How can I configure questions on forms?

This article will show you how to add, edit or remove questions from forms, as well as how to set up the answer types in order to gather general information about the participants.

We understand that forms can be created for various purposes, and that's why we'll show you how to configure questions on registration forms, feedback forms, and custom forms.

Adding new questions to forms

The process to add new questions to forms will be the same for the three types of form offered by InEvent:

  1. Registration form
  2. Feedback form
  3. Custom Form

The only difference will be how to access the page in order to create these questions.

Registration Form

The standard registration form includes default questions such as name, e-mail address, username, password, role, and company information.

To add new questions, go to Marketing > Registration > Registration form, click the  + Add Question button in the top left corner

Feedback Form

The feedback form will vary depending on which type of survey will be conducted:

  1. Event feedback: Go to Event> Content > Feedback

  1. Activity feedback: Click on Agenda > Feedback and then select an activity

  1. Sponsor feedback: Go to Event > Sponsor, select the Sponsor, at the Details tab scroll down until you see Ask for feedback when leaving, press Edit

Custom Form

To add new questions to custom forms, you need to navigate to Marketing > Registration > Custom Forms> +Add Form. Once you create the form, you will see the +Add question button in the upper left corner.

Editing questions

Answer types

Then, you will need to choose the Answer Type from a list of options using the drop-down box.

  1. Yes or No - The attendee must choose between Yes and No.
  2. Grade from 0 to 5 - The attendee should choose a number from 0 to 5.
  3. Options List - Here the organizer can set several options for the attendee to choose from (not multiple choice). 
  4. Plain Text - Displays a text box for the attendee to reply with a response.
  5. Passport Field - Within the standard international passport structure, the attendee must enter the official ID.
  6. File Upload - The attendee must attach the desired file, requested by the organizer.
  7. Multiple Choice - Here the organizer can set several multiple-choice options.
  8. Date & Time - Here the attendee can choose a date and time from the calendar.
  9. Date - Here the attendee can choose a date from the calendar.
  10. Time - Here the attendee can choose a time from the calendar.
  11. Numeric -  The attendee can only enter numbers in this field, with a limit of 9 digits. If your type of answer requests more than 9 digits, use the answer type Plain text.

If you have selected Multiple Choice as the answer type, and you have added up to 10 options, they will be displayed as checkboxes; from 11 onwards, they will be displayed as a dropdown.
Options List: how to add answer options

When adding an option list as an answer, on the field page click on Edit then select your question. Then, press the bullet point icon (outlined in the image below), and click the blue  Add Multiple Options  button

Required questions

Having a required question means that the attendees will need to answer that question to be able to advance through the form.

To define if a question will be required or not, press the Edit button, click on a question, then tick or untick the checkbox corresponding to Required.

How do I rearrange the order of the questions?

To rearrange the order of the questions, hover your mouse over the squares next to the custom question and drag the squares up or down, to place the questions into order.

How do I create a question with a default answer?

You can configure questions to be prepopulated with default answers.

Select the question you'd like to add the default answer to, press Edit > and select or type in the Default value.

In the example below, the event organizers selected Yes/No as the answer type, so they can define if the default answer should be Yes or No. But if you Select Plain text as the answer type, you will see a field to type in the default value. The default value options will depend on the Answer type selected.

If you have selected Multiple Choice or File Upload as the answer type, you will not be able to create a question with a default answer.

How to use username masks?

When creating new questions of the Plain Text type, you can insert a Username Mask in order to keep the answers under the desired format. 

For example, you can ask for the attendee's birthdate and insert a username mask to make sure the input data follows an MM/DD/YYYY format.
