The Connect Device step type allows participants to connect their Fitbit, Garmin, or Omron device to a project in MyDataHelps. Connect one device per step.
The connect device step type does not have an "optional" setting. We recommend adding a question step prior to all connect device steps to ask if the participant wants to connect a device, and enable navigation rules to skip the step if the participant does not want to connect a device.
