Question types

What are Question types?

You create your serviceflow out of question types. You can find a list of question types on the serviceflow editor. 

Below are the list of question types that you can use to create your serviceform. You can also find a short description of each screen next to the image.

Yes/No

The Yes/No element by default allows only one answer selection - either 'yes' or 'no'. After selecting the Yes/No element, you can add more answers through 'Add option' and edit them to give users more choices to choose from.

Short text

A Short text element provides space for an answer of a single line. It helps you validate a response in an expected format, for example, a phone number, date of birth, etc. You can also choose the character limit from 0-255 characters.

Long text

A Long text element is perfect if you want people to write long answers. You can choose a character limit and if you don't wish to have a character limit, answers can be unlimited in length as people want.

Email

The Email element provides a text field to only accept email addresses in the correct format. This allows you to validate if it is an email address. If someone filling the form tries to add text in a different format, they will be asked to enter it in again.

Website

The Website element allows you to collect websites or any other links from your respondents.

Price

You can add prices to certain elements you create. We have enabled dynamic pricing and it means that you can ask multiple questions with multiple options with various prices. And based on the different options your user selects until the completion of the serviceform, they will the final total amount that needs to be paid according to what they have selected.

Payment

Through Serviceform you can charge your users or customers for the products and services you sell and also accept charity donations if you run a not-for-profit organization. We provide dynamic pricing with certain elements, and once you are done listing the prices for your services, you can add a payment screen to add up the total amount and charge your user or customer. We use a payment gateway called Stripe, that allows you to take payments safely and securely.
