How can I share access to my formaloos?
To manage access on your formaloo, right-click on it and select “Access Management”. In the opened pop-up you can select the access level and email address of your team member to share the access of that formaloo with.
How can I use folders to organize my formaloos and share access on folders?
Folders help you organize and categorize your formaloos. On the Formaloo dashboard, click on the “Create new folder” button, add a title for your folder and click “Create”. Your folder will be created and visible on your dashboard.
To manage access to your folder, right-click on it and select “Access Management”. In the opened pop-up you can select the access level and email address of your team member to share the access of that folder with.
Remember, your team member should have an account on Formaloo before you share access on formaloos and folders with them.
How to add new pages to my single-page formaloos?
Multi-page forms help you show each question on a new page. But to have power over when you want to add a new page, the “Page break” field will help. Whenever you need a new page, just drop the page break field into your formaloo canvas.
Remember, the “page break” field is only available in single-page forms. So if you don’t find it in the list of fields, maybe it’s a good idea to go to the design tab and make sure that your form is single-page.
Can I use Formaloo without an internet connection?
You can submit formaloos in the Formaloo Android application without an internet connection. All data will be synced when you get back online.
To do so, in the Android application go to Home, then click on the menu beside your form and select “View (Application)”. This will open your form inside the application and you can submit it even when you’re not connected to the internet. Everything will be saved on your form as soon as you’re back online.
How can I copy a form?
In your Workspace, there is a menu beside each form. Open the menu and select “Duplicate” to copy that form.
Can I build conditions or “skip logic” into a form?
At Formaloo, conditions are called Logic. Formaloo offers both simple and advanced logic designers. You can create your full workflow with Formaloo. Using Logic you can add conditions (if/else and loop) on both your single-page and multi-page formaloos. Check out this article and video explaining how to use it:
How to redirect users to different URLs using logic?
Edit your formaloo and click on the logic tab. It will open the Logic page for you. There, add a new condition on your question and select “after submit go to a link” and then insert your link.
Can I pre-populate fields?
Yes! You can pre-populate form questions or statements with some data using Hidden Fields and Lookup Fields, which you can find out about here:
What are Admin-Only fields and how can I use them?
Admin-Only fields are for the benefit of you as the admin of formaloos. You can use them to add notes and extra information on each respondent row. This information will only be visible to formaloo admins and the users won’t see them.
For example, on an employee engagement formaloo, your HR team can add notes on each employee without having to submit a separate formaloo.
I made changes to my form questions or settings, but my form doesn’t show them!
Make sure to hit Save after making any edits to your form, so that the updates are transferred to the live version of the form. If you’re already using the form link on another site, you won’t have to replace it for the updates to show.
You also need to save your form when editing form settings. Otherwise, the new settings won’t affect people responding to your form.
My form is skipping questions / The questions I created aren’t showing up in my published form!
This may be because of how your form’s Logic is set up.
Double-check any rules you’ve created to confirm that you aren’t accidentally skipping questions, and use your Logic Map as a handy reference to make sure your respondents are being sent down the right question paths.
You can also check out this article and video to see how logic works on Formaloo:
Why can’t I see the responses to my form?
If you’re seeing a “Waiting for approval” message, it’s because some formaloos may need to be approved by Formaloo. This process should take less than 10 minutes. In case your form hasn’t been approved for more than that, let Formaloo support know via the support chat on the website or via email.
My form shows this message “The form you requested has been either deactivated by its creator or can not be found. Please make sure you have the right address.”
This message means you’ve deactivated your form. To make it active again, from the Formaloo dashboard edit your form, then in the General Settings tab, activate your form. You can deactivate or close your form again using this setting.
Can I have my form active only for a duration of time?
Yes. You can set an expiry time on your form. To do so, from the Formaloo dashboard edit your form. Then in the General Settings tab, edit the “Active from” and “Active to” dates or just delete their value to remove the time limit on your form. If someone tries to open your form outside that timeline, they’ll see this message: “The form has been expired by the owner”.
What are response limits or submit limits?
If your form shows this message: “Form has reached its submit limit!”, it’s because you’ve set a limit for the maximum number of responses on your form. To increase this limit or remove it, from the Formaloo dashboard edit your form, then in the General Settings tab, increase the max number of submits or just delete the number to remove the limit.
How can I identify my respondents?
In order to identify your respondents you need to either:
- Ask a person for the name, email address, or other identification directly in your form. Do this with an Email or Short text question.
- If you already have your respondent’s information in your database you can pass the name, email, ID or all of these via Hidden Fields in the URL of the form. This way, the information will appear in your Results along with answers to the questions. Not only that, you can feed this info into your form and make it more personal.
You can view and manage all your respondents in the Formaloo CDP dashboard on the “Customers” page. There you can segment your audience using tags, add notes to each, and view all of their information and activities.
Can I get an email every time my form gets a new response? Can I send form respondents their answers?
Of course! On the Formaloo CDP dashboard edit your form, then open the “Notifications” tab.
To send respondents their answers, you need at least one “Email” field in your form so that the answers can be sent to the email address they’ve submitted in the form. You can’t turn on this option if you don’t have any “Email” field on your form.
To receive an email every time the form gets a new response, go in the “Notifications” tab, turn on the “Send me a notification email for each response” toggle and then enter your email address.
How can I get my form responses and results?
Log in to your account, and click on the form or open the form’s menu and select “View responses”. In the “Charts” tab and the “Responses” tab, you can see the list of all responses and charts that visualize your collected data.
You can download all responses in a spreadsheet or export them to Google Sheets using the buttons under the table of responses.
How can I make sure respondents only answer my form once?
You can use a “Phone” field and in the settings of it turn on the “Unique” option. It will make sure each phone number submitted on your form is unique.
Also, you can embed the form on a page with cookies that don’t allow the respondent to view the form more than once (this option will require someone with coding skills on your side).
How do I edit submitted responses?
In the Formaloo dashboard click on the form or open the form’s menu and select “View responses”. In the “Responses” tab, you can see the list of all responses. Click on the “Details” button on each row to see the full response. On this page, you can edit the response.
How do I embed my form on my website or emails?
In the Formaloo dashboard click on the form or open the form’s menu and select “View responses”. Then go to the “Share” tab and select one of the options to share your form. To embed your form on your website, you can use the “iframe”, “script”, or “widget” options.
Select one and click on the “Get code” button. There you can copy the code and paste it to your website. It will embed the form into your website.
