Slash Commands act as shortcuts for specific actions within the Paperform Form Editor. There are four types of slash commands available to use on your forms:
To use Slash Commands, type a forward slash (
/) in the form editor. A dropdown list will then appear showing the possible actions you can use.
Below, we'll go through each of the categories of slash commands that you may use. Each of the listed commands is given without the leading forward slash (
/) for readability, but note these commands require you use a forward slash (
/) in the form editor.
For example, /text for a new Text question.
Add questions to your form using slash commands.
Add content to your form using slash commands.
You can create Quick Questions using slash commands. Quick Questions are pre-determined question fields either containing a default title, option(s), or a specific configuration setting.
Title: What is your name?
Allow 5 lines of text in response.
Title: Do you agree to the following terms and conditions?
Hint: I will always make you cakes.
Options: I agree
Options use radio buttons for selections.
Options use checkboxes for selections.
Quick Integrations let you quickly start integrating with select services, allowing you to pull questions from the integrated service and automatically set those questions up on the form. Any imported questions are also set-up as a post-submission integration action.
You can use Quick Integrations with slash commands as shown below.
Note: Field types imported from quick integrations may not match the expected field type if the type cannot be gleaned from the integrated service (or if the provided field type is not supported).
For a more detailed look at quick integrations, have a look at our quick integrations-specific documentation.
