Form fields are the building blocks to your forms. They can be added or removed at any point in time.

When creating a new form, the Title and the Description box will be available by default. If the title is left blank the form will automatically be called 'Untitled'.

There are currently 10 additional fields available in the form builder. This article outlines what the available form fields are and the purpose of each field type.

Types of form fields

Form Field Name

Purpose

User first name

This will automatically populate the field with the first name that is registered in the app.

User last name

This will automatically populate the field with the last name that is registered in the app.

Phone number

The user can type in the phone number and the field will validate the number.

Email

The user can type in the email address and the field will validate the email address.

Short response

This allows the user to freely type in the information that is required.

We recommend using this for one line answers (35 characters or less). For example, to collect the child's first name, last name or full name.

Long response

This allows the user to freely type in the information that is required.

We recommend using this for multi-line responses or answers. For example, if the question is asking to describe something.

Date

The user can select a date from the date selector.

Yes/No

This list provides a yes/no toggle in the form. This toggle automatically defaults to no.

It can also be used to set up 'conditional notifications' so if a user selects yes or no, this submission can go directly to the responsible person.

If this is set as a required field, the field will change to a yes/no dropdown field to prompt the user to select one or the other.

Dropdown

This list can be pre-populated with values for the user to select from.

Any dropdown list can be used to set up 'conditional notifications' so if a user selects a class, this submission can go directly to the applicable teacher.

Payments

Use forms to collect payments. Once a merchant (payment) account with Braintree has been set up and linked in SkoolBag, the payment fields in forms are enabled.

Signature

This field prompts the user to sign the form and collect their signature. The signature will appear on the pdf form.

Use this field where explicit consent or acknowledgement is required.
