New Feature: Data Routing
Data routing is the act of extracting relevant information from a string of text and sending it to subsequent questions.
Complex data routing in a form provides you with some simple tools to process the data that flows into a ProntoForm, and use it to run the business logic in that form, thereby automating as much of the process in the field as possible.
Using Index router, you can parse sequential chunks of data such as from a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the appropriate parts of the form, and use that to drive business logic, such as firing off a different workflow based on the car make or model, all based off of the VIN.
Regex router, while more complex, is also more powerful: using Regular Expressions, you can reduce massive amounts of manual data entry by simply extracting what’s needed and sending it to the appropriate parts of the form, triggering conditional logic to provide additional context as well as increasing automation, saving the field tech large amounts of manual work.
All of this data can be sent to your data destinations as well, meaning you can automatically parse the data and put it into a human-readable format into any system of record.
