Epicollect5 provides an intuitive and easy to use drag & drop form builder. Currently we allow a maximum of 300 questions per a single form, and a maximum number of 5 linked (hierarchy) forms.
It requires a mouse or trackpad so touch device like iPads or Android tablets are not supported yet. We therefore recommend to build your form(s) on a desktop or laptop.
A minimum screen width of 1024 px is also required to be able to show all the user interface controls.
The form builder features a three columns layout:
- Left column: the available inputs
- Middle colun : the inputs added to each form
- Right column: the currently selected input settings
By default, each input is shown on a single screen on the mobile app. This allows space for the popup keyboard and the question at the same time. You might want to have more then one question on a page, in that case just use a group.
Remember though, you cannot set jumps on inputs within a group, just on the group input. More on jumps.
