The Instance Display screen allows you to define how action instances will appear on the item detail screen.
The top portion of the screen displays a sample action instance. As you change the title and subtitle the sample instance will show you how it will look.
Below the sample instance is the Instance Title section where you configure how the main line of text will appear. This is followed by the Instance Subtitle section where you configure how the smaller line of text below the main text will appear. Both of these sections work the same. Attributes appear with their name in square brackets [ ]. Text appears in quotes allows you to see any spaces. Links appear as vertical double headed arrows.
No changes are made until the Save button is tapped. If you decide you don't wish to keep any changes you have made then tap the Cancel button.
The Instance Title and Instance Subtitle sections work the same. A line of text can consist of any combination of attribute values and text. Tap the Add Attribute row to select an attribute to add to the line. Tap the Add Text row to enter text to add to the line. You can reorder the line components by pressing and dragging the reorder handles on the right edge of the row you wish to move. To delete something tap the red circle icon to the left. Confirm the deletion by tapping the Delete button. Tap anywhere else to keep the component.
There will be cases where the text you add should only appear if an associated attribute has a value. To make this work you need to link the text to the attribute. Tap the Add Link row to add a link (vertical double arrow). Then reorder things so the link is between an attribute and its associated text. Without a link, the text will appear whether the attribute has a value or not. The linked text can appear before or after (or both) an attribute. Text can also be linked to an attribute before and after the text. In this case the text will only appear if both attributes have a value.
