Adding a Single Checkbox Field

Regpack gives you the ability to ask a variety of different question types in your forms, so you can gather the information you need, in the format you need it.

A single checkbox field is a great way to gather agreement to your question, like “I would like to receive your newsletter,” “I agree to the privacy policy,” or “I am older than eighteen years of age.”

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

Next, hover over the form you’d like to add a long answer field to, and click “Edit Form Fields.”

Once in your desired form, click the “Single Checkbox” field option and either add it to the top or bottom, or simply drag it into place.

Once the field is in your form, you can make alterations to whether it is mandatory or not, what the agreement option is, the description, and if it is an admin field or not.

The single checkbox field is generally used for questions that require one confirmation.

There is no label section for the single checkbox field, only a single option entry you can edit.

You will also need to decide if the field should be mandatory or not by clicking “On” or “Off”.

You are able to add a description, which will appear as a sub-text underneath the field. It is generally used to give the applicant more information about what you are asking, which should make for a smoother registration experience for your applicants!

You can also make the field an Admin Only field, which hides it from your applicants on the front end. It only becomes visible to your admins in the back end. Basically, it is an internal field that only your team will answer and use.

Remember to save all your choices, when you are done! Then test it to make sure it’s displaying the way you want it to.
