Negative Decimal Values

Hi All,

Does CommCare permit entering negative decimal values?
Right now, for decimal values I get the number pad and decimal(.)
point/negative(-) sign on the keypad but only the decimal works.
Is that the expected outcome?

Kind regards,

Sam,

That’s quite odd, CommCare definitely should be supporting entering
negative decimal values!

Do you have any constraints on the question? There’s a static analysis tool
that tries to identify things like how long an input can be, or whether a
value can be negative and restrict the inputs based on those constraints.

If not, can you submit a bug through CommCare HQ’s Report an Issue button
so we can get on this ASAP?
