J2e5 allows you to create interactive content that can survey user opinions, generating a useful information sheet.
Begin by opening a J2e5 file. You might like to populate this with information that will be relevant to the questions. For information on how to use the other functions in J2e5, click here
Once your document is populated, click on the "forms" button. This will give you a number of form field options for your form. Your choice will be determined by the information you wish to collect:
- checkbox - used for multiple answers from a multiple choice question
- radio button - used for a singular selection from a multiple choice question
- text box - used for a single line of text from an open ended question
- text area - used for multiple lines of text from an open ended question
- drop list - an editable list of answers
Each form field category will provide different functionality, and allow you to create a differentiated survey such as this:
Click the forms button and select a form field from the list. As soon as you select a form field the relevant box/button will appear, and float until placed on the page. To place the box/button on the page, left click on the page.
A "send" button will appear, and float until placed on the page. The "send" button is used to submit the data from the form, and so will need to be placed near the end of the quiz/survey/questionnaire/document. Left click on the page to place the "send" button:
You can now add more form fields onto your page:
