Let’s dissect how you can create and embed these forms into your website.

What are Digital Forms?

These forms are used to collect and validate any type of data, such as email addresses and credit card numbers. These make the gathering and distribution of information easier for both users and organizations.

Note: You can share digital forms not only through your website (which we will discuss below), but you can directly share them with one or more external users if you wish.

Why are they called Dynamic Forms?

As opposed to traditional digital forms, which are static, dynamic forms may change according to information provided by the user. In this way, it helps guide the user according to the parameters you determine.

For example, in a loan application, the company giving the loan may want to ask for additional information if the amount to loan is higher than “X” amount. In this case the interactive form will automatically add new fields once the user entered an amount higher than “X”.

You may create as many form templates as processes you have.
