Article Series on Design Studio, Part 9: Putting It All Together

Our focus, in this article series, is to show you how you can use Design Studio to make business processes simpler and easier-to-perform. In a previous article (see http://www.danalytics.com/guru/letter/archive/2007-11.htm) we focused on using Design Studio’s Page Designer to render a simple list of vendors and display their open invoices. Taking this concept even further--by combining Portal Page Designer, a Portal Page Data Query (DME) object and a form object (a “formlet”) customized using Form Designer--this article demonstrates the delivery of a comprehensive solution to a real business problem. I’m extremely grateful to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for letting me share this story with you.  Read More..

Regenia, I think you would need to use the Landmark configuration console and look at what are called "calculated fields".

    Inforum 2014

    Although I didn’t attend Inforum 2014, this is the backdrop against which I watched the keynotes via streaming video and digested the executive/analyst briefings. “’Designing emotion into the product is now something you really have to think about explicitly and measure yourself against’, says Brad Smith, CEO of Intuit, the maker of personal finance and […]
