From the forms tab, you can create, edit and share forms. Your form will take on the same name as the project it's connected to, but you can change the name of your form and add a description to give directions or information to form submitters.

Forms also come with two default questions, name and email, to ensure you get the contact information of the requesters. You can choose to delete these questions when creating your form.

Deleting the email question means that submitters won’t receive the email confirmation associated with their submission.
