Jenzabar Campus Portal Features Help Hub



Information and features vary according to the roles to which you belong and the permissions associated with those roles. For more information, contact your module manager or your campus support team.

The options on the Options tab let you determine what is available for form users to select when they answer a question with multiple selections for them to choose from, such as a drop-down, radio button, or checkbox question.

Orientation Options

Orientation options let you determine how you want radio button and check box options to appear.

Static Options

Static options let you enter specific options that form users can select. They are specific to the form and populated from your J1 or external database.

Dynamic Options

Dynamic options let you provide options for the user based on your J1 or external database. Dynamic options utilize data sources and can be reused across forms. They are useful for commonly used form questions such as State and Country lists. Jenzabar provides several JZB options you can use and you can create your own data sources to populate these options.

If the Options Source has one or more arguments, match the argument to the corresponding form question in the drop-down list that appears below the argument.


In order to use data sources, you must set up the database connections. If you are creating custom data sources, you'll also need to set them up. See the Data Sources topic for more information.

If you right-click on a question and select Properties, and do not see the Options tab, the question you are working with may not be compatible with using static or dynamic options. These are only available for questions that can have multiple selections or answers for the user to choose from, such as a drop-down, radio button, or checkbox question.
