Work with Forms

Forms is an app that enables you to create and design forms that are visually appealing and easy to use within a webpage. You add a form to a webpage like any other component.

Forms offers an easy way to send data to 3rd party applications without capturing user data. Instead, Forms uses webhooks to send the data across different touch points.

To use Forms on Pages, you need JSS version 21.6.0 or later. You must have technical knowledge of JSS to do the upgrade.

Before you can add a form to a webpage, follow this workflow:

  1. Create a form.

  2. Design your form by adding a layout, fields, and styling.

  3. Add a webhook.

  4. Activate the form.

Your activated form is now available for use in:

  • Pages - on the left-hand pane, on the Components tab, navigate to the Forms section

  • Components - in the component toolbar, click Form. In the right-hand Sitecore Forms pane, choose a form.
