Create a form

When you create your first Tally form, you’ll notice that a form is a combination of building blocks. When you start typing you’re automatically creating a text block, but there are many more blocks to discover!
Type / to see the different types of form blocks you can add to your form. You can find an overview of all keyboard shortcuts here.


Just start typing

Give your form a title and hit enter . You can choose a pre-made template from our gallery, but let’s start from scratch to keep it simple.
To create a form or a survey you’ll want to insert questions and answers. You can choose from a list of pre-made questions + input blocks. Just click + or type /question to see the available options or use our keyboard shortcuts.

Alternatively, questions can be also made by inserting a /h3 or /label, and answers can be chosen separately from the list of input blocks. Just type /email for example.
