Flexible Inputs

This article provides information about flexible inputs for building a form.

Flexible inputs are fully customizable form items; you can add any question, answer, or information into the item as you build your form. There are 6 flexible inputs available: Short Answer, Long Answer, Checkbox, Radio Button, Dropdown, and Number.


The following sections give further details on each flexible input.

Short Answer

The short answer allows respondents to type their own answer or information into the field. Enter a question or prompt for the Label in the options panel. The short answer field can be customized to be Half-width or Required.


Long Answer

The Long Answer also allows respondents to type their own answer or information, but is more appropriate for information longer than a sentence or two. Enter a question or prompt for the Label in the options panel. You can also add Placeholder text in the answer field, set a Max Character Count, and/or make a response Required.


Checkbox

If you want a respondent to select a particular item, you can insert a checkbox. Enter a Label for the checkbox in the options panel. The checkbox can customized with an Assigned Price, set to Half-width, or required (Must be check to submit form).


You can use checkboxes to ask respondents to select multiple options within a list. First, Add a group or repeatable group to the form, and then add multiple checkboxes within the group.
