After you finish building your web form, you share it with your citizens, so you can finally start collecting submissions.
There are two ways you can share your web form.
- By copying and pasting the URL in the live view.
The URL (or link) in the live view is different than the one in your editor because it will take your users right to the finished form. If you copy and paste the URL from your editor, then your users will get an error message and this can cause confusion. In the image below, the blue highlighted URL is the one you want to copy and paste to share with your users.
2. By selecting File then Share.
This provides you with a small shareable link for you to copy and paste to share with your users that will bring your users to the completed version of your form. You can also choose to send an email invitation from this screen as well.
How to Share a WebForm as an Analyst User
Analyst users are limited users which means they will only have access to view a form, view submissions or process submissions if the form author grants them permission by going to your Permissions settings.
After the Analyst user is granted access to view the form, the analyst user will be able to login and see the Forms Manager. In the Forms Manager, the Analyst user will be able to click on the form they want to share and will see an eye icon populate. The eye icon represents the view form option.
Clicking the view icon will redirect the Analyst user to the Live View of the form. Once in the Live View, the Analyst can click and copy the URL link to share with any applicant(s).
