In WebPublish 2, we offered a Webform module that allowed end users to build their own webforms. Use cases for these webforms ranged from simple Contact Us forms, to more complex application forms.
To add a webform in WebPublish 2, a site had to request to have the module enabled. Once enabled, a Webform content type would be created on their site that provided a basic form builder functionality.
Migrating to WP3
A decision was made as part of the WebPublish 3 project to stop offering the Drupal Webform module, for security reasons.The following tools can be used as alternatives and embedded on the site:
- Microsoft Forms: Microsoft Forms is a great choice for basic forms, like “Contact Us”, or simple sign-up/registration forms. The advantage of Forms is that it is available for any students, staff and faculty at Queen’s with an active NetID@queensu.ca to build forms in.
- Qualtrics: For more complicated forms that involve complex conditional logic or fields, site owners may wish to consider requesting a Qualtrics user account to migrate their WebPublish Webforms to.
