Epicollect5 provides an intuitive and easy to use drag & drop form builder.
The formbuilder requires a mouse or trackpad so touch device like iPads or Android tablets are not supported yet. We therefore recommend to build your form(s) on a desktop or laptop.
A minimum screen width of 1024 px is also required to be able to show all the user interface controls.
Currently Epicollect5 allows a maximum of 300 questions per a single form, and a maximum number of 5 linked (hierarchy) forms.
The form builder features a three columns layout:
  • Left column: the available inputs
  • Middle column : the inputs added to each form
  • Right column: the currently selected input settings
By default, each input is shown on a single screen on the mobile app. This allows space for the popup keyboard and the question at the same time. You might want to have more than one question on a page, in that case just use a group.
Remember, you cannot set jumps on inputs within a group, just on the group input. More on jumps.


You can use any UTF-8 language in your forms. The full list is here.
The mobile app instead is translated in the following languages:
  • English
  • Italian
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Polish
If you are using a different language from the ones above, the mobile app questions will be in that language but the mobile app buttons and labels will still be in English.
If you are willing to provide a missing translation for the mobile app, let us know.
