New form designer improvements

Hi CommCare Users,

We recently released several improvements to the form designer that will
hopefully make using it a little easier:

  • The new “Phone Number or Numeric ID” question type will let you enter
    numbers with leading zeroes and symbols used in phone numbers.

  • Repeat-related properties can now be easily accessed in the Logic
    Section, and you can drag a question into the Repeat Count input.

  • Many question property inputs are no longer shown for question types
    where they don’t make sense, such as most of the properties for data nodes
    and several of them for groups and repeats.

  • When you add a Constraint Message or Hint Message without already
    having an associated Itext ID, it now automatically creates one for you
    instead of giving an annoying error message.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike and the commcarehq team thanx for this one. I intend to change the case properties in my app from long number to the new phone number for the same question.
Is this possible without the case property changing?. I just want the report to continue seamlessly.

Hi Emeka,

You can certainly change the question type without affecting the case
property. Only if you change the question ID or the case property name
would you encounter difficulties.

Thanks,
Amelia
