I use a U.osu site to organize tools, information, and training materials for the Digital Union student staff. Recently, I implemented a form in the site for staff to submit documentation to me in the event that we encounter a particularly unruly guest.
What I’m emphasizing in this post however, is not the topic of the form, but how to make a form, and a few of the really nice features of Formidable, the pre-installed WordPress plugin for building forms in a U.osu site.
- If you don’t already have a U.osu site set up, it’s super easy to do.
- Once you have your site set up, activate the Formidable plugin.
- From there, the best way to learn it is simply by clicking through and test driving it on your own. Refer to Formidable’s knowledge base for more info.
- If you get stuck, email U@osu.edu to get connected with support staff.
Previous to learning how to use this tool, I was using an embedded Google Form. This is my first time using Formidable, and I’m pretty happy with how it looks. There are a lot more form field types available than in the Google Form I was using, and way better integration into the site. My coworkers and I have already thought of a lot of potential uses for this functionality, so I’m excited to see what they all come up with! Comment below with your idea …
