Add table row


The Add table row rule allows you to add rows within a specified table. You can set values for each field within the newly created row by mapping values into them. For assigning values to each field in a row, you can use manually typed text or use other fields from your process. By default you need to give a value to a field in the newly created row, but can also add rows with no values. You can do that by clicking on the Bin/Trash icon Bin/Trash button in the New row mapping as shown in the image below:

Add table row - delete mapping

This will delete the mapping fields and allow you to add the rule without assigning values to a field in the new row. The new row mapping should look as follows:

When to use

You can use this rule if you want more dynamic and more automated tables. By removing the original add row button from the table and adding a new button with the Add table row rule attached, you can map specific row fields to automatically appear with values when adding the rows. Take a look below how to add and use the Add table row rule.

You can add this rule:

  • to a field
  • to a form
  • to a process (the rule will run on load)
