A TextArea List Field is used when you would like to offer a group of fields. The "TextArea List" field properties may be set once the field is clicked on.
Field Label: This property is the text placed next to the form field that describes the type of data you want visitors to input.
Options: Set the field to be "Required" or “Masked” by clicking the checkbox accordingly.
- Required: Checking this option will force the user to fill out this field. An error message will be displayed if this field is left blank.
- Masked Field: Replaces the field data with asterisks (*) in the submission email. This data will still be viewable in the Data Manager.
Show Field to: Set the field to be “Everyone” or "Admin Only" by selecting that radio button.
Field Size: This property sets the visual size of the field in your form. It does not determine the amount of data that can be collected by the field. Example: 80 for absolute size, 100% for size relative to form width.
Statements: You can edit the Statements/Questions in the text fields and add/delete them by clicking the “+”/”-” icons following. The statements can be displayed in Randomized or Alphabetized order.
- Randomize Statements: the statements will be shown in a random order every time the field is viewed.
- Alphabetize Statements: the statements will be shown in a alphabetical order.
Field Size: This property sets the visual size of the field in your form. It does not determine the amount of data that can be collected by the field. Example: 80 for absolute size, 100% for size relative to form width. Only “cols” supports relative size.
Range: The Range setting limits the amount of data the visitor can input. The range type ‘Characters” represents the number of characters that the field will accept, such as “my” (Characters: 2) and “EmailMeForm” (Characters: 11). The range type ‘Words’ means the value of the inputted words. Email Me Form (3) will not be accepted by a field that the minimum range value is set to one (1).
Field ID: This property is a unique value assigned to a specific field. It can be used in conjunction with dynamic tokens to insert entry data to customize the AutoResponder confirmation message. Note: This value is assigned after a form has been saved.
Once you set the field options, please do not forget to click "Save Form" to save your work.
