Topics covered in this course include building a template, setting up Designer preferences, building a library group for custom objects, formatting a text field to place in the library, building a dynamic form with an expanding field, building a dynamic form with an expanding table, building a multi-signature form without auto populate date fields, multi-signature form with scripted auto populate date fields, building a calculation (FornCalc vs. JavaScript), and Saving a Form as Reader extended.

From the Articulate Storyline: Creating Software Simulations mini course: "I appreciated Kal's willingness to take questions and show us things "off script." The use of triggers/interactions in any of the view/try modes was most helpful."
