From a form designer's point of view, a form is a collection of pages containing information and input fields that end-users will navigate through to perform a task (for example to complete and submit an online application).

Some pages in this collection are mandatory and cannot be deleted as they carry certain functionality. 

When a form is created from a "Blank Form" template, it includes 4 pages: 

  • Start Page - a mandatory page, main purpose of this page is to inform users what the form is for and provide a button to start the form. No input fields are allowed on this page as the form is not instantiated till the user clicks on the Start button.
  • Data Entry Page (named First page) - a page you can modify (rename it, add information and input fields, define validation, add styling, etc.). You can add as many such Data Entry Pages to a form as necessary, placing them between Start and Submission pages in the order they will be presented to users. Data Entry Page can be deleted at any time.
  • Submission Page (named Last page) - a special type of Data Entry Page which contains a button that allows users to submit completed form. This page is mandatory, it can not be deleted. 
  • Confirmation Page (named Completed page) - a page which displays a message to users when the form is successfully submitted. No input fields are allowed on this page as the form at this stage is already submitted. You can delete this page.

At the very least a form will contain Start and Submission pages. An example of such form would be a simple Request form with few input fields. You can create such form from "One Page Form" template.

Form is built from form components. Pages are special type of form components, they work as containers for other components and represents sections of the form that are shown to users one at a time. You display information on a page using Asset form component and collect user information using Input Field components (Text Field, Choice Field, etc).  See {Form Components} for more details.
