Hello,

I want to send a form to users to sign up to an activity so the user can provide their contact information and their acknowledgement to have read certain conditions.

I know how to configure the basic personal information, but what’s the best way to do the section for reading and acknowledging the conditions?

I don’t have a place on the web to put the text to read so I can’t send the reader to an external link. Is there a way to link to a separate field in a base, with very long text ? I would have to do this for three conditions.

I was thinking:
One of the field has to be a long text “X” to read.
The next field would be a single check box “I have read X”

Any suggestions?
Thank you

Hm, what if you used the help text area of the form?

Hi Adam
Yes, it’s exactly what I need to do! Thank you!
Now, what is “help text area”? I looked it up, and I didn’t see anything. I’m still learning this app.
Thank you kindly.
