The 5 question formats that are just your type

One of the things that makes Cheddar Up so attractive to group organizers is the ability to collect both payments AND forms together, seamlessly. And now we’ve made it even easier to collect the information you need, in the format that you need it.

We’ve long since had the ability for you to add “open type” and “multiple choice” questions to your Cheddar Up collections. Now, allow us to introduce the question types that will take your forms to the  next level.

There’s no stopping how you can use Cheddar Up. Ask people anything! Camp selections, sign a waiver, contact information, birth date, the list goes on, and on, and on.

Spoiler alert: We’re thrilled that you can now collect electronic signature on forms, along with payment! Join the hundreds of thousands who find unsurmountable ways to use Cheddar Up to make their group collecting easier.

Tour our question types

The first stop on our tour begins in the builder. Click on “Forms” to add a form and to give your form a name, with the option to add a form description. From there, simply start adding questions based on the information that you need to collect.

Open Text Question

The workhorse of the form world; the Open Text question. Use Open Text questions to collect a single word or short sentence response. For example, name, street address, or city.

Multiple Choice Question

When a question requires people to choose from a list of options, you need a Multiple Choice question. This question type lets respondents select one answer from a defined list of choices.

Checkboxes Question

Checkbox questions are similar to Multiple Choice but let respondents select multiple answers from a defined list of choices.

Date Question

“November”? “Nov”? A Date question doesn’t leave your respondents guessing about how to enter their birthdays or preferred dates.

Time Question

One could argue that it’s about time.

Phone Question

Collect, print and export phone numbers in a consistent format.

Electronic Signature

Gamechanger! From permission slips to photo releases, the Electronic Signature question type has your organization covered. Now you can collect electronic signature on forms…right alongside payment. Respondents can sign with a mouse or by touch on a mobile device. Organizers can view signatures on screen or can print with a click.
