The Element form of the Content Pane displays information about the element selected in the Outlook Bar. An element is associated with a node, and is the column heading in a node in Collector. If a base node was selected in the Node form, then the base node’s elements are inherited by the current node; these elements can only be edited in the base node. You can also add elements that are unique to the node.
