Creating a Contact Form with the Form Wizard
In this tutorial you will learn how to create a contact form (f. e. to receive basic contact data, messages etc. from prospects and clients)
1. Name your form
Here you give your form a name. The name is only for the administration of the form and not visible to submitters of the form.
Type in the form name, f. e. "Contact Request".
2. Form Elements
Here we provide you with a set of form fields that you typically use in a contact form.
To add more fields, select them from the drop-down menu on the right and click "Add Field".
The fields you select are added beneath the default fields. You can easily move their position by Drag & Drop.
For each field, fill out the tabs General and Validation.
Label: This is the field name
Description: This is shown as an help text to the one who fills out the form.
Required: Select if the field is required or not.
Validation Error Message: Choose your individual error message, that appears when the user didn't fill in the required field.
Validation Min/Max Length: If necessary, define here the minimum and maximum of characters that are necessary to submit the form.
3. Mail Notifications
Here you can set up a mail notification to get notified any time a user submits this form. Label = The name of the email notification
To = The name that appears in the „To“ field of the email notification
From = The email address that appears in the „To“ field of the email notification
Sent mail to = The email addresses that get an email notification each time new content is submitted
Subject = Message subject
Content = Your individual message. You can anhance your individual message with any form or field slug.
