Your first form

Adding your first form and displaying it on the frontend is simple:

  1. Enable the form type you want to use in the Eightshift forms Dashboard
  2. Create a form in the WordPress admin
  3. Configure the form and add the fields needed
  4. Add the Form picker block in the place you want to show the form, and select your newly created form


By default none of the integrations are enabled.

To enable one, go to the Dashboard page of the Eightshift Forms admin settings.

Create a form

To create a form, open the WordPress admin, find Eightshift Forms in the sidebar, then click on Add new form.

An editing screen will open, with a selector for the form type. If you don't see a form type in the selector, make sure it's enabled in the Dashboard.

After clicking the form type, the Form block will be automatically added, the form initialized, and some fields may be added by default.
