Two New Forms Feature Improvements: Video Capture and Radio Button

We are excited to announce that we have been working on some improvements to the forms features given feedback from our existing customers. These enhancements include the ability to now record a 30-second Video inside the form and being able to see Radio Buttons for answers based on Yes/No questions.

Radio Buttons

Given more and more of our customers are using our solution for Covid-19 Self-Assessment Surveys, the radio buttons from the custom fields is a new “customer favorite” as this feature allows field workers to answer Yes/No questions quickly and in a more convenient way.


Here’s an example view from the Wellness Form: 


The first step to enable this feature is to go to the Basic section in the Administration tab and selecting "Preferences". Find the option called "Render Yes/No field as radio buttons" and tick the checkbox as follows:

Scroll to the bottom and click on "Save" to apply the changes. Next, in the same "Basic" section, go to "Manage Custom Fields/Forms". Here make sure to select the Field Type "Yes/No" when creating the new Custom Field and click on Add. The process here is the same as always, to learn more about it, we have an article dedicated to working with Forms:



30 Seconds Video

This feature gives the field user the capability to take a 30-second video inside a form to document customer visits or important things happening on the field.



To create a Video Custom Field, the steps are the exact same as described in the previous point, that is, going to the "Manage Custom Fields/Forms" section and adding a new field in a form. In this case, make sure to select the Field Type called "Video" and click on "Add" once you are ready:


That's it for now! We hope you take advantage of these incredible new features, be on the lookout for new things that will be coming up.
