Form Question Types:

Bloom comes with a great variety of question types for you to choose from. Everything from multiple choice questions, Yes/No questions to scheduling questions and everything in between. We have compiled a list of all the different types of entries you can make within a Bloom form. Click one of the 7 options below to go to the instructions for that specific form entry type.

  1. Instant Booking Question

    1. This entry field is limited to just instant booking forms and will show up by default.

    2. The instant booking question allows your users to pick packages, ad optional upsells, sign contracts, choose a time, and pay for their service all in one easy-to-use booking flow.

Multiple Choice Questions:

Multiple-choice questions are one of the best types of questions you can ask. They are simple for your client to answer and only require one tap when they are on their mobile device. You can ask anything from color preferences to budget ranges your prospect or client prefers, using these multiple-choice questions.

Yes/No Questions:

Yes/No Questions are similar to multiple choice questions in that they are easy to fill out on your phone and make the prospect's decision-making process a breeze.

Use these questions to answer simple yes or no questions like "Are you interested in business cards with your headshot order?"

Short Paragraph Question:

The short paragraph option lets your prospects tell you more about their needs. This can be used to help your prospects understand what they are looking for and allow you to tailor your quote to their specific needs.

Text Field Question:

The text field allows your client to enter a short text answer. This is useful for asking questions like the name of their wedding venue or zip code where they need services.

Scheduling Question:

This question allows your prospect to pick a time on your calendar that works for their session. This can determine a time for everything from their session date to when they would like to have a call with you. Please feel free to make this question required or optional. You can also set a limited date range on this question so that it will only show dates that you want to book specifically. This is useful for users who run promotions towards services delivered on specific days, like photographing mini sessions.

You can also opt to use your availability settings. This will allow people to book any available time within the availability settings you have set on your calendar and is not already blocked off from a different event coming from one of your 3rd party connected calendars. You can use the limited date range and availability settings in tandem with each other for more specific control. You can also choose to turn one or both of them off for a more open calendar. Just keep in mind that if you turn them all off, your leads will be able to choose times when you are busy with other events on your calendar.

Specialty Question:

The specialty question is super helpful for your clients to pick the type of session they are looking for. While this question is not required, you can use it to trigger specific automations for leads with that specialty.
