Before I begin to tell you about this new feature, I think this one deserves a drum roll. Without further ado….

 

drumroll

 

Our contact info question is now available!
 

Many (many!) of you have been waiting for this feature, and you can all sleep well at night knowing that it’s possible to ask for contact information in the same question

 

This feature doesn’t need much explaining, so I’ll dive right into explaining how to add this block to your form in the video below: 

 

 

To use this question: 

 

  1. Search or select the question by clicking the + button on the upper left corner of the builder.

  1. Next, choose which questions you would like to appear and which you’d like to be marked required.

  1. Finally, be sure to publish your typeform so the changes are live!

Thank you for the great addition! 

 

Could you please also add the Question for Data Privacy to the contact info?

 

Otherwise we need (at least in Germany) still to ask one more Question

@Liz  GREAT idea. Question: you know how facebook ads forms have “auto fill” the form. It would be great if both: this can be used on FB itself [and all major social media too ] and it autofill - and - importantly even as one uses this with clients, if there are several (or one) auto-fill option, because let’s face it - most people do Not want to tediously fill in forms [and may bounce]. [3] Also another extra option is if they can press a button (e.g. google log in or FB login and/or linkedin Login , etc - so it another way to grab info perhaps?!) ideas! Thanks!

@btech Our product team said this is on their radar to add! No projected date (so it could be a while), but know it’s coming!

@Brain Yeah, that’s a great point! I’ll share this too. 😀

I may be losing my mind, but I saw the option for contact Info yesterday, and now it’s suddenly gone? 

Am I missing something? 

 

 

Not seeing the option for new Contact Info question.

I’m in Australia.

Am I going crazy?!

Could there also be a tickbox or yes/no added for ‘would you like to receive our monthly newsletter’ etc

Hi @Graham Cox and @Mark_SIBO are you still missing the contact info field? 

I don’t see a way to make “contact info” a required question in my survey. Is this intentional? 

 

Edit - found it!

@zoeshank - i think the field level requirement exists (see the image below - the ‘asterisks’ on the right side) but not at the question level

if you make one of the fields (at minimum) required, the question becomes ‘required’

Hi @Graham Cox and @Mark_SIBO are you still missing the contact info field? 

No, I can see it and just set it up on a quiz. Looks great. Thanks

We had started evaluating other forms, as collecting the contact info was so tedious with Typeform. This is a game changer and we will continue to use Typeform. So happy to see this new feature! Now if only we could get an “Address” block….
