The Entity form allows you to create entity data which is then stored in the context of your process. This data can then be used in subsequent steps of the process.
A general use case for the Entity input form is to use the form to create entity data, store the output from the form in the process context, and then load the data as input for a Create entity step.
This will in effect allow you to create a process which appears as a form where you can input meta data for an entity, like Title, Project ID (for projects) and Description, and which then creates a business module entity using the data you put in.
This process might look something like the following:
The following image shows an empty Entity input form in the Process Builder:
|Title||String||Use this field to give the step a friendly title.

||Use this field to select a business module.
||Use this field to select which type of content type this step creates.
