the information.
2. Protected Field used without Profile Field. The field cannot be edited or even seen by end users, but are intended for those situations where the printer must return and add additional information to a template that is not available until the order is finalized (or perhaps until it is paid for), for example calling card numbers. Not available in the Interactive Designer version of eDoc
Default Value - If you would like the template to show default information that will be changed once the customer completes the entry, enter it here. Having the default value show helps the customer to see how the template will look when complete and can help guide them. Be aware though that if this field is required, the default information is considered a value and would not stop them if they have not completed that area with new information.
Entry Block - Entry Blocks can be a very helpful tool that can group and organized fields that require similar input, or that need additional instruction. The Entry Block option is not available in the Interactive Designer version of eDoc The example in this illustration (lower left) combines the fields "Name and Title", "Location" and "Images" within groups of boxes and displays additional instructions for the user. For the forms based version of eDocBuilder, you may want to group prompts for each page in the template. It may also shorten the length of your prompts on the page by displaying some next to each other instead of displaying in a long list. Address, City, State, etc. is a good example of this. Always consider your customer’s needs when applying this tool to your site.
To use this tool:
- Click the Create Entry Block button to expand the window. Enter an entry block name that describes the group of fields within the block. (i.e. "Address Information")
- Click the check box for "Force New Line in Entry Block" if you do not want the prompt to immediately follow another prompt when it could otherwise be possible to fit two or more prompts side by side.
- Enter block instructions if desired. This can be very helpful when you want to give the customer specific instructions for a group of prompts. Note: There is a 350 character limit for Entry Block Instructions.
- The entry block name may now be assigned to any fields that you choose by selecting the block name from the drop down for each of the fields you set up.
