Field Types | Overview - Zoho Forms

Overview

To get the right data from your respondents, you need to choose the appropriate form fields based on the details that you wish to collect. Zoho Forms provides a variety of form fields ranging from simple text boxes to complex formula fields. You can collect payments in your order forms, perform calculations, assign a unique ID to each form entry received, and do much more using the various fields available.
You can choose to keep certain form fields to be mandatory for the respondents to fill, accept unique responses from your respondents, hide or disable certain fields, and more.
 
The fields in Zoho Forms are broadly categorized into:
  1. Basic Fields: Fields that you will need in your form to collect basic information from your respondents.
  2. Advanced Fields: Complex fields that help you perform calculations, collect payments, capture digital signatures, and more in your form. 

You can change certain default properties of the fields added to your form under the Properties of each field.
