Configuring the Form:

When you first open the Questionnaire Form, you’ll be shown a screen like this. Because the Questionnaire is user-configurable, you’ll need to set some default questions to begin using it to its fullest. You can do this by clicking the "Configure default options"

Once you've selected this you can hop into the "Custom Field Settings" to set up the default configurable settings on the form. 

Choosing the right Response Type:

With the New Questionnaire Form we now have 9 configurable response types with the new responses being:

Written Answer:
Selecting this as the response will allow the person filling in the form to type anything they want, up to 100 characters. This type of response is perfect for situations where you need a brief summary rather than an in-depth answer.  

Written Answer Box: This is essentially the same as Written Answer, but with room for much more text (300 characters!). This type of response is great if you need a lot of detail. 

Numerical Answer: Selecting this response type will restrict the possible answer to numbers only. 

Image Upload: This response type will prompt your user to upload an image. This is normally done from the Attachments section while filling the Form. 

Date/Time: When this is selected, the user will be prompted to select a time and day. No extra text can be entered with this response type. 

Yes/No:  This field will only allow for either a Yes or No response, no extra information can be entered.

Using the Force... Switch:
