Account

Username

This shows you the username of the signed-in user. If the app shows the wrong username, sign out, and then sign in with the correct username.

View Account Details

Change Password

You can change your account password from the app—you don’t have to go to the Web Portal to change your password. Use your new password the next time you sign into the app or Web Portal.

Tip:You must know your current password in order to create a new one. If you can’t remember your password, go to the Web Portal, select Forgot Password and enter your email address. The system sends you an email that includes a link and instructions to reset your password.

"Change Password" overlay in the Windows app. The user enters their current and new password, then selects "Change".

Log Out

This action logs you out of the Mobile App. When you log out, the system permanently deletes all Drafts and Outbox forms and resets app settings to their default values.

Warning:Deleted data can’t be recovered.

Application

Image quality settings

Resolution

Image resolution (Resolution) and file size (Compression) both affect image quality.

Note:Your admin can set a maximum resolution and file size in the question properties. This limits the image and file size, regardless of your app-level setting. If the admin chooses to Use device settings, your app-level settings determine the image quality.

You only need to change the image settings when:

  • Your device is low on storage space.

  • Your admin doesn’t know how large the images should be to display properly.

  • Your admin has selected Use device settings.

The Resolution setting controls the size of the image itself. The larger the image, the better the resolution (quality). The Medium (default) option works well in most cases.

Tip: Only choose a large image size when you really need to. A form that has lots of large images increases the form submission size, processing times, and data usage on the mobile device.

There are four Resolution options:

Option Maximum length of the long edge
Small 640 pixels
Medium (Default) 1024 pixels
Original Original resolution and display size
Custom Custom value

Compression

The Compression setting controls the size of the image file. A higher compression reduces both the file size and the image quality.

Tip:If you choose a higher compression, we advise that you also choose a smaller Resolution.

Advanced settings

Other settings

Confirm send

Display a prompt to confirm that your form is ready to send. This gives you a chance to go back and edit the form before you send it.

Confirm discard

Display a prompt to confirm that you want to discard changes to an open form.

Note:We recommend that you keep this enabled to prevent accidentally losing work that you’ve completed.

Confirm row copy

Display a prompt to confirm that you want to copy a row from a Repeatable Section Summary Table. The prompt displays when you open an existing entry and select the copy icon.

Reset

Unregister device

This is an advanced setting that you shouldn’t use unless ProntoForms Support directs you to.

Reset forms

The support team might tell you to Reset Forms if the forms or other data on your device aren’t working. This action re-downloads data from the server and stores it on your device. You won’t lose any information that you already entered in a form.

Passcode lock

For added security, you can set up an app-level passcode. After you set up a passcode lock, ProntoForms prompts you for your passcode the next time you open the app. Only a user who knows the passcode can access ProntoForms data.

The ProntoForms Mobile App allows five passcode attempts before it applies a wait period and displays an alert.

The wait periods increase with each failed attempt:

Attempt number Wait period before next attempt
6 1 minute
7 5 minutes
8 15 minutes
9 or more 1 hour

Once you Turn Passcode On and set up a passcode, the Turn Passcode Off, Change Passcode and Erase all content… options become active.

Turn Passcode Off

Enter the passcode. The next time you use the app, you won’t have to enter a passcode.

Change Passcode

Select this option to enter the current passcode and then change it.

Erase all content…

Select this option if you want to erase all drafts, pending submissions, and app settings after 10 failed passcode attempts.
