How online form building really works

Formstack has developed an easy form building tool that allows you to create incredibly useful, great looking online forms within seconds. (Yes… seconds.) Here’s a breakdown of what you’d experience when you launch your 14-day free trial.

1. Select your path

Start by selecting one of our pre-built forms or use our Field Guide, which will help you every step of the way. Are you a do-it-yourself type? No worries, we have a blank slate ready for your form building artistry.

2. Build your first form

With our easy drag-and-drop tool, you can easily pop different fields (name, email, etc.) in and out of your online form template. You can even add your company logo or an image to boost brand awareness. For additional help, check out our Ultimate Guide to Online Form Design.

3. Customize to your needs

Dig a little deeper into our features and integrations to make sure you’re getting the most out of your collected data. Send information to third-party integrations so that you can automate your collection process. You can also set up confirmation emails and customize one of our themes to match your brand.

4. Publish the URL link

Once you are finished with editing, you are now ready to publish your form! What will happen at this stage is you’ll receive a URL link that goes directly to the form you created. Since it’s a live link, any time you make changes to the form, those changes will be updated immediately! You also have the option of embedding the form onto your existing site.

5. Share with your audience

In order to maximize the amount of submissions you receive, be sure to take advantage of our social buttons, allowing you to share your form online through your various social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
