Choosing "Create a Form" will prompt you to confirm if you want to create a new list or use an existing one while choosing "Import a Form Template" will permit you to import a fully configured template. Once you have chosen an option, you will be navigated into the Designer.

Creating a new list

If you choose to create a form and then choose to create a new list you will be prompted to enter the title of the list, this should be unique.

If you are creating lists from scratch it's best practice is to name any newly created fields without using special characters such as spaces, e.g. FirstName. This approach will make configuring forms much easier such as when using JavaScript in the form at a later point.

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.

Using an existing list

If you choose the "Use existing list" option then you can select the list you want to configure and after clicking "Next" you will be navigated to the Sintel Forms Designer.
