Embedding Forms

Last edited 9/8/2020
The Form Builder is a versatile and customizable tool for collecting data available to all Tentaroo clients. Forms must be embedded on a secure and mobile-responsive Tentaroo webpage before being shared with end-users. Councils that don't subscribe to our Website Module are provided a free "minisite." You can access the CMS of your website or minisite by clicking on the Websites button of Tentaroo's admin interface.

Please note that forms will not work properly if embedded outside of the Tentaroo system. Forms must be embedded in a Tentaroo-powered site; we offer a free "minisite" to all clients who don't have a site with us.

To embed a form:

  1. In Form Manger, click on the name of the form you wish to embed, and then click "Code." Location of embed code in Form Builder: when an individual form is selected, tabs appear below it, including "Code"
  2. Click once in the Javascript Code box to highlight all; then right click and copy.
  3. In the CMS for your website or minisite, create or navigate to the webpage you want your form to appear on. We recommend using a Calendar Event if the form is for a banquet or similar event.
  4. In the page editor, scroll down to the Embed Form card and expand.Embed Form Card of the CMS Page Editor with sample form code
  5. Paste the form code in the section underneath "Enter Code."
  6. Save.

Once a form is embeded, any changes made in Form Builder will automatically apply to the form on your webpage; you do not need to re-embed forms.

 

Making the Most of a Form's Page

Once a form is embedded on a page, the content section, galleries, contacts, and map sections can all be used to give visitors additional information and promote an event or campaign. In particular, a form's title and description are much more easily formatted when presented in the content section of a webpage, as opposed to within the form itself. If you take advantage of this option, return to your form's editor and click "Hide Title and Description" under Form Properties to avoid duplicate information.
