The Form Widget is used to display a form in your campaign. Visitors to your live campaign can then use the form to submit their entries. If you want to provide the entries yourself, you can easily fill out and submit entries inside the Campaign Builder; using visibility settings to keep the form hidden on the live campaign.
To add one of these widgets to your campaign, click the Form Widget icon in the Add Widgets Panel, or click and drag the icon into your preview area.
The widget settings popup is where you'll make any needed changes to your Form Widget. To change the widget name, click on the pencil icon in the top-left (next to the name) then type your new name.
You will also see the CSS ID (starting with a #) of your new widget listed in the top-right corner of the popup.
You'll want to move through each item in the menu on the left side to make sure you've completely customized the Form Widget in the way you'd like. You can navigate through these sections using the Back and Next buttons at the bottom.
When you're finished making changes to your widget, click the blue Save and Exit button.
The Entry Destination section is where you'd select the source (the list) where you want the form to store your new entries. You have two options - to select an existing list, or to create a new list.
To select an existing list as your source, click on the list name after Store entries in:
Clicking the link will open a popup with a list of all the lists on your account. Simply scroll through the list (or use the Search field in the top right) to find the list you'd like to use. Then, just click on the list name to select it. The form displayed in the widget will be the one attached to that list.
To create a brand new list, click on the Create new entry source link.
This will open the Create new list popup. Add a name, the number of test entries to create, and any tags you want attached to the new list using the fields provided, then click Create and Continue to Form Designer.
This will open the Form Designer, where you will set up your form according to what information you want to collect from your entrants. When you're finished, click the blue Save & Exit button.
More detailed info about this process can be found in the Form Designer help doc.
The Form Widget has tons of customizable text; you can make changes to those messages in the Text section.
Changing this text is easy; simply find the text you want to change on the left side, then add your own customized version of that text in the fields to the right. The italicized text under each customizable message provides more information about what that message is used for.
If you'd like to limit visibility of the widget to a specific date and time (for example, limit when people can submit their entries), make the widget a popup, only show the widget in your Builder, or limit in which country/countries the widget can be seen; you'd do so in the Visibility section. More information about these settings can be found in the Widget Visibility help doc.
In this section, you can add a CSS Class that will be associated with the Form Widget - that way you can target it with custom CSS code. Rules and naming conventions are provided so that you don't use a class that won't work. Simply add your CSS class(es) to the Extra CSS Classes field.
