An excellent use of Formsite forms is as a landing page for collecting leads. Landing pages are often cornerstone content where customers can get the most relevant content regarding the site’s products or services. Another common landing page strategy is to place unique content that includes a contact form where visitors can request more information.
Regardless of whether the page is available to anyone who reaches the site or limited to specific campaigns, tracking the visitor’s referrer is essential. The referrer is the URL from the page where the visitor linked to the landing page. Knowing where the leads come from can help to optimize the lead generation campaigns and grow the overall traffic.

A primary factor for many Formsite customers is the ability to instantly make a new form that contains all of the required parts. Web forms are fundamentally web pages after all, and setting up the file structure can be troublesome and time-intensive if you don’t do it all the time. An essential and powerful part of the web page is the HTML Head area. This group of HTML elements contains many of the page’s critical links and definitions.
How to customize the HTML Head area:
- Go to the Form Editor
- Click the Style button
- Click the Advanced Link
Some examples of the data included in the HTML Head include:
- Meta tags for defining the page’s title, description, keywords, author, etc.
- Links to external scripts and style sheets
- Analytics tracking code that should appear on every page of the form
- Custom form preview image and content information

A powerful and popular Formsite feature is the automated system for connecting forms, which we call Workflow. We have recently published some Workflow enhancements to help make this popular feature even more usable. For those who are unfamiliar with the Workflow feature, an example of a Workflow is an approval process:
- The form visitor submits the first form,
- Triggering an email to the supervisor with a link to the second form,
- That the supervisor approves or denies, then submits the second form
- The supervisor’s answer optionally returns to the original visitor and/or forwards to others for further processing.
The Workflow enhancements for the most recent release includes:
- New Workflow templates
- Ability to map images & Signatures
- Automatic Workflow folders

One of Formsite’s most popular features is the ability to send an email after every successful form submission. Our Notifications allow form builders to send multiple emails in a variety of formats and completely customize the message and results sent. A common use for the notification message is to create a custom email receipt with the visitor’s answers.
Passing the form answers to the email allows form owners to make personalized messages with the visitor’s responses and is possible using the form items’ pipe codes.

A new feature recently added to all Formsite service levels is the ability for multiple file uploads with a single File Upload item. This feature addition eliminates the previous need to add multiple File Upload items to accommodate multiple file uploads.
This feature enhancement comes as a giant step forward in form usability for customers who require multiple files. Many customers have forms requiring multiple attachments for each form result. Before now, the File Upload item limited each item to one file per upload.
Not anymore! See how to configure the File Upload item for multiple uploads ›
A new feature recently released is the ability to customize the form’s link preview. This preview information enhances the link to the form in many online places like social media sites and blogs. The preview information can help increase the amount of interest to viewers and gives form builders more places to communicate their message.
