Setting up a Custom Form
Requires Pro Plus or higher
Available with the Advanced Forms feature, Custom forms allow you to build forms with any combination of supported fields (including text fields, select fields, and even file upload fields). Your custom form can then be set to email you its contents, send a payload to Zapier or Make (formerly Integromat), append a record to an Airtable, or send its contents to a custom URL. Here's how to create one:
Click Add Element
Click Form to create a new Form element.
Set Type to Custom.
Choose what you want the form to do when submitted:
Send Email Emails the form's contents to your Carrd account email (or an alternate recipient email). Send to Zapier Sends the form's contents as a payload to a Zapier zap (via a Webhook). Send to Make Sends the form's contents as a payload to a Make scenario (via a Webhook). Send to Airtable Appends the form's contents to an Airtable (as a new record). Send to URL Sends the form's contents to a URL (via a POST, GET, or AJAX request).
Click the first field (labeled "Untitled") to expand it.
Assign the field a short, descriptive Label. This label will appear either within the field itself or directly above it (depending on how you've styled your form).
Set the field's Type. The following types are currently supported:
Text Accepts a short, single line of text. Accepts a valid email address (eg. "[email protected]"). Text Area Accepts multiple lines of text. Select Accepts a single option chosen from a dropdown menu. Checkbox Accepts either a "checked" or "unchecked" state. Phone Accepts a valid phone number. Number Accepts a valid integer, decimal or currency value. File Accepts a single file upload (up to 16MB). Note: currently not supported by the "Send to Airtable" action. Hidden Accepts a single line of predefined text.
(Optional) Configure any options specific to the field's type.
(Optional) Check Optional to make the field optional.
(Optional) Assign the field an ID. If omitted, an ID will be automatically generated based on the field's label.
(Optional) Assign the field a Default Value.
Click Add to add additional fields, repeating steps 7 through 12 for each.
