Sharing web forms created with Plumsail Forms

Sharing pages

Sharing pages allow you to share forms directly with users - via the URL. You can send this URL in an email, or add it to any link on your site.

To create a sharing page, please, go to your Plumsail Account -> Forms -> Pages section and click Add page:

Add page for sharing

Once you click it, you’ll be greeted with the following screen:

New page creation

Here, you can configure sharing page to your liking and change its appearance to match your company’s or personal style.

If you select Make default for this page, you’ll be able to share any form with this page, by copying links in Forms section of your account:

Links to forms

Title field is mandatory and its required to identify each sharing page that you have. You can also change the Logo and add a link to it, so when users click on the logo, it redirects them to your site. Adjust Header where the logo is placed by switching header color or the pattern, where you can choose from many options. Choose Body background - either a solid color or an image.

You can upload your own image or select one of existing in image gallery:

Customize the text that appears above the form.

Finally, you can also adjust Footer’s background color, text color and what text will appear in the footer.

With all that done, save the page.

After saving you’ll get some extra options. For once, you’ll be able to Save as or Delete the page. You’ll also finally get an option to Share the page:

Share or quit

When you click Share, you’ll be able to choose which form to share and copy the URL for sharing:

Note

If you’re placing more than one form per page, make sure to change div id=”plumsail-form” and new Plumsail.Form(“#plumsail-form” to something unique for each widget. The easiest option is to add an index, for example:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://forms.plumsail.com/widget/***/app.js"></script>
<div id="plumsail-form1"><div class="fd-form-loading"></div></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
   var fd = new Plumsail.Form("#plumsail-form1", "...");
</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://forms.plumsail.com/widget/***/app.js"></script>
<div id="plumsail-form2"><div class="fd-form-loading"></div></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
   var fd = new Plumsail.Form("#plumsail-form2", "...");
</script>
