Another feature change is in the Forms Designer. When a change is made to teh form where a new data field is added or modified in most cases it required a full download to all regions. In Onguard 7, A specific forms download is featured meaning that the long tedious process of full download is no longer required. A complete forms change to region servers can occur in minutes.
