Overview

Simple Forms are a type of Form for quickly constructing basic functions with a sleek, modern design. The Simple Form Designer contains the most commonly used Form components. Users must consider if a Simple Form supports the correct component to either collect their desired data type(s) let alone perform the desired functions with or upon them.


Creating a Simple Form

  1. In a Designer Folder, select CREATE FORM.
  2. Navigate to and select Simple Form, name the Form. Select CREATE.
  3. In the Simple Form Designer, notice there are two options for the Layout, Grid Layout and Vertical Stack. Leave the Layout as Vertical Stack for this example.
  4. Drag and drop different controls onto the Form. The Form in this example has two TextBoxes (Name and Email Address), a Date Time Field (DOB), a File Upload (Resume Upload) control and two Button control with one labeled OK and the other labeled CANCEL.

    As controls enter the Simple Form, a dialog appears to give the control a Data Name and Label. Once the control is named, a Label automatically appears above the control.


  5. Save and Close the Form.
  6. Add the Form in a Flow via a Show Form step. Connect it to the Start and End steps.
  7. Select the Form and navigate to Properties panel > INPUTS. Change all inputs's mapping type to Ignore to allow user submitted data.

Debug

  1. Select Debug from the top action panel; this will automatically save the Flow. 
  2. As the Debugger runs, notice the Label change. The Flow is successful.
