Special format question types restrict the type of response that a user can enter. This can help with consistency of data for reporting, and can help ensure that you receive responses in the correct format.
An integer question only accepts whole number responses. Letters and symbols are not accepted.
A decimal question accepts values with a specified number of digits after the decimal. You define that number of digits when building the question.
A currency question accepts numbers with commas, decimal points, and a hyphen (in order to make the amount negative). In reports, merge templates, and print packets, responses in currency questions automatically appear in a currency format (e.g. $25,000.00).
A date question accepts a response in the MM/DD/YYYY format, and allows a user to select a date from a calendar picker.
A Url question accepts a response in a valid URL format. Once the URL is entered, you can click the URL icon to visit the website.
- Applicant Tutorial - Link to a Video details the steps for an applicant to link to a video in a Url question.
An email question accepts a response in a valid email format. Once the email is entered, you can click the email icon to start an email (via your default email provider) to the address. Keep in mind that an email sent using this method will not be saved in your site's email history.
