As you are creating a form, you may find you need to limit the answers you receive to a question. You can add a select group to that question for visitors to use when they are answering. A select group limits answers to only those you've provided, such as Yes/No.

Adding a Select Group 

You can add a Select Group to a question in two places:

  • From the Online Forms page: click the Select Groups icon at the top of the page, then click the Add a Select Group icon.
  • From the Adding a Question to an online form section: as you create one of the question types that use select groups, you can add the select group to the question.

Adding a Select Group from the Online Forms page

  1. Go to Features > Online Forms.
  2. Click the Select Groups icon at the top of that screen.

  3. Click the Add a Select Group icon.
  4. Name your select group. Example: House Type
  5. Enter the Options you would like a user to choose from. Example: House, Condo, Apartment. 

NOTE: Be sure to enter each option on its own line.

 

  1. Click Alphabetize the list before saving if you would like to have the select groups display in alphabetical order. Example: Apartment, Condo, House.
  2. Click Save Select Group.
