Webforms

Overview

The Webforms module in WebPublish is a tool that allows site administrators to build forms and surveys. 

Features include: 

  • The ability to create single or multi-page forms;
  • The option to add conditional logic to customize the form fields that should appear;
  • The ability to send submission results via email to necessary individuals who don't have access in the WebPublish authoring environment;
  • The ability to add reCAPTCHA to your forms, a free security service that protects your site from spam and abuse

IMPORTANT: When collecting information from visitors to your site, particularly if you will be gathering information from registered students, it's important to be aware of the access and privacy policies that govern the collection, use and retention of this information. For more information on the appropriate use of student information, visit the Access and Privacy Policy Page on the Office of the University Registrar's site. See also, information on Privacy and Personal Information and Records Management from the Records Management and Privacy office.

Getting Started

Site owners can submit an IT Services Help Form to request an initial consultation, activation and configuration of Webforms on their site. Once Webforms are ready for use, only site administrators will be able to create and manage the feature. They will also be the only users that access the submission results directly within the WebPublish authoring environment. Any other users who will require access to the results should be added to the form as an email recipient. For instructions on how to do this, please see our Configure E-mail Recipients for Webform Results tutorial.
