Form settings

One Question at a Time - See example

This form format lets you focus your attention on one question at a time in the centre of the screen. After answering a question, you can scroll or click the OK button to progress to the next question.

Progress bar

When the One Question at a Time format is turned on, the progress bar is automatically turned on. Percent progress bar is shown by default.

Percent – shows progress as a percentage (e.g. 25% completed)

Proportion – shows progress in terms of the number of questions answered (e.g. 5 of 10 answered)

Individual – shows which question number is completed (e.g. highlights only the question number which are completed)

Note – For all questions on one page and forms with display logic – no progress bar is shown.


Design – Logo, Colour theme and Background image

Logo - You can add a logo to a form if you have a Gold plan.

Colour theme – You can change the appearance of your form by changing the colour of question text, description and buttons.

Background image – You can upload your own background image or GIF or select an image from our gallery. Recommended Background image dimensions: 1680x1050 px.


Skip logic

Skip logic lets you direct respondents through different paths in a form based on their answer to a previous question.



Form pre-population works by substituting tokens placed in a form.

Tokens can be added to almost any part of a form, including question, description, default value etc.

Most popular is “Default value” in the input field of Text Entry question type.

To add a token, simply surround a word with {{ and }}, for example: {{Firstname}}.


Email Notifications (including response PDF)

Email notifications let you quickly see new form responses by sending an email each time a response is submitted.

You can send email notifications to:

  • Author

  • Registered Respondent

  • Any other email address (not registered in Formly)

  • Email address entered while completing the form


Duplicate, Delete or Rename Form

You can duplicate, delete or rename form in the main dashboard.
