Forms must be created and customized in order to build a project. Individual forms can be created based on the requirements of the project.

Widgets

Field users can enter data and interact with the program using form widgets.

You can use any of these widgets to design a field survey form based on data collection requirements. The software also enables you to design conditional forms.

Field staff will be assigned forms that will enable them to collect data.

Every widget consists of two default parameters: Label and Question code. Each parameter will have a label displayed in the mobile application. The question code will be displayed in the table where the Admin or Analyst will approve, reject, or send the data for resurvey. This same question code will appear in the downloaded excel file.

Note:
  • Question code must have minimum of three alphabets.
  • Space and special characters such as !, @, #, $,%, &, *, (,), -, +, are not accepted in the question code. It only allows the character "_" (underscore).
  • Label name must not conflict with the labels of other widgets.
  • The same label name and question code can also be used.

Furthermore, all individual widgets include the following checkboxes, which are not required but can be selected based on the form questionnaire.

  1. Required field - If this checkbox is selected, field users must collect information from the field.
  2. Add Image - If this checkbox is selected, Admin will be required to upload the picture while adding the widget to the form. Field users will see a label and an image for the relevant widget on the data collection interface.
  3. Display on map as Label - If this checkbox is selected, Admin, Analyst, and field users will be able to see the label on the map screen.
  4. Default to Last Collected - If this checkbox is selected, field users will not have to enter the information every time until they intend to modify it.
  5. Auto-Increment - This only applies to Number widgets that do not require incremental numbers to be entered. As data collection progresses, the application will keep increasing the numbers.
  6. Title Case - If this checkbox is selected, the first letter of each word will be in upper case, regardless of whether the data is collected in all uppercase or all lowercase.
  7. All Caps - If this checkbox is selected, user responses will be saved in all uppercase.

To create a field survey form, you can use any of the widgets listed below. You can also drag and drop widgets based on the form structure.

The 'Autofill' checkbox must be selected to fetch the form automatically.

  21. Static Text - Enables the field user to store text as Static in the form and in data collection table such as City Name, Ward Name, Surveyor Name etc.
  22. Feature Detection - Enables the field user to find and locate various objects in the area of interest.

    Admin can use this AI-based widget to upload their own trained model or use a pre-uploaded model. Admin must specify the width and height of the image used to train the model after uploading their own trained model. An admin can choose objects such as a fire hydrant, automobile, motorcycle, bus, or traffic light when using a pre-uploaded model, and there are various options to select from the object picker which field user needs to identify from the field.

    Attention: It is recommended to upload the list of objects to detect in CSV or TXT format, together with the trained model in TFLite format.
