Forms are a great way for visitors to provide specific information to you via an email.

  1. First click on the Elements tab on the left, then in the Contact section, click on Contact form.




  2. Position the form in the desired spot on the page and click your left mouse button. This will drop the form onto the page.




  3. The standard form may provide the information you need, but if not, you can customize the form by adding or removing fields. Simply click the Manage Form button in the toolbar.



  4. On the left side, you can see each field currently on the form. To the right is a trash can. If you wish to delete a field, simply click the trash can. If you want to change the field, click the desired field on the left. You can change the label text to anything you like. There are several fields types to choose from. Lastly, you can select the checkbox to make the field optional. If you uncheck the box, the field is required and the form can't be submitted without it.



  5. As with other elements, if you click more in the toolbar, you will see the advanced tab. Click it, and on the right side, you will see the advanced settings. Here you can change tons of design elements, like font, size, shadows, opacity, and many more options.

Hello,

You can place your form anywhere you want on your site. What is it that you are not understanding, so that I can clarify things for you?

Oh, I see. You can upload a PDF but we cannot control how it prints. That would depend on the PDF that is uploaded and the individuals print settings.

I'm sorry, your answer was not clear for me.  How do you update the email address that a form will send to?  Can you please be specific on where I go to do this?

Hello,

If you click on the form within the builder, you just need to click More > Advanced > Settings and you will see the email address it is currently set to go to. You will just need to delete that and add the new one.

How can you keep the contact form only on the page you have it on.  When I add one, it tries to add it to all my page as a master form.

If any part of the contact form is placed in the header or footer section it will display on all pages. Make sure the entire form is placed in a specific section. Also, check under more, advanced, size and position and make sure the form is not set to show on all pages.
