Configuration Options

Swatches

Swatches allow you to define specific colors for quick and easy selection. You can add a new swatch by using the color picker or entering a hex color code and clicking "Add swatch." Click on any swatch to delete it.

Allow swatches only

Restrict responses to the swatches only, instead of choosing any color with the color picker.

Setting a Default answer

In your question configuration, you can set a default color for your Color Picker field. Click "Pick a color" and choose the desired default color. You can change this anytime by selecting a new color or remove the default entirely by clicking "REMOVE DEFAULT ANSWER."

You can configure Color Picker fields to customize available swatches, allow swatches only, and set a default answer.

Gotchas

  • Responses to this question will be displayed as a hex color code rather than a swatch displaying the color. For example, "#F7B520".
