Formsite

The Formsite modules allow you to watch, retrieve, list forms, form items, and form results in your Formsite account.

Getting Started with Formsite

Prerequisites

  • A Formsite account

In order to use Formsite with Make, it is necessary to have a Formsite account. If you do not have one, you can create a Formsite account at formsite.com

Note

The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Make scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

To connect your Formsite account to Make you need to obtain the API Key from your Formsite account and insert it in the Create a connection dialog in the Make module.

1. Login to your Formsite account.

2. Create a form if you have not created one already. Click Form Settings > Integrations > Formsite API.

6. In the Server field, enter your account server name. For example, if your Formsite account's URL address is www.xyz.formsite.com then, the server is xyz.

7. In the User Directory field, enter the directory details. For example, if your base https://fs4.formsite.com/api/v2/vSkOfz/forms/xhqi55uznt/, then your user directory is vSkOfz.

8. In the Access Token field, enter the API Key copied in step 3, and click Continue.
