The form builder’s toolbox contains all the various data field types a Array form can hold. In this article, we provide a brief explanation of the various options and how they function.
The Toolbox appears down the right hand side in the form builder.
The Text Elements options are very straightforward. If you’d like to capture a responder’s name, email, company, or phone number, simply drag and drop the corresponding field onto your form. Additionally, you can use the signature option to allow a responder to add a handwritten signature to the form.
At the bottom of the Text Element menu, you’ll see a “Data Search” field. This field allows you to populate a form with information found in the Array database, in an external CSV, or in a third-party application. For more information on data search here.
Use options from the Media & More menu to allow responders to attach photos, videos, audio files, or documents to your Array form. You can also generate barcodes and QR codes from this menu.
The Lists / Sliders options are great for letting form responders compare multiple pieces of data.
