What is a Template

A template is a ready-made form designed by a team of experts. You can use a template and then customize it to save time in form creation.

Creating a survey form is the first, and important, step in running a data collection. Using Collect, you can either create a form from the scratch and add questions you want or you can just use a ready-made form which is also called a template. In this article, we will discuss everything you should know about it.

Benefits of Form Templates

Templates follow a theme, ex: household survey, event feedback, etc. and already have a fundamental set of questions related to the theme. Moreover, they are designed by experts so you can be confident about them.

You have absolute control over them; if you want to customize a template — add or remove a question, change the name of the form, re-order questions — you can also do that.
