  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the custom form.

Custom Form fields

Click each tab below to see a description of the associated fields.

TitleEnter a title. This title is visible to the visitors to your site.
DescriptionEnter a description. This description is visible to the visitors to your site.
ItemsClick add_circle_outline, and select types of form fields. (Forms typically contain more than one field.) For details about configuring each form field, see Types of form fields.
ActionsClick add_circle_outline, and select actions that occur when the visitor submits the form. For details about configuring submission actions, see Form submission actions.
Success MessageEnter the message that a visitor sees when successfully submitting the form.
Error MessageEnter the message that a visitor sees when an error occurs after submitting the form.
