Common Questions

Adding Form Elements

Form elements are the basic units of a form. They're where visitors will fill in their information. You can add form elements to collect text, emails, dates, multiple choice answers, numbers, and more. To add a new form element, open the Content menu, click on Form Elements, and click Add New. Then select the type of element you want from the dropdown.

Common Questions

Advanced Options

Requiring Payments

POWr Forms accept payments through PayPal, which means customers can pay with their PayPal account, or with their credit card. You can accept payments through any POWr Form. Just go to the Content menu, open Require Payments, and switch the toggle to On. A new set of options will appear for you to fill out. The default settings will create a one-time payment, for selling a single product at a single price. However, you can also set up the form to accept donations or create recurring subscriptions where a customer pays you automatically every day, week, month, etc. You can also add pricing options with a multiple choice question (see above), so that customer choices will change the final price.

Common Questions

Connect to MailChimp

You can connect POWr forms to MailChimp, to easily create or grow your mailing lists. All you need to do is click the Connect to MailChimp button in the Connect menu, and select the correct MailChimp list. Then go through your Form Elements and enter the desired MailChimp MERGE tags in the box provided to send info to that MailChimp list.

Common Questions

Conditional Logic

Conditional logic is a tool that allows you to create smarter forms that respond to choices made by your visitors. New form elements are displayed based on a visitors selections to previous questions. You can think of conditional logic as a tree, where each fork leads to a different set of branches. The rules you create determine which branch a visitor goes down, based on the choices they make. Currently, rules can only be made for answer to multiple choice types of questions. Conditional logic is a premium feature, and is not available in the free version of POWr Forms.
