Create a list or import a Form Template

The first step in using Sintel Forms is to choose whether you want to start from scratch by creating a list or to import a pre-configured Form Template.

 

Creating a list from scratch

If you are creating lists from scratch it is best practice is to name newly created field names without using special characters (which include spaces), e.g. FirstName. This approach will make configuring forms much easier such as when using JavaScript in the form.

You can always change the display text of a field to more suitable one by either changing its title directly within the SharePoint list, or within the layout screen in the Sintel Forms designer.

 

Importing a Form Template

Form templates enable you to get started quickly and get your first form up running in a matter of minutes. Our current record is 3 minutes!
