ARM provides a set of standard templates, for example for the creation of new users. Based on the template, ARM generates the input masks. Use templates customized to your needs and create new objects in a standardized, simplified and accelerated way. The most important advantages are described below.
Dropdown menus and lookups
Assign input fields with drop-down menus from which users can choose. Depending on the selection, additional fields can be filled automatically. You avoid incorrect entries, accelerate the input and have a standardized result.
For the location field, choose "Berlin", "Munich", "Vienna". Based on the selection, the fields "Street", "ZIP" and "City" are filled automatically.
Validate whether the value entered matches certain rules.
- Minimum length for a password
- Check the format of a telephone number
When creating a user, specify in which groups the new user becomes a member.
Specify which entries must be made (must not remain empty).
Set default values
Assign fields with default values - changeable or not changeable.
Determine how a resulting field is filled from entries that have already been made.
The login name and the email address are automatically generated from the first name and last name.
Hide input fields
If certain inputs are not required in your company or are already filled with defaults, hide individual input fields or entire areas. This reduces the complexity of the input masks.
