Once you have finished adding the form fields you require, you will now need to add a thank you page for the user to be redirected to.

To create a thank you page:

  1. Click on the Web Pages component.

  2. Click on the 'Add Page' tab.

  3. Fill out the fields and add a message in the editor e.g. Thank you for contacting us.

  4. Set the page status to 'Hidden' and 'Hide from Site map and Search'.

  5. Once you have finished your changes click on the 'Save and Close' button.

Your form is now ready to add to your website! Please always test the form on the website for yourself, to ensure it is set up correctly and that the form submissions are emailed to the right address/addresses.
