Note - uses GEDCOM 5.5. as its native file format.
These are the values accessible through the "Sources pane", seen at the side of the form for the value of an assertion. At the top of the "source pane" is a list of the source records that justify the value of this assertion. Select one of those, and you can input the following values for this assertion / source record combination.
(1) Entry Date
(2) Assessment (drop down list set to Unreliable, Questionable, Secondary, Primary. Actual values on file set to 1, 2, 3 or 4)
(3) Where within (e.g. page or whatever is helpful)
(4) Text from
(5) Note

Also, it is possible to set:
(6) Event type responsible & Role in Event
(7) Multimedia Object (a link)
But these items are not easily visible.
