What are Public Links?
Public Links makes Webforms accessible to data collectors without requiring them to have a username and/or password. This is achieved by creating a link to a particular form that would allow collectors with the link to access Webforms through his or her, or their computer and collect records. We see this as a great way to improve existing workflows or expand your use cases.
PLEASE NOTE: This is currently only available through Webforms and not the iOS or Android app.
How do I get Public Links?
Each company comes with 100 monthly uses for free. To purchase additional Public Link submissions, please reach out to support either via the chat below or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I create a link?
PLEASE NOTE: In order to create a link, you must either be a Server Admin or Company Admin with form builder rights.
To create a link, please follow the instructions below.
STEP 1. From the Mega Menu, click Form Builder under the Forms tab.
STEP 2. From the Form List View, click the Public Links icon.
STEP 3. Click the Public Link option.
PLEASE NOTE: The Access with Login option will provide you the Webforms link, but will require a username and password just as the current Webforms does today.
STEP 4. Here you'll be given the option to Set Password. This is not required.
If you choose this option, the person you send the link to will be required to type in whatever password you set before accessing the form.
Click Generate Link.
You'll see the link has been generated. You can now copy and send it to those you wish to fill out the form. Don't forget, if you set a password, send the password to those people as well.
