Short Answer Field


Regpack allows you to use a variety of different fields on all of your forms. When building out your forms, choosing the right field is important! One option is a short answer field, which allows you to ask a question that requires a small amount of free text as a response. It’s also great for discount codes. Below you will see the steps to adding a short answer field to your form!


First, navigate to your forms by going to Settings –> Forms.

The short answer field is generally used for questions that require quick responses (e.g. first name, last name, city, etc). Change the title by clicking the title section (some html components can be used to alter the title)

Add a description to the field for extra directions (some html components can be used to alter the description)



Change the field status from mandatory to optional or back by clicking the asterisk. (Red = Mandatory)



Add additional settings to the field or delete it by clicking “Options”. (Change styling will give you different types of ways to display the field. Copy field duplicates an entire field. Hide field from users will hide the field on the front end of the system. Add field to filter options will allow you to filter for specific/similar text entries. All admin will still be able to view hidden fields)



Click “Change” next to the Short Answer title will give you the option of switching this field into another type of Input fields.



Click “That’s it” once you’re done with edits to save
