Edit forms

NOTE: Sitefinity Digital Experience Cloud (DEC) was renamed to Sitefinity Insight as a part of the Sitefinity 13.0 release. However, Sitefinity CMS and its documentation prior to version 13.0 continue using the former name - Digital Experience Cloud.

There are two ways to edit a form. You can edit the properties of a form, such as title, categories and tags and you can edit the content of a form by adding layout elements and form widgets.

Editing the properties of a form

You can edit the properties of a form in the following way:

  1. On Forms page, click the Actions link of the respective form and in the dropdown list, click Properties.
    The Edit a form page appears.
  2. In Title input field you can change the title of the form.
    The title of the form is used in the backend only and is not displayed on the website.
  3. In Name used in code you can change the automatically generated name that is used to refer to the form in the code.
  4. When you are finished, click Save changes.

If you configured connectors to other systems, such as Marketo, Eloqua, or DEC, you can send form data to them. For more information, see Send form data to external applications.

Edit the content of a form
