To create a form, simply log in to your management portal and select the Forms tab at the top of the screen. Once you have selected the Forms tab, enter the title of your new form in the “Create New Form” field and select "Create."
After you have created your form, you will be able to customize it by selecting different fields on the left side of your screen. Some options are “read only” such as Heading, Spacer and Paragraphs. These are great fields to use when adding a title or description to your form. Fields such as Text Box, Text Area and Dropdown allow different ways to gather information.
Once you have created your form, don’t forget to click save at the top of your screen.
Adding Photos to a Form
Use HTML formatting to include a photo in the Paragraph field. This enhances the visual aspect of the form and can provide important contextual information about the form.
HTML format example for a photo:
<img src="URL" style="width:100%">
Simply copy and paste this into the Paragraph field and include the URL for the photo that you want to include in the form in between the " ".
For example, <img src="https://d3oeq6z5d8uq8l.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/08144003/group_mens.png" style="width:100%">
Add payments to smart forms to take care of things like event registrations, tickets, or other items for sale.
Select a fund that will be associated with the form payment.
- Minimum. The number of event tickets, t-shirts, books, etc. you would like to require per submission. This quantity can be set to zero to make the payment optional.
- Maximum. Want to place a cap on how many payments are made in a single form? Place a max to make this happen.
Credit, debit, and ACH payments are accepted on forms. Donors simply toggle between the Card and Bank Account tabs to select a payment method.
