Creating An New Form

Follow this guide to learn how to set up your first form.

Guide for creating your Form using the admin-dashboard:

Navigate to the Forms section under Content in the sidebar.

Here you click on "Create Form" - if you have already created a form, you can always click on the form you want to edit.

You now need to give your Form a title, slug and a category. Form Title: Will appear in several places on the website and will be the name your users see.

Form Slug: The name of the URL that the user arrives at when filling out the application. If you choose to type test, the application can be accessed at this link: <yourpage>

Category: The group that the name should be placed under on the website. You can have multiple applications under the same category.

You will now be taken to a page where you can change a lot of things about your form.

What steps should you take next?

1 - Set up your Form with the questions to answer. You can read all the types of fields you can use under Forms Question Types - you can create drop-down menus, long-text fields, images, and checkmarks as fields.

2 - Turn on which groups can see and respond to applications for that specific group. By default, Default users can always respond to all applications made. You can create new groups under Permissions & Groups where you can also change which groups can view and respond to specific applications.

3 - Finally, when you are ready, press "Enable", this makes your Form visible on your website (only for groups that can see it). As long as your form is Disabled, it cannot be accessed via your project's website.

Always make sure to click "Save Changes" at the bottom when making changes to your application form, otherwise you risk your changes not being saved.
