How to use Send a Form node
The Send a Form node allows you to design and customize forms according to your specific requirements. By leveraging its functionality, you can effortlessly capture valuable information from your website visitors.
To add a new field to the form, click on the + icon below the existing fields.
By clicking on each field, you can specify:
- Answer type
- Field name
- whether the field should be required (mandatory)
- whether the answer should be saved as a contact property
Let's take a closer look at all of these options.
Allows you to choose the format of how you wish to save your visitors' answers. At this moment, you can select from the following options:
- Long text
- Phone number
- Dropdown ( that allows your website visitors to choose an option from pre-designed answers)
Allows you to specify the field name that will be visible to your visitors inside the form.
It allows you to decide whether the specific field should be mandatory in the survey. When the required option is enabled, the form will only be submitted if all mandatory fields have been completed.
Save as Contact Property
Allows you to save the collected data as a contact property. The Contact Properties assigned to the contacts are stored in the Contacts section. You can also use those data later on for Condition & Action nodes in Chatbots to make your bots even more personalized.
When the form is created and the bot activated, it will be displayed on your website visitors' side as a built-in form inside the widget.
How to delete fields
You can delete each created field by clicking on the Delete icon next to each field. The edit & delete icons will be shown when you hover the mouse over a chosen field.
How to move and reorder fields
