Example:to create a new person transaction (in a popup window) for the current user:
<input class="Button" type="button" value="Open" />
To create a new company transaction (in a popup window) for the current organization:
<input class="Button" type="button" value="Open" />

HTML Template

  • This section may be renamed to match the terminology of your copy of SmartSimple. In the illustration above, HTML Template has been renamed to Grant Template because Level 1s have been renamed as "Grants" in this example.
  • Clicking on the "Sample Template" hyperlink will insert a default HTML template into this setting, overwriting the current contents.
  • See the Template Page - HTML Template for examples of implementation.
  • Ensure that the content of any HTML templates confirm to all Accessibility legislation.

Confirmation Template

  • The Confirmation Template will be displayed after the Template Page is submitted by the end user. Variables such as sslogic can be implemented in this setting to present different confirmation pages depending on how the external page is completed.
  • Clicking on the "Sample Template" hyperlink will insert a default HTML template into this setting, overwriting the current contents.
  • See the Confirmation Template page for examples of implementation.
  • Ensure that the content of the Confirmation template conforms to Accessibility legislation..

Coordinating the Formatting of the External Page with Internal Formatting

  • By default, the Level 1 external page will not pick up the formatting of the internal page (for example, Title Bars configured as tabs will be displayed as simple Title Bars).
  • To use the formatting defined within SmartSimple for the external page, enable the "Use Internal Formatting" setting on the Template Settings page.
