A Scale Rating Field is used when you want your users to scale their answers by selecting different numbers from a range (worst to best). The "Scale Rating" 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", “Masked”, or “Allow Other” 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.
- Allow Other: Check this option if you would like the last choice in your multiple choice field to have a text field for additional input.
Show Field to: Set the field to be “Everyone” or "Admin Only" by selecting that radio button.
Scale Amount: This setting is the option amount shown.
“Worst” Text: Text shown on the left of the options.
“Best” Text: Text shown on the right of the options.
Cell Align: You can select the field to be left, center, or right aligned by selecting from the “Cell Align” drop-down.
Instructions for User: This is an optional property that displays the text specified to your users while they’re filling out that particular field. These instructions appear below the field input box.
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.
