Creating Forms in the CMS

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Add forms to your web pages to be used for event registrations, contact questions, customer surveys, etc. The submitted data is stored in the CMS and can be viewed within the CMS or the data can be exported in different formats. Upon submission of a form, emails can be sent with the form data, and the user can be sent to a confirmation page.

You can create simple forms, multi step forms and simple surveys. These are created like blocks and exist on the same panel as Blocks and Media in the CMS. Form fields, also knows as form elements, are dragged and dropped onto a form block. Form blocks are then dragged and dropped on any content page in any drop block area. 

Below are some online tutorials:
