Simple Data Collection Form

Creating a Record

Particularly, when collecting data, each ‘scan record’ is created by one of the following app actions:

  • Scanning a Barcode
  • Swiping a magnetic stripe (contact
  • Tapping an RFID/NFC tag
  • Manually entering an ID (or text)
  • Looking up an ID (requires uploading a database to with ID, names, locations, etc.)

Collecting Data

Then, you can collect data associated to each scan record. Additionally, when setting up your Service workflow, you can create Questions to present to your authorized app-users, including:

  • Form fields
  • Multiple choice (single answer or multi-answer)
  • Dropdown menu
  • Secondary barcode scans
  • Photo capture
  • Signature Capture
  • Custom Questions – HTML (offline)
  • Custom Questions – URL (online)

Formal and Verifiable Records

Importantly, each scan record is a formal and verifiable record as the app also automatically captures:

  • Date/Timestamp
  • GPS location (optional)
  • App-User ID
  • Service ID
  • Device ID


Also, you will be able to view, filter, and share your scan records directly on the ‘Scans‘ page of our website. Notably, you can get more detailed reporting as well. For instance, you can manually export scans for importing to your database program (Excel, Google Sheets, etc.); In addition, you can post scans to your own servers. Also, you can auto-insert scans into third party servers, including Google Sheets.
