When running Webform Server or Viewer in a portal environment, you may want to prevent users from saving and opening forms by disabling the buttons in the toolbar. In general, the philosophy of a portal is to provide a central location to work on forms. Allowing the user to save or load forms from their local computer may conflict with that philosophy, and may even cause unexpected problems with your workflow or other aspects of your portal application.
To disable the save
buttons in the toolbar, you must use the ufv_settings
option. Place this option in the global page of the form, and use the menu
setting to turn the save
buttons off, as shown:
Exceptions to this practice
You can disregard this practice if your users need to work offline. In this case, you should test your application to ensure that users can load forms into your portal without any problems.
