Meta Items

Data for meta items is collected automatically without asking the user. Hence no label is required and you only need to specify the type and a unique name.

Note

Smap automatically adds the start time, end time and device id to every new survey as this information is important for quality assurance of the data. Hence you will not need to specify these meta item
