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

This article describes how to create or edit a main form for a table.

When a new form is created for a table, its form type is Main. When the new form opens, it is identical to the form named Information. Columns, sections, tabs, navigation, and properties associated with the form can be edited and the form can then be saved.

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, also called form fields. Forms can be cloned to provide a simpler starting point for form development. To clone a form, open the form you want to copy in the form editor, on the command bar select the down arrow next to Save, select Save As, enter the name for the new form, and then select Save.


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