OIO Notes

Here are OIO's features/limitations (at least when it's fully functioning):
  • Can form branch (doesn't work yet on test server)
  • Can handle checkboxes/radio buttons
  • Can handle text boxes
  • Can handle multiple data types (new data types can be created by using regular expressions)
  • Can do hard range checks, but not soft
  • Can export/import data and forms to and from XML/delimited files
