About

Forms are made up of pages and questions.  When adding questions, choose the right Data and Control Types to improve the usability of a form, and to control the data that will be collected. 

  • Data type determines the sort of data a question will be collecting.  For example, if the question expects text, an image, or GPS coordinates from the user. 

  • Control type describes the method in which data is collected.  For example, if the question will provide a dropdown menu with a list of answers for the user to choose from, or if a form will automatically collect data when the form is opened with a stamp.

Note:  To use the latest control types, always ensure your device has the latest version of the ProntoForms from the app store.
