Designing Custom Folder Entry Forms
Form Buttons: Adds the
Group List: Adds a type-to-find field that enables users to find and select Vibe groups.
Guest User Name: Adds a field where users who are logged in to the Vibe site as Guest can specify
their name. This field is displayed on the entry form only when the Guest user is viewing the form.
HTML Editor Text Area: Adds an HTML text area where users can compose messages, create links,
upload pictures, and more.
Hidden Field: Adds a hidden element. When you design the custom form, you can use this element
to add boilerplate text to every entry that is created. This text is “hidden” because it does not appear
on the entry form when users are creating an entry; however, the text does appear on the entry view
after the entry is created.
Icon: Enables the workspace owner to choose an icon to represent the workspace.
Number: Adds a field that requires users to enter a number. Alphabetic characters are rejected.
Picture: Adds a field that enables users to browse for and upload pictures.
Places: Adds a workspace tree that enables users to browse to and select folders.
Radio Buttons: lets you display options that users can select with radio buttons.
Remote Application: lets you choose a remote application to display.
Remote applications must be created and enabled for use by the Vibe administrator.
Selectbox: lets you display options that users can select.
Send Email When Entry is Submitted: Adds an option that enables users to automatically send an
email to other Vibe users, after the entry is submitted.
Show Only When In Workflow States: lets you hide elements from being displayed on the entry
form unless the entry is in a designated state of a workflow.
Subscribe to This Entry: Adds an option that enables users to subscribe to the entry.
Survey: Adds options that enable users to create a survey.
Team List: Adds a field that enables users to specify teams.
Text: Adds a field where users can enter text.
Text Area: Adds an expandable field where users can enter text.

URL: Add a field that converts any text into a hyperlink.
User List: Adds a field that enables users to use the type-to-find functionality to specify other Vibe
User List Selectbox: Adds a list of users that you can choose from in the entry form. This list is
populated from the User List element that is defined on the folder view of the parent folder (for more
information about how to add a User List element to a custom folder view by either creating a new
folder view or modifying an existing folder view, see Chapter8, “Creating Custom Folder Views,” on
page 103). You need to reference this User List element by specifying the element’s data name in the
Source User List Element from the Parent Folder
when creating the User List Selectbox element.
Users External to Vibe: Vibe uses this option internally when synchronizing tasks and calendars to
another application by using iCal. You should not manually add this element to any form or view.
