We’ve got a new featurelet for our designer friends out there in Wufoo land to help make your fellow legal buddies smile. We’ve added a new built in CSS Keyword called scrollText that turns a section break into a fixed height box with sweet scrollbar action. Now you can show your terms of service and other legal conditions right inside your form without having to sacrifice a lot of vertical space.
Using the CSS Keyword
To use this CSS Keyword, just add a section break field to your form, copy/paste your text and then add scrollText to the CSS Layout Keyword options under the Field Settings tab. Please note that this feature only works on Section Breaks and like all CSS Keywords does NOT update live in the Form Builder, but will show the effect on your live form and in the Entry Manager. You can learn more about this feature and other useful keywords in our CSS Keyword Documentation.
Using HTML to Add a Link
If you’re not interested in copy/pasting all your legal mumbo jumbo right into your form, you can always add a HTML link to your Terms of Service sitting on another web page by adding the markup right in the text of one of your choices for your checkbox field.
I agree to the <a href="https://www.wufoo.com/terms/" target=”_blank”>Terms of Service</a>.
The above line will result in a checkbox choice that will link to your terms from your form like so:
Either way, we hope these methods will help you create a more transparent data collection process by making access to your terms, rules and conditions a lot more convenient for your users.
