Simple Form Element

The Simple Form Element simplifies the process of creating and adding forms to your site and sharing user-entered information. Creating forms is as easy as entering a form name, determining whether a message or a page displays to users on form submission, and optionally creating an email list to distribute and share submitted form content.

Site administrators can view all forms in use at a site, the number of records created from form submission, and the pages using them. See Simple Forms in the Administrators Reference.

CommonSpot provides tools for assessing and improving the readability of forms by assistive technologies. See the description of the Forms View in the Contributor's Reference. and Defining Default Text in Edit Controls in the Administrators Reference.

For more information on how forms are interpreted by assistive devices and best practices for making forms and other content accessible to all users, see Developing Accessible Content in CommonSpot in the Administrators Reference.

The following chapters and sections of the Administrators Reference provide additional information about using Simple Forms:
