The Launchcloud Android app can be used to submit forms, as well as manage your account information, such as your profile picture and password. You only need one login to see all your Launchcloud Accounts, Folders and the Forms you have access to.
You log in using the email and the password that you signed up with when you were created your Launchcloud account.
After logging in you’ll land on the Android Dashboard, which provides an overview of your account activity such as the number of folders and forms in each account and the last time they were updated. If you have access to multiple accounts, they will all appear here.
By clicking on one of your Launchcloud accounts from the Android dashboard, you’ll find all of your folders displayed to you as cards. Open a folder and you’ll see all of its forms displayed in a similar way.
Cards can be sorted either in alphabetical order or by the date they were last updated. To toggle between the two viewing options, click the three dots in the top right corner, then click the “Sort by” button.
If you’re looking for a specific document, you can quickly find it by using the search icon in the top right corner.
Filling in a Form
When you access a Form, it's really easy and intuitive to then fill it in. You just tap the element in the Form you want to complete and a keyboard or other relevant option will appear. For signatures and star ratings just use your finger or stylus to tap or draw your selection.
While operating a live form, you can enter Kiosk Mode by clicking the the box with an arrow in it in the top right corner of the form. Entering Kiosk Mode will lock the app so that it can only display the specified form. This allows you to let users respond to your form without your supervision without having to worry about them accessing the rest of your account.
Tapping the three lines in the top left will show you the sidebar. When this is open you will see your profile and all your open Forms, just switch between them by tapping them or close them by swiping. The starred forms here are for easy access.
By clicking on your profile image you can change you profile picture and your password.
On this page you will see an overview of statistics about your account, such as the number of forms that have been submitted. If you are in an area with no internet connection, the forms sent will show as 'queued'. As soon as the internet signal returns these queued forms will send, and then move to the 'Submitted Forms' area. At the top right is a small sync button; pressing it will move along any forms that are queued.
We show you device storage because if you are offline we need to store the forms until you have a connection. This is important information if you are taking a lot of photos or videos because we will temporarily use the device memory until the connection is able to send the data.
[Important] However if media is removed from the device storage/gallery while submissions are queued the form data will send without the media.
The Starred button displays all of the folders and forms you’ve favorites, providing easy access to your most relevant documents. To favorite an item, click the star icon in the bottom right corner of its card.
