Add a Contact Form to Square Online
Adding a contact form to your website makes it easy for visitors to get in touch with you while keeping your contact info private. You can also use forms to allow visitors to request services and information, ask for a custom quote and more. There are several pre-made form types that you can either use as-is or customize to meet your needs.
Add a Form Section
To get started, open the website editor and choose a page from the Page list to display your form. Next, click the Add Section button on the left and scroll down to Communicate. Click Form and choose an option from one of the following:
Contact Us: A basic contact form.
Catering Request: A form to request catering, with fields for date, time, location and number of guests.
RSVP/Registration: A simple form for responding to an event invitation.
Custom Quote: A form to allow visitors to request a quote for services with fields to provide details.
Appointment Request: A form to allow customers to provide their contact information along with a preferred date and time.
Event Request: A form for customers to provide details on an upcoming event, with fields for date, time and number of guests.
Wholesale Inquiry: A form for customers to request wholesale information, with fields for contact information and product details.
All of the forms are customizable, so pick the one that best suits your needs and click Add to place it on the page.
Customize Form Fields
If the default form fields work for what you need, you can skip this part. But you can also edit, add, rearrange and remove questions.
To edit questions:
Click on any item in the list to open the settings. All form fields allow you to change the label or mark it required. Some also have additional options, like Dropdown and Multiple choice, which allow you to create a list of items. Click the back arrow on the upper left to return to the form settings.
To add questions:
Click the Add a question button and select from the following options:
- Multiple choice: Adds a list of items for customers to pick from. You can customize the text, add more choices and allow users to pick more than one option at a time.
- Short answer: Adds a text box suitable for brief written responses.
- Long answer: Adds a text box suitable for longer written responses.
- Dropdown: Adds a menu with a list of customizable choices.
- Date: Adds a date picker with a calendar to choose a specific date.
- Time: Adds a time picker with a list in half hour increments. Visitors can also type in a time.
- Address: Adds a field to enter a street address.
- Email: Adds an email address field.
- Phone number: Adds a field for phone number.
- File upload: Allow customers to attach a file to their form entry.
Follow the same process to add more question types as needed. Again, each field is customizable – simply follow the steps above to edit questions.
To rearrange questions:
Click on an item in the questions list and drag it up or down to change its position.
To remove questions:
Click the “. . .” icon across from the question name and select Delete. If you accidentally delete a question, you can restore it using the undo arrow at the top of the editor window.
