Updated over a week ago

Design your form and customize your form to the next level! The “Design” tab of your form’s editor page allows you to customize your form’s design.

Lets see how we can customize the form with different options:

Form type

The first option on the design tab is 'Form type', which you can select ' Classic form' or 'One question at a time'.

Classic form

The classic form shows all the questions and fields on one page. You can add a 'New page' to have a form with more than one page.

One question at a time

If you switch your form to the ' One question at a time', each question and field will appear on one separate page.


Show form progress bar

A progress bar helps respondents visualize how far they've progressed through the form. This can improve completion rates by providing a sense of accomplishment and reducing perceived form length.

Show form title

Displaying a clear and concise form title sets expectations for respondents and helps them understand the form's purpose.

Shuffle fields order

Shuffling the order of fields can help reduce bias and prevent respondents from falling into answer patterns. This is particularly useful for long forms with repetitive question types.

Shuffle the order of choices on fields

Shuffling answer choices can prevent respondents from picking the first option they see and encourage them to consider all choices more thoughtfully. This is especially beneficial for multiple-choice and drop-down fields.

Color and button customization

Personalize your form's appearance by tailoring colors to match your brand or create a specific mood. You can also customize button styles for a cohesive look.
