Step 3: Create properties

It's a good practice to think through and then create the properties you'll need to use when you design the messages that will be associated with this form. The fact set gives us a fairly good idea about what kinds of information we'll need, and it's up to the designer to use the type of property that makes the most sense for the information context. In this case, we'll create drop-down lists that provide clearly-defined choices to the message sender.

Be aware that although we'll use the Properties tab to create properties for this form, this can also be done directly from a form's Layout page once you're comfortable with the basic process.

Once you have finished, the Properties tab will be populated with all of the new properties.
