Wondering if there is a way to add Help info or safety notes to a Field Measurement? Sometimes extra notes have been added to the paper form and you need it format it digitally.
Forms tend to include a lot of additional information, usually for safety purposes or general info about the task currently being performed. There are now a couple of different ways to add more info to a field measure.
Help text is information hidden behind an‘info’icon. You can click the icon to show or hide the info about the field measure.
Pre text is displayed on the field measure and you can choose whether you’d like to display it above or below the measure name
Post text is similar to Pre text. It is also displayed on the field measure but it will display it below the measure data input field.
In Obzervr Manager, Labelling Options for a Field Measurement allows you to add notes and safety instructions so that it appears on the Capture app.
The Labelling option is a collapsible menu divided into four parts:
