Create a typeform
1. Let’s create a new typeform. Click the + New typeform button: …and then Start from scratch:Now you can give our form a name (and tell us what you’re creating -optionally- from the dropdown menu). Click Continue when you’re ready.2. Click the + to open the Questions menu:…and choose a question from the menu that appears, by tapping on it:
I’m going with a Welcome Screen to start, so I tap that and then write in the text I want.3. Next, tap the question icon to open Settings (the green rectangle, in this case). Now we can see what we can do with this question: Add Recall Information (Variables), Image, Video and edit the Button text.4. I’m going to add an image. You can search the UnSplash library, or tap Upload to choose an image from your iOS device.
I’ve decided to use Unsplash: I’ve searched for “event” – so now I can browse the results, and tap on the image I like to add to my question:A small image thumbnail will appear under any question you add an image to. Click the x if you want to remove your image:5. Tap + again (as in #2) to add another question. This time I’m adding an Email question.
As above, once you’ve chosen your question, write the text you want, then tap the question icon to open settings. I’ve made this email question Required – it’s essential that people complete this!
To finish this example contact form, I’ve added a Thank You screen too:That’s all there is to it! You can now share your typeform.

To change your typeform’s name, or make it private, tap Create. This will open up a new menu where you can edit your typeform’s name, and toggle Public/Private mode:You can also view the Share panel and your Results.
