Options

Additional form options:

  • Approval — Check this option to activate the approval process. When active, submissions of this form from the parent, student, or teacher portals go into a pending state until an Admin user has accepted or rejected the submission. Approval is only available on Collaborative form types.
  • Notification — This option activates the Notification function. An email is sent to the address entered into the Email field when a response is submitted for the form. Enter more than one email by separating them with commas. Click the blue arrow to open the Notification Options.
    Click the Parent tab to enable parent notifications. If a parent has agreed to notifications within the parent portal, they will receive a notification if an admin submits a form on their child's behalf. 
    Click the Admin tab to configure school-specific notifications: 
    • District Notification: Specify who should be notified when the form is submitted. 
    • School Specific Notifications: Option to send an email when the form is submitted for a student enrolled in a specific school.
    • Field Selection Notification: Option to send an email based on the response to a field on the form. Select Field to specify Email Recipients, School, Element ID, conditional Operator, and Value. 
    • Email Content: To add form elements to custom Admin notifications, use the $$ElementID format. Supported elements are Single Line Text, Multiple Choice, Checkboxes, Paragraph, Dropdown, Multi Choice Dropdown, Hidden Text, and Race/Ethnicity.
  • Anonymous Responses — Check this option to make responses anonymous, whereas typical responses log the user’s name along with the rest of the form data. Only available for General Survey form types.
  • Restrict to Submit Once — On collaborative forms, this option only allows a single response per student or teacher. On individual response forms, it allows one response per responder. After that, the Submit button is disabled. Even if a response is rejected, the form can only be submitted once.
  • Disable Submit for Family — Removes the Submit for Family option for a parent filling out a form. Only available on Student form types.
  • Enrollment Form — Define whether a form appears in the Enrollment tab. This option is only available for clients that have Enrollment Express and Ecollect Forms and does not apply to Pre-registration and Teacher forms. 
  • Clear Form on Submission — Clears the form on submission so the user is always presented with a blank form. A form field linked to a PowerSchool SIS field will still prepopulate.
  • Hide Save Button — Removes the Save for Later button from the published form.
