Create a form

Here's how to create a form:

  1. Click the Form icon in the menu on the left. 

  2. Click "CREATE NEW FORM" at the bottom of the form list. The "Choose Form Layer" dialogue will appear. You can either create a form based on an existing layer in your map site, or you can define a new layer by clicking the "Define a new form" button.

  3. Click "DEFINE A NEW FORM". As an example, you can create a form for pothole sightings. Add a Name and Description and decide on a Form Type.

    Note: The "Form Type" option tells the system what kind of layer you are creating. In this instance we need a "Point" layer. But in other instances, creating a "Form linked to existing layer" comes in handy too. Check out the article Creating linked tables for more details.

  4. Click Save. 

    The form will open in edit mode. Here you can add the questions (fields) that you'd like in your new form.


  5. Click New Question to add some questions. Type your question, field name, and select a field type. Click Save and repeat for each question.


  6. Click "DONE" when you are finished. The form you just created is now available in the main list of forms and is immediately available to users with appropriate permissions.
