Over the years, our team has created some highly functional (and great-looking 👀) templates. But what templates stand out among the rest?


We’ve put together a list of some of our top templates that you may want to add to your tech stack – in hopes they can elevate your own automation processes:

  • Simple to use. We’ve covered the groundwork. Try out one of these templates and build a form in no time.

  • Easy to distribute. You need to get your form in front of people, and the more tools you have to do that in the way your customers need, the better.

  • Customizable. Your company’s forms are an extension of your brand, so customize the colors, branding, and layout of your form to make a good impression on your customers.

  • Useful analytics tools. The data you collect is nothing without the tools to analyze it. We make it easy to export entry data.

Basic Contact Form

You don’t have to be a coding expert to create a form that works for your business. And starting with a basic contact form gives you a way to get to know more about your customers’ needs.

Potential customers are often attracted by ways to get in contact with your business. And creating custom contact forms is a great way to give your brand a unique voice in the market. Our basic contact form template acts as a starting point to collect requests and feedback.

It’s also easy to customize and modify, embed on your website, and start accepting responses. And don’t forget to set your notifications to automatically alert the appropriate staff members whenever your form is submitted!
