FORM > What types of form fields can I create?

Form fields gather information within processes, forms, and tasks. There are two types: Kick-off forms and blueprint step forms. The former requires information for a process to start. The latter can be incorporated within process steps.

Please remember that all plans can create form fields, but they are read-only on DOCS plans.

Additional form settings include:

Name of field
A label that explains the requirement of the form field.

Guidance text can be an additional description, instructions, or examples to help someone complete the field. It appears next to the name of the field in the task.

Field alias
A field alias is only required if you are using webhooks, so that you can refer to this field for an integration, i.e. passing data automatically from another system to this field.
A field alias is auto-generated, so editing the field alias is not recommended.

Give the assignee options to select from under a certain field.

Required indicates whether the completion of the field is 'optional' or 'required'.
'No' means it will be optional and it can be left incomplete.
'Yes' means it is required and it will need to be completed in order to proceed.

You can easily see if a user does not complete a form field in a completed task:
