The BizForms module enables non-technical users (content editors) to easily create and publish on-line forms. These forms can be used to gather structured data from website users. A typical example of such form is the Contact Us form.

 

Administration interface of the module is located in CMS Desk -> Tools -> BizForms. Once a BizForm is created via the user interface, it can be added to a live site page. This can be done either via the WYSIWYG editor, or by means  of the BizForm (on-line form) web part or widget.

 

Each BizForm has its own separate database table where submitted data is stored. The submitted data can be viewed and managed in CMS Desk -> Tools -> BizForms. Data records can even be exported to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in this part of the user interface.

 

You may want to notify the person who is responsible for management of BizForms data when a new record is submitted. For this purpose, you can configure the form to send automatic notification e-mails about new records. The user who submitted the new record may also be notified that the record was submitted successfully and that it will be processed soon. This can be achieved by configuring autoresponder e-mails.

 

Access to BizForms may be restricted, so that only members of selected roles can perform certain operations with the forms themselves or with the data in them.

 

Layout of each form is fully customizable. You may also customize behavior of the BizForms module with custom code.
