What is FormsBuilder?

FormsBuilder is part of SiteBuilder, the University's web publishing tool. You can use it to create and publish forms on your web pages – e.g. to collect survey responses or event registrations – and download submissions in CSV, XML or PDF formats.

If you have a University of Warwick trading account, you can also use FormsBuilder to make an online payment form linked to the University's online payment system.

FormsBuilder has a similar level of security to email. In general, you should not use it to collect highly sensitive data. So, you need to decide carefully if the data you wish to collect is safe to do so in this format.

If you have a particular form that requires sensitive handling, please send a request to the ITS Web Team ([email][email]) to have your form updated to use HTTPS (HTTP Secure). This provides end-to-end encryption of form data from the user to the SiteBuilder database. Note that HTTPS forms do not send detailed responses by email. This is by design, as email is inherently insecure.

To make a form, you use the form page template – one of the default templates in SiteBuilder. The form page template contains all the tools you need to create, edit and maintain a form.
