  • Single-step/ Multi-step forms: Choose whether you want to display your questions on a single page or each question at a time.
  • Variable field: Add a variable field to store different data types like integer, text, decimal, or formula. You can then use the variables in your mathematical calculations or logical conditions.

This allows you to create multiple success pages tailored to different scenarios. Additionally, you can include links in success messages, enabling respondents to be redirected to other pages or forms upon completion.
