How To Make a Web Form
Table of Contents:
Choose your form template
In Nimble, you have the option to follow a preset template, with pre-selected fields ready for use. Alternatively, you can start your web form from scratch and customize every aspect of it to your specific needs. Either way Nimble gives you the choice to adapt to your unique business requirements and preferences.
To get started, click the Web Forms tab then choose "Add New Webform". Nimble will launch a new page and you can then choose either a blank template or from one of the suggested templates.
When you choose a preset template, there will be predetermined fields that are specific to that form.
For example, if you choose the “Support” form template, you will see the following set of unique fields:
Don’t worry, you can alter the fields to fit your specific needs.
When ready, click "Continue to Build Form".
Customize your form fields
Now that you've selected your form, you can now customize it to your liking.
In the left side panel, you'll see the default fields available to add to your web form. If these fields do not meet your needs then you can always create a new field. The available options for Custom Fields are Single Line text, Multi-Line text, Checkbox, Dropdown, and Hidden Fields.
For example, if you wanted to create an opt-in field, you could use the Checkbox custom field and set up the fields accordingly.
If you need to edit a field, just click the pencil icon and you’ll be able to change any of the suggested fields. You can also delete a field or add a new one by clicking on "Add Field here" by dragging and dropping from the left side panel.
When you add a field, a panel on the right side opens, giving you the option to customize the field, changing its type, label, and name, as well as determining whether the field should be required or not.
When ready, scroll down and choose "Continue to Style Form".
Design your form's style settings

Finalize your form settings
Once you have personalized the appearance of your form, it's time to finalize it and get ready to use it. In Form Setting, at the top of the page, you'll find the option to name your form. Remember, the form's name is only visible to you and will not be seen by your contacts. This makes it a great opportunity to use a descriptive label or an informative name to help you identify the form in your account.
Post Submission Page
In this section, you can select what should happen after a user has submitted your web form. You can choose to send them a message thanking them for their submission or redirect them to a different page.
You may also customize the thank you message, if you choose that option, or select where they should be redirected to by adding a URL. This allows you to personally tailor the experience for your users and optimize the webform submission process.
Form Response Statuses
In the 'Form Response Status' section, you can select the status of contacts who filled out your form. New responses automatically show as 'New' status, and you can add any additional statuses that align with your needs by clicking the 'Add New' button."
This could also be modified to fit a more specific scenario by providing more details about the possible statuses.
Track Google Campaign Parameters
With our Google Analytics campaign parameters integration, all the necessary data will be saved automatically. When your web form submission includes relevant parameters, such as utm_campaign, utm_medium, etc., they will be recorded along with the response.
This allows you to optimize your Google Analytics reporting and track the performance of your web form, as well as provide more accurate and detailed analytics on your campaign's impact.
