Form blocks guide - Which question type to use

Use this guide to determine the right question type for each question in your form.


About form blocks

In Tripetto you build your form structure with form blocks. For each form block you can select the question type. This determines how the respondent can enter the answer to that question, for example by typing an answer, or by selecting an option from a list of options you provide them.

You can see an overview of all question types Tripetto offers via the following link:

Depending on the question type you have selected for each block, you can configure that block exactly like you want. Click on a question type in the guide below to see all options and settings per question type.
