A form is a way for Sonia administrators to replace paper-based forms with a form that is completed by a Sonia user online in their web browser. The user does not download or upload the form – it is completed on a smart phone, tablet or desktop web browser.
The information entered on the forms by users such as students, supervisors or site staff is retained securely in the Sonia database. Like a paper form, different parts/questions may be completed by different people, but unlike physical forms, it is available instantly – without waiting for it to be carried or sent from one person to another.
If you would like to further customize your form, whether it is changing the color of the action button or customizing (or removing) the gridlines on a table, you can do so using CSS (guide). Note that this is outside the scope of Sonia Support, so consult your IT or Marketing department if you have any questions.
Sonia Forms can be quite powerful. This "getting started" guide explains the basics, and the "power of action buttons" guide shows what can happen upon submission of a form.
It is always good practice to test your form before you ask anyone to complete it.
