Data Capture is a form builder and a secure data storage service that provides M/IC Apps with a way to include Competition Entry, Lead Generation and other types of data capture.
Data Capture allows you to create competition entry or data capture forms. These submit data to M/IC, which can be exported as a CSV in M/IC Studio’s Data Capture tab.
Firstly you must ensure that your Project has Data Capture enabled. If it does not, create a support ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
You can either create new Data Capture form or use any existing one by importing it from another project, let's review the 1st case:
Click to "CREATE NEW FORM" on "Data Capture" tab of M/IC console
Specify Data Capture Name
Populate content of your Data Capture form under Header and Form tabs by adding UI elements (e.g. Input Text, Drop Down Lists, Radio buttons, Images, Postcodes and more
You can also add validation to these fields: e.g. mandatory or optional, email format, only numbers, postcode with some custom format, etc.
Validation of any field might be easily extended to any format you'd like via Regexp
Each field can be configured to accept unique values (e.g. user can submit more than 2 forms with the same email)
You can setup "Thanks for Voting" screen after user has been submitted a form, as well as "Submission is closed" As the result, you will get Data Capture form ready to be displayed in client app
Let's add some style by adding custom CSS and JS (if needed), this is Skin, which can be assigned to a submission form. Here are some examples:
Once Data capture is published within the event, users start voting and publishing results which you can view online by clicking on "View Records"
Your form can be triggered at various points in a user journey:
When the app loads
When the user passes a specified points threshold
Before entering app
When the user answers question correctly
When the user participates in a poll or rating
Can be manually triggered by producer
List of forms can also be displayed as a list on a separate tab in the app
Several different forms can be configured and used per 1 project, for ex. 1 form will be displayed for users, who scored 100pts, another for users who scored 200pts
Other Features Supported
Single or multiple stepped forms
Simple form builder using form element building blocks
