The following table describes how Tap Forms imports Bento forms and fields. Field types not on this list are not supported in Tap Forms.

Bento Tap Forms
Form A Bento form is converted to a Tap Forms layout. Once you’ve imported a Bento template, you can further customize the layout in Tap Forms or add additional layouts to meet your needs.
Text Bento text fields can be one or more lines long. Tap Forms has 2 different text field types.
  • Text fields are used for shorter one-line bits of information, such as a Movie Title.
  • Note fields are used for larger amounts of text, such as a Movie Synopsis.
  • Tap Forms will convert Bento text fields into Text or Note fields depending on the height of the field in the Bento form.
  • Tall fields in Bento will be converted to Note fields in Tap Forms.
  • Small fields in Bento will be converted to Text fields in Tap Forms.
Number Bento Number fields are converted to Number fields in Tap Forms. The Number Formatter is set to Decimals.
Currency Bento Currency fields are converted to Number fields in Tap Forms. The Number Formatter is set to Currency and the Decimal Places is set to 2. Note: Tap Forms supports only the currency that you have by default according to the system’s regional settings. For example, in Canada, all currency values will be in CAD. In the UK, all currency values will be in GBP.
Counter Counter fields are converted to Number fields.
Duration Duration fields are converted to Number fields with the Number Formatter set to “hours, mins”.
Rating Rating fields are converted to Tap Forms Rating fields.
Dates and Times Times are converted to Time fields. Dates are converted to Date fields. If the Date field has the flag to show the Time set, then it’s converted to a Tap Forms Date & Time field.
Media Media fields are converted to Photo fields. The photo file is also extracted and copied into the Tap Forms Photos folder.
Checkbox Checkbox fields are converted to Checkmark fields.
Choice Choice fields are converted to Text fields. The values in the Choice field are converted to a Pick List and associated with the Text field.
Calculation Calculation fields are converted to Calculation fields. Tap Forms makes a best guess at trying to convert the Bento formula to a Tap Forms formula, but it’s not going to be very accurate since Bento supports more calculation options than Tap Forms at this time. You will probably have to re-do your calculation formulas after the migration.
Location Locations fields are converted to Location fields. The longitude and latitude values are also set as the location name in Tap Forms.
Phone Phone number lists are converted to a Phone field in Tap Forms. Only the first phone number is imported. All other phone numbers in the list are ignored.
Email Email lists are converted to an Email field in Tap Forms. Only the first email address is imported. All other email addresses in the list are ignored.
URL URL fields are converted to a Website field. Only the first value is imported. All other URL values are ignored.
Related Records Related Record fields are converted into Link to Form fields with the Many to Many Link Type set. Tap Forms also re-establishes the relationship data between forms.
File List File List fields are converted to File Attachment fields with the Multi-File Enabled setting turned on. Files are copied into the Tap Forms Attachments folder.

The Bento Template Importer will be improved over time as new features are added to Tap Forms which match some of the features previously available in Bento.
