This article will show you how to build a form
Why build a form?
The foundation of your Capptions Direct experience is in the Form. Forms will determine your user's daily workflow and the content of your reports and define how the data that your users are collecting is presented. Capptions Direct provides you with the tools to build your own custom forms to capture all the data you need.
Before we get started
- You can only build a form if you have the role responsibility of being an "owner" or "admin" of the organization you are building a form for or on your own account called the Personal Sandbox.
- You can only build a form via the web portal.
Build a form
Step 1: Sign in to the Capptions Direct web portal
Sign in to your Capptions Direct account using the link
Step 2: Select an organization
Click on the drop-down arrow in the top right-hand corner and select the organization you would like to create a form for.
Step 3: Click on Templates
Step 4: Click Create Form
Step 5: Enter form name
The Form name should be a title your team can use to identify as a form they would need to complete during an inspection
Step 6: Click Submit
Step 7: Add form section
To streamline the experience of conducting an inspection, you may need to structure your questions into different sections.
Step 8: Provide the section with a name
The sections can be organized according to different sets of questions or different areas of inspection. The name of each section can be changed.
Step 9: Add New Field
Every new field added represents a question that would be answered during an inspection. Questions can only be built within sections.
Step 10: Select a field type
Depending on the type of information you may want to retrieve from an inspection, select the appropriate field type to present the question.
Step 11: Insert a question
Step 12: Continue to build the form until completion
12.1: Follow steps 9-11 to add more questions to the form section
You can add as many fields as you might need in a section. Continue to build questions in a form until you're complete
12.2: Follow steps 7-11 to add new sections to the form
You can add as many form sections in a single form. This also means that you can merge two or more forms into a single form.
Step 13: Preview the form
Always preview how the form will look and proceed to fill in the form to confirm that you have built it in the desired manner for the inspection it is intended for.
Step 14: Click Publish to confirm form is ready to be used
And that's how easy it is!
