The Form Properties Tab




There are many options for forms, accessible through the Form Builder.  When editing an existing form, any changes will be saved in a new form version.  To change form settings, select the desired form, and click Edit Form. If resuming an editing session, the button will read Continue Editing.

Form Properties Tab

The Form Properties tab offers a place to look at all the settings implemented on the form. These may vary depending on your Billing Tier and what Add-Ons your team has.

These settings are controlled in the Form Builder, largely under the Settings tab as described in V2 Form Builder: Form Settings.



This is the description for your form. It is visible beneath the form name in your users' mobile app.


Form Tags


Tags allow your users to filter forms based on certain keywords. To add tags to a form, edit the form.  More information is available in V2 Form Builder: Form Settings.

These tags are visible in the app via Form Details, or by filtering on the tags.
