How to: Promote a Field to the FastTab Header By Using Transformation Input
In the RoleTailored client, you can expand and collapse FastTabs. If you collapse a FastTab, some information from the FastTab will be displayed in summary form on the collapsed tab. To specify which fields are displayed when the FastTab is collapsed, you must set the PromotedField property.
To specify which fields are displayed when the FastTab is collapsed, you can either use Page Designer or you can set the PromotedField property in the input to form transformation. This topic describes how to set the PromotedField property on a field during form transformation.
The following illustration shows the Move Page Elements window, which is part of the Transformation Input Files (TIF) Editor, with several controls on form 21, Customer Card specified as promoted.
Before you begin this procedure, you must do the following:
Install the Transformation Input File (TIF) Editor. For detailed steps, see.
Add your forms to the TIF Editor, either by importing the transformation input files for the standard application forms, or by using the Get Forms command. For more information, see the following topics:

Close the Move Page Elements window to save your changes.
