Example of Usage

Here we see an example of a NITRO form that has been configured using collapsible sections to group related columns. This form also leverages the Cascading Lookup, Advanced Lookup, User Info filler and Associated Items functionality available through the NITRO apps. A color theme has been applied to the form directly from the app.

Forms can also be grouped together to create list items that use forms from a specific ‘Form Group’ rather than the default forms configured on the list.
