A Custom field can be added to your Userback widget by simply enabling it in the widget form.

Add a custom field to your widget

  1. Go to Settings

  2. Select Widget and expand the Feedback Form

  3. Toggle on Custom field, you can also make this field mandatory or optional

  4. You can select from the following field types:

Checkbox: Add a checkbox to allow the report to agree to terms, provide consent or confirm a certain part of the feedback process was completed / accurate
