With a single tool, you can create forms for a vast array of uses — from online donations, volunteer forms, lunch menu order forms, job applications, event RSVPs, online inquiries — and anything else you can dream up. Forms are easy to build with drag-and-drop functionality, template creation, cloning, and the ability to save commonly used elements.
