Introduction to form blocks

WordFly RSVP and Survey Pages use form blocks to collect and submit responses. There are required form blocks that are needed for submitting the form and cannot be removed from the page. And there are additional form blocks for collecting information from respondents.

 

 

 

Required form blocks

  • RSVP Yes and No block: Required for RSVP Pages, for either a yes or no response.
  • RSVP and Survey submit block: Required for submitting RSVP and Survey Pages in order to collect Page Results.

 

Additional form blocks

Other form blocks for collecting data are:

  • Radio
  • Checkbox
  • Dropdown
  • Survey
  • Text area
  • Text field

 

What to expect with Pages form blocks:

  • The RSVP and Survey Page can have unlimited form blocks added to the design. Add checkboxes, radials, dropdowns, and open text areas.
  • Any form block can be marked as required. When marked, the respondent must complete the form before submitting the page.
  • All form block have an +Additional Note field for adding a note below the Question field.
  • Modify design styles from the STYLESHEET > General Styles or All Blocks to carry styles through the whole Page Set.

 

 

 

Submit form blocks

 

RSVP and Survey pages contain required blocks for submitting responses. These blocks cannot be deleted.

 

 

 

Move the blocks to a new location if needed and use styles to customize the design. If you move the required blocks into another container (such as a two-column or other structural block), that container cannot be deleted. Move the required blocks out of the container to be able to delete the container.

What is reCaptcha

RSVP and Survey Pages both have captcha blocks. reCaptcha is a service from Google that helps protect our Pages from spam and abuse. The captcha form will ask the user more questions the more suspicious it is.

 

 

 

Radio form block

Radio form blocks let you set up a list of choices where there is only one answer to select. The choices are exclusive; when a radio button is selected, any previously selected radio button becomes deselected.
 

In the open Answers field where you see "option 1, option 2, option 3", you can edit these options to your selections and add new options by hitting enter (return) on your keyboard to type in the next option.

 

You can display radio options in 2- or 3-columns using the checkbox options on the left side.

Survey form block

Survey form blocks are set to 5 answers by default. Use the Add button to add up to 6 more options. Toggle answer formats to Disagree-Agree or 1-5. Use the Box style checkbox to change from a radial to a box format. Edit the answer fields to your desired information by typing in anything else you prefer. You must include a label for each answer option in order for Page Results to collect appropriately. Respondents may select only one answer. 

 

Keep in mind:

  • Net Promoter score uses a scale of 0-10. Use the Add button to add up to 11 options.
  • Consider how your survey block will display on mobile. More then 5 answers on mobile will be a tight fit!

 

Are you not seeing the Add button and Box Style? You might need to update your Page code.

 

 

Text area form block

Text area form blocks have a maxlength setting. Set this to the highest character length you will allow. Each character is equal to 1. For example, if you allow 250 characters this includes any spaces and punctuation.

 

 

 

Text field form block

Text field form blocks collect different types of data that must be typed into the open text field. Data includes dates, email, number, phone, text, time or a URL. Each field has it's own built-in validation. Set a field to required or not. (Optional) On select fields write a regular expression for the data validation.

 

Select from 7 text field types:

  • Date: Show a date picker. Use-case, collect a birthday date.
  • Email: Collect an email address.
  • Number: Open text field for a number value.
  • Phone: Open text field for a phone number. Use-case, collect a home or mobile contact number.
  • Text: Collect text. Use-case, best for short text. Use a Text area form block for longer areas of text.
  • Time: Show a time picker. Use-case, collect the best time for a follow up call.
  • URL: Collect a URL.

 

Date and time text field form blocks aren't supported everywhere and will display as open text fields in these cases. Use maxlength to set a limit on how much text can be added and use placeholder or question text to show the format requested. For example, if asking for a date, show a preferred date format as the placeholder text (Ex, mm/dd/yyyy). If you want to collect a date that is just a month, use Text Field Form > Type > Text. Enter Month in the Placeholder field and set a maxlength.

 

Regular Expression Patterns

(Optional) You can write a regular expression pattern to ensure accuracy for some of the fields. Example, write a regular expression for email type to check that the email contains a valid top-level domain and no spaces in the address portion. Or, write a regular expression to make sure a phone number contains dashes.

 

Maxlength

Set maxlength to the highest character length you will allow a user to input. Each character is equal to 1. For example, if you allow 250 characters this includes any spaces and punctuation.
