Basic features

Each question block has basic features to present the block the way you need, for example Name, Description and Help text. And most of the question blocks have common options, like the Required and Exportability options.

More information about these basic features can be found in the help article about our form builder.

Additional features

On top of those basic features, the number block has the following advanced options:

  • Format

    By enabling the Format feature, you can determine how many decimal places your number input may contain.

  • Signs

    By enabling the Signs feature, you can set what signs to use as decimal sign and thousands separator. Please note that in your forms these signs can be overwritten by the respondent's locale settings. In your dataset the selected signs always will be used.
