1 UseForm Questions
are mostly used for demographic questions.
Most people use this question type to make use of the validation
features and make sure
in the correct way.
E.g.: the email
contains an ‘@
’, the date
in the same way
in all the surveys to avoid mistakes, … Mind that you won’t
be able to filter
on these questions later on when you analyse your results.
Form Questions contain Drop downs, Date pickers, Email-checkers
etc. All of which will be explained below. All Form Elements
on the same page.

3 Form details
- Enter your question here.
- Text Area: This Form Element gives the respondent a large area to fill in the answer or specifics you asked for.
- Text - Single line: If you don't need a lot of information, a single line will limit your respondent to only fill in the information you need and ask for.
- E-mail: This box checks the '@' and the tale of the email address to make sure people add a real email address. If the text doesn't have the structure of an email address, the text will stay red until it does.
- Date: To make sure everyone writes the date in the same way, you can use a Date Field. This field allows the respondent to choose a date from a calendar. This way the date has the same notation in all reports.
- Number: Need only a number such as an age or phone number? Choose the Number Field. Only numbers and no text can be entered in this field.
- Drop down: When respondents click on the box, a field with answers will appear out of which they can choose one.
- If you change your mind about an element, you can delete it here.
- Add more form elements here.
- Enter the answers of your drop down here. Separate each answer by using a comma.
- Mandatory: If you make a question mandatory, this means the respondent is obliged to answer the question before moving forward with the survey. If you switch Mandatory to Yes, more Yes/No buttons will appear next to every Form Element. This way you can choose for every Form Element whether or not the respondent is obliged to answer.
