    You can test your form in 2 ways:

    1) You can use preview option on the builder and send a test submission to your form:

    On the preview page you can directly fill the form and use submit button to send a test submission

    2) You can use ' open in new window' option on the preview lightbox:

    Or you can use directly the URL of your form to send a test submission:



    I sent a test submission and your form  is working:

    After sending submission to your form, you can check your email notification and submissions. You can see your submissions in the submission view page. Here how you can reach that page:
