As we have seen, by default, all IndustraForm values are carried over to the next shift. However, there are times when you will want to adjust this behavior.

In our example, we would like the operator to fill out the Value for each of our KPIs at shift end. However, we would like to be able to see what the Value was from the previous shift.

In order to achieve this, we set Carry Over? to No for the Value input elements and add a new column for the Value (Prev Shift). The Number elements in that column are read only: the Source is set to Expr. / Const. We then set the Carry Over? option to Yes and use From Element to indicate which element from the previous shift provides the value.

The Test Form uses the configured Carry Over rules each time it is pressed, so your carry over logic can be tested with the test form.
