Form structure

Input groups

Input groups help you organize forms. It can be a name label with an input field.

Form elements

Build your form with the many different form elements available in Ycode:

  • Input groups: To organize your form

  • Label: To give fields a name

  • Submit button: To submit the information that was inserted

Form inputs

For the form input, you've got options as well:

  • Input: For short text data, works with text fields in your database

  • Select: For multiple-choice, works with relationship fields in your database (both reference and multi-reference fields)

  • Text area: For long text, works with text area fields in your database

  • Rich-text editor: To add long-format text, with more control and formatting options

  • Checkbox: To confirm statements, works with True/False fields in your database

  • Radio: To control elements that allow users to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options

  • File upload: To upload files to forms

Form types

To get started with a form go to the Top panel and choose the fourth icon (Form) you can then choose the Form element. You will get a pop-up to select the form type you will be using, currently there are three form options you can select:

  • Data

  • Filter

  • Regular

Let’s say you’ve changed your mind and want a different form type, instead of deleting the one you created you can select the Form and go to the right-hand side, on Settings under the Form section you will have Type, there you will be able to change to a different form type.

Forms work hand-in-hand with workflows, while we will be explaining how each form works on this documentation we also recommend checking workflows documentation for a more in-depth explanation of them.

Tip: You can add as many inputs as you wish to each form, so don’t let the default inputs of each form type constrain you!
