Forms are a great tool for requesting additional information from your portal users after completing the initial session submission form (speakers) or intake form (exhibitors and sponsors).
Create A Form
Navigate to Portals on the navigation panel and select "Forms" at the top of the page.
Select the blue "Create Form" button and add the form's title, as well as select whether the form will be assigned to individuals or groups. Once complete, select the orange "Save & Build form" button.
People = Speakers
Groups = Sponsors & Exhibitors
3. Edit the portal form's three sections: Form Set Up, Form Questions, and Form Settings.
Form Setup - The name is what is available to the event admin, and the title is available to portal users.
Form Questions - Collect information about the individual or group by adding a section title, description & instructions, and form questions to collect data.
To add a question, use the button "+ Add Question" at the bottom of the page.
You can search for existing questions or create a custom question.
Form Settings - A confirmation email can be set to send to form submitters once a form entry has been completed.
This is how your tasks will be viewed within the portal.
Assign Forms To A Portal
Now that you have created your form, it is time for you to assign it to the respective portal.
Note: Forms can be assigned to more than one portal.
Within the Portals module under "View All" hover over the portal you would like to edit and select "Settings".
Navigate to the "Collect Form Submissions" box and select the button " Assign forms".
Select the form(s) you would like to assign to this portal from the list of forms you have created. Once done, click the orange "Save" button at the bottom right-hand corner of the pop-up window.

View Form Results
When a form has been completed by a speaker, sponsor, or exhibitor, results can be viewed within your Sessionboard event.
Know who has completed the form.
In your module (speaker, sponsor, or exhibitor), you can edit your dashboard view by adding the reporting field for your form. This will inform you who has completed the form and who still needs to. Remember to save the view when you are done.

Navigate to Ports > Forms
Hover over the form you have created and select "View Results".
