AutoCapture collects data that does not need to be entered manually.
For example, you don’t need to ask your responder for their name since you already know his or her name within the system, but you would prefer to have it mentioned somewhere in the response. So to avoid unnecessary data entry for the field respondent, the field is hidden from the user and is filled automatically depending on the AutoCapture settings.
Options available with AutoCapture are:
Responder name - Sometimes handy for adding the responders information into the exports.
Dates and times - For example when the user really answered the response, or when the response was sent to the server (might differ when working online or offline).
Same Answer - For example, If you want to ask the responders name at the beginning of the interview, but you want to repeat this at the last summary page for report purposes as well.
Other - When you want to generate a unique number for each of your responses, you can use the option Unique ID v2.
So to summarise AutoCapture is a hidden field that collects information without the users involvement and adds them into your reports automatically.
We believe this new component will help when creating reports that suit your specific needs.
