Custom Labels for Better Forms & Clearer Results

Are your form results hard to read because of unclear column headers? Do you know you can make custom labels? For example, a common item for many forms is an agreement item that the visitor must check before proceeding. These include registration forms with a Terms & Conditions agreement or order forms with an acknowledgement of the return policy.

The display of these items in results and reports can be problematic. If you add a descriptive question then it looks repetitive, but if you choose to use a blank question then your item is recorded with a simple number. We solve that problem by offering Custom Labels settings that let you create more useful forms and reports.

WordPress Forms the Easy Way with Formsite

Luckily, Formsite forms are easy to embed into your WordPress site and have none of the drawbacks that plug-ins have.
