Form Types

Choose a form type when you create a form.

Form TypeDescription
Collaborative – StudentThis type of form is tied to a specific student and can therefore have elements tied to PowerSchool’s SIS student fields. The collaborative aspect means that multiple users can modify the same set of data. The form shows all viewers the most recent response to the form and supports administrator approval. 
Individual Response – StudentA student-based form where each user has their own response data, separate from others, except for elements that are tied to PowerSchool fields. The form shows only the responder’s last response and does not allow for administrator approval. Examples include student evaluation and discipline forms.
Fee Payments – StudentsThis form allows fees to be paid. See the Payments setup section for details.
Individual Response – TeacherThis type of form is tied to a teacher or staff record. Its elements can be tied to PowerSchool’s School Staff fields. Each user has their own response data. The form shows only the responder’s last response and does not allow for administrator approval. For example, a parent form to evaluate a teacher.
Collaborative – TeacherA teacher-based form where all users modify the same set of data. The form shows all viewers the most recent response to the form and supports administrator approval. 
General SurveyThese forms are not tied to student or teacher data. They are used to collect new data; no prior responses are populated into the form. An example is a field trip form.
Pre-RegistrationThis form allows parents to submit new student information prior to the student record being created in PowerSchool’s SIS. The form is available for customers that have Enrollment Express. Basic fields required for new student creation are automatically added to the form and mapped to the appropriate SIS fields. You can add new fields and map them to PowerSchool SIS fields and extensions. Parents can submit the pre-registration form publicly without a login. Administrators are notified when the form is submitted and can run the Pre-Registration Submissions report to manage the form’s approval process. Refer to Pre-Registration Form for details.
