The webform content type lets you add forms to your pages to collect input from users.
The webform content type is not available on all pages. Normally, you have to attend a webform training in order to have the webform content type appear on pages that you administer. Contact Bob Ryan at x2642 with questions.
If you have access to the webform content type, it will appear in the list of types when you click Add on a page. Click on Webform.
One the initial screen, you must enter a title for the webform. You can also optionally enter some body text that describes the form or gives the user some general instructions.
Also on the initial screen are the standard items--such as Pages, Who can edit or delete this content, and Scheduling--that are associated with every piece of content on the website. You can ignore these for now.
