Check out our new Selection Tags Editor Element!
Selection Tags let site visitors choose from a set of options, each displayed as a tag. They provide a neat and compact alternative to checkbox groups and radio buttons.
You can find Selection Tags in the Add Panel under User Input after you create a data collection or turn on Dev Mode.
What can you do with Selection Tags?
Data users can let visitors specify their preferences when filling out a form
Corvid users can let visitors filter dynamic content based on categories or keywords
Be sure to:
Q: Can I add a checkmark icon to selected tags?
A: At the moment icons are not supported. However, you can achieve this effect by adding a ✓ Unicode character with Corvid. Check out this example.
Q: Can I use Selection Tags for single-selection?
A: Almost, but not quite. You can achieve similar behavior with Corvid, but it will suffer from accessibility issues (namely, keyboard navigation and screen-reader will not behave as expected). We are aware of the demand for this feature, which is likely to comprise our first follow-up release.
Q: Can I limit the number of tags a visitor can select?
A: Yes, with Corvid. See this example.
