Below are the names and icons of each tool in Submittable's form builder. Our form builder contains designs and features intended to expand your form building capabilities. For those of you familiar with our previous form builder, you'll notice that some form fields names have changed. Text Box and Text Area are now called Short Answer and Long Answer. Checkbox Lists are called Multiple Response, and Radio Lists are called Single Response. The Text Block field is now called Text Only.
Name - Provides 2 entry boxes for a first and last name.
Address - Provides entry boxes for address collection. Before adding this field, you'll want to be aware of the Require Address feature, a setting in your organization's account area that, when activated, auto-collects address information from submitters prior to them filling out any applications.
Short Answer - Provides a one line text box for short typed responses.
Long Answer - Provides a larger text box for long typed responses.
Dropdown List - Creates a list of response choices of any length that is viewed as a dropdown when clicked. The dropdown list helps save space in your form.
Single Checkbox - Provides a single checkbox accompanied with a textual statement. This form field is often used for something to ask submitter's to acknowledge a stated condition by checking the box.
Multiple Response - Allows the creation of a list of choices, from which an applicant or submitter can choose one or more of the answers provided.
Single Response - Enables the creation of a list of choices, from which an applicant or submitter can choose only ONE of the answers provided.

Table - Upload a responsive spreadsheet that can be filled in when a form is live.
Number - Request a response that is restricted to a plain, pre-formatted number. This field helps keep numbers consistent, which ensures accurate, trouble-free data reporting. The default for this field is a plain number validation, which can be negative and/or include decimals. You can choose to collect numbers as a percentage or a currency amount, which will show the corresponding symbol in the live application and in completed forms. You can also set the number tool to represent a wide selection of world currencies, as well as set minimum and maximum number entry parameters.
