I created a website using the (desktop) Homestead SiteBuilder with Windows 10.  My website includes a form with a Submit button that should send an Email AND create a text file.  When people submit info, I get the email with their response, and a second email telling me the data's been saved in a .csv file.
  - Problem: I can't access the .csv file(s) via the SiteBuilder, and when I go to the 'Websites Manager' (in Homestead Website Builder), I can't even FIND the website!

It looks like you have built pages in both builders. All new sites are intended to use the new online Websitebuilder. If you want to use Sitebuilder, you may, but we must convert the site for you so that you can find the form manager on the Websites manager page. In Websitebuilder, you can see the form responses in the editor, by selecting the form and looking on the right.

Hello.  Thank you for your reply.  The primary reasons I started to build my form in WebsiteBuilder but didn't finish it were: (a) difficulty in finding the form elements in the various menus, (b) LACK of useful Help, and (c) my website name being made EVEN LONGER because the "homestead.com" part of it was something like "homesteadcloud.com", making the URL very cumbersome for people to enter.

For now, I will keep my page/site in SiteBuilder, since hardly anyone is accessing it, so I really don't need to use the Form Manager.

BTW: I didn't see ANY information on the Website Builder page saying that new sites should use Website Builder. And if we aren't supposed to use SiteBuilder going forward, why was it available for download w/o any warning message??????

It is the newest builder and that is why all new sites are assigned to it. You are still welcome to use Sitebuilder, which is why it is available for download. I have converted the site for you, so you can see the form manager from the Websites manager page now.
