Creating a New Form
From inside your application, choose Web Forms from the menubar on the left. The menu can be expanded and collapsed by clicking anywhere along the orange bar.
Then click the orange Create Web Form button and select Form from the list of Web Form options as shown below. You can then decide whether you'd like to start from scratch (Create New) or use on of our pre-built templates (Use a Template).
Next, you can give your new form a name and description by clicking on the title box to expand it. You also have the option to allow users to save their partial form and return to complete it at a later date.
Below the name and description area, you'll find the list of fields for your form. If you're starting from scratch, there will be one field already created for you. If you're working from a template, there will be multiple fields created.
You can select from a variety of field and question types by clicking on the drop-down menu.
To learn more about each specific question and field type, consult our Question Field Guide for details.
You can quickly group your form fields into sections by selecting New Section from the + menu below your fields. Sections will act as pages, showing multiple fields at one time before the use moves onto the next section.
Once you have added sections, you can name them by clicking anywhere on the blue section header. You may then reorder and group your fields by dragging the arrow icon.
You can also add text or instructions in between any two fields by clicking the + icon and selecting New Text
Then, type in the text you'd like to display.
After your respondent has completed your form, they will be taken to a blank page. If you'd like to add a custom end page, click the + icon after your last form field, then choose Add End Page.
You may then add a custom title, message and URL to link to if you'd like.
All Qrvey web forms can be customized to fit the look and feel of your brand. To learn more about customization and in-context embedding options, please read our Customizing Web Forms article.
