Form Designer Update: a new way of adding questions to your forms

May 20, 2013

We’re pleased to announce a change to the Form Designer that we think will make creating forms easier for you.
To add a question to your form, you used to choose from a dropdown the desired question type and clicking the “Add” button.
Now, you can add a question from a button toolbar at the top of the Form Designer.  There is a button for each of the most common types of questions.  Pressing the button adds that question type to the form. Clicking the down arrow next to a question button will show related question types; choosing one of these will add that type of question to the form.
Please note that the dropdown previously titled “Advanced” is now titled “Tools”.  The “Advanced” dropdown now contains advanced, less-common question types.
For documentation on exactly how to use this feature, see our Help Site page here: https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/Form+Designer
