Adding a Week field
The following section describes how to add a Week field when designing a Form. This field is useful if you want to add a Lock to your Form or you want to create a Form/Subform for weekly reporting. Users can select a Week from a Calendar when adding Records or type the Week using the suggested format. The Week format in ActivityInfo is YYYYW00, where '00' is a number from 1 to 53.
Please note that the Week field uses the EPI week convention.
