This article describes the situations in which the VTL and OSF library formats should be used with Virtual Ticket.

Workgroups contains a new VTL form library format that can be used when importing/exporting form libraries from or into the database. Which format you use (VTL or OSF) will be determined by your needs:

WHEN TO USE OSF

  • Import forms from older systems
  • Export forms from Workgroups 2010 to be imported into older systems
  • Import/Export of forms that do not make use of new Workgroups 2010 features (document organizer, editable variable enhancements, control ids, etc.)

WHEN TO USE VTL

  • Import/Export forms that make use of new Workgroups 2010 features (document organizer, editable variable enhancements, control ids, etc.)
