    Feature Request: Android App: Choose Fields to Display

    Asked by Scott Oakley on November 08, 2013 at 05:59 PM

    I like the new Android app, but I was wondering if there's any way to change which information shows up in the list of form submissions.  In the list of submissions, each entry shows the form title in bold and then below it, two fields.  The problem for me is tha these to fields are optional and ususally empty.  Ideally I'd like to have the customers name appear so I can tell which is which.  Is this possible?

    Hello, 

    After trying out the Android JotForm app, I've concluded that there is no option on the app to select which fields you would like to appear resumed under the Form's title. 

    I will go ahead and raise a Feature Request ticket to our Development Team, so that they can evaluate the feasibility of adding the functionality that will allow you to choose the fields to display.

    Now I can't promise they will implement the request, nor can I provide a timeframe when they will have any answers to what we will be requesting. Nevertheless, I do believe, you have pointed out a very valueable question, that should be addressed to our Development Team. 

    Now, just to note, there could be a chance the feature would not be possible, as they would have to find a way to develop this in a way that suits all types of workflows used with our forms. Despite that, this is a matter for a Development to decide.

    If you do need any other assistance, do let us know. Thank you.

    Thanks for listening.  So I guess the other side of the question is, why does the app display certain fields in a certain order?  As a test, I created a test form and added six text box fields and named them the number of the order that I added them.  This is the result:

    @soakley75

    Thanks for providing more details and screens. Your request might be the answer to help improved the sub-fields structure on the submissions view for android app so we'll let our higher team handles this. Your first request has been escalated to our dev already for a review. Once we get any information about it or any updates, we'll let you know here.

    Thank you so much!
