You want to add a custom registration question (for use with Registration Fees or No-cost Pledge registration page). What do each of the Question & Answer type options mean?
These two fields help specify how a question will be displayed and how it can be answered. We offer a variety of options for how you want the questions to be shown and answered, as below.
Question & Answer Types:
- Yes/No (Boolean): This is for use with questions where you wish to get yes or no responses. Yes/No answers can be returned via a Radio Button or Checkbox.
- Date: This is used when you want a date and/or time format as an answer, ie a common question is "What is your date of birth"? Responses can be formatted for date, time, or datetime which looks like 2015-09-09 02:08 PM.
- Picklist: This type is used when you are specifying a predefined answer list. Users will select one or more of your provided answers. Select means that answers will be selected from a pull-down of options. Multiselect allows users to select multiple answers for a single question.
- Open Field: This question type is used when you want a free form answer from your constituents. Textfield & Textarea answers differ only in that Textarea allows for a greater response area. Use textarea only if you require a statement or large amount of information.
