Let’s say you want to show certain field if the FormType is Create or Update, unfortunately the first thing that will come to mind is that this cannot be achieved using Business Rules.
Every entity has record creation date i.e. createdon. If this field does not contain any data then that means the record has not yet been created thus the Create Form is active. This is how the Business Rule for Create form will look like
Business Rule for Create and Update Form
Similar to what we did for the Create Form, we need to check if the createdon contains data then perform the action, this would essentially mean that it is an Update Form. You can combine the two (Create and Update) into a single business rule like the way I have done it (see screenshot above).
It is absolutely essential that the field we choose to check for FormType (Created on in our case) should be present on the form. You can set field visibility to false and lock it.
