Using the Quick Add Feature to Reduce Clicks

Repeat Groups are used when the set of questions within the Group need to be answered multiple times. Our Quick Add features allows the user to create additional Repeat Group entries without needing to return to the main form.

  1. Select "+ Add item" on the Repeat Group question to begin adding your first entry

  2. Fill out the required information

  3. Select the blue "+" button in the upper right to add a second entry

  4. Repeat until all the necessary entries have been added

  5. Select the back button on the upper left to return to the main form

Once multiple entries have been added, you will see a dark grey bar at the bottom of your entry screen. This bar shows which entry number you are viewing, and the total number of entries added.

You can scroll through your entries by clicking the arrows at the bottom of the screen, or just by swiping left and right.

Add New Items at Current Location in Repeat Group

Enable the "Add new items at current location" in the App Settings to enter additional items in between items in your current Repeat Group list.

Select the location where you want to add the new entry, and click the + symbol.

Your new entry will be placed below the previous item you selected.

For example, in the video below, a list of items is entered:

  • Aaa

  • Bbb

  • Ddd

  • Eee

"Ccc: is missing from the list.

We enter the missing "Ccc" after the "Bbb" item, by select "Bbb" and then the + symbol.

If this setting is switched OFF, all new Repeat Group Items will be added to the bottom of the list.

Adding Repeat Group Entries in Bulk

If you perform a long press on the Add Item button, you can add up to 200 repeat group items at once. This is useful for cases where you know in advance how many items you are going to need and want to add them all up front.

Checking the Status of Repeat Group Entries

When viewing Repeat Group entries from outside the group, you can easily tell which entries are complete and which are missing data by looking at the status circle. A blue incomplete circle means there are some unanswered questions within the entry. A green circle with a check signifies that all the fields within the entry have been filled out.

Searching Repeat Group Entries

It can be hard to find the information you're looking for in a list of Repeat Group entries, especially if there are a large number of entries added. Use the search bar feature to search for values in the Repeat Group Summary.

For example, to see which entries include a response of "No", type "No" into the search bar. Your list of entries will filter down to show only the entries that include the word "No" in the summary.

You can also use the search bar to locate a specific barcode collected (or value) within the repeat group. Tap the barcode icon inside the search bar to open the scanner, and then scan the barcode. You will be brought to the matching Repeat Group entry.
