You've launched your form and now it's time to create your first submission. Grab your mobile device and let's go!
GoCanvas on Mobile
In case you skipped a few parts of Step 1, you'll want to make sure you've downloaded the GoCanvas application on your mobile device and are logged in. Once you are, here's what you'll see:
Filling out your Form
For the most part, GoCanvas is going to tell you what it wants from you, so you can follow these easy steps:
- Click on the name of the form you want to use to get started.
- In most instances, you’ll fill in fields as they appear and use the next and back buttons to navigate between pages.
- When you get to the end of a form, you’ll be asked to complete the submission. This is where you’ll set who’s going to receive the submission via email, be able to review the entire submission on one screen, and choose if you want to email yourself a copy, sync after tapping Submit, and show PDF after sync. Note: If there is a short text field with the style of email included in your form, that email address will receive a copy of the email with the submission as well.
- Once the application has synced with the GoCanvas servers (either manually or automatically based on your selection on the completion screen), your submission will be complete!
Saving your work
At any point along the way, you can (and should, especially if it's going to take a while to complete the submission) save your progress. Learn about how to save a submission on mobile and resume that saved submission.
You need to sync your device in order to receive any updates, including the form you've been assigned. Once you've done that, you should see the form you just created (assuming you've assigned it to yourself).
You can sync on Android or iOS by dragging the home screen downwards.
On Windows, click the Sync button in the top of the screen.
Going forward, you'll need to sync your device in order to complete any submissions that haven't already been uploaded to the cloud.
