Under the Forms category within your CMS, you’re able to view and manage form submissions that have been made by visitors on your website. It’s important to note that if you have forms that are mapped to Funnel, submissions will only appear in Funnel. To create new forms that integrate with Funnel, reach out to Digistorm Support or your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
Follow this How to video, or the written steps below.
The form entries page lists all submissions that have been made on your forms if the “save entries” option is enabled. New entries are highlighted by a red attention icon on the right side of your table. By clicking on the view link, you can see values for all form fields and any attachments that have been uploaded.
Creating or updating a form
The following options can be edited on any new or existing form by clicking on the settings cog.
Form name: the name that appears internally for the forms.
To address: the email address that’s notified when any new submission is made.
Active: the status of your form and whether new submissions can be made.
Save entries: allow form submissions to be saved to the database.
Send email: if an email should be sent to the addresses set up earlier.
Email subject: the subject line to appear on your email communications.
Submit message: the message that appears for users once they’ve submitted your form.
Recaptcha: disallows bots from making submissions on your form (you’ve probably seen this when asking to identify images on a form).
Honeypot: a hidden form field that can be included to help identify spam submissions.
User notification: an email that’s sent to someone who submits your form.
User notification subject: the subject of an email that’s sent after completing your form.
Adding fields to your form is as simple as dragging them from the right-hand collection into the centre of the page and then giving it the title and validation you would like. Craft CMS automatically works out how best to format your fields based on which you select and the order they are selected.
Text: simple text field for collecting a single line of text from the submitter.
Text area: a larger version of the text field for collecting multiple lines of text from the submitter.
Checkbox: a checkbox allows you to present a list of options to the submitter, and for them to select those that apply to them. Additional options can be added to the checkbox list by typing them into the Options text box and selecting add.
Email: the email field allows you to collect an email from the user and confirm it’s valid on submission. This field is required if you are sending a user notification. An email field can be identified by ticking the ‘user notification field’ option.
File: allows users to submit files to you.
File extension restrictions: this allows you to define which document types can be submitted. An example of using this field may be to only allow pdf documents to be uploaded.
Hidden: this allows you to create a hidden field that is submitted along with the other content but can’t be filled up by the user.
List: this allows form submitters to enter multiple pieces of information in a structured way.
Number: a simple text field that allows the submitter to only enter numbers.
Radio: a checkbox that allows a visitor to select one out of a set of options. Additional options can be added to the radio list by typing them into the ‘Options’ text box and pressing add.
Select: a checkbox that allows you to present a list of options to the submitter, and for them to select one from a dropdown list. Additional options can be added to the dropdown list by typing them into the “Options” text box and pressing add.
