Using the 3rd Party element

The 3rd Party Element creates a link to other software installed on the device. This functionality exists on both iOS and Android but is configured differently for each operating system.

Step 1


Select 3rd Party under Element Properties on the left side of the screen. You will see a new element pop up on your device view.


Step 2


Name the label of your 3rd Party element and write a description if necessary. Next, check the box next to Based on label to automatically fill in the Name field automatically. To make information required in order to submit the form, scroll down and select Required under Element Properties.


Step 3


Scroll down under Element Properties on the right hand side and fill out the box(s) iOS URL Scheme and/or Android Intent Package Name which allows the form to work with iOS and Android software. The last box called Key/Value (optional) will allows the form to connect with apps and specific functionalities in those applications.
