Knowing the exact date, time and geolocation of each elements in your digital form can be a relevant information. Did you know that with Kizeo Forms you can get this information automatically in your custom-made report?
It is possible to get a timestamp for the following elements: Photo, Signature, NFC tag, Barcode and Geolocation. This information will be displayed in the custom-made report(s). To do so, you need to add :time at the end of the element’s tag.
For instance, in a daily report, a construction site photo was taken and you would like to display in your report the exact date and time when this photo was captured. The tag of this particular photo is called ##contruction_site## . To get the date and time in your Word or Excel report, add :time at the end of the tag, which will be ##contruction_site:time## .
To obtain a different time/date format, you can add the following text in your tag:
In order to activate this option, go into your element’s options (pencil icon). Click on the Advanced tab and check the checkbox called “Get the location automatically“.
For instance, you are filling an inventory form on your mobile device. Inside this digital form, there is a barcode element, which tag is called ##barcode_name## . To know the exact location where the item was scanned, add :latitude and :longitude to this tag: ##barcode_name:latitude## and ##barcode_name:longitude# #.
Now, you know how to get in your reports the timestamp and geolocation automatically!
