OFFLINE DATA COLLECTION WITH FORMOTUS ENTERPRISE-GRADE MOBILE FORMS
Robust offline data collection that works as well as online data collection.
Continuous productivity in the absence of a reliable data connection is critical to many of our customers. This capability is especially the case for customers with a workforce that’s often in rural areas, inside industrial facilities, down in tunnels, up in airplanes, or out at sea.
Open a new instance of a Formotus mobile form while offline to begin capturing data. You can open multiple new instances of any form on your device.
Store the drafts of all your offline forms locally on the device until you are ready to submit them online.
Open a saved draft of a partially filled Formotus mobile form and complete it. Switch among several saved drafts of offline forms.
Use Formotus mobile forms with simple or complex calculations built right in. Since there are no server-side actions required, all the business logic works offline.
Use multi-screen Formotus mobile forms to move from one screen to another, the same way you navigate a website.
SHOW OR HIDE
Show or hide new questions based on the answers to previous questions. Show or skip whole sections or screens based on field values and rules.
We've built an offline data source right into your Formotus mobile form so you can query in offline forms. This feature is one of the most popular of our offline data collection features. It is easy to set up and update. We will show you how.
Color sections in an offline form based on the data entered into a field. Set a field’s value to be the result of a calculation from a measurement of distance, time, temperature, etc. Hide, show, set, calculate, or format functions based on multiple logic conditions. Create business logic as complex as you need without coding.
Verify that required fields have been completed in the required format. For example, Formotus mobile offline forms show the mobile user an error message if they enter letters where they should enter numbers.
Submit your Formotus mobile form while offline. When offline, submitted forms are saved in the outbox and will sync when your device reconnects to the network.
