How to fill in a Web Form

Web forms can be filled in several ways. The first way is by a client following a public link to load up a specific form. This way limits the access a people needs and will only allow them access to that specific form.

The second way can be achieved by logging in to our website and having a user account. This way, a user can fill in the forms they have been given access to.

To get to the forms, navigate to the Web Forms by clicking on 'Web Forms' on the left-hand side of the page. ​

Core menu

After finding the form you’re looking for, click to open a live version of it.

Either finding the form or clicking on the link, you’ll be given a blank copy of the form that’s ready to accept new data.

Text and number elements can be filled in by using your keyboard and your mouse can be used to navigate the form and put signatures in.

Media Elements

Media elements such ‘Take Picture’, ‘Take Video’ and ‘Take Audio’ allow users to upload pictures, videos and audio from your computer but do not allow you to take new pictures, videos or audio.

When attaching pictures to the ‘Take Picture’ element, it will display how many images you have attached and how much space you left.

‘Take Video’ and other elements as ‘Attach Document’ will display a spot on the element when a file has been attached to that element.

‘Draw over Picture’ and ‘Draw over Image’ perform in the same as the mobile app where they allow you to use your mouse to draw over an embedded image or picture that was taken. The ‘Draw over Picture’ will display a drawing icon next to the attached picture as well as the number of taken pictures like the ‘Take Picture’ element.

Logic and Functions

If any of forms have logic and/or functions built into them then this will work within Web forms.

Both will update live as you are filling in the form i.e if you have logic applied to a yes/no to reveal a text box then this display.

Functions will display an icon next to the element that has a function applied to as it does on the form builder
