==Adding elements to the field report template==
All objects on the field report template are considered elements. Elements include, but are not limited to, labels, text fields, tables, option values, lines, text areas, and date selection tools. The following sections describe the procedures for adding elements to the field report template.
===How to add report elements ===
There are several data elements that can be used across all field report templates. These data elements can be found in the UNCATEGORIZED folder immediately below the Available IMSMA Data Elements folder:
*Date of Report – Used to determine whether data in the field report should overwrite the existing data for the item. Data in the field report will overwrite data in field reports that have an older Date of Report.
*Report ID – If your site has a method for identifying field reports, you can use this field to enter the report identifier.
*Reported By – This field can be used to capture information about the person entering the field report.
*Reported By Position – This field can be used to indicate the position of the person entering the field report.
===How to add item attributes ===
After you have specified the page setup for the field report template, you can begin adding item attributes.
To add individual item attributes to the field report:
#Expand the item folder that contains the attribute by double-clicking the folder name in the elements pane.
#Expand the data category that contains the item attribute.
#Click the name of the attribute you would like to add to the field report.
#While holding down the left mouse button, drag the attribute to the form design pane.
#When the item attribute’s elements are in the desired position, release the mouse button.

| [[File:Warning.jpg]]|| If you drag an item attribute to the design pane which has previously been added, the following message displays:<br>
''At least one of the components you dragged onto the form already exists. Do you want to create a new entity?''<br>
Click the Yes button if you would like your field report template to capture data for another item record and add the item attribute to the field report template. Otherwise, click the No button; the item attribute will not be added to the field report template.
