Form field reference

To add a new field to your form, open up the form builder and click into any of the empty placeholders on your form. From the Add field menu, you can select form field types from three main categories:

Input

Most field types are input fields, which collect information from the person filling out your form. Not sure where to start? Check out our help topic to learn how to choose the right input field type.

Layout

Layout fields affect the format and organization of fields on your forms. For example, you can use repeating sections or tables to allow people to add duplicate groups of fields as necessary, a Section to visually group fields into a container, or a page break to split forms into multiple pages.

Advanced

Advanced field types include the File Upload field, which gives people to upload files (such as PDFs and images) along with their form submission, as well as the Calculation field, which displays read-only values based on a calculation which may include values from other fields on the form.
