Forms are a great simple way of collecting information from your staff, students and parent directly into Frog. And because in most cases they are already logged in you don't have to worry about collecting their details which makes a Frog form a quick task
Currently, to create a form you only intend to use once, drag the form widget onto the. If you plan to use your form on more than one site, you should create the form in the Forms section of FrogDrive. When you add a form to a site, it actually creates a copy of the Form. This is useful if you want to reuse the same layout but change some of the details.
In the Editing panel, click the New Form button.
A new pop up appears. Here you can add and remove elements to make your form.
As with everything in Frog, it’s all drag and drops, and we’ve listened to what you’ve asked for. You can recreate the look of your paper forms by being able to set layouts for each row.
When you click option Import form it will take you to a new window which will have two options
1. Import forms
2. New Form
With my forms here you will view forms that you have created
With new form option, you can view all the forms created within Frog which can be assigned or use in a new site
Here I have a single row and I’m going to drag in a Text element. This is actually a RichText box, allowing me to add links, images and make the text bold. I can use this to make a heading in my row top
Now I can keep adding elements in this row, just like a Layout box when page editing, but I could choose to add another row underneath and have additional columns.
• We’ve already mentioned Text
• Single Line – allows me to add a single line for text entry.
• The paragraph gives the Form filler-in a larger space.
• Checkboxes let you set a number of options, which allow for more than one
• Radio buttons limit the user to one of the options.
• The dropdown is also like this
• Date Picker lets you select a date
• And File Upload allows your users to upload files to the form. This can be handy for school trips, Reprographics
Each element has options available, just like when you’re editing a page. Most are fairly obvious, so I’m just going to highlight two here:
If you check the Required Field, your users cannot submit the form without filling this bit in
I can send my form to an email address or multiple email addresses, using a comma to separate them and I can set the form to only allow one entry per person using the Single Submission Form check box.
To view the results of my form you will have two options. First, you can add a Data Viewer widget to a page or you can navigate to site menu which is located at the left top corner of the site
In the form results, I can see all the information, but if I click on the Action Cog, I can export all the data as a CSV spreadsheet or I can clear all the results.
