Improve the user experience by creating optional activities that respond to changes in a Table layout. For example, if a user reorders a list of tasks to display the most important assignments first, you can use activities to propagate the changes back to the data source and save their preferred setting.

  1. On the Section form, click the table that you want to edit, and then click the View properties icon.

  2. In the Layout properties window, on the Operations tab, expand the Advanced node.

  3. Specify when to run activities in the table:

    Choice Action
    Before the table updates
    1. Select Run activity before grid update.

      The activity field displays the default activity.
    2. Optional:

      To change the default activity, in the field next to the check box, press the Down arrow key, and then select a new activity.

    After the table updates
    1. Select Run activity after grid update.

      The activity field displays the default activity.
    2. Optional:

      To change the default activity, in the field next to the check box, press the Down arrow key, and then select a new activity.

    When a row is added (non-optimized tables only)
    1. In the Row operations section, enable row editing.

    2. Select Run activity on row add.

    3. In the field next to the check box, select the activity to run.

    4. Open the previously selected activity, and then add a step that adds a row to the list.

    When a row is removed (non-optimized tables only)
    1. In the Row operations section, enable row editing.

    2. Select Run activity on row delete.

    3. In the field next to the check box, select the activity to run.

    4. Open the previously selected activity, and then add a step that deletes a row from the list.

  4. Click Submit.

  5. On the Section form, click Save.
