Know that you can build a contact form with the forever free plan (Basic), while the paid plans enable more advanced features for your contact form.To create a contact form, sign up for the 123FormBuilder service and follow the steps below:
Sign up or log into 123FormBuilder with your account credentials. If you’ve just signed up, you’re already logged in. If you already had an account, enter your username and password on the login page.
Click Create New Form on the top left side of your dashboard, under the header.
You can select a form template or you can create the form from scratch. If that is the case, select Blank Form. Click the canvas to proceed.
You are now in the Form Editor, where you can adjust the form fields and form layout (if you’ve selected a form template) or add your form fields to the form.
There are three types of fields: basic fields , specific fields and other fields . To add a field to the form, select it and drag it to the layout. Hold the click on the field while placing it on the form. You can drag and drop the fields that are already included in the form layout if you want to change the order in which they appear. By hovering on the sides of the form, you can adjust the layout and design of the form. You can also add multiple fields on one row and adjust their sizes.
You may also change the design of the form by clicking on Edit – Themes or the pallet button in the right corner of the screen next to the Preview button.
When you are done creating and designing the form, switch to the Settings section.
The Settings section has many options that you may use, but in this article we are going to set up the email notification that we receive and the confirmation message/ autoresponder that the form user will receive after the contact form is submitted.
The email address associated to the 123FormBuilder account is automatically the recipient of the email notifications for each created form. You may change this by hovering over the email address and press the Edit button. You can also add new recipients by using the New Recipient button and create branches based on certain conditions.
Next, change tab to Form User Options to check which emails you can send to your form users. You can set up a customized autoresponder or have the copy of the submission sent to the form users.
In Settings – Thank you page select what should appear after the user submits the form.
And there you have it!
A great contact form that will allow your audience to communicate with you fast and easy. And as you’ve seen, no coding skills were needed. If you want to build more advanced contact forms, feel free to browse around your 123FormBuilder account and create new contact forms.
