Editing or Adding a Form
In the left-side menu, click on Forms:
Click the " New" button to create a new Form, or click on an existing Form to edit.
This is the name of the form so it can be identified throughout the site.
Requiring login to view/fill out
By checking this box, only parishioners logged in to their Tilma site will be able to view and fill out/submit the form.
Who to notify
This is where you specify who will receive an email notification when a form is submitted. You can enter multiple email addresses separated by commas. For example:
Edit the Thank you page and email
When users submit a form, they will see an on-screen thank you message and will also receive an automated thank-you email. Clicking on each section will expand to reveal its editor to customize both.
For the Thank you page, you can add text or any other page content using the Quick Insert Tool (see Intro to Content Editing to see how to use).
For the Thank you email (also considered a confirmation email), you can edit the subject line and the body of the email. This email is sent out in Plain Text format.
To edit the form itself, click on the Editor tab at the top of your screen. Here you will see a variety of form components to choose from. When you click on a component, it will be added to the bottom of your form. Once the component has been added, edit the settings to your liking and click Save to place it in your form. Once a component has been saved, you can click and drag to reorder, as well as reopen it to make edits.
