Custom Forms are a great feature to use with your Create site. They have many uses such as the ability to create an online registration form, or the option to allow customers to send you an image or specific information you require.
To locate the Custom Form area, please follow the steps below:
After setting up the Form template, you next need to build the form by adding the fields you want visitors to fill out.
On this screen you will be presented with your form title and button text. You can adjust this here if you want to alter either of them.
In this section, you can also specify an alternative email in the To Email field. If you leave this field empty, messages sent through the form will be sent to the email address you have supplied in the Content > Site Information area of your account.
You can choose if you want the default Thank you page that customers see after they complete the form. You can change this to one of your existing pages if you would prefer.
Once you have amended this information as you wish you will need to click Save Changes.
Next, you will set up the Custom Form fields.
This will add the first field to your form, for example, Full Name. Repeat the above process for the remaining form fields you wish to have present in the form.
You will see a list of all fields you have created for the form displayed in on the Form screen. If needed, you can arrange the fields by clicking on the arrow icons next to each field to move them up or down the form list.
When you have finished adding all the fields, if you return to the main Custom Form section of Create, the form will be listed there. If you click on the Eye icon, you will see a preview of how the form looks.
