Send report of a list of checkboxes

hi, i don’t know if this is the correct section to post my question(eventually move my request in the right place. thanks :slight_smile: )

I need to create a checkboxlist that my volunteers have to compile with values such as:

  • level of fuel (sliding bar) - [slide value]
  • level of water (sliding bar) - [slide value]
  • number of hatches - [insert value]
  • number of shovels - [insert value]
  • number of hoses - [insert value]
  • Engine works? - [Yes /Not check right box]
  • and so on …

when my volunteers completed this checkboxlist i need they can send a report of all values to an email box or on google Drive Folder.
So I need that the AppInventor send or a report list such as a label …or a screenshot of entire checkbox list (or in another way that you know…).

How can i make this??
what commands i have to use to send this report in one way or other that you know??

thanks so much

What have you tried? This Project is not difficult to code.

Sending the eMail
This example works to send eMail . You must run this in a real Android device (not an emulator). Most emulators will not support the ActivityStarter action. So far, it has ‘never failed.’ to transfer the Subject and content to gmail. Try coding the ActivityStarter using the example. Tell us what happens. The SurveryResults contain the vallues of

  • level of fuel (sliding bar) - [slide value]
  • level of water (sliding bar) - [slide value]
  • number of hatches - [insert value]
    after you provide the code.

The way to create this app is to learn to use a slider, TextBox etc., then learn to create an eMail containing the values. Alternatively, when you are more experienced in coding, you can send the values to a Shared GoogleSheet on your GoogleDrive.


Creating the sliders and TextBoxes
You need to acquire some basic App Inventor 2 coding skills. One way to do that is to use these resources to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor’s Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook … the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book ‘teaches’ users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

This sounds like a data collection app, which would be handled better with a Google Sheet.
See FAQ Section: Google Sheets

@ABG thanks, but the app we created has many screens inside: someone redirect to googleDriveSheet/or Social Pages and others parts remain into the app (without the activityStarter).
In particular this part of Vehicles control, I prefer it remains into the app.

@SteveJG thank you so much for your enormous help. It works !
Even if we diden’t introduce the “br” part in the block 'cause there wasn’t space …maybe beacause we added too much voices in the checklist and we couldn’t adds many “br”…but we have by-passed this issue adding space into text to transcribe.

See you soon! Thanks Thanks Thanks

----- updates:
we found a way to compact the strings part and insert “br” to order the list. thanks another one time
