Add, move, and edit the fields to solicit data. See the Inline help for more info.
If your form solicits personal information, create a statement. The wizard can help write the legal text.

Preview the statement and save.

Use the "Edit" button to edit the different parts of the form, and style the form's look and feel.

This option lets you personalize the form with images and colors.

See the form's URL on the 'Options' page.
A form cannot be made public when:

- The form has expired
- An administrator has disabled the form
Publish, share, expire, delete, etc.
Use this page to manage your form.
Options are divided into categories, each explained in the Inline help.
Editing a public form¶
When you edit a public form's fields, the form is made temporarily unavailable. People will see a 'Come back soon' message.
You may add, edit and delete form fields.
You cannot edit form fields that have already been answered.
The answers that correspond to deleted form fields are themselves not deleted, and can be consulted on the 'Answers' page.
Use the Answers page to view, filter, edit, delete and export the answers
You may edit answers, one field at a time.
The people who answer your form can "Go back to the form and change the answers" when you enable that option.
All editions are recorded in the form's log. Follow the log entry link to see a complete history of the changes made to an answer.
Click on the check box to bookmark answers for your convenience.
When you have finished collecting data from the form, there are two good reasons to delete the answers.
Unused copies of your user's data are strongly discouraged.
You have a limited assigned amount of disk space. Deleting form attachments saves space.
See graphs for:
- A chonological history of each moment the form was answered
- A graph for each numeric field
