We all know that there are key building-blocks that make up many forms, but their creation might not be immediately obvious in Web Form Builder. Below are some examples of how to create some common form questions:

Question: "What motivates your studies?"

WFB field to use: SDB - Persona

Question: "How did you hear about us?"

WFB field to use: Enquiry Source

Question: "What is your Level of Study/ Year of Entry/ Course of interest/ Subject of Interest"

WFB field to use: The Academic Block

Action: Restricting courses on your form.

WFB field to use: Add tags used on Courses in the Courses & Subjects app to the "Filter by tags" section in the Courses accordion of the Academic Block.

Action: Restricting Subjects on your form.

WFB field to use: Deselect Subjects from the Subjects accordion of the Academic Block. Please note, this is incompatible with Smart Subjects.

Question: "What's your address?"

WFB field to use: The Address Block.
​Please note: A form cannot have two "country" fields on it, so if you have already used the Country block, you must mark the Address block's Country field as inactive.

Question: "What is your Enquiry?"

WFB field to use: The Enquiry Block

Question: "Please send us your portfolio link"

Action: Redirecting the Student after the form is submitted or changing the form submission thank you message.

WFB field to use: The Tools under "Submit". You can also choose if you want the redirect to stay within the iframe, or if you want the whole page to change.

Action: Amending the Form's Title.

WFB field to use: The Tools under the Settings Cog.
