How to use

Add a new block to your form and then select the question type Text (single line). You can now customize this block to your needs with the following features.

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 text (single line) block has the following advanced options:

  • Character count

    By enabling the Character count feature, you can control the amount of characters your respondents can enter.

  • Autocomplete

    By enabling the Autocomplete feature, you can use the autocomplete functionality of the respondent's browser to help the respondent to fill out the form as quickly as possible. You can select which autocomplete value you'd like to insert, like the name or address of the respondent.

  • Transform

    By enabling the Transform feature, you can determine how the answered text should be transformed. For example you can capitalize certain parts of the answer, or convert all characters to lowercase/uppercase.
