Default "Event allows designations on fees" checkbox to yes in Events

 When in design mode in the Events functional area, you're unable to default the "Event allows designations on fees" checkbox to being checked because access to Properties on the Add and Event button is unavailable.
This can be accomplished by:

Create a new functional area and add an Add an Event task to that area. Here you can default the "Event allows designations on fees" checkbox to yes.

Add a Functional Area:

1.   Click Administration.
2.   Click Application under Administration.
3.   Click Shell Design.
4.   Click the Functional Areas tab.
5.   Click Add.
6.   In the Add a functional area window, enter a Name of your choosing as well as a Description.
7.   Click Save.

Add a Page:

1.   From the same Shell Design page, click the Pages tab.
2.   Click Add.
3.   In the Add a page window, give the page a Name, Description, and Caption of your choosing.
4.   Click Save.

Add a Task:

1.   From the same Shell Design page, click the Tasks tab.
2.   Click Add.
3.   In the add a task window, give the task a Name of your choosing (name suggestion: Add an Event) as well as a Description of your choosing.
4.   In the FuncationalArean drop-down box, choose the functional area you created above.
5.   Give a name to the TaskGroup.
6.   In the ActionType drop-down box, choose ShowAddDataForm.
7.   In the DataForm field, click the magnifying glass. Search for and select the Event Add Form.
8.   In the DefaultVaules field, click the ellipsis button (...).
9.   Click Add.
10. In the FieldID drop-down, choose DESIGNATIONONFEES.
11. Change the ContextType to Expression. An Expression field populates.
12. In the Expression field, type "true".
13. Click OK on the Form field default value window.
14. Click OK on the DefaultValues window.
15. Click Save on the Add a task window. 
 

Steps to Duplicate

1.   Navigate to the Events functional area.
2.   Click Toggle Design mode on button.
3.   Click Add new and then right-click Event. This should populate a CRM menu that allows you to view and edit the properties of the task. Instead a normal browser menu populates.
