Basic and Advanced fields

Modified 9 months ago


We have classified the fields into two primary categories - Basic and Advanced for your easy understanding. The fields like Text box, Text area, or Dropdown that are universally used can be spotted under the Basic category and the ones that are specific to Kissflow which solve complex problems relatively like a Lookup, or Remote Lookup field will be placed under the Advanced category.

Navigate to the respective form editor in your flow to access the Fields panel to your right side. Toggle between the Basic and Advanced fields tabs to access the field that you would like to use in your flow form. You have to drag and drop a field from this panel onto your form editor to add it. You can also click the empty area in your form section to quickly search for a field and add it instantly.
