Basic Elements

Optional Fields

  • Default Value – text to automatically display in the field itself. If you don’t set a Default Value, the field will be left blank.
  • Description – help text that will show beneath the field to guide respondents as they answer.

Validation

  • Check Mandatory to make this field mandatory.

Display

  • Width is not used. (overridden by theme styles)
  • Height is not used. (overridden by theme styles)
  • Resizable is checked by default. If you don’t want users to be able to resize this box manually, uncheck the Resizable box.
  • If you don’t want the field label to display, check Hide Label.
  • To prevent respondents from entering text into the field, check to Disable the field. (Because this may confuse your respondents, we do not recommend that you disable a field.)
  • Private – checking this box limits who from your agency can see the results from that field. Because only one or two contacts at your agency will likely ever see these results, this option to add privacy to a field is not so important. (We recommend just leaving that box unchecked.)

Save

When you’ve finished filling out the form, Save.
