Build Your Form
The form builder allows you to add and edit questions on the left and preview the form on the right. To add questions, first select what type of question you want to add (e.g. Number, Test, Picture, Single Select, Multi Select, etc). The question will appear in the preview page on the right and the question options to be edited will appear on the left. Click to learn more about the different question types and question options available through the Form Builder
Once you are done adding your questions and editing the question options click Save at the top right and then click Back to go back to the default Forms List. Lastly you'll need to Assign the Form to Stores and/or Accounts in order for the Form to appear accordingly on the Shelvspace Mobile App.
Edit a Form
To edit an existing form:
- Click Forms from the menu on the left
- Click Form Details to the left of the form you want to edit
- At the top left of the Form Details Page click on Edit Form. This will take you to the Form Builder. Note there are editing restrictions placed when a form has been assigned out to stores (see below).
In order to keep the integrity of the data, the are some changes that are blocked from making after you have assigned out a Form to Stores and/or HQ Accounts.
- Not Allowed: Adding, removing, rearranging questions
- Allowed: Everything else including question details, advanced options, wording changes, etc
If you do need to make restricted changes you can duplicate the form, make the changes, and reassign out to the same stores. Ensure you deactivate the old form so only the new form appears on the mobile app.
