External Submissions

Customers using the Enterprise version of our Sintel Forms platform can use a feature called "External Submissions" to share their forms with external users (people outside of their organisation with no access to their SharePoint environment). When enabled, this feature will permit you to share a form URL with anyone and they will be able to submit that form.

  Note

The External Submissions features does not permit external users to access the conversations or workflow features.

To set up External Submissions you simply launch the Sintel Forms Designer -> Settings -> External Submissions.
