About the Favorites Form

This service stores the views and records that are accessible as links through a user's Favorites menu. These records are created automatically when a user added a record or view to their Favorites menu. This web form was added for the web interface in Aptify 5.5.2.


When Aptify Web 5.5.2 is installed, any existing view or record shortcuts are converted into favorites so that users can access them through the Aptify web interface. Any new views or records that are added to as a shortcut must also be added as a Favorite if a user wants them accessible in the Aptify web interface as well.
