Category in Email form

A category question is a question where you can link sub-questions with different options. When a visitor makes a selection in the first drop-down list, the sub-questions related to that selection appear in the next drop-down list.


If, for example, you have sub-questions City, School and Class start by creating a category for City. Under the respective option under City, for example Towny, create the next category School where you add the schools found in Towny. To add an additional category, Class, select each school and add the options for class.

Click on the Add field link to add a field (a question). Select the field type you want to add. You will get different settings depending on the field type you select.
