Go to the Toolset -> User Forms page and click the Add New button at the top. A wizard will guide you through the steps.

First, give a name to your form.

In the next step, select the main form options. This includes selecting a role for the created user, what to show after submitting the form, and other.

Designing the user form

Next step, you need to build the form’s content. Click the Auto-generate form content button and a dialog will appear. Select the fields you want to use in your form.

The dialog lets you reorder and disable fields. You cannot disable mandatory fields and they have a lock icon next to them.

When you are done, click the Insert button. Auto-generated fields are inserted into the form contents.

Naturally, you can manually edit the auto-generated content. For example, you might change the labels for the inputs, insert generic fields or display certain sections conditionally.

If you need to add custom CSS styling or JavaScript to your form, expand the sections at the bottom of the Content editor.

E-mail notifications

The final step of the form-creation wizard allows you to add e-mail notifications.

When the user form is submitted, it can send notification emails. For example, when users register, you will want to send them their username and password, or a reset password link.

You can add multiple email notifications to be sent to different recipients.
