What Are Custom Fields?

Organizing Custom Fields

In this section, you have the capability to generate your own custom fields. Custom fields serve a crucial role in forms and surveys, capturing unique data and information that goes beyond the boundaries of standard inquiries such as “Name, Email, and Phone Number”. They allow for more personalized and targeted data collection, enabling you to gather insights that are specifically relevant to your business needs. Whether you need to know a respondent’s job title, their favorite product from your line, or any other piece of information that isn’t typically requested, custom fields provide the flexibility to tailor your data collection tools to your specific requirements.
