Application list fields
Application list fields display a list of entry points. BMC Remedy AR System server automatically generates the contents of the list, which contains the available applications, forms, and entry point guides on the current server.
Any form that contains an application list field can be used as a home page (see the following figure). A form can have only one application list field.

Displaying a subset of a server's applications and entry points
To display only a subset of a server's applications and entry points in an application list field, you can create sophisticated workflow by using the reserved character field ID 1576 that lets users see only a subset of entry points. Use a Run Process command (
PERFORM-ACTION-HOME-FIELD-REFRESH) to display dynamically a subset of servers and applications.
