By: Shannon Corgan, Director of Marketing
1. CAN I SEE MY MOBILE FORMS IN REAL TIME?
You need real-time access to know what's going on in your business right now. Global visibility from a single database provides anytime access from any device with muti-user viewing of the same form. With WorkMax FORMS, no need to wait to get back to the office to view any of your forms or go into the dreaded dungeon full of file cabinets to find the form you need. It's right at your fingertips.
2. CAN I ADD PHOTOS, SKETCHES OR VIDEOS TO MOBILE FORMS?
This is one of the most common mobile forms questions we get. The answer is yes. You want to be able to embed as much media as you need for documentation. More importantly, you want everything all in one place and organized all in one form. This protects your business with accurate documentation with media like electronic signatures, audio, videos, photos, and sketches that you can find quickly. With WorkMax FORMS, no need to save your forms or reports in one file and media files separately. Here's another reason to add media to your forms. You can harness the power of your whole team to collaborate to solve problems faster in the field by using the video, photos, and sketches. This makes your customers pretty darned happy and gets your employees moving on to the next task at hand as quickly as possible.
3. ARE THE FORMS DYNAMIC WITH CONDITIONAL LOGIC?
Companies looking to collect more accurate data typically ask this mobile forms question. Dynamic forms allow you to add as much information as you need. They adjust to the length you need based on the amount of information you can add. Make sure the mobile forms are flexible enough to also properly format the printed forms to any length based regardless of the amount of data you've entered. Find a mobile forms solution like WorkMax FORMS that doesn't limit the amount of data, so that you can get all the information you need all in one form. The if-then, then-that conditional logic saves time and presents only the relevant questions based on how questions are answered. Employees complete the forms faster and everyone gets all the right information they need as quickly as possible.
4. CAN FORMS BE EMAILED FROM MOBILE DEVICES?
For timely and accurate documentation, make sure you have a mobile form solution that creates pdfs to mail to anyone. The pdf format of the mobile forms keeps it easy to read and organized. It also makes it look pretty slick if you need to print the form. WorkMax FORMS saves you time and expedites mobile forms delivery by setting up forms to automatically be emailed to specific people.
5. CAN I CREATE A FORM WITHIN A FORM?
Another common mobile forms question is how can we require a follow-up form to collect all the data we need. Many forms require you to complete follow- up forms. Select a mobile form solution that can automatically trigger follow up forms based on responses to eliminate critical data delays. Nested mobile forms save you time because you won't need to send multiple forms. Get all the information you need the first time and right away. No need to stock paper forms and run back to the office when you need a follow-up form. Find a mobile forms solution where everything is updated in real-time and automatically pushed to any device anywhere anytime. This ensures everyone is completing the most current form and you get all the information you need. Check out our video on nested forms.
