In TDOffice it is possible to determine which fields were visible, editable and mandatory via layout input screens. This is also possible in ControlOffice, but now by means of drag & drop and the screen can be divided into 3 columns to use the full width of your screen. In addition, the number of free fields that were limited to 10 in TDOffice has become unlimited. The free fields can be created separately, and then added to each entry screen, such as a work order entry screen, notification entry screen, hour booking entry screen, etc.
