Forms: Standard Fields

VNN Playbook - Forms: Standard Fields

Standard Fields are selection fields for parents/students to complete

With all Fields you have the option to make customizations on how they work and how they appear on your site.

Some of the most common customization features used are:

  • The Required checkbox, which means a user is required to fill out that portion of the form in order to submit it.
  • The Field Label, which allows you to form your question
  • The Field Size
  • The Conditional Logic field, which is explained here!
