A Form is a collection of fields that appear on Recommendation Alerts. Forms are how relevant information can be entered and changed over the course of resolving an Alert. Forms can also contain buttons that allow specific actions to be performed in other business systems, like creating a work order in your EAM system. The Action Request Agent in the Data Stream Designer will pass the data from your form to other systems.
