Option fields allow you to present pre-set or custom options to athletes to select from. The image above shows all of the different Options used in a Form. The different Selection Fields to choose from include:

* True/False: For questions with a True or False answer

* Yes/No: For questions with a Yes or No answer

* Tick: That can be used for as an indicator of importance of a field (discussed in the "Important Fields" lesson)

* Drop Down: the list of options is hidden, and the athlete clicks on the list and then selects from the drop down list (discussed in the next lesson)

* Search List: instead of a list or a drop down box, users can type in the text area to search for the correct option to select (discussed in the next lesson)

* Multiple Selection: where athletes are presented with a list and can choose more than one variable (discussed in the next lesson)

* Single Selection: where athletes are presented with a list and have to choose one variable (discussed in the next lesson)

The most essential component of adding in a Selection Field is setting up the Options, Scoring and Properties correctly. Read this section to find out how to do this.
