This feature is available on Pro and Agency plans.

If you want to give respondents a way to pick a color, there's now a way to do that in the form itself. The most obvious choice for this would be anything that relates to design and requires that certain colors are used.

How to add a Color Picker field:

  1. In the form editor, insert a question field, and select type as ‘Color Picker’ field. Alternatively, use a slash command by typing ' / ' and choosing a ‘Color Picker’ field from the list of question types (see image below).

  1. Go to ‘Configure’ to the right of the field and adjust the settings however you’d like.

What you see in the editor

Default answer — Choose the default color shown in the live form
Swatches — Define specific colors for quick and easy selection
Allow swatches only — Restrict respondents to only the colors you want

To manage swatches, click on any swatch (the colored box above the color picker) to delete it. Additionally, pick a new color using the color picker or enter a hex color code and add a new swatch.

What the respondent sees

If you haven't allowed swatches only, a respondent can still pick a color by using the color picker or entering a hex color code.

If you allow swatches only, your respondent will instead see this:

You can mix and match settings and stack color pickers side-by-side. For example, say you have a base color where you only want to allow certain colors and then you have some accents that are not restrictive.

That might look something like:

The possibilities are nearly endless.
