Potential to skip form intro screen on Android

Is it possible to configure the Android application to show the initial
field-data entry screen when a new form is opened, rather than showing the
form intro screen with instructions for how to complete the form?

If not implemented, but you are thinking about it, it would be good to have
this be a device or user specific settings, so the intro screen can be
turned off after using the application for a while.

Ray,

This is definitely something we’ve been considering. It’s tricky to find
the right balance between learnability for new people and optimization.

One option I’ve been thinking about is just using a countdown, so you see
that screen N times and then it goes away, but that lack of consistency
seems like it may not be a benefit to the users.

Clayton,
Or perhaps a check-box on the intro screen that says “don’t show this
reminder again”.
Good to know it’s being considered.
Thanks, Ray
