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 Sintel Forms stores such data as individual list items in a related SharePoint list.
Steps to create a form containing a related list.
- Create the main list
This will be the list storing the form data, in our example, it will be called "Requests"
- Create a related sublist
This list will allow adding child items into the form, in our example, we will call it "Request Details"
- Create a lookup field
This lookup field must be created in the related sublist ("Request Details") and it will look up the main list ("Request") in our example we will call it "RelatedRequest".
- Place the related list on the form
Once the related sublist is created and it contains the Lookup field you can launch the Sintel Forms Designer on the main list. The "RequestDetails" related sublist 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.
- Configure Related List columns
After the RequestDetails is placed inside a section, click it in the designer area to open its properties. You can now show/hide columns, change column width and adjust other properties.
- Save and Exit: now you can enjoy adding related items.
