Re: New Member

Welcome to The Cove! :big wave:

In my view, a form is a document used to record something. A record is the completed form.

A form might not need a strict approach to document copntrol, but the completed record should be protected against loss or tampering to the extent the data on it protects the oorganization from some kind of risk.

For example, a form might be used to record the safety training an employee receives. Once the form is filled out, it becomes a record. Keeping the record safe helps make sure there is evidence the employee was taught how to work safely.

Re: Form or record

Welcome from me as well
A form is a work instruction!
Each field has a question before it which tells you what to do
E.g name= Please write your name

A completed form as Jennifer Kirley said once the form is completed it is a RECORD

Hi Sabbara,

Welcome to Cove.

Jennifer did a great job explaining the difference between form and record. I wanted to give another example. You can consider your bank check book as forms. You keep your check book in your purse. Once you write a check...lets say to electric company, that particular check will become your record. You want to keep it for certain period of time to prove that your account is up to date.

Re: What is the Difference between a Form and a Record

1st of all: welcome

In my opinion: a form is something you need to fill out whether it is a hard copy or a digital screen. Once that is done it becomes a record. Records are registrations that you want to keep for a certain lenght of time e.g. a form, personell file, diploma's, certificates, data etc.. (in any appearance: digital, hard copy)

Greetz, Wouter

Hello Sabbara,

A simple thing to remember the difference:
  • A form and/or document says: "DO"
  • A record says: "DONE"
Hope this helps.

Stijloor.
