    2. Choose the required form that you want to open on click of the button.

    4. Select Same window under Open in.

  8. Repeat the above steps 3-6 for the other two buttons Food Complaint and Restroom Complaint.
  9. Close the Panel Configuration pane. The changes will be saved automatically.
