In Form Report Forms MUST also be set as Mobile Enabled

If you have an Event Form set up for Mobile Access and in that form these is a field to pull through data using an "In Form Report", the Form that is being pulled through must also be enabled for Mobile Access.

In Form Reports appear in Event Forms on the Mobile Applications. Only In Form Reports created from Event Forms that are Mobile Enabled will appear in the Event Form on the Mobile Applications

The example in the image here shows that two In Form Reports have been set up to appear in this Event Form.

-The First In Form Report is referencing an Event Form that has been set up as Mobile enabled. This means if there is data entered for it, it will appear on the Mobile App in a table format (as shown in the image in the step below).

-The second In Form Report is set to show fields from an Event Form that is not Mobile enabled, so this will not appear at all on the Mobile App; the In Form Report Field name (e.g. Report- Not Mobile enabled) will not even appear.

Each Inform Report will appear in a Table format on the Mobile App. This has the same functionality as regular tables in the Mobile version; tables appear in a new page on the Mobile App

The image in the step here shows an example of an In Form Report showing in an Event Form on the Mobile Application. The Table rows appear with the data and the athlete they are entered for.

Underneath the row headings, all of the fields selected to appear in the In Form report appear.

You can click on a Table row to open the actual record (just as you can in the main application)

For this example we will open the record for the 22nd February. You can see that the In Form Report Form must be mobile enabled or it couldn't be accessed via the Mobile App.

You can click to view the record, edit it and save changes if required.

Navigate through the form using the Previous and Next buttons.

Click Cancel to go back to the In Form Report at any time.

Alternatively, you can edit the form (the field Number Max is being changed from 5 to 7) and click on Save and Close, the changes will be saved and you will return to the In Form Report in the original Form that you were in.

You can see that once you click on Save and Close, or Cancel, you are taken back to the In Form Report

The field that was updated when we were viewing the actual record from the In Form Report has been updated.

At the bottom of the In Form Report you can move to the next section and navigate through the rest of the Event Form.

Remember to change the order of fields to ensure the Inform Report appears at the start or the end of a section to ensure the least amount of page breaks

Each section in an Event Form can be set to appear as a separate page on the iPad and iPhone app, but an Inform Report will always appear in a separate page break. Optimise where your Inform Reports are by moving them around in the Event Form.

-The example in the image in the step here shows that this inform chart will appear on a separate page after only 1 field. To optimise the layout, we will shift the inform report up.

Always test your changes and ensure they work well on the Mobile applications.

In Form Report Checklist

#1: Make sure your In Form Reports are set to appear just before or after a section to reduce the number of page breaks.

#2: Always test your Reports work correctly by entering in data for the Event Form that you are reporting on.

#3: Make sure you test that the Event Form fields that you are selecting to show in the table are being pulled from an event form that is set up as Enable Mobile Entry =True
