FORMS: CRM Intake Forms (Self Registration)
What is an Intake Form?
If you want your prospective Clients to be able to add themselves into your CRM by filling out a form, then Intake Forms is your answer!
The concept behind Intake Forms is that you can post them anywhere on the web, and those who complete the Forms are added into your platform.
Intake Forms cannot be embedded inside the Portal. They are only meant to be used via the non-logged direct link, or by embedding them into a website.
Creating Intake Forms
You can create custom Forms using pre-existing fields, but you can also create Custom Fields on-the-fly during creation.
To get started, navigate to Forms.
By default, there are two Forms already in the list; a registration for for Prospects and Clients, respectively. You can use these right away, or you can build your own custom Form.
To create a new Form, click +Create Form and choose Create a CRM Intake Form in the window. Or, you can use the dropdown arrow to choose this option without an extra step as shown above.
Form Type & Title
Confirm that the Form Type you have chosen is correct, and give your Form a Title.
Form Fields, Validation & Order
Choose a field from the dropdown menu and click +Add Selected Custom Field. You can click and drag each created field to order them the way you'd like. To edit the Name of the field, click the pencil icon. To toggle additional options for the field, click the gear icon. Note: The default fields (First Name, Last Name, and Primary Email) can only be renamed.
Pre-Fill Value will display "example text" if left blank. This is useful if you prefer a particular format; i.e. (xxx)-xxx-xxxx for Phone Number.
Required will make filling the field mandatory before submission.
Hidden will hide the field from the user. Hidden fields can be used to store unseen contact data; i.e. the ID of a user on the website they are submitting the Form from.
Role: You can choose either Client, Prospect or Lead. Any time a Contact complete this Form, they will be entered into your system as the Role you specify here.
