One of the most powerful feature in Caisis 4.0 is the addition of Dynamic Forms and Meta Data. With the addition of these features, the admin has complete control over the look and feel of their data entry forms, as well as focus on their disease specific areas.

Meta Data

Meta Data is information about database fields which describe the type of data these fields can hold, as well as the way the user sees these fields (HTML controls). Each table in the database has an associated Meta Data table.
