Adding a Yes/No 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.

Yes/No questions are actually an ‘either or’ option, meaning that the word you use for yes and no doesn’t have to be ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ it can be any two values you want your applicant to choose from, like ‘meat’ or ‘veggie’ or ‘boy’ or ‘girl’, etc.

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 “Yes / No” 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 the question text, whether it is mandatory or not, what the options are, the description, and if it is an admin field or not.

Yes/No questions are great for gathering an A or B type of question, like adding a second emergency contact or not, if the participant is over or under eighteen years old, or if they would like to refer someone.

You can change the field title by changing the “Label”. There are different font sizes and color choices available.

You can decide if the field should be mandatory or not by clicking “On” or “Off”.

You can change the default value of ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ to something else.

You are also 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.
