With Sitefinity CMS, you can create rich interactive forms straight into your browser. You can prompt visitors to provide their contact details, complete a survey, fill in questionnaires, thus collecting information in an easy and streamlined manner. Once you create a form in the backend, you simply drag and drop form widgets on the page canvas and edit them to customize the form’s content. In addition, you can edit the form’s layout and structure without any code or HTML knowledge.

You can utilize a wide array of form widgets, such as textbox, multiple choice, dropdown lists and rearrange and manage them to display default choices, implement limitations, instructional text, and so forth.

Once visitors fill in forms on your website, you can set up notifications, confirmation emails, and manage large volumes of form responses in the backend and frontend. In addition, you can export responses for further analysis and use.

You manage forms on the Forms page. To open the Forms page, in the main menu in the upper part of the screen, click Content » Forms. You can see a list with all created forms together with actions you can perform on them. Use this page to create, design, and edit forms and manage responses to forms.

NOTE: You create and edit Forms in the classic interface. For more information, see Reference: New content editing experience and the classic interface

The following table summarizes the main properties and actions for Forms.
