123FormBuilder is equipped with all the field types that you might need for building your form. In this article, you will learn how to choose the right field.
The most common input field is the Short answer field. Users can type letters, digits, and special characters. Simply change its label text and you are good to go. You are also able to change the field validation to avoid user mistakes
Collect more information with the Long answer field. Receive a large amount of information such as comments, notes, feedback, impressions, etc.
For numeric input use the Number field. It works great with Age, Quantity, Number of registration inputs.
We developed fields that have a certain field validation established. For example, the Email address does not allow input in other format than email@example.com
The Phone number, Address, and First/Last name fields have a predefined structure and are composed of subfields. These types of fields support autofill.
For questions that require only one answer, for example: Yes/No, use the Single choice field. With this type of field, form users can only choose one answer.
When you have several options, go for the Multiple choice field. Users will have the ability to select one or more options.
To distinguish these two fields look at the symbol next to the options. Single choice fields are represented by circles, while Multiple choice fields by squares.
The Dropdown field saves a lot of space and is suitable for a large list of choices. Enable the searchable option to help users find the option they are looking for.
Create a multi-page form by placing New page/Page break fields. Divide your forms into sections and this way users will not be intimidated by endless forms.
You can offer your respondents the possibility of uploading a file or an image by using File/Image upload field. By using Link field, they can share with you a link or even sign the form if Signature field has been added on the form.
If you want to collect consent/agreement from your respondents, you can add Terms of service field on your form.
If you can not find a field you are interested in at a quick glance, you can always try the search function.
