    Are our updates on the form automatically shown on our form on our website, or do we need to re-embed the form?

    Lastly, as I continue to edit save this form, do I need to re-post the code into my website?  Or will my updates automatically update to my website?

    This actually depends on the embedding method that you are using on your website.

    I will list the basic groups that you can use:

    1. source code embed

    2. JavaScript (js) embed

    3. iframe embed

    4. feedback form

    5. ligthbox form

    Except the first (the source code embed) option, all options will load the form as it is in your account, meaning that if you make a change to the form and do a refresh on your form, the change is present.

    The source code embed code will allow you to make the changes without them being shown on your embedded form, which is good if you want to be able to "play around" until you finish setting it up, and it allows you to apply your own changes to the form as well, but this is the only embedding option that requires you to update the code on your website each time you make a change, no matter how small the change is.

    Hope that this helps, but please do let us know if you happen to have any further questions and would be happy to assist with them :)
