Welcome to Typeform v2! It’s a new way to build typeforms – faster, more flexible, and we think more human. We wanted to make conversational data collection as easy as possible to create – this article shows you the basics.
Here’s the new v2 builder. Pretty, isn’t it?You’ll find most of the features and question blocks you know, and we’re adding features all the time, while how you build them has a better flow.
Let’s build a typeform!
1. There are two ways to get started. You can click a question block on the left, or just type directly into the builder, and choose the block type later. By default, your question will be set as a Short text question:
Whichever method you choose, you can change the question block whenever you want by clicking the symbol next to your question.
We’ve made v2 as close to a normal writing experience as possible. So, press return and you’ll move on to a new question (while you can simply use the Delete key to undo your work).
We’ll leave this as a Short text question, and then pipe the answer through to question 2, to make a nice conversational typeform.
2. So, I’m going to talk to the respondent, and ask them if they are in a good mood. Hit Return to start a new question, and type something like below. Then click the Multiple choice block on the left.Now you can hit Return again, and write your answer choices:3. I want to pipe the respondent’s name into this question so it feels personal. Click in the question after “Nice to meet you”, then click the Piping button on the left.You will see a new field appear over your question. It will list all your blocks, so you can choose which answer you want to pipe through. In our example, we only have one choice, so we’ll pick that.
You can see that our variable from question 1 has now been included in question 2. Cool!
4. We’ll finish up this short typeform with a Long text question, so people can just leave us a comment.
Use the cursor keys to move to the second answer ‘Amazing!’, then hit Return. One hit will let me add another answer to the Multiple choice block, then another Return starts a new question. I’m going to write my question, then choose the Long text block.5. You can return to your workspace whenever you want, and your progress will be saved automatically. When you are ready to share your typeform, you can click the Publish changes button in the top right of the interface.
You can edit your typeform whenever you want in v2. Your changes will be saved, but never made live until you click the Publish changes button.
Now you’ve clicked Publish changes, your typeform is live and ready to get answers!
