Site

Watch Form Submissions

Triggers when a new form is submitted on the specified site.

Netlify comes with built-in form handling. The build bots do it by parsing your HTML files directly at deploy time, so there's no need for you to make an API call or include extra JavaScript on your site. For more information, you can view the documentation on https://docs.netlify.com/forms/setup/#html-forms.

Code an HTML form into any page on your site, add a netlify attribute or data-netlify="true" to the <form> tag, and you can start receiving submissions in your Netlify site admin panel.

Here's an example:

<form name="contact" method="POST" data-netlify="true">
  <p>
    <label>Your Name: <input type="text" name="name" /></label>   
  </p>
  <p>
    <label>Your Email: <input type="email" name="email" /></label>
  </p>
  <p>
    <label>Your Role: <select name="role[]" multiple>
      <option value="leader">Leader</option>
      <option value="follower">Follower</option>
    </select></label>
  </p>
  <p>
    <label>Message: <textarea name="message"></textarea></label>
  </p>
  <p>
    <button type="submit">Send</button>
  </p>
</form>
