Feature Request: Forms Document Title

posted on May 29, 2019 Show version history

So lately I've started adding code to most of my forms that updates the document.title attribute to the name of the form.

I find that this is a nice option because otherwise every tab for a Starting Form just says "New Submission" and this gives it a more custom name.

What I'd love to see is another checkbox under the Form title input field to make the form title also be the document/tab title.

I think it should be optional because I can see some instances in which "New Submission" may be preferred, but it would be a handy option that shouldn't require much to implement.

Although I'm doing it with JavaScript, a built-in option would hopefully get rid of that split second where it says "New Submission" before the ready event fires and the title is updated.

Now that I've thought about it more, another option would be to add this on the BP activity instead of on the form design. For example, underneath where you select the form for a Message Start Event or a User Task, have a spot to customize the title and maybe add "Form Title" as a variable/option.

Doing it this way would give us the option of only changing the title on the initial submission even if the same form is used for a later step, and if you did want to do it on a user task, a variable method would fit nicely with the new dynamic form selection for user tasks in 10.4
