Combined entity form

Resco mobile apps normally display one entity per form. However, for Dynamics field service, there's an exception. When you open the form of Bookable Resource Booking, it can include also the form of its parent Work Order. This behavior can be controlled in project configuration: Combined Booking Form.

In Woodford, the form for each entity is configured separately as normal; the forms are combined in the app at runtime.

The combined form makes using client-side business logic a bit more complicated. Each form can have its own set of rules - but they affect only one half of the form. However, there is a way to affect the whole form:

  • Create the rules on the Bookable Resource Booking entity.
  • Use the built-in ParentEntity variable to query or modify Work Order properties.
