Guided more provides a one-question-at-a-time experience and modifies the behavior of pagination.

Enabling guided mode

You may enable Guided Mode by toggling it on in Theme. Theme is found in the upper right-hand corner of the form editor.

Enable guided mode


When guided mode is enabled, pagination works and appears slightly differently from the standard form experience.

Back button

Toggle include a back button to allow users to easily go backward in a form. Users may also use Shift + Tab to go back with or without a back button.

Progress bar

Toggle include progress bar to enable a modern, unobtrusive progress bar displayed as a thin, colored line at the top of the page.

Page numbers

Toggle include page numbers to include the current page and overall number of pages in the form of x / y in the upper right-hand corner of the form.

Example of all pagination options enabled for guided mode

Pagination options in action


Other content entered directly onto the form (e.g. text, videos, images) display on their own page, even if you place them right after a question and before a break. This is because each question in guided mode always displays on its own page with no other content.

Text, images, and videos may all display together on the same page.
