Custom Author Fields

By default, we collect the first name and last name of the author and we can optionally collect the email address too – this helps with uniquely identifying the person involved and we recommend this is a mandatory field in almost every project we run. But you may need more information on each of your authors. For example, you may wish to know their title, their middle name or initials, how they wish to be addressed or their preferred name.

You are able to use any of our existing question types to collect additional information about the author. This can range for a simple line of text, a yes/no toggle switch, multiple lines of rich text or a complicated multiple select drop down type of question.

You can ask as many questions as you wish but we always recommend that you try to keep the form as simple as possible and only collect information you know you will need to use.
