How to design a custom form that use User defined fields defined on a particular folder (not the def

Lucas Campos

Hi,
I'm developing some custom forms and I'd like to use user defined fields
that are defined at a particular folder. The problem is that when I create
or modify a form the designer just show me User defined fields of the Inbox
(The default Inbox) folder.
Is the any way to do that?

Best regards,

LucasC

In design mode the "user defined fields in the folder" only apply to fields
for the default folder of that type of item. For contacts for example it
would be the default Contacts folder.

Create the user defined properties you want in Inbox if you're customizing a
Message or Post form before you customize the form and your fields will be
available. You can do that from a table view using the Field Chooser. Click
the New button to add a new field to the user defined fields of that folder.

Or, start the form design session by creating a new item in the desired folder, then putting it in design mode with Tools |Forms | Design This Form.

I tried this:
1. Select the desired folder
2. File | New | Mail
3. Tools |Forms | Design This Form

But User defined fields just show me the inbox available fields. Should I
save the message (and move it to my folder if it is saved in the Draft
folder)? Any step I missed?

Thanks you very much Ken and Sue.

Mail items always default to the Inbox. Create the fields you want in the
Inbox folder.
