Collect the exact information you need with flexible forms and subforms
Take advantage of the enhanced Form Designer and quickly design your forms and subforms in the exact way you wish. Use relevance rules to guide your users through the questions and automate your calculations with Calculated fields and Codes. Use Key fields to create unique combinations and Reference fields to link to other forms or the built-in geodatabase.
Assign Roles to users to refine their permission levels
Select from a list of available Roles and assign them as you find more suitable to control the way your team accesses the information and the forms in your database. Further refine the Roles by overriding the Permissions included in them for specific users.
Invite users to a database using one of the available languages
Use one of the available languages in ActivityInfo to invite your users to a database, form or folder and ensure miscommunication is avoided as they get the information they need in their language.
Create the structures you need by adding folders within folders and customize reporting with subforms within subforms
Organize your forms in the way you wish and create the structure of data that serves better your needs. Create as many folders as you need for your forms or add folders within folders.
Add subforms in your forms to add another level in your reporting and add subforms within subforms to create even more advanced structures.
Follow the breadcrumb to always know your location or to navigate quickly from one level to another.
Automate your calculations with the intuitive Formula editor
Make data analysis easier than ever by automating calculations inside your form. Use one or many of the available Formulas in the redesigned Formula editor and simplify your reporting.
Be in complete control of your database with Locks and Permission levels down to subform level
Lock any level of your database by using Key fields and manage when reporting can be done for each part of it.
Expand your control even more by assigning Roles and Permissions for specific folders, forms or even subforms.
