Caution: Note when upgrading AForms from v1 to v2.

Form Behavior

Forms built by AForms behave differently depending on the parameters.
This article explains how to control form behavior.
The contents correspond to AForms1.2.1.

Enabling estimation calculation

AForms can be used only for estimation calculation or for sending customer information (That is, contact form). Of course, you can do both.

To enable estimation calculation, use “Details” tab in the form builder. If any components are added in this tab, the estimation calculation will be performed.

Two navigation styles

In the estimation simulation, you can select “Flow format” or “Wizard format” as your navigation style.
If you choose “Flow format”, it will be an ordinary form that a user enters while scrolling down the page.
When you select “Wizard format”, a modal dialog will appear, allowing to a user enters one item at a time. It’s like a Windows’ installation wizard.

You can set this on “Navigator” item in “General” tab in the form builder.

Enabling form submission

To enable form submission, use “Attributes” tab in the form builder. If any components are added in this tab, a “Send” button will be displayed and a user can send input to the server.

The input data sent to the server is stored in the WordPress database. To view this, select the “Orders” submenu of “Form” in the WordPress admin menu.

Displaying confirmation screen

AForms can display a confirmation screen before a user submits the form. To display the confirmation screen, set the “Display Confirmation Screen” item to “Display” on “General” tab of form builder.

Sending thank you mail

To send a thank you mail to the customer, add “Mail Address” component to “Attributes” tab in the form builder.
The contents of the mail to be sent can be set on the “Mail” tab.

Displaying thank you page

AForms can display the thank you page after a user submits the form.
To display the thank you page, set “Thanks URL” item on the “General” tab of the form builder.
