These input types can be used to populate the pages for your custom forms. Each input type has a slightly different display and functionality. These input types are listed beneath the 'Section' option on the menu when setting up your forms:
Input - This is a single-line text input field, you can fill with any numbers or characters you need to.
Dynamic input - Similar to the 'Input' type, Dynamic input fields will also be able to use pre-filled options if common responses are typical.
Numbers - Whole numbers (no decimal points) greater than '0' can be used to fill these fields.
Text area - Is similar to 'Input' but you are able to enter multiple lines of text (and numbers) rather than just a single line.
Date & Time - are fairly straightforward fields used to display the date and time.
Toggle - This is primarily utilised on mobile devices to set up things lie "yes or no" responses where the options are pre-defined and you can switch between the two by clicking.
Checkbox - A multiple line checkbox which could accommodate thing like multiple-choice responses.
Single checkbox - More akin to a confirmation of some kind ('click here to confirm') as opposed to the 'Checkbox' option that allows for multiple options to be displayed.
Radio - Similar again to the 'single checkbox' option and used to display multiple options where only one can be selected.
Dropdown - This option allows you to create multiple options available for selection displayed in the typical dropdown fashion.
Input with selection choices - This is essentially a free-text box with your preset options also displayed as a list below, this means the user has the ability to type an option in themselves, or simply select it from the list displayed.
Plain text - A free text field that engineers can use to make any additional notes or comments.
Decimal - A number field (similar to 'number') that also allows you to include decimals, it is not restricted to whole numbers.
Signature - A field that simply allows for a regular signature to be added.
Photo - A simple field that allows you to include any necessary photos or images.
Non-editable input - A single-line text fields (similar to Input) where the pre-defined content cannot be edited.
Preset input types - These have simply taken into account the frequency with which 'Yes/No/NA' are listed as options on forms in general, allowing you to select them as input types without needing to manually create them.
- Before actually adding a page to your form, you will need to select a page type from 'Standard', 'List', 'Engineer signature', and 'Customer signature'.
- If you choose 'List', you can input the maximum number of list items you want to be added to the page (leaving this field blank, will remove any maximum limitations).
- You will not be able to change the default names of the Engineer or Customer signature pages, the 'Page name' box will be greyed out.
