    Can I edit the source code if I have a knowledge of html to make my form more bespoke?

    Asked by BlueprintStudios on June 05, 2013 at 08:32 AM

    We have created a form but I would like to make some small changes. I can see the source code but would like to edit it slightly. Is this possible?

    You can do it by download source code in order to edit it as you want :)


    To download source code follow this simple step:


    1. Open your form
    2. Click on "Setup & Share" tab
    3. Click on "Embed Form" on top menu
    4. Click on "Source" icon

    then you will get a window like below:


    Now you must click on the link that you see near the arrow.

    Thank you. Once I've edited it how do I replace back into your site if I'm not embedding it for use on ours? We're still wanting to use the link you provide to be sent out in emails.
