EmbedForms is built to helo you embed forms without the need to have IT skills. That said, embedding widgets is super simple and anyone can do it quickly and easily with just a few clicks.

To embed a form widget just:

  1. Click on the ‘Widgets’ menu, click on Settings and choose one of the form widgets formats.
  2. To determine the widget position click on the drop-down menu and choose where you want the widget to appear
  3. Click Save
  4. Copy/paste the single line of code into any div on your web page.

And that’s it. You have a fully responsive web widget in just a few clicks.

We’re also fully aware of different website’s designs; that’s why EmbedForms offers an option for custom widgets so you can modify the default widget and change the:

  • Background color 
  • Text and icon color
  • Widget label
  • Pop-up and page options for form display

The pop-up option will display the form as a smaller window, while the page option will redirect the user to a new page where the form will be displayed in full screen.

There is no need to struggle with HTML elements or write CSS because the system generates the code automatically and once you paste the code, the widgets appear immediately.

Here is a video tutorial so you can follow the process easily.

Customize the form and the widget

advance features to customize forms

When it comes to customization, the widgets’ design is not the only one that can be modified to fit your needs. 

As we all know by now, the form itself can be changed in many ways as well. Users can add multiple input fields and configure our premade templates with file upload fields, text fields, drop-down lists, add checkboxes, change form input labels, and add other essential form elements for gathering the correct data. 

Branding is super important, so in order to reflect it perfectly, users can change the submit button copy, apply your background image, add placeholders, or use the custom CSS option if they do have some coding knowledge. 

Export and share responses

Form widgets are perfect for gathering web feedback, fetching impressions, reporting bugs, asking for product validation, or finding out where your customers are in their buying journey. 

The form data is gathered in one place from where you can either share it with your clients, monitor the text input by yourself, or export the data in CSV format and include it in Google Sheets, Excel, your CRM, or use our integration options. 

This user input can help you gain a better and deeper understanding of your customers. 

Furthermore, with form widgets, users can put forward form submissions when convenient for them, but you can also ask for personal information like a phone number without looking intrusive. 

Since form widgets are attached on the side at the bottom or the top of your website, users will manage to find it very quickly and not get frustrated with looking for it. This type of approach is good for increasing the response rate as well.
