Can you explain all of the field types?

Of course. Here’s a summary of all the different field types and some examples of how they can be used:

TEXT FIELDS

Single Line Text

A simple, single line text field.

Examples: Company name, Service name

Multiline Text

This field is made for larger blocks of text.

Examples: Target audience description, Service description

Formatted Text

This allows formatting of text, such as making things bold, underlining, creating headings, etc.

Examples: Target audience description, Service description but with formatting

Email

This is similar to a text field, but it ensures a valid email address is entered. If not, a message is displayed to your client.

URL

This is similar to a text field, but it ensures a valid URL is entered. If not, a message is displayed to your client

IMAGE AND FILE FIELDS

Image(s) Upload

This field allows your client to click on the Upload button and choose an image. Here, you may also enable multiple images and allow them to upload as many as is required for the project.

Examples: Upload your logo, Provide a background image

File(s) Upload

This is similar to an image upload, but allows other types of files.

Examples: Upload your brochure, Upload your terms and conditions, Upload your product disclosure statement

NUMERICAL FIELDS

Number

This field requires a number to be entered from your client and shows an appropriate warning message if they enter text instead.

Examples: How many members staff do you have? How many years have you been trading?

Phone

This field is similar to the number field. However, it makes sure a phone number is entered (international numbers can also be entered). If the client enters a set of numbers that doesn’t constitute a valid phone number, a clear error message is displayed.

Date/Time

This provides a calendar & time popup for your client to select a date & time.

Examples: Event date, Desired campaign start date

OPTIONS FIELDS

Checkbox

This field allows you to provide one or more checkboxes in a group for your client to check/uncheck. They can also be default checked or unchecked.

Examples: Select which options you would like to add in your footer, Choose the desired features of your eCommerce system, Choose the shipping methods you’d like to offer

Radio Button

This field allows your client to choose one option from a group of options with a radio selector.

Examples: Which style header would you like out of these? Choose your favourite blog layout from these options.

Select

This is a drop down selection that allows your client to choose one response.

Examples: Which country are you based in? Which category does your business fall under?

Multi Select

This is a drop down selection within which clients can choose multiple options. Each option chosen is displayed as a tag in the original selection box.

Examples: Which countries constitute your target market? Which social media platforms are you currently using for promotion?

Select Image From List

Here, you can upload multiple images so your client can choose one of them. This is especially useful if you wish to give them a few options for a header image, for example.

Examples: What style header would you like? What kind of blog layout would you like visually? Which image would you like to use for the header of your website?

Select Multiple Images From List

This is very similar to the above, except your client can choose more than one image simply by clicking on them. Each click toggles selection on or off.

Examples: Can you choose your favourite images out of these? Which of these would you like to use as social media profile pictures?

MISCELLANEOUS FIELDS

Button

This field is perfect for collecting the necessary content to create buttons for any website. For the field to be valid, your client must enter their desired button text and link to URL.

Examples: What social media buttons would you like for your website? What would you like your contact button to be called and where would you like it to link to?

Icon Selector

This field allows your client to choose an icon from the many we have available within our library. Here, you may also enable multiple answers and allow them to choose as many as is required for the project.

Examples: Which icon would you like to use to symbolise the comment section of your blog? Which icon would you like to use to symbolise your email address?

Colour Picker

If you’d like your client to select a specific colour, they can do so using the colour picker. Your client can play around and create a custom colour or, if they already have something in mind, they can enter the hex code for that colour and it’ll appear.

Examples: What colour would you like all links to be? What colour would you like to use as the running theme of your blog?
