What are Mobile Forms in DataMyte

Mobile forms are a digital version of a paper form or document using DataMyte Digital Clipboard Workflow Builder. Fields or records contained on your paper form can be included in the DataMyte Digital Clipboard digital workflow, which then can be accessed by Revolution device or web to collect data. Additionally, you can design a digital workflow that can capture text input (like paper forms do), and collect images, and audio/video, etc. DataMyte Digital Clipboard Workflow data can be submitted and stored in the cloud. The data is available to be shared or viewed in real-time.

Validations can be performed using different conditions. Validation of one input can depend on the values of other inputs from either the same workflow or on the values of forms filled by previous users.

Visibility Conditions

A widget can be made visible or invisible depending on the value of other input values from either the same workflow or on the values of forms filled by previous users.

Sub Workflows

Sub Workflows allow Workflow Builder to make a lengthy and complex workflow shorter by combining related inputs in a separate workflow. This makes it easy to navigate to different widgets within such a workflow.

Power Features Used in the Workflow Builder

By using Parent-Child Relationships and Reference Relationships, the capabilities of the Workflow Builder are enhanced and data from one workflow can be used in another workflow.

Parent-Child Relationships

Some objects have parent-child relationships with each other. These objects are represented as forms in the Workflow Builder and their relationship is modeled using parent-child relationships. This type of relationship can be understood better using the example of an Airport and its constituent runways. An airport is a parent workflow while a runway is a child workflow. So, an Airport can contain zero or more runways. During the submission of a workflow, you can enforce the allowed number of children using the validation feature inside forms. 

Reference Relationships

One object can be associated with or referenced through another object. An invoice, for example, can refer to a customer to whom the invoice is addressed.
