Just like adding any other media to your lessons, you'll see a row of buttons under the text box. To add a form, start by clicking the +form button.
* Note: Forms are a Pro feature, so if your course isn't upgraded yet you'll be prompted to do that at the beginning.
Then you can begin adding items to your form. Right now we have 'short answer', 'multiple choice' and 'file upload' to choose from.
Short Answer: gives the participant a text box where they can type an answer your question.
Multiple Choice: participants can choose their answer from a list you provide. You can specify whether they can choose only one answer or multiple answers.
File Upload: gives the participant a spot to upload a file (like a PDF or an image) up to 100MB.
This is what that example form would look like to a participant. As always, the buttons in the form will be your custom branding colours if you have that feature enabled. In this case I've chosen to restrict the submissions to only once. I'll cover that next!
As with most sections in lessons, you can click the little gear icon on the right side of it to view any other options it might have. In this case, you can set a title for your form (optional) and choose to restrict submissions to once. If you lock after submission, that means a participant can only fill out the form once. If it's not locked, they will be able to submit the form as many times as they want.
What happens when someone fills out my form?
When someone submits a form in your course, you'll get an email notification about it. It will tell you what form it was and the name of the person who filled it out. There will also be a button to view the submission.
If you don't want to received emails about this, you can turn off notifications in your profile settings.
You can view your form submissions by visiting the 'stats' page of your course. Choose a form to view a list of all submissions and click on a specific submission to see what that participant said.
New entries will have a label so you can keep track of what you've already reviewed. On an individual entry page you can even send an email to the participant if you like!
