Stopwatch

You can add stopwatch from the left panel to the digital mobile screen in the middle by dragging it.

Add a stopwatch to your form to track the time taken for a particular activity while filling out the form.

Properties of a Stopwatch

1. Allow Pausing

‘Allow Pausing’ property of the Stopwatch, as the name suggests, allows having a stopwatch in the form, which can be paused.

If you set the ‘Allow Pausing’ property to ‘Yes,’ then you can pause and resume the stopwatch while filling the form.

If it is set to ‘No,’ then you cannot pause the stopwatch once it has been started.

Although, a new stopwatch can always be started again after stopping the previous one - even if the property is set to ‘No.’

For example, you can create a stopwatch before starting a new section of the form every time for different processes like inspection, audit, etc.

2. Label

You can change the name of the ‘Stopwatch’ using a label.

It is ‘Stopwatch’ by default.

On the right panel, go to the label section and you can type the required text that you want. The same name will appear on the form.

3. Required

You can use this property to make that ‘Stopwatch’ mandatory to be filled.

Some fields in your form might be mandatory, while some might not be.

For example, ‘Stopwatch’ field can be set to ‘Yes’ in the required property when you want to make the field mandatory.

So, while filling out a form, the user will have to compulsorily start the stopwatch while filling the mobile form, without which the form wouldn’t be submitted.


4. Unique Identifier

Every field will have a unique identifier. No two unique identifiers for fields will be the same.

Please note that ‘Unique Identifier’ property is just for reference purpose only. The user need not have to do anything to this property, it can be referred when there are fields created with the same names.

When you create two fields with the same names, it might get confusing when you are setting a condition and you wouldn’t know which field is which.

For example,

If you have created a field ‘address’ - and set a visibility condition to it saying the ‘address’ field will be only visible if you have entered the ‘Phone number.’

But if there are two fields that say ‘Phone Number’ - it will be difficult to set a visibility condition since both the fields have the same name.

Both of these fields ‘Phone Number’ will have different unique identifiers. You can check the unique identifier and then set the condition accordingly.

5. Visibility Conditions

Visibility Condition in the property for the ‘Stopwatch’ is used to specify a condition.

If you apply any visibility condition, it implies that the ‘Stopwatch’ field will only be visible if it satisfies the condition that you have set.

Visibility condition can be set by specifying the condition - you can do that by clicking ‘condition not specified.’

For example,

You might create a Field ‘Stopwatch for Inspection’ which will be only visible if the user chooses ‘Yes’ option in the previous choice list ‘Are you beginning inspection now?’

Visibility conditions can help you control the type of input during the filling of a form by the user.

6. Validity Conditions

Validity Condition in the property for the ‘Stopwatch’ is used to specify a condition.

If you set any validity condition, it implies that the ‘Stopwatch’ will only be valid if it satisfies the condition that you have set.

It can be set by specifying the condition - you can do that by clicking ‘condition not specified.’

For example,

You might create a field ‘Audit Process Stopwatch’ which will be only valid if the user enters ‘Yes’ in the earlier field ‘Are you starting the audit now?’

Otherwise, it would be invalid and show an error message.

Validations can help you control the type of input during the filling of a form by the user.

You can also customize an error message that you want to display by typing the message in ‘Validity Error Message.’

This message will be displayed when the validity condition does not match with the given input.
