The Points Per Field feature lets you assign a point value to each form field so that you can reward entrants based on how many fields they fill out. Points Per Field can also be thought of as extra entries, or extra chances to win. You can assign a point value to any field on your form.
How It Works
Imagine you're running a contest with four fields on the Form: Email Address, Name, Age, and Photo. Users can choose to submit information in just one field, or all four. Now you use the Points Per Field feature to make the email field worth 8 points, the name field worth 4 points, the age field worth 1 point, and the photo field worth 7 points. A user who enters information in all four fields will receive all 20 points, while a user who only submits email and name will have 12. That means the first entrant will have a much better chance to win because they submitted more information.
Assigning Points to a Field
To set up the Points Per Field feature, take the following steps:
- Create a Form, or edit an existing Form in the Form Designer.
- Hover over a field in the form preview, and click the pencil icon to edit the field.
- Find the Extra Points menu.
- Enter a number in the Extra Point Value field.
- Save your form.
