Source Template Access to Person Details

17 September 2019 - 08:05 PM

Hi All,


I am making a few new source templates - one of which is based on the default Birth Registration, local level template that comes standard with RM 7. In the template there is a field called Name which is designed to accept the name of the person who the record was for, but this is a citation field requiring explicit input to be made for information that is already in my data, essentially forcing double entry of name information.


Is there a way to use the existing name of the person to pre-populate that field? It seems as if the source templates are completely detached from the data associated with the person with no way of seeing it.


Is this truly the case? Or is there some sneaky way to see the data from within the source templates?


Kind regards,
