Using webforms

Webforms are the easiest way to get information from your site visitors. You can embed as many webforms across your site as you need, and you can easily view all of the submissions in one location in the admin menu. You may also choose to have submissions emailed to one or more email addresses, and there are several convenient configuration options for menus.

Because not every site needs this tool, Webforms are disabled by default and can be enabled later.

  1. Go to Modules from the Admin menu.
  2. Type Webform in the Search Bar.
  3. Enable the Module.
  4. Save your changes.

 

  1. You can only add a Webform to an existing page, so if the page this is going on doesn't exist yet, create it.
  2. When the Webform Module is enabled, you will see additional options for Webforms at the top of every page:

    *If you don't see these options, go back to Step 1 and make sure that the Module is Enabled.
  3. Click on Webform.
  4. Add the fields that you want your users to fill in. 

 

That should get you started with a basic Webform.

Beyond the basics, Webforms can be configured to email you notifications when submitted, randomize options, have conditional fields, etc.
