Static Reports and Forms - Advanced Customization

The Static Reports and Forms Reporting feature allows you to create forms that your end users can fill out and submit from the CrisisManager mobile app for a specific event. For information on how to use templates to quickly get up and running with a standard form, see the Static Reports and Forms page. Use the tools below to either create your own form from scratch, or customize a template.

Adding Checkboxes

  • Click on the checkbox icon () and a Checkbox Properties window will appear.
  • Enter a Name for the checkbox. This is not the text that will appear next to the checkbox, but is a way of grouping multiple checkboxes together. The Name needs to be the same for all checkboxes within a checklist. *Note: There should be no spaces between characters in the Name.
  • Enter a Value for the checkbox. The Value is identifying what this individual checkbox correlates to. *Note: There should be no spaces between characters in the Value.

  • Click OK.

 

Adding Radio Buttons

  • Click on the radio button icon () and a Radio Button Properties window will appear.
  • Enter a Name for the radio button. This is not the text that will appear next to the radio button, but is a way of grouping multiple radio buttons together. The Name needs to be the same for all radio buttons within a grouped list. *Note: There should be no spaces between characters in the Name.
  • Enter a Value for the radio button. The Value is identifying what this individual radio button correlates to. *Note: There should be no spaces between characters in the Value.
  • Click OK.

 

Adding Text Fields

  • Click on the text field icon () and a Text Field Properties window will appear.

For example, if Email is selected, the user must type their response as name@domain.com.
  • Click OK.

 

Adding Textareas

  • Click on the textarea icon () and a Textarea Properties window will appear.
