YOUR LIFE. ORGANIZED.
Create the Form
We will start from scratch, since there are no forms close to what we want.
Tap the plus [+] icon in the upper right corner, then tap the New button to
start a new form.
1. Select an Icon (or a photo)
2. Enter the title “Beer Tasting”.
3. Select “Personal” as the category.
4. Skip the Sort & Group for now (we will do that later).
5. Leave Hide Form setting as oﬀ (default).
6. Enter the ﬁelds, listed above.
Tap the green plus [+] or “Add a Field...” row to create a new ﬁeld.
For the Beer Style ﬁeld, tap Field Options and in
the Pick List setting, select the “Beer Styles” Pick
List created above.
Re-order the ﬁelds as desired by dragging up
and down, the 3 bars to the right of the ﬁeld
name. For this example we want to see the Beer Name and the Rating in
our master list of records so they must be the ﬁrst two ﬁelds. If you place
a photo or a check mark ﬁeld as the ﬁrst ﬁeld, Tap Forms will use the 2nd
and 3rd ﬁelds for the list view and the photo or check mark will appear to
the left of the next two ﬁelds. Check mark ﬁelds are live on the list view if
they’re the ﬁrst ﬁeld. This makes it easy to build a simple to-do style list.
Decide on Sorting and Grouping
Once the ﬁelds are entered, we will want to group
by Beer Style and sort by Rating.
And presto! We have our ﬁrst Tap Forms database!
Test – enter a few records
After we have a few records, we can view our data
and tweak the form as needed. As shown on the
right, grouped by Style, and sorted by Rating
