Benefits of creating the Custom Form:
  • Embed custom forms on webpages and seek feedback in-context
  • Generate leads out of your help site visitors
  • Let your website visitors know you care about their opinion
  • Brands that ask for feedback voluntarily garner more brand loyalty

Create Custom Form


1. Drag and drop the custom fields that you want to include in the form. While the custom fields Name, Email, and Phone are self-explanatory, other fields are described below:

  • Upload: Allow a customer to upload a file (.doc, .docx, .pdf, .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .gif, and zip). For example, they can upload a screenshot of an error message.
  • Multiple Choice: Provide multiple options to your customers to choose from. For example, know which of your products the customer is writing for.
  • Large Text: You can use this field to get detailed feedback.
  • Checkbox: Allow your customers to select more than one option from the available ones.
  • Dropdown: This field provides several selectable options in a dropdown; for example, country, state, etc.
  • Single Text: This is a text field with a limit of 255 characters.

2. By default, the Custom Form template has three fields included for you to start with. You can rearrange the fields in the order of your liking. Also, a Custom Form must have a minimum of three fields.
3. Enable Customize Button if you want to customize the Submit form button. You can change the button color and text.
4. When you’re done adding the custom fields, click Next to move to the form settings.


Step 4. Settings allow you to add recipients for your Custom Form. The screenshot below shows you how.

3. Click Next to move to the Launch tab.


Step 5. The Launch tab lets you decide how you want the Custom Form to appear in your knowledge base. The screenshot below explains how you can do it.

3. You can further choose its position between ‘middle right’ and ‘bottom right’.
4. When you’re done, click Save to launch the Custom Form.
