The tab key is supported on desktop platforms, however not all question types in the survey can be tabbed through. It is possible to tab text, integer and decimal questions, however other question types that do not have an input box or support the tab key will be skipped.
Can you expand further on what you mean by "is there a key that will select the answer that is highlighted?"
Thanks Philip. I mean when tabbing through on most forms you can hit enter to select a highlighted response. For Survey123 on PC it looks like you have to click to select a response. I was wondering if there was a keyboard shortcut to select a response. Does that make sense?
Yea I second this one. In Filemaker it actually just goes to the next question for you (and will even drop down the drop down automatically for you).
In mobile just enable the button to be Next instead of Done.
Would really help with data entry speed.
In the upcoming 3.6 release we have made some improvements to the input controls (and other supported controls) to enable tab/enter to work correctly on desktops, as well as improving the enter/return key on mobile devices to tab to the next input field. The default keyboard behaviour now uses a custom enter key (on iOS and Android) all the input controls have been updated. There will still be some controls that do not support the tab or enter key, as they do not have a focus box, however this will be something we continue to address in the future.
The next beta builds available on EAC will include these improvements.
Thank you Phil! I am glad to see that the UI is starting to get some attention.
Will it just do to the next field or will there be control? I was thinking a new column like fieldorder that you could number 1,2,3 or 100,200,300 in blocks.
