Jonathon has a degenerative eye disease, which is gradually reducing his central focus. “I think about the implications of losing my vision daily and it terrifies me. I’m lucky that my vision will not completely disappear, but millions of children around the world are losing their eyesight unnecessarily every day. I want to help change this.”
MoDevUX was located in Canvas' backyard this year so I couldn't help but attend and see what I could learn from my peers. The convention held a wide arrangement of speakers, workshops, and attendees from a myriad of industries focused on improving their mobile experiences.
As a mobile App Consultant, I speak to hundreds of current and potential clients every week who ask be about the process of going paperless using Canvas. I explain that we at Canvas can take almost all of your current paper forms, and covert them over to mobile applications using our Send Us Your Form service, or SUYF for short. The first form we convert is always FREE, and every form after that is only $50. But you always have the option of using the Canvas Application Store and downloading any pre-made mobile form, or simply just making a form from scratch using our robust App Builder.

- Can I copy and paste fields and screens?
- How do I repeat a section of my Canvas app?
- How does my mobile worker enter multiple line items on my work order/invoice/service ticket?
- What is a "list" screen?
So I thought I would answer all of these questions in one fell swoop and add a powerful tool to your Canvas app building toolkit! List Screens allow you to repeat a single screen (Simple List) or multiple screens (Advanced List) giving your mobile workers the flexibility they need in the field to account for the fact that all jobs are different.

One of the more powerful features at Canvas is called "Reference Data". It allows you populate fields and auto-populate fields by having your Canvas app reference a file that you upload to your Canvas account. The most popular uses of this feature is for uploading a list of CLIENT LIST or a PRICE LIST. By uploading a Price List you can have complete control over the pricing that your field workers are offering, save them time by not having to remember or look up pricing, and present more data about your services so your customers know exactly what you did and what materials were used on the job.
