To make a User Task functional in Atlas Play, you'll need to fill your Sections with Fields. Each Field can serve a multitude of functions, from displaying something, to gathering data, to allowing things such as field uploads or offering drop down menus.

How do you add a Field in Atlas Play?

To add a field in Atlas Play, you first need a Section for that field to go in. To find out more about Sections, head on over to our article Creating a Section. They're simple to create and edit and every User Task you place in Atlas Play comes with one Section as standard.

With a User Task selected and the Edit section button clicked, you'll see the option to Add a New Field.

Give it a click and you'll see that you need to select a field mode and choose a Data Store Item to populate it.

What are the available Field Modes?

There are three different Field Modes to choose from when creating a Field in Atlas Play:

  • Entry Fields enable fields that allow users to input something, whether that's text, a number, or even upload a file.

  • Entry - Select Fields allow you to offer your users a drop down menu with pre-defined options to select from.

  • Display Fields allow you to display something to your user, from text, to numbers, to images, to hyperlinks, and more.
