Understanding the element options

Each element of your form has a number of possible settings: featuresvisibilityadvanced options, display options and help.

The options that will be detailed in this tutorial are to be set in each element that makes up your form.

You can do it by clicking on the pencil icon next to the various elements.

General properties

Under the Features tab, you will find various options relating to the specific element:

  • Title: Rename the element. In the app, this will be the name that you will give it. For example, an entry field can be renamed “Project name”.
  • Required entry: By checking this box, during form entry, you make the entry element required. The user must fill in the entry in order to save the form.
  • Default value: You can specify a default value if you do not manually fill in this field. You will also find “default text”.
  • Type with a list of style proposals: “text, digital integer, digital decimal, phone number, email, address web site.” Select the response that corresponds to the function of your field.

      Hello Bart,

      Thank you for your getting in touch with us. We did receive your private message. Indeed, with this specific device that are using (Samsung Chromebook Pro) the “tab” key is not working. We are working to correct that issue very soon.

      Have a great day!

      Regards,
