Understanding and using the Choice element

The “choice” element enables the app users with a direct preview of a list on their mobile device. This is very useful for surveys, questionnaires and short choice lists. A Choice list may be single, multiple or ranked.

For example: being the owner of a cinema, you want to improve your establishment in order to better respond to the expectations of your customers and so you conduct a survey. You want to know among other things the gender of your customers, propose possible improvements with a list and know the favourite film genres of your customers.

In the back office.

  • Go to the platform kizeoforms.com in Modify or Create a form.
  • Click on the Choice
  • To access its features, go to the Options of the element by clicking on the pencil.
