1. Use the template

Head to the template page and click "use this template". If you don't have a Paperform account, you will need to sign up for a free trial first (no CC Details required).

You can also start a form from scratch if you would like; however, using a template is a great way to get off the ground and familiarize yourself with Paperform.

2. Change the name, cover and text in you form.

It is simple to edit or remove the heading of the form by clicking on the text. This is the same for any body of text throughout the form. Likewise, if you wish to edit any of the questions on your template, simply click on the question text and do as you please.

If you want to make a body of text shorter or simply delete it, you can highlight the text as though you are working on a word doc. You also have the option to change the positioning of your text, the font and font size.

This template has a cover image added to give a personal feel to the form. If you wish to replace or remove, click on the image and a toolbar will appear above. Click the picture icon to replace the image with a file of your own or simply click the 'X' icon to remove the image entirely.

The look and feel of your buttons and questions can be edited from the 'UI Elements' tab, while you can change the back-ground color and even upload a back-ground image from this tab as well. Have a play with making this form more 'YOU'.

This particular template has the 'Appointment' question type. We are using this to prompt the submitter to choose a day they would prefer to have their vehicle serviced. You have the option to edit the booking set-up, change your availability and allow your submitter to choose a time rather than day. Furthermore, you can connect your Google Calendar to the Appointments, this will then mark already booked time/day slots as unavailable.

After a client has chosen the date they wish to receive their vehicle service and submitted the form, we want to send them an automatic confirmation email. This email should contain the details of the submitter as well as any responses to questions you deem important.

Then click 'add email' follow the prompts and create your automatic email. You can pipe answers from your submitter into this section such as their email or name. Find out more about answer piping.
