Adding The Poll Field

You can add as many Poll Fields as you want. Each Poll Field represents a single question, so if you have 10 questions, then you would add 10 Poll Fields. 

To add a Poll Field, do the following:

  1. With your Form open in the Form Edit Screen, expand the Advanced Fields options.
  2. Drag & Drop the Poll fields from the options into your Form, where you would like your question to appear. You can move it later if needed.
  3. Click on the new Untitled Poll Field in your form or click the triangle icon to open the configuration options.

General Configuration

Configure your Poll Question as follows:

  • Description – Enter the description for the form field. This will be displayed to the user and provide some direction on how the field should be filled out or selected.
  • Poll Question – Enter the question you would like to ask the user. The user can then answer the question by selecting from the available choices.
  • Poll Type – Select the field type you’d like to use for the Poll. Choose radio buttons or dropdown if question only has one correct answer. Choose checkboxes if your question requires more than one correct choice.
  • Field Choices – Add Choices to this field. You can mark each choice as checked by default by using the radio/checkbox fields on the left. Click the “+”  or “-” icons to add or remove more choices.
  • Bulk Add / Predefined Choices – Select a category and customize the predefined choices or paste your own list to bulk add choices.
  • Enable “Other” Choices – Check this option to add a text input as the final choice of your radio button field. This allows the user to specify a value that is not a predefined choice.
  • Randomize Order of Choices – Check the box to randomize the order in which the choices are displayed to the user. This setting affects only voting – it will not affect the order of the results.
  • Required Field – Select this option to make the form field required. A required field will prevent the form from being submitted if it is not filled out or selected.

Add as many Poll Questions as you want. Each Question can be differently configured and total scoring is based on all combined questions  in your Form.
