  1. Type the name (or label) for your form input e.g. What’s your Relationship to us?
  2. Add a Hint. This is just some text to help guide the user to complete this particular form input. e.g. Choose one or more options
  3. Then select the input type. Choose between Text or Checkbox styles.
    If you choose Checkbox, you’ll be asked to add the Checkbox Options. These should be entered in alphanumeric order (ideally), as a comma separated list, with no space before the comma.
  4. Then click Save.

Repeat steps 6 to 10 for each input field in your form.

Next step - using the form for registration

Once the form has been created, complete with input fields, you will need to add it to the registration workflow in your account settings.

  1. Navigate to Settings > General
  2. Scroll down to the section title Registration form
  3. Select your new form
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Save button.

All done, your new form will appear in the Registration workflow for new users, AND in the My Profile page for all users, whenever they click Edit in their Profile page.

Editing the form

You can also add or remove input fields and options at any time. However note that changes made after users has already registered may impact historical data and existing users.

So it’s best to set up your form as early as possible.

Happy branding :)
