    Hi,

     

    You can insert a Text field on your form so you can add comments in the questionnaire.

    1. On your form builder, select Form Tools then click on Text

    2. Once a Text field has been added, click the Edit HTML button

    3. Type your message then click Complete once you are done editing

    Here's how it would appear in the Preview

     

    Or if you want a comment to appear when a user hovers on a field, just add a Hover Text to that specific field.

    Click on the field > Click on Hover Text > Insert comment > Click OK

    This is how it would appear when a user hovers on a field

     

     

    Do inform us if you need further assistance,
    Regards.

    If you would like to show a specific static text or comment based on a user input (like an answer to a check box), then that is possible by using conditional logic. You can learn more about it in this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic 

    Here's a sample form: https://form.jotform.com/60173288098968. Here's how I did mine:

    1. First, I added a radio button field so that user can only have 1 item to be selected. I'll insert a "Text" field for the comment or description. 

    2. In your "Conditions" wizard, choose "SHOW/HIDE FIELD".

    3. Here's how my condition works, when "Show comment?" radio button is equal to "Yes" then SHOW the static text related to comments or descriptions.

     

     

    I hope that helps. Do let us know if you need more information on this.

    Hello Charlie,

     

    I'm still having troubles inserting the comment on a user input. It was successfully done in one of the demo's that I didn't before doing it on the real form.... however I'm not successful in implementing it into my real form.

    Hi,

     

    Are you referring to the form Introductory Questionnaire Sheet? I cloned the form and checked the conditions. It looks like this field successfully displays an add comment field when the user ticks Yes.

    Are you referring to another form perhaps? Do inform us so we can assist you better.

     

    Cheers.

    Hi,

    In this particular form I have added in a comment into that field, as I couldn't get a comment that was invisible. I have tried manually without the added field however, when i wanted to preview my form the question doesn't seem to appear. What should i do?

    Hi,

     

    Your form seems to have errors in the conditions which might be why the conditions are not working as it should. Please remove the errors from the conditions and try adding the condition again.

    You also need to hide the fields first so that when a user clicks on Yes, the condition would then make the comment field visible.

     

    Do inform us if you need further assistance,
    Regards.
