So many of you GoCanvas users out there have been asking for it and now it has finally arrived……………………

Submission Editing

New Time Styles

You now have the ability the Select two new time styles in the app builder.

To select the new time styles:

  • Open your app in the App Builder (by clicking Edit)
  • Locate and drag the Time Field from the Palette onto your screen
  • Click the Edit Field button to the right of the field
  • Click the Advanced dropdown
  • Click on the Style  dropdown
  • You many now choose time as HH:MM:SS or MM:SS


Date and Time Fields in Calculations

We’ve also created the ability to include Date and Time fields in Calculations.

Within any calculation,  you can add, multiply, subtract or divide Times! This should really help all you folks using Time Cards!


Number Style for Text Boxes

Now you can enable a Number Style on a Text Box field. This can be enabled in the advanced options of the Text Box and will give the user a numeric key pad on the device when entering into the field.  This is really nice for phone numbers and US zip codes.  Previously you might have used our Integer field but since many phone numbers and zip codes are not Integers you had to use a text box and switch the keyboard on the device to view numbers for entry.

Don’t want Remember or Recall features? Now you can disable them! This a great feature, especiall for our  HIPPA users.  For a reminder on what Remember/Recall do click here.

Follow these steps to disable remember/recall feature for your app:

  • Click the More Dropdown for the specific app
  • Click on App features
  • Click Edit On the Remember Recall Options
  • For Remember/Recall enabled on this app? Uncheck the box
  • Click Save
