- Or, Law Ruler allows you to choose from several different types of formats, (Single Line Text, Paragraph, Dropdown, Yes/No, Pick List, Radio Button, Date, Time, Phone, SSN, EIN) for your intake questions.

The “Single Line Text” is for shorter reply questions such as “What body part was injured?”
The “Paragraph” for longer questions such as “Describe your incident for me.”
The “Radio Button” is for Yes/No Questions Only.

- After entering your question, and pressing “Save,” each question that you customize for your intake workflow will go here below in the “List of Questions” area below, so you can see the changes that you make as you edit the questionnaire form.
Please Note: make sure that you map each question to a field in Law Ruler if you are going to create your own questions and not use the ready-made widgets.
