Once you understand how to configure the data pool and unleash it on your forms, you will be crying tears of joy! Until you make friends with the data pool though, you might only be crying tears of sadness. Let’s fix that!

The data pool makes it possible to use information from records in PeopleSoft on your forms via prompts, automatically populating that information on the form when it opens, automatically populating information on a form when another field changes, and more.
