Can I create a table in the App Builder?
Yes! Our loop functionality allows you to use the tables that you have in your paper forms on your mobile device. Loops will allow you to repeat a set of fields as many times as you need to - just like you adding another line item to a table. You can then use the PDF Designer to customize how your table looks on your PDF reports.
Looking at the table above, our Loop feature will let you add as many Item #s, Descriptions, Qty, and Last Date Updated as there are in your Inventory.
Here is an example of a Loop screen on an iOS device:

Watch our video on how to setup a loop screen and to see a preview of Loops in action on a mobile device. Or, read our tutorial on loops here.
Our Grid and Grid (pre-populated) styles for Loop screens will give you the table look on your mobile device. Grid is still a Beta feature, so you'll need to send us a note at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to have it enabled for your account.
For the best mobile experience, we do not recommend using grid on devices with smaller screens.
