How to record a form

If an input field or a system dropdown is recorded, your users need to enter an input to continue to the next step. 

Types of the input field

Userlane offers two input types for recording a form field: 

  • Any value means that a user can type in any text or number that they want to. That could be their name or address in a form field or the number of working hours during their last working day. 

  • Specific value the user has to type in something specific. This is the perfect option if you need to allow only a specific text or number to appear in an input field. Then, your users could either type in the specified value themselves or could use the auto-fill option.

ℹ️ This option is only applicable for form input fields and dropdowns. If Userlane does not detect an input field for the step, neither Any Value nor Specific Value will be available as an option.

Record an input field step

  1. In Editor during the recording, click on the input field and optionally type in some value as well.

  2. Stop the recording.

  3. Then edit this step in Editor and check the Next selection.

  4. If it is a form field, Any Value is automatically selected as the Next option. Your users now can type in whichever value they like into the form and easily continue by clicking enter, tab, or Next button. 

  5. If you would like to switch to Specific Value, choose Specific Value in Next Selection. Then you will be asked to type the required specific value. 

  6. With Specific Value, you can decide how the user will proceed after the condition has been fulfilled. A user can proceed automatically with the input field remaining active or inactive or by hitting the Enter key.

 💡 When you are using Specific Value steps, check whether the specified value is the same in all languages.
