Here we’ll cover how to build and share a webform using the 99Inbound form builder.
Just need an API?
For documentation on the Form Endpoint API click here
Once you’ve signed up for 99Inbound, click on ‘forms’, then ‘new form’ to create a new form.
There are three parts to creating a form:
- Build - editing the form design with a drag and drop UI
- Configure - configuring form behavior
- Publish - getting your form online and in front of potential users
You’ll be presented with an interface that allows you to visually build your form – add new form fields, add text, change the theme, etc.
To add a new field to your form, simply click the large
+ button at the bottom of the form. To edit an existing field - simply click on the field in the form preview, or drag the field to re-order it.
Here is the form builder in action.
Form builder options
As well as editing fields you can also:
- Change the form theme
- Change the button location
- Add a dedicated form title and description
