The Custom Forms tool is a new feature in CareSmartz360. It allows you to create new forms and/or modify existing templates by choosing from a wide variety of fields, also allowing data validation and conditional display logic. Form templates can be created and used for Client Assessments and/or any other forms which an Agency uses for their clients. Please note that enabling and creating new forms to use across the agency requires Admin permissions to access Settings.
