Design Types

   MaestroThe UI design product.  |   Form Builder| |   18.05 This feature was updated in 18.05.

Maestro recognizes the 4 types of designs:

  • Form - a web application designed to capture data from applicants
  • Component - a modular building block that can be drag and dropped into forms, receipts, and templates
  • Template - a master form used to provide a consistent look and feel to multiple forms and receipts
  • Receipt a document of record that provides organizations and applicants with a reference of their submitted data

You can think of designs as different folders in the Navigator tree, where forms, components and templates are all the same thing, just with a different folder name. You can have different versions of them. The main difference is that templates and components need to be published to a library, which is why there is a default template library, and a form can be built and sent to Journey Manager to be used.

Maestro editor allows you to create, view and edit all 4 types of designs in a similar fashion because they have a lot of commonalities. However, there are unique controls pertaining to each type of design, which are explained throughout the documentation. For example, we don't need to differentiate between tagging a form and a template as it is the same. Where we get differences is tagging libraries that contains published content.


You can view a design's type in the Show Form Details dialog.
