Yes, you do. The ones in the Fields element are little broken, using the proper ones is better. But if you absolutely must have the Fields element back, go to
/libraries/cegcore2/admin/extensions/chronofc/views/fields/fields.ini and set "disabled" to "0"

I followed the directions to go to fields.ini and set "disabled" to "0" But I see no change on the View tab even after I refresh the page.
You said "The ones in the fields element are little broken" What is broken about them?
I don't understand how this is supposed to work. For example...
If I use the fields individually how do I arrange the fields on the form (say have four fields horizontal instead of vertical)?
Will the submit button just automatically submit everything that is a field.
Frankly this doesn't seem like a good idea. Just saying.

A submit button will submit the form it is in, to the action url
So yes if you have a submit button with the fields in your form area it will "automatically" submit the fields
And they were a little broken in that several of the field properties didn't work properly

You didn't respond to my first issue: "I followed the directions to go to fields.ini and set "disabled" to "0" But I see no change on the View tab (no Form Fields option) even after I refresh the page." Please respond.
If setting "disabled" to "0" doesn't work, then I need to understand how to create a form with the new method. Here is what I understand so far:
For every field I want on the form I have to create a view. Then to have the field appear on the form I list each field view in the contents section of the form area. Is this correct so far?
Now suppose I want to have several fields in a row rather than stacked vertically. How would I do that?

It's recommended to use the new fields views, and call the code posted by healyhatman inside the form view code if you really need to have multiple fields per row in Connectivity!
