Steps

In Lime Forms you can build your user-friendly forms in what we call Steps. Often with user information at the first step (name, email etc.) followed by a step where the user make its selections (products, services etc.). Lastly Lime Forms have a confirmation step per default, containing a summary of chosen fields.

Actions

What will happen when a form is filled in and the user clicks on Send we have chosen to call Actions.

For your forms you can choose from four different Actions:

If you, as a customer, want customized Actions for your form, you are more than welcome to contact us with your wishes!

For your forms you can choose to have multiple Actions if needed.

For example, it could be that a confirmation email goes out to the user who completed the form, while at the same time an email is sent to the company customer service alerting them that a user just completed the form.

Automating predictable processes

If you can identify predictable processes that forces the user to take unnecessary detours through customer service before ending up in your internal systems, there are a lot of time and energy to be saved if you can make theses processes digitally with smart integrated forms.

This is made possible through the ActionCreate a Lime Case“, which lets users handle errands through forms placed on your website writing data directly to your Lime CRM, signed and ready with BankID and receipt.

Webhook

Putting a Webhook as Action on your form means that when someone completes the form, a POST call will be made to the specified URL with the form’s data sent as JSON.

In other words, webhooks are a useful way to get data sent to an external system in near real time. Thus, with webhooks you can build integrations with other systems to get even more functionality via your forms.

The call will be server-side, if you want to secure your endpoint, it is possible to enter a key which will then be sent with the call under the name simpliform_auth and can then be validated on the receiving side.

How do I get the form on our own website?

Embedding a form on your own website is easy!

Navigate to the form you want to embed, and scroll to the bottom of Settings.

Script and code snippet to copy and paste into the place on your web where the form should appear

Click </> Embed, too see the short code snippets that you should copy and paste into the place you want the form to be visible on your web.

The first code snippet for the JavaScript is preferably pasted between the <head>-tags on your website.

If you plan on placing multiple forms the same page, you only need to put the JavaScript snippet once in the <head>-tag.

This code needs to run only once. Try to put it in a master template that is loaded for all pages, preferably between the <head></head>-tags.

<script src="https://demo.lime-forms.se/js/ce/latest"></script>

This code should be placed where the form should be generated, and are unique for each form.

<simpli-form form-id="YourUniqueFormID"></simpli-form>

Why can I not see “Live preview”?

If you can not see “Live preview” when creating and editing your forms, it is probably because the browser window is too small. When getting below half of the screens width the “Live preview” will disappear since there simply isn’t enough space to display it.

Enlarge the browser window and all functions will be displayed.

Manage received submissions

There are several useful alternatives when it comes to managing received submission through forms. Read more about them below.

Export all

You can download all received submissions that have been stored in the database by clicking the “Export All” button located at the page for Received submissions. This will save all submissions to a CSV file. With this file you can compile data from the form and see statistics linked to the answers.

For each individual submission that is stored in the database, there is a public link that can be shared to end users.

Show BankID receipt

If BankID has been activated for the form, a link to the BankID receipt will be displayed below details for received submissions.

See Managing BankID Signatures and Receipts for more information on Submissions to forms with BankID activated.

Show submission as JSON

If you want to display the submission as a JSON file, it is possible to do so. This can be a good option to get all fields and the complete submission forwarded to other systems.

My forms get password protected by accident

Password saved for the Lime Forms login can find its way here, a known bug in some versions of Google Chrome

A know bug when using Google Chrome to create your forms is that your saved login information can be filled in in the wrong places.

If you experience this issue, getting your forms wrong with password protection and a saved email address in the field “Send the user to another URL when the form is complete”, it is because Google Chrome fill in the saved login information for that site.

Redirect the user to a different URL when the form has been submitted, filled in with an email address. If you do not have a valid URL here, you can not save the form.

To view and manage saved passwords, you can right-click in the password field and select ‘View all saved passwords‘ to delete them there.
