Data Events allow users to perform specific actions when certain events are triggered. Actions can include things like custom alerts and validation messages, setting field values, choices, labels, descriptions, requirement & visibility settings, HTTP requests and more. Event triggers include things like record loading, editing, validating, saving, value changing, and more.

This functionality enables listening for record changes, programmatically changing values, as well as building dynamic hyperlinks, writing custom quality assurance logic and much more! You can build out simple extensions or construct highly sophisticated applications with these components using standard JavaScript. Data Events essentially provide a flexible set of tools to control exactly what happens when your team collects data in Fulcrum.

As an advanced feature, Data Events are only available on the Professional Plan. Consult the developer documentation and Data Events guides for more information.

To access the data event builder click on the Data Events button in the right side of the app designer within the app settings section. Just above the save buttons.
