When creating a new form or editing an existing form, it is useful to view and test the form first before publishing it. This will help ensure that your form design is correct before sending it to your fieldworkers' handsets.
To preview your form, navigate to the form's Design tab (1) and select Preview (2) from the toolbar. From the drop-down, you can choose to view your form as it will appear on the mobile app, or on the web.
A new window will open, giving you a preview of what the form will look like to your fieldworkers/respondents. You can test the form by entering responses directly into the preview. All field references, validation, skip logic, default values, functions and embedded media will apply, giving you an accurate representation of the live form.
Note: Responses cannot be submitted through the form preview. No data captured in the preview will be saved or included on the analyse page.
If you make any changes to the form, a notification indicating 'New version available' (3) is shown in the preview window, prompting you to refresh the preview to view the latest version of the form. Refreshing the preview takes you to the start of the form to ensure any changes to form logic are also taken into account.
When previewing a form you can choose to switch between pages, or proceed sequentially. To switch between pages when previewing a form select the menu icon (1) in the top right corner and select Page Listing (2) from the drop-down. Choose the page to switch to from the table of contents listed.
If the form is available in more than one language, you can switch to that language on the Design page (4) and select Preview to launch the preview in the context of the selected language.
You can also Preview your form from the drop-down menu on the project's Dashboard tab (1) or from right-hand side panel on the form's Overview tab (2).
