With this question type you can capture date and time as needed. This means that the answer does not necessarily have to be related with the date and time when the form is being answered. For example, you can ask for the date and time when an incident occurred or when the next inspection of a machinery will be done. 

The answer to this question will be a chosen date and time, since all DataScope forms record automatically the date and time where the report was completed. 

Here's a demo of how to set up this question:

  • To add the question to your form and define its function:

1. Click the "+" button (blue color) or Add New Question in the lower-left corner.

2.In the new question, define:

  • Title: Define the question title. This field appears in the exported document.

  • Description: you can enter a description or explanation related to the question. This field appears only in the app, and does not appear in the exported document.

3. Click on the "Date Type" box and configure the data you want to collect: only the date, only the time or both.

4. At the end of the question you will find the alternative: Required.

  • Required: you can define whether the question must be answered before proceeding to answer the form.

5. To save the question, click the "Save" button.

Here is an overview of how this type of question is presented on the app:


All set !!
