How to: Make Separate Compose and Read Versions for a Form
You can create and edit separate compose and read versions for each page of a form. The compose version is what the sender sees—for example, what you see when you create a message. The read version is what the recipient sees—for example, what you see when you read your e-mail.
|Outlook only supports separate compose and read versions on some item types (items that you can send, such as mail and post). Other item types always display the compose form.|
Forms customized with form regions
When using form regions to create separate compose and read versions for a form, you must design two separate form regions, one for each version, and register them independently on the same message class. Properties that you set in the XML manifest indicate which form is for the read-only view and which should be used for compose.

Forms customized with form pages
- In Forms Designer, on the Developer tab, in the Design group, do one of the following:
- To create or edit the compose page, click Edit Compose Page.
- To create or edit the read page, click Edit Read Page.
- Customize pages on the form.
For more information, see How to: Customize Pages on a Form.
|You can quickly switch between the two versions by clicking Edit Compose Page and Edit Read Page in the Design group. If these commands are not available, you have set the compose and read versions to be the same. To have separate compose and read versions, click Separate Read Layout in the Design group.|
