Custom Forms

The form can be open(no login needed to answer) or closed(only logged-in attendees can answer). Just share the link of the form so the attendees can answer it, and all the answers are available to export.

Custom form settings

Is it possible to fill out the form not being logged in to the platform?

Yes! Simply set the form as Public. To do so, on the form's page, click on Edit and check the field Public.

Is it possible that the attendee receives a confirmation email after answering the form?

Yes, it is! On the form screen, click on Edit and after that, on the Action to execute after the form is finished change it to email and on the next field, select the email you want.

This action is not available for public forms.

What is the registration form complement option for?

With the registration form complement enabled, you will be able to attach extra questions to the default registration form that will only be viewed by specific groups of people. Click here for further information on that.

How do I set a deadline for filling out a form?

On the form screen, click on Edit and after that, change the close date field to the final date and time to fill out the form.

How does the content mask work?

To mask an answer box is to change the type and amount of characters allowed as a valid answer to this question. For example: when creating a question that requires the participant's ZIP code you may want to limit these answers to 5-digit numerical characters.

You will only see the option to create a mask if Plain text is the selected answer type.

While creating the question choose Plain text as the answer type. Click on the Edit button at the top right corner, then click on the question. You will now see a section that says Mask as shown in this picture:

Keep in mind that:

  1. The character # means any number, this way participants type only numbers on the questions' answer
  2. The letter A means any letter, this way participants type only letters on the questions' answer
  3. The character N means any number or letter, this way participants type numbers or letters on the questions' answer
  4. In case you wish to be registered with official structure (with points and traces) you can add, just remember that on the form and registration will enter automatically this format and content. So if you added a mask structure, it'll go to the participants' profile with this structure.
