Bridging can now be used to perform Set Fields - External events to fill in questions on your service item.

Much of the dialog is the same as the original (pre-bridging) dialog.
Model refers to the model listed on the Structures tab of the Bridge Manager
Qualification drop-down gives you the list of pre-configured qualifications based on the model selected. For example, if you select Customer as the model, you will have qualifications like search by ID, or search by last name.
