The Array platform is split into two separate, inter-related sections: the admin dashboard and the Web Forms. In this article, we will introduce you to the Web Forms functionality and familiarize you with its navigation. To learn more about the admin dashboard, click here.
The Web Form 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 Web Form.
Finding the Web Form
Upon logging in to your Array account, you’ll land on the admin dashboard. To find the Web Form, click on 'Web Forms' on the left-hand side of the page.
Web Form Dashboard
The Web Form 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 Web Form 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.
If you’re looking for a specific document, you can quickly find it by using the search bar.
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. See Capturing Data in Web Forms for more information
As with the admin dashboard, the Web Form has its own sidebar for navigation. Here you’ll find a link back to both the Web Form 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 favourited, providing easy access to your most relevant documents. To favourite, an item, click the star icon in the bottom right corner of its card.
In the navigation menu you have have access to your profile. To access this, click on your profile picture.
From here you have several options such as changing your password.
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 Web Form’s dashboard, you’ll need to sync your account. To do this, click the Sync' button in the top right corner.
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.
