How to create a survey form and customize it

Last Update: May 7, 2017

Here you have an example using a Matrix and a Page break form for survey forms

Step 1 - Select the Input table (Matrix) field from our Tools panel:

Step 2 - Add a Page Break field,

Step 3 - Add another field from Survey elements such as Scale rating or Star rating:

On this example, I have chosen another Input table (Matrix) form that is positioned after the Page Break. You can improve it by adding Headings fields for each section. You can find it in our Form Tools Menu.

Step 4 - In order to customize the labels, you would need to click on properties, for each form type (Input table, Scale rate, slide, etc))

As shown below:

Step 5 - You can change the input type of your matrix form. In this example, I have chosen the TextBox one.

Step 6 - You can add columns and rows, then customize them. Or, you can add or remove columns to your Survey form later. 

For questions, please let us know below or post it on our support forum.

How do we add an "Other" field to this where someone can fill in their own? For example, rating various applications where not all possible applications are in the matrix

how do i get the individual radio button in a matrix to centre with its label (have the entire column centred) and to have each column spaced out evenly across a row. (eg, one row named "select one" with 7 column choices).

how can I change the dimensions of the matrix, particularly with the column entries? We have statements that the matrix doesn't wrap, but rather extends the column to the end of the statement. The result is a very wide matrix that does not fit into the desired form dimensions.

Hi, i would Like to know how can i customize the matrix column that allows me to fill in my statement on the left and right with the ratings being in the middle so that could allow my respondents to rate on how much they agreed to a certain statement.
For example
[As a student]
(Left)I think that guidance from the teachers are very important for my studies. (Middle) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 (Right)I think that relying on my own study is more important.

Hi, I want to include a matrix with numeric text boxes in my order form. When I type a number in the box of the matrix in the preview (as the drop down doesn't seem to work) the font color of the number is white in both Chrome and Explorer (I can tell the number is there because I can highlight it). How can I change the color of the font in the matrix input boxes? Thanks!!

is there a way to add a textbox field after the row items and before the 1st column while the rest of the options are checkboxes?

for example, in the service quality row / item, a textbox follow next for short comments, then the rating for service quality (very satisfied, satisfied...).
