A textbox question allows the respondents to provide a detailed text response, spanning multiple lines.
5. Yes/no question
A Yes or No question only allows respondent to choose either a Yes or No answer only.
6. Checkbox question
A checkbox question is essentially a Yes or No question within a single line, commonly seen in documents that require you to accept their Terms & Conditions.
7. Attachment request
This is used when you require any extra documents from the respondents.
8. Appointment time
This allows you to set up appointments (events that have a specific date and time). This question also allows you to limit the number of attendees per appointment. An example of this could be scheduling Parent-Teacher interviews.
9. Request volunteers
This is a pre-defined Yes/No question that allows you to request volunteers from your respondents. It asks the respondents for a Working with Children (WWC) if they do not have one. You will be able to run a report of volunteers, and they will be displayed to staff carers on the mobile application.
10. Working with Children Check
This is a aslo a pre-defined Yes/No question that allows you to collect the Working with Children (WWC) from the respondents.
11. Date request
This is used to ask for a date like the date of birth.
This allows you to add a table with custom rows and columns. You can populate any cells of the table and any cells left blank, can be filled out by the carers/account owner.
13. Multi columned list
This allows you to add a table like format, but not like in Table, you'll only be able to populate the Heading and the first row. The rest will be for the carer/account owner to fill out.
The Signature question allows the administrator to specify the signature needed from the respondents.
The Acceptance is used to receive a signed consent from the primary carer (typically a parent/guardian). The box is there for the form creator (typically administrators) to add additional content such as exactly what the primary carer is actually consenting to (e.g. Yes, I allow my child to attend this excursion.).
- When Excursion Permission is selected, the Acceptance box will be greyed out and can't be edited.
- When Signed/Unsigned Custom Form is selected, you can edit the text populated.
3. Participant acceptance
This field allows the member (i.e. students, club members, participants, employees, etc.) to provide a signature as acknowledgement of something.
1. Additional notes
This is used to add instructions or other information between questions.
2. Attachment for user
This allows administrators and staff carers to attach a file that profile owners can either open, download and print.
3. Payment request
You can use this to collect payments from carers/account owner through Stripe. To enable this feature, you must set it up here first: Tools > Group Settings > Setup Payments. For more information on how to set this up, please refer to this article: How does an Administrator set up the Payments Feature?
