    How versatile is your product?

    Asked by Ken  on February 15, 2017 at 01:45 PM

    I'm looking for a type of form builder that is a bit more "profile"-oriented than form-oriented.  Meaning that I can put in 1000 questions or instances of query into a pool, and then determine that I need profiles A-Z, and when I go into profile F, I can pull in questions/instances 1-50, #77, #89-123, and #999.  Then into profile P and do #51-100, #974, and #1000.  The into profile Z and see that it already has a series of questions/instances tied to it, but I need to add a new question to it, say #777, and save it and update it with the new question inserted.  Also, being able to manipulate the order based off where I say the order should be (so question 777 is a higher question number, but say I need it to appear between #2 and #3).  And then if I need to change question 777 to something else, that change cascades over all profiles, updating them with the new 777, so I don't have to change each one, like with a glorified copy/paste tool?


    Also, the capabilities to update either data regarding the form, or information on the form from some sort of API integration.


    Does your product offer this type of versatility and functionality?

    If you want to show only specific question on your form then you will have to use conditional logic and show/hide fields based on selected option:

    More about conditional logic you can find inside of this guide:
