Forms Manager

Forms Manager

This is the first page that you will reach after clicking “Registrations” on the left menu. It will allow you to quickly access form related options, submissions, as well as create, edit, and delete functions for the forms. After a new install the area will contain four cards: two cards for sample forms, one card for login form and one to quickly add a new form.

Form Cards
Each form is displayed as a square card with important information displayed on it. Form Manager will show a maximum of 10 form cards at a time. After that it will show pagination on the bottom to navigate to other forms. Form cards are arranged in descending order based on their creation date. It means the form you created most recently will show first.

Each form card has a:
Checkbox – to Multi Select forms for Delete and Duplicate batch operations
Form Title – Read Only
Shortcode – To quickly copy and paste inside a page, post, or widget
Submission Counter – Displays total number of Submissions received for that particular form.

Clicking it will take you to the detailed Submissions page. You can configure it to display specific submission counts such as count only for submissions received today or this week etc.

Add A Quick Form Card
This feature was introduced in version 2.0. It allows Admins to create a new form but without going through the long list of options present in usual form creation page when accessed through “Add New” link in the top bar. The benefit being, admins can first create Custom Fields and then come back to Form Settings page through “Settings” link or by clicking on icon on the Custom Fields Manager. This workflow can be more productive when you want to configure form setting options dependent on custom fields, or when you want to stick with default form settings.
You will see a text box on this card where you can enter Form Title. Enter the title and hit “Add” button to initiate a new Form Card visible immediate on right.
