txConnect Admin > Administrator Options > Settings > Forms Management > Form Fields
This page allows you to set options for the fields that will be used for student enrollment, registration, and data update forms. Examples of fields are first name, last name, middle name, and birth date.
The list of Available Fields is added automatically. For each field, you indicate if the field is visible and add any instructions. By default, all fields are visible and no action is required; however you can hide a field globally and/or add default instructions as needed.
Some districts allow you to select document storage (DOCSTOR_) fields which allow parents to upload supporting registration forms (immunization record, birth certificate, etc.).
On this page you will set options for the fields. You will add the fields to a form in a subsequent step.
