Hi Mellisa - CU2 is now removed from MS downloads because CU3 has been released and replaces CU2.
Please see this announcement:
thank you! I missed all this from the weekend then
You mention one of the capabilities of the SM Authoring Tool as being able to customize the look and feel of forms. Is this true with the default Incident form? I am using SCSM 2012 and the authoring tools that go with it.
I basically want to be able to move existing fields (Classification category for example) into other sections of the form and also change the color of the header. Is this possible?
@Panicos - yes that is possible.
