Feedback Forms

Use this component to create feedback forms, which allow you to collect information from users and send that information to an email address of your choice.

Things you will need before creating this form:

  • Thank you web page (create a new page)
  • "Mailto" email address (email to receive submissions)
  • "From" email: feedback@ryerson.ca (Mandatory)

Description of form components:

The form section of the sidekick contains a set of components that can be used together to create the actual form.

You must drag the 'form' component into the page first.  From there, you can drag other form components (such as address, radio group, etc. ) into the 'form' component - between the Start of Form and End of Form areas.

Need to know:

  • Form components should not be included in Tabs or Accordion components.
  • Only one form per page
  • Form fields are NOT RESPONSIVE
  • Form component width can only be set in the components with a Width field. Width is set in pixels at current time.
