Multiple Custom Layout Tabs per Template

Reach out to your Customer Experience Lead to take advantage of this feature. 

KaiNexus allows for even more customization options for designing the layout of your Templates. In addition to designing your Template’s layout into multiple sections, you can also choose to add or remove some additional tabs on the Template. This allows you to organize the information captured on your Template, not just through different panels, but through different tabs as well. This feature is HUGE because with this ability you can essentially create multiple Custom Layout Templates within a single Template Type within KaiNexus. The ability to hide unnecessary tabs on your Template will also help guide your Users towards a more intuitive experience when they work with Items submitted into KaiNexus.

 

Where are Tabs on my Template?

The Tab headers can be found near the top of your Template’s Work Panel. Clicking through them will toggle a different view within the Template that will display the related information within the respective panel.

How many other Tabs can I add to my Template?

This means defining the number of sections, the number of columns within each section, the panels displayed within each section, and even the fields that appear within each panel.
