Note: Access to the Forms app is exclusively available to DashClicks Pro plan subscribers.

Pre-Defined Fields

Modify a Field Label:

To alter the label of a pre-defined field, click on the field's current label and input your new title. This process is applicable for fields such as 'First Name', 'Last Name', 'Email Address', 'Mobile Phone', and 'Address'.

Note: Hover over any pre-defined field in the form and access its settings to repurpose the field as required.

Basic Field Elements

1. Text Field:

This is a basic input field, similar to pre-defined fields. Create your own label by accessing the settings menu for each text field.

2. Text Area:

This works just like the Text Field but provides a larger area for text.

3. Number:

A specialized field that only accepts numeric inputs from the user.

4. Password:

A confidential input field that hides the user's input to protect against keyloggers. Typically used for entering personal passwords.

5. Checkbox:

A prompt that allows users to affirm their agreement by ticking the box on the left.

6. Select Boxes:

These work similarly to checkboxes, but allow for multiple options. Access the settings and navigate to the Data tab to create new options.

Note: The Label appears next to the select box on the form while the Value is the data you receive when a completed form is submitted.

7. Select:

A dropdown menu for users to select one option from a list. Create your labels and values by accessing the Data tab from the settings.

8. Radio:

Offers a selection of radio buttons for users to check. Access the settings menu for this field to create the values available.

Advanced Options

1. File Upload:

Provides an area for users to attach and upload files with the form submission. Use the Settings options to customize the file upload, including adding a custom error message in case of a failed upload.

2. Image Upload:

Similar to file upload, but only accepts common image file types. If the user is unable to upload a file type, an error message will automatically be displayed.

3. Email:

A field that prompts users to enter their email in the standard format.

4. URL:

This field requires users to input a standard web address.

5. Phone Number:

A field designed for phone number entries in the standard format.

6. Tags:

Enables the user to enter a continuous number of entries separated by commas. The maximum number of tags can be regulated via the settings menu under the Data tab. Setting Max Tags to 0 allows unlimited entries.

7. Date/Time:

Allows the user to select the date, month, year, and time via a calendar menu.

8. Day:

Provides three dropdown menus for the user to select the month, day, and year.

9. Time:

Allows users to input a time of day manually or by clicking the clock icon.

10. Currency:

Allows for numerical entries only and defaults to the currency associated with your account. You can change the currency from the Data tab in the settings menu.

11. Survey:

Facilitates the creation of questionnaires within the form by accessing the Data tab from the settings menu.

12. Signature:

Enables users to digitally sign using their mouse or touchscreen device.

Layout Options

These options allow you to modify the form's appearance.

1. Line Break:

Creates a dotted line for a clean separation between segments of your form.

2. HTML Element:

Creates a section containing a text editor for advanced coding techniques, accessible via the settings.

3. Content:

This element constructs a box where you can insert any desired text to your form. Tapping on the settings menu will reveal a text editor where you can introduce your content.

4. Columns:

This feature empowers you to partition your form into two discrete columns. Subsequently, you can drag and drop other fields and elements into each of these columns.

5. Field Set:

This creates a separate field that distinguishes the content within it from the content outside. This essentially allows you to effectively cluster sections of your form on the same page.

6. Panel:

The Panel is yet another grouping instrument that facilitates the segregation of your various fields into a unified group. By navigating to the settings options, you can assign a bespoke header to your panel.

7. Table:

This element lets you craft a customized table for all your fields and elements on the form. By default, it constructs a 3x3 table. However, the dimensions are flexible and can be modified by editing them in the settings menu specific to this element.

8. Tabs:

This feature allows for segmentation of your form across various tabs on the same form page. New tabs can be added and named via the settings menu. Then, you can simply drag and drop other fields into each tab.

9. Well:

This element acts as a content separator that gives the impression of receding into the page. This can be used to emphasize specific sections of your form.
