Device Magic forms can include all types of special form fields that would only work on a mobile device. You can add a picture field, for example, that lets people upload an existing picture, or you can force it to require a new picture to guarantee it was taken right then. There's also a barcode scanner field, location selector that can auto-fill via GPS, a signature line to sign forms with your finger, and a sketch field that lets people draw a diagram or sketch to outline what they're trying to explain. That's along with the standard form fields you'd expect, like text boxes, yes/no buttons, and more.

Once your form's made, it's time to deploy it to your team's devices. You'll use Device Magic's user roles to manage permissions, to make sure the right people have the correct forms. Then, you can setup custom notifications when forms are filled out, so the data goes to the correct teams immediately. And, if you need to make a new, custom form for a project, you can push it out to your team, pre-fill it with the most important data that you already have, and notify them to pick it up from there. Or, if your team needs to work offline, no problem: Device Magic's apps will let them add data offline, then will sync it back with your team when they're back online.

Then, it's time to put your data to work. Device Magic's forms let you setup integrations that can automatically turn your form entries into Word or PDF documents, or append the results to a spreadsheet. You can setup custom notifications when forms get filled out, use Zapier and other integrations to send form data to the other apps you use, or use its API to build your own apps around your Device Magic forms.

Building forms for your team—especially when you're just getting started—can be difficult and time consuming, so Device Magic offers to help there, too. They offer a service to build a form for you based on your needs. Or, if you already have a paper form you've been relying on, you can send in a copy of that form and the Device Magic team can turn it into a digital form for your team. They can even make report templates for your team, if you need.

If you need to make forms for your team to use in their work, Device Magic is a great option to quickly gather data on the field and send it to the correct teams or automatically route it to the apps where it's needed most.
