Adding Fields to a Form

Each Form is made up of a series of questions, known as Fields. Fields represent simple types of data, such as text, dates and numbers, but can also provide a pick-list of values to select from, such as True or False answers.

To add field to a Form, tap or press the Fields tab on the Form Details page. Enter a short name for the field that will appear as a label on the form and a longer description that will appear as help text. Select the data type, such as Text and provide the numeric order of the Field within the Form.
