Ratings Input Field in Forms

With Forms, you can add a Ratings input field to your form. The Rating field comes with a few default settings for the ease of users. But these default settings can be customized as well.

The Ratings input field in Forms is designed in five hierarchy orders by default Nice, Good, Very Good, Awesome, Amazing, etc. If you want to add more, you can do such. You can easily add a Ratings field in your form. This will add interactivity to your form.

  • To add this field to your form, drag and drop the Ratings field from the available Advanced input fields.
  • To enable customization, click on the edit icon you get when hovering over the field. Or click on the Input Customization tab in the right sidebar when the field is selected.

In the Input Customization section, you can customize the Ratings input field in the following ways. In this section, you will find 2 portions:

  1. Basic Options
  2. Advanced Fields

Basic Options #

On the right side of the tab, there are some important Basic options which are given below:

  • Element Label: This is the text that users will see on the form for the Ratings input field. You can put any text here that helps to understand the purpose of that field.
  • Label Placement: Determine the placement of the label, that you set previously, with respect to the input field. The available options are ‘Top’, ‘Left’, ‘Right’, and ‘Default’. All of those are self-explanatory except the ‘Default’. What it means is, that it will represent your global label placement settings.
  • Admin Field Label: If you want to show a different label for your admin users when they view the form submissions you can configure that. It doesn’t have any actual effect on the form rather only for administrative purposes.
  • Options: Add/Remove/Edit the rating options here.
    – Checkmark any one of them to be the default option.
    – The rating options can be renamed as well.
    – Drag & Drop the options by grabbing the markers to rearrange them.

The Advanced options available for the Ratings input field are as follows:

  • Help Message: To guide your user thoroughly you can use this option. Just add your text here and it will be shown as a help message to the user.
