Creating a form

The setup is made up of five different phases

Your first step is to name your form and provide a description (optional).
2. Information Type
In this form type, only general information can be collected. Please continue onto the next step.
3. Form Builder
The form builder provides the ability to customize your form to suit your needs. You can apply different response types (paragraph, multi-choice, file attachments, dates, signatures, etc), make this question required, and preview what this form will look like for your public link holder.
Apply all your questions and then select the preview button to confirm you are happy with the structure for your public members.
4. Submission Options
In the submission section, you will have a link appear once you have saved this form.

Once you are happy with all of the above, scroll back to the top and press save to add this Form to your account and gain access to the link to share with the public.
