To specify the form that appears when the user clicks the New Post In This Folder command
• In the When Posting To This Folder, Use drop-down list box, click the form that you want to appear when the user clicks Post In This Folder after selecting New on the File menu. If you do not want a custom form to appear, click Post in the When Posting To This Folder, Use drop-down list box.
• If your organization uses both Microsoft Exchange Client and Outlook, select the Automatically Generate Microsoft Exchange Views check box. This option generates Microsoft Exchange views for the folder so that the views can be seen by users of the Microsoft Exchange Client, the predecessor to Outlook.
This property is only available for Outlook table views.
Test Forms and Views
After you publish forms and define views for the folder, you need to test them to make sure they work as expected.
To test the forms, open the folder in which the forms are published, and then click the menu commands that are associated with the form on the Actions menu. In the form, enter the information you want, and then click the Post button. After posting the item in the folder, double-click it to open it and make sure it shows information correctly in the form. You should test each form in the folder.
To test views, open the folder you want to test, and then click each of the views in the Current View drop-down list box on the Advanced toolbar. If the folder has multiple forms, you should post several types of items in the folder before testing the views.
When you finish testing the forms and views, you can delete the test items you posted in the folder.
