Q: I am getting the following error:
"https://iformbuilder.com/exzact/xmlrpc2.php. Would you like to connect to the server anyway? The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be "iformbuilder.com" which could put your confidential information at risk. "
A: This is typically caused to an incorrect date on the device. If you allow a device to become fully uncharged the date can get set to 1970. To fix the issue simply go to your device settings, select General > Date & Time and then set your device to the correct date and time settings. You can now sync your device.
Q: I am getting the following error message: "System is running low on memory. Please consider quitting applications running in background or reboot your device."
A: This message is alerting you to the available RAM on the device. You need to completely shut down any applications that you would have opened, and are still running in the background. You can check the processes running in the background by double-clicking the home button on your device. This will bring up the multi-task menu, and you need to touch and hold any one of the App icons until they start to wiggle. You then need to kill these processes one at a time to free up your RAM.
Q: I can click on the data, but I cannot click on the tabs and the drop downs won't work.
A: This is usually because the web browser is either zoomed in or zoomed out. The data tab is the only tab that you can click on, while the other tabs only have drop down you can use. Try different zoom levels and see if the tabs will begin to drop down.
Q: I see a message which says: Network error. Error connecting to server:[iformbuilder.com] Please check Server name.
A: There are a few things you can try:
1. Close the app from background (double clicking the home button) and toggle Airplane mode on and then off again.
2. Restart the device completely with wifi turned on.
3. Close the app from background (double clicking the home button) and delete the server name text and re-key in the server name.
Q: Is it possible to log into an account on my device when there is no internet connectivity?
A: It is not possible to Login as a new user when you are offline. If you switch users, you need to be connected to get the appropriate forms. If you have initially logged in and downloaded the forms you can work offline. If you want to login as another user you will need to have data coverage or WiFi to download and access the appropriate forms.
Q: How can I collect data with multiple forms in a no-connectivity zone?
A: Any form(s) that are on the device are accessible and usable when offline. Simply fill out the form and selecting done (if all required questions are answered) then you will see an hourglass icon, this indicates that form is ready to be uploaded. Once you have WiFi or data coverage, your forms will be automatically uploaded to the server. If they do not, go to the device "Settings" on and scroll until you see "iForm", click that and make sure "Auto Sync" is on. If want to save the form and resume it later hit "Save" and this will save the form as a draft and you will see a ripped paper icon for that record which shows the form is in draft mode.
