While you are participating in a study, Ethica periodically collects the data specified under Data Sources section, usually once every five minutes. If at some point you prefer to stop this data collection, you can snooze the app. To do so, open the sliding menu by pressing on the icon on the top left corder of your home screen:
From the sliding menu, click on the green circle next to "Join Study":
This will pause the application for one hour. When you press snooze button, the app goes to sleep for 1 hour. During this one hour, you will see the following message on your home screen:
During this one hour, Ethica does not collect any data nor it will ask you any survey questions. When the one hour period is passed, Ethica resumes its operation. You can tap on snooze button again at any time, to either resume the study or put Ethica to sleep for another hour. You can do this as many times as needed.
As of now, snooze functionality is not available through the Ethica iOS app and it's only provided in Android.
