One of the incredible things about MESH is the ability to access all of your form entries with the click of your mouse. Data Entries is the section of the web platform we like to refer to as your digital filing cabinet. Any work completed on the mobile platform is logged and stored here, and always available to view, export, and/or print.
To find these files, log into the web platform. Using the navigation menu on the left side click on Data Entries, which expands to reveal three options:
- Feed View
- Table View
Feed view is the easiest way to navigate between all options, and behaves much like the chronological feed of any social media account. The most recent entries (based on your filters) will appear at the top, and continue downward.
There are 3 different filter types that can be found on the left hand side of the screen:
Form Filter allows the user to select a form from the list. Only entries completed and uploaded using that form (on the mobile platform) will be visible in the feed.
User Filter allows the user to select a name from the list. Only entries completed and uploaded by that user account will be visible in the feed.
Date Filter allows the user to select a custom range, or pre-stated range of dates. Only entries completed and uploaded in that timeframe will be visible in the feed.
Once feed view has been filtered to your needs, all associated entries will be visible.
Table view essentially lists all entries. It allows you to choose a form from the 'Data' drop down at the top, and will list all entries associated with it. You can also sort by date from the left hand side.
Map view allows you to view entries based on location. Simply click on the blue pin to access information related to it. You can sort by date range on the left hand side.
By clicking the 'View Entry' you will see all information submitted for that particular form entry. This form can be printed or exported as a PDF, directly from that window.
Print or exporting data entries
The 'PRINT' and 'EXPORT PDF' buttons located in the top right corner, allow users to submit completed forms digitally, or print hard copies for individuals that do not have access to the MESH Web Platform.
Note: If you would like to view entries in the map or table view, you must ensure the proper form version is selected at the top of the window.
From the table view screen, you can do a bulk export and print. This is useful if you need several entries from the same form over a specific date range.
Use the check boxes to select the entries intended to be part of the bulk export, and click the 'MANAGE DATA' button in the top right corner of the screen.
This will open a window, allowing the user to select from several options:
Please ensure that you do not accidentally DELETE anything you do not wish to be removed.
The only occasion that the bulk export should be used is if you require a larger number of form entries to be printed or saved directly to your hard drive. For further clarification please do not hesitate to reach out on our chat bubble at www.go-evo.com.
