Using DataAssist you can insert a single record or multiple records. A single DataAssist insert server behavior will only insert data into a single table, however you can have as many of these on a page as you need to do all of your inserting.

For example, if on a single page you would like to insert into the multiple tables using the id from the first table to record as the foreign key on the other tables you would do so like this:

create the page and form to gather the info from the user. If you use the wizard you will need to specify the first table and the page that is created will only contain form elements for that table. Next you would update this page by adding in the additional form elements that you would need to record the information you want to insert into the other tables.

Once the form elements are in place you will need to add in the additional DataAssist Insert server behaviors. You will need one of these for each table you wish to insert into. You can also use the insert multiple for a table where you need to insert multiple records.

By default the form elements will be text inputs, you can update these to be checkboxes though. It will always use the text inputs as the default input type.
