Configuring Related Sublist to be used on a form

Sintel Forms allows using one or more related lists within a form. This functionality is similar to the repeating table available in the InfoPath with the difference that the Sintel Forms stores such data in SharePoint lists.

Steps to create a form containing a related list.

  1. Create the main list

    This will be the list storing the form data, in our example it will be called "Requests"

  2. Create a related sublist

    This list will allow adding child items into the form, in our example we will call it "Request Details"

  3. Create a lookup field

    This lookup field must be created in the related sub list (#2) and it will look up the main list (#1) in our example we will call it "RelatedRequest".

  4. Place the related list on the form

    Once the related sub list is created and it contains the Lookup field you can launch the Sintel Forms Designer on the main list. The "RequestDetails" related sub list list will appear in the List Fields section. Drag the RequestDetails and drop it into a section. In the example below RequestDetails will be dropped into the "Curricula Changes" section.

  5. Configure Related List columns

    After the RequestDetails is placed inside a section, click it in the designer area to open it's properties. You can now show/hide columns, change column width and adjust other properties.
