The form builder is where you can design and edit your forms in Array. The form builder also contains all the information for that specific form such as any submissions and all the sharing option.

When you design a new form or edit an existing form, you will do so through our form builder. Once you click on your new or existing form, the form builder will load up on the 'Create' tab
‘Create’ is where you create and design your form. Our form builder uses the drag and drop system with the elements from the toolbox.
At the top of the form builder you have several options on this form - Create, Share, Connect and Results.
When you click on Share you will be shown the sharing options on this form in the top right hand side. The tab options are:
Public Settings - this includes the options for URL Redirect, Passwords, Logo, Complete Text, Button Alignment and Analytics Tracking ID.

Link - this includes the public link and the QR code. You can also share the form straight to your social media accounts.
