The Configure Forms administrative menu is used to modify global form behavior within Newton. An admin user can configure which forms are displayed by default in the create form list, options for hiding pages with no entry data, form date defaults, print settings, and New York ID bar code setup.

Contents

Before You Begin

Access to the administrative configure forms menu requires the current operator to have the highest Security System access, level 9. The menu will not be available for users without the necessary permission.

Ic info black 24dp.png See: Security System for more information.

Hide forms on the forms list

The list of forms available to any operator when a new form is created can be customized to hide items that are not needed. Forms can be removed from the list individually, or in bulk by state or line type. Although the form is hidden by default, hidden forms can be selected on-the-fly by selecting "Show hidden and replaced forms" when a new form is created.

Ic info black 24dp.png See: Forms for more information.

  4. The settings column will display the print setting.
  5. Repeat the process for other forms and select Close when finished.

If the option is disabled, suppressing pages is not available for that specific form.

Printed form dates

The date displayed on a printed or emailed form can be dynamically changed to the current date instead of using the date saved on form.

  1. Select Setup -> Configure Forms.
  2. Select All Forms....
  3. Choose one of the following Printed Form Dates options.
    • Use date on form: Default option, which will continue to print the saved form date visible on the saved form.
    • Always use current date, unless policy is expired: When a form is printed/emailed, the date will automatically show the current date, as long as one of the policies is active.
    • Use current date when printed from My Insurance Dashboard, unless expired: Only forms generated by My Insurance Dashboard will automatically show the current date.
  4. Select Ok, then select Close.

Print settings

The print margins for all users can be modified for both portrait and landscape printers. Select Setup -> Configure Forms -> All Forms to override the default values.

The font used to print data on forms can be modified, including the display color. The setting will customize any printed, previewed, or emailed forms.

  1. Select Setup -> Configure Forms.
  2. Select Printer Font.
  3. Select the desired font and color, and select OK.
  4. Select Close.
