    Make A Field 'Silently Active'

    Using make silently active option, it is possible to hide a tab or a field without actually deleting it.

    When this option is enabled, the respective tab or field and also the values in the tab or field will actually be used while creating the user but will not be displayed during the user creation process. All the attributes made silently active will be added in the Active Directory for the corresponding user(s) but will not be displayed during the creation process.

    This option is useful in cases where the administrator would like assign values to attributes or fields but would not like the technician creating the user to know the values.

    You can make a field silently active by clicking on the '-' symbol which is displayed beside the delete option, when the mouse is positioned over or near the tab name or by clicking on the 'make silently active' option displayed when you point the mouse over the edit icon of any field / attribute.

    Field Tray

    When the 'Drag-n-Drop' option is enabled, you can see two components or panes. The pane on the left has all the default tabs and all their corresponding fields. This pane is called the 'Field Tray'. The fields can be dragged and dropped to the required tabs in the template or unwanted fields can be moved back to the field tray from the template.

    Field Group

    A field group contains a group of related fields / attributes placed under one common head. You can group the fields in the individual tabs in the template into one or more field groups as required.

    A new field group can be added using the 'Add Group' option that is placed inside the tab on the top right corner. Similar to the tab, a field group or any field that is placed in a field group can be made 'silently active'.
