After creating a Data Entry Form and landing upon the form designer page, you'll be able to add various field types that will allow mobile app users to capture required data. Our platform offers a range of Basic and Advanced field types that can be added into a form's design by simply clicking or using the drag and drop functionality to place fields as desired.
Most field types can be dynamically or statically configured to capture and/or display data based on the following common and unique property categories:
Group fields together in one screen, with optional repeat capture.
Read-only display of text sections, field separators and/or reference images.
Display and capture single and multi-line text data.
Display and capture number values.
Display and capture dates, times or both.
