Overriding the default tab order of input fields on forms

On work object forms and flow action forms, the user input fields follow the default tab order of left-to-right and top-to-bottom. However, in certain situations, you might want to have a different tab order on the input fields based on the business process.

To change the tab order, you can place a dynamic layout within another dynamic layout and controls so that the tab order follows the normal order within the first layout, and then advances to the next layout.

For example, in the following figure, the list of fields are presented in a single dynamic layout and the default tab order is from left-to-right and top-to-bottom.

To change the tab order, embed two separate dynamic layouts within the primary layout and use the fields in each dynamic layout separately, as displayed in the following figure.
