1. Use the template

Visit the template page and click "Use this template." If you do not currently have a Paperform account, you can quickly sign up for a free trial first (no CC details required).

You also have the option to begin a form from scratch; however, using templates is a great way to get off the ground and familiarize yourself with the Paperform form-builder.

2. Edit the form's name, text, and images.

It is simple to edit or remove the heading of the form by clicking on the text. This process is the same for any body of text throughout the form. Likewise, if you wish to edit any of the questions on your template, click the correlating text. If you want to make a body of text shorter or delete it, you can highlight it as though you are working on a word doc.

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 click the 'X' icon to remove the image entirely.

You can add a body of text, image, or question anywhere on your form builder by merely clicking the area you wish to create. A small toolbar will appear on the left; from this, you can choose what you want to add to your form by clicking the corresponding icon.

Furthermore, you can easily duplicate, delete, move, or configure any questions on the form by clicking the correlating icon found on the right-hand side of a question field.

3. Change the look and feel of your form.

Now that you have changed your form's basics, it is time to make the form more personal to you and your business. In the top right corner of your form editor is the 'Theme' icon (colored teardrop). Upon clicking this, you will enter your theme settings; from here, you can edit the form to feel more personal. Simple changes such as the font, size, and color of your text can be configured from here, while you can edit your text's appearance in more detail from the 'Typography' tab.

The look and feel of your buttons and questions can be edited from the 'UI Elements' tab, while you can change the background color and even upload a background image from this tab as well. Have a playmaking this form more personal.

4. Set up your subscription sign-up.

Now we need to ensure that you will be receiving payments for your cooking classes! Firstly you will need a payment gateway account to make this possible. By default, we used a Stripe account to show you how to create a subscription plan for your form. If you want to achieve this with Braintree, check out how to create subscription plans with Braintree.

You first will want to create or sign in to your Stripe dashboard; from here head to your products, where you will see the option to create a product. Click the 'Add a product' button to create a subscription plan, follow the prompts, edit the fields to suit your needed subscription plan, and finalize.

Now that is set up, fantastic!

From here, we want to go back into our form editor dashboard so we can connect the subscription. Click on 'Configure'> 'Payments' and connect your Stripe (or Braintree) account.

Now go into the 'Subscription' question settings by clicking on the configure icon that sits on the question's right-hand side. You will now see available plans for subscription; choose the correct plan. Ensure you scroll through the available settings for Credit Cards, Payment Options, and Subscription Settings to be on the safe side.

5. Now put through a test submission

Click the 'view" button to go to the live form. Fill in the form and submit it. You can access submissions via the dashboard.

6. Organize where to meet for sessions. (Google Hangout)

Now that your form is ready, we will need to organize where you will meet your students for the live video yoga sessions. By default, we have used Google Hangouts is free and will be readily available to all your students. Another great option would be to use a live Facebook video link or even a paid Zoom account.

Ensure you have a Google Hangouts account and create a video chatroom; copy the URL link of this chatroom to easily send it to your current students and link it into the automatic after submission email we are about the setup.

7. Set up an automatic after submission email.

After a customer has submitted their booking and made their payment, you will need to send them a confirmation email containing details of their session and a payment receipt.

To set up a confirmation email that will automatically send once a customer has submitted their form, simply go into After Submission > Emails. Then click 'add email', follow the prompts, and create your automatic email. You can pipe answers from your submitter's responses into this section, such as their email or name.

Upon submission, the user will receive their details, a receipt, and the chatroom lesson's link.

You can take control of your emails, reporting, goals, and more. To connect, simply go into After Submission > Integrations & Webhooks, Click on the HubSpot icon, and follow the prompts.
