Elements of the Performance Form can be customized in Edit Fields and Sections. Here you can add, delete and re-order sections. There are several different kinds of sections that can appear only once on a Performance Form template. The configuration options within each type of section differs. You will learn how to configure each of these sections in Admin Center and in XML.
Select the buttons to explore the most common performance form sections and where you can configure them in Manage Templates.
Adding New Sections
The process for adding any kind of section to a form template is identical. By selecting the Add New Section button, a list with available options to add a new section displays.
Remember, there are certain section types that can only be added to a template once.
If you are configuring the new section through the instance, the system does not allow you to create duplicates of those section types. When using XML, your template will not validate. Once the section is added to the template, you can drag-and-drop it to the desired location.
New Section Addition in the XML Template
For additional goals and competencies sections, it is easiest to select the code for the entire existing goal or competency section and paste it either before or after the existing section, depending on where you wish the section to appear in the instance. From the pasted code, you can make the required configurations to that section. To ensure that all sections appear in the desired order on the form, remember to change the
<fm-element index>of this section, and all the other sections.
