Create a form for a web template


How to create a form for a web template (Sitecore Personalize).

To further enable marketers to customize a web experiment or web experience without using code, technical users can create dynamic forms for the marketer to complete, without ever having to edit HTML. All the marketer has to do is enter or select the content they want to display in the web experiment or experience, as shown in the following image.

[[parameter_name | type | default_value | {config1: value1, config2: value2 } ]]
