Text Field

A Text field is a simple input field where respondents can enter a brief piece of text, such as their name, email address, or a short answer to a question.

Long Text Field

A Long Text field is designed to accommodate longer responses, such as comments, feedback, or essay-style answers. It provides respondents with more space to express their thoughts and ideas.

Add a description to your survey

You can add a short description to the field to provide context or instructions for respondents. In this section, you can customize the text and add images or links.

Set maximum characters

You can set a maximum number of characters that respondents can enter in the field, ensuring that responses stay concise and relevant.

Identify a default value for your text field

For the "Text field", you can specify a default value that will be automatically populated in the field for each respondent, saving them time and effort.

Make this field Admin-only

Hide the field from respondents and keep sensitive data private from respondents.

Mandate respondent input
