    Currently, there is no inheritance in place when adding a custom form with the new system.  If I set a form field to a top level category, sub categories within each need to also have this form dragged into them.

     

    By design, I don't think this makes any sense and makes the configuration process tedious, especially if there are plans for anyone to have a wide variety of sub categories within each category.

     

    I've attached a screenshot of the visual representation of this.  You can see I set Clients at the Top category level of IT.  Each sub category underneath IT also needs to have Clients dragged into it, otherwise Clients will not show up because the forms specific to each sub category simply overrides and replaces what should be inherited from the parent.

     

    Can we please have this considered for implementation, sooner than later?

    What problem will this feature solve?:
