Basic Field Elements
The Text Field element is a basic text field that functions the same as the pre-defined fields. You will need to create your label by accessing the settings menu for each text field.
The Text Area is functionally the same as the Text Field but provides a much larger text field.
The Number field is just like a text field but accepts only number inputs from the user.
The Password field allows users to enter text, numbers, or characters while hiding the input from keyloggers. This is what you typically see and use on any form or website where you enter a personal password.
This element allows you to create a checkbox prompt. Users will read the text and check the box on the left if the prompt applies to them.
Select Boxes are similar to the checkbox element, but allow you to create multiple options to select. By default you will only have one box, so you will need to access the setting to create new options. Once you access the settings, click over to the Data tab.
The Label is what will appear next to the select box on the form. The Value is the data you will receive when you obtain a completed form from a user.
Select is a dropdown menu that allows users to select one option from the list. You will need to create your labels and values by accessing the Data tab from the settings as pictured in the above heading.
Radio provides a selection of radio buttons for users to check. Once again, you will need to access the settings menu for this field element to create the values you want to be available.
This provides an area for users to attach and upload files to go along with the form submission. The Settings options allow you to customize the file upload by adding a custom error message in the event of a failed upload.
Image upload works similarly to file upload, but will only accept common image file types including JPEG, PNG, GIF, PSD, and more. If the user is unable to upload a file type of their choosing, they will automatically receive an error message.
The Email field prompts users to enter their address in the standard email format ([email protected]).
The URL element is a text field that requires users to enter something in the form of a standard web address (www.examplesite.com).
This field is for phone number entries in the standard format of (123) 456-7890.
The Tags field allows the user to enter a continuous number of entries with each separated by a comma. You can regulate how many tags a user may enter by accessing the settings menu. Click over to the Data tab and enter a number under Max Tags. If Max Tags is set to 0, the user can enter an unlimited number of tags.
The Date/Time field allows the user to click the field and access a calendar menu. They will be able to select the date, month, and year as well as the time when using the clock below.
This element causes three dropdown menus to appear to select the month, day, and year.
The time element allows you to enter a time of day manually or by clicking on the clock icon on the right side of the field.
This element allows for numerical entries only. It will automatically default to the currency associated with your account. However, you can change the currency by accessing the Data tab from the settings menu.
The Survey element allows you to create a questionnaire within the form. You will need to access the Data tab from the settings menu to create your questions.
The signature field allows users to write their signature using their mouse or touchscreen device.
The Layout section allows you to modify the appearance of the form itself. To finish this article, we will go through each option that’s available to you.
This creates a dotted line that helps to provide a clean break between segments of your form.
The HTML element allows you to create a section that contains a text editor for more advanced coding techniques. You will need to access the settings for this field to access the editor, which is found under Content.
This content element creates a box where you can add any text you would like to your form. If you click on the settings menu, you will find a text editor where you can enter your content.
This element allows you to break your form up into two separate columns. You can then drag other fields and elements into each column.
This element creates a field that separates the content inside of it from the content outside. You can effectively group sections of your form on the same page.
The Panel is another grouping tool that allows you to separate your various fields into a contained group. You can provide a custom header to your panel by accessing the settings options.
This allows you to create a customized table for all of your fields and elements on the form. By default, this will create a 3x3 table. However, you can customize the dimensions by editing them in the settings menu for this element.
This allows you to segment your form across various tabs on the same form page. You can add new tabs and name them within the settings menu. Then, you can drag and drop other fields into each tab.
Finally, the Well is a content separator that gives the appearance of sinking into the page. This can help to highlight specific sections of your form.
