Create or edit a model-driven app main form for a table

In this topic you learn how to create or edit a main form for an table.

When you create a new form for a table, its form type is Main. When the new form opens, it is identical to the form named Information. You can add or edit columns, sections, tabs, navigation, and properties associated with the form, and then save the form.

Each main form is composed of one or more tabs. Each tab can have one or more sections. Each section contains one or more columns. If you want to base your new form on an existing one, you can clone a form.

Make sure that you have the System Administrator or System Customizer security role or equivalent permissions to perform this task.
