LearningCart provides an integrated form builder to allow you to easily build forms to capture general information on your website or client feedback on your courses.
To add a new form, navigate to Forms -> Manage Forms in the left-hand navigation menu of your LearningCart site. Click ‘Add Form’
Next you will complete the following form setting information:
Form Name: The name of the form you are adding.
Template: The content template you would like to use.
Allow Updates: When checked a customer's responses will be remembered and can be updated by them in the future.
Require Login*: When checked a customer must be logged in to submit or view the form.
Single Submission: When checked a customer can only submit the form a single time.
Shared: When checked this form can be shared across courses. This means if you use the same form for multiple courses and wish to capture unique feedback for each course - you should uncheck this item.
Points: You can choose to apply points for the completion of this form.
Image: The image that will be shown next to the form if the form is part of a course.
Submit Button Text: The text that will be displayed on the button to submit the form.
Email Notification List: The list of users that will be notified when the form is submitted. Separate multiple email addresses with a semicolon.
Description: The description that will be shown next to the form when the form is part of a course.
Welcome Message: The message that will be shown at the top of the page when a customer views a form.
Form Thank You: The message that will be shown on the page when the customer submits a form.
*If you want to allow only one submission for a course completion (ie. a feedback form) you should set the "Require Login" and "Single Submission" checkboxes on the form.
Once you have entered the required information, click ‘Add’ to save your changes. You can now add form fields to complete your form.
Forms can be embedded in both content pages or templates. To embed a form, use the format: where X is the ID of the form you want to embed.
The form tag supports the following additional parameters (optional)
- titleTag: The heading tag to wrap the title of the form in (for example h1, h2, h3, h4, h5)
- buttonClass: The css class to be applied to the submit button
- submittedText: The text to show when the user submits the form.
The following is an example of an embed with all the optional parameters populated: [form id=1 titleTag=h3 buttonClass=btn submittedText=submit]
