Starting from scratch

Only Owners and Administrators of an organization can create forms.

Once logged in to Cognito Forms, users can create an unlimited number of forms for their organization. To create a new form:

  • Click the New Form button on the My Forms list page, and select the Start from scratch option.


  • Next, you will be navigated to the Build page for your form. Give the form a title, which will display at the top of your form. You can rename your form at any time; just keep in mind that the form's public Url address will change along with it.

  • Customize the form by adding as many fields as you like.
    • Add a new field by clicking on one of the placeholders and choosing the field type from the left-hand pane.
    • There is no limit to the number of fields you can add.                                                                                        

  •  Save your changes by clicking the Save button at the bottom of the page.

  • Once the form has been saved, it will display on the forms home page alongside the rest of your forms.
