You can create additional fields, to do this you must add a column to the file for each field, the name of the new columns must be exactly the same as the name you gave to the form field in Peewah, even if it has special characters.

IMPORTANT! For checkbox type fields (multiple choice of multiple answers) the values must be separated by [ ]; for example [Academic Level][Age][City].

When you have your completed file you must go to: File > Save as > in the format or file type you must select: Windows Comma Separated Values (.csv) and press Save, as you will see in the following image
