The Array platform is split into two separate, inter-related sections: the admin dashboard and the Form App.
The Array platform is split into two separate, inter-related sections: the admin dashboard and the Form App. In this article, we will introduce you to the Form App’s functionality and familiarize you with its navigation. To learn more about the admin dashboard, click here.
The Form App is primarily focused on administering surveys and collecting responses to your forms, in essence, pure data collection with the ability to access reports but not create or edit forms. For many account operators, this is all they’ll need. If an admin user, start submitting forms on your desktop computer by using the form app.
Finding the Form App
Upon logging in to your Array account, you’ll land on the admin dashboard. To find the Form App, you’ll need to open the navigation sidebar by clicking the three lines in the top left corner of the page. Scroll to the bottom and click the “Form App” button.
Form App Dashboard
The Form App Dashboard provides an overview of your account activity — namely 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 Array accounts from the Form App 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.
After finding the form you’re looking for, click to open a live version of it. You’ll be given a blank copy of the form that’s ready to accept new data. The results will be saved to your account as a response.
As with the admin dashboard, the Form App has its own sidebar for navigation. Here you’ll find a link back to both the Form App dashboard as well as the broader Array admin dashboard (remember that these are two inter-related sections of the platform). You’ll also be able to view all your starred content.
The Starred button displays all of the folders and forms you’ve favorited, providing easy access to your most relevant documents. To favorite, an item, click the star icon in the bottom right corner of its card.
Occasionally, you may have multiple field reps operating on the same Array account at the same time. To make sure that the latest information is being reflected in the Form App’s dashboard, you’ll need to sync your account. To do this, click the button with the three dots in the top right corner, then click “Sync.”
The Array web app works on any device with an internet connection. The app is compatible with all browsers but we advise using Chrome or Firefox to get the best outcome.
