When you open a form template in a project, Qeystone imports all the data fields that are either directly shared to a control or used in a formula. Therefore, you can use forms to add data fields to additional project templates quickly and consistently.
When a data field exists on a form, and you try to open the form in a project that contains the same data field, but with different properties, Qeystone declares a conflict and does not import the data field into the project.
For example, an existing project has a list field called Region, which has two values: North America and Latin America. A Project Charter also has a list field called Region, but it has four values: North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.
Because the Region field in the Project Charter does not have the same list values as the Region field in the project, it is not imported. To prevent this conflict, delete the Region field in the project before you open the Project Charter.
|Data fields||Unique data fields that do not already exist in the project.||A data field that has the same name and category as an existing data field, but a different definition.|
|User-entered data values||User-entered data values in controls that are not shared to data fields, including rows in data tables that are not shared to multiple entry categories.||User-entered data values in controls that are shared to data fields, including rows in data tables shared to multiple entry categories.|
