If you attempt to publish a field report template from another IMSMA installation, you may be required to reconcile the CDFs in the field report template to CDFs that are defined in IMSMA. Reconciliation is necessary to ensure that the data is associated with the correct CDF.

If you attempt to publish a field report template that contains CDFs which have been defined outside of your IMSMA installation, the Reconcile CDFs window displays with a message stating, “This form contains CDFs which are not in your database. Please reconcile the following CDFs before publishing:”
