The following table describes how Tap Forms imports Bento forms and fields. Field types not on this list are not supported in 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.
|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 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.|
|Simple List||Simple List fields are converted to Table fields in Tap Forms. Table fields are available in version 5.2 and higher.|
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.
