Number fields are used frequently and extensively in the GoCanvas App Builder. They can do everything from allowing users to collect basic numerical data to contributing to the calculation of a pass/fail score.
Field Settings for number fields
There are two styles of number fields that you can select: Number and Currency.
Number will allow you to specify the number of decimals you want to collect, whereas currency will only allow two places. Currency will also add a label, such as a dollar sign, to the field in the App. The specific currency sign will vary depending on your individual device settings (this is generally location-based; if you need your App to collect data in a different currency, try changing the location settings on your mobile device).
Both styles of number fields will allow you to set a numeric minimum and maximum, which will require users to input a value either above a certain amount or below. These can be used simultaneously to ensure that value is within a certain range.
More number field settings
If you’ve selected the Number style, this is where you’ll set the number of decimal points available in that field. Your options are no limit, or from 0-6. By default, it will be set to 0.
Using number fields
Number fields will allow you to type in letters, but users will get a warning in their App when trying to move to another screen.
Number fields can be used in both calculation and summary fields. Learn more about the power of these fields.
