The data binding tool is a powerful option in BadgeMaker Identity. When you add a new layout or update a layout you will be prompted to create the data bindings. Dynamic fields used and created in your layout may differ from the naming or sp
elling of a name that exists in your Project database. Therefore you will be allowed to create the data bindings. The dynamic fields that are created in the layout are presented to the left and you can bind these dynamic fields to the database fields. The tool will create the bindings for you that are obvious: if they are the same or as they were bonded at the previous update; of course you will be able to modify the bindings and confirm these settings. The new or modified layout will be available in the dashboard of BadgeMaker Identity
