When you need to collect information, learn people’s preferences or gather feedback, there’s nothing better than a form. Online forms builders enable you to create forms to collect user data. They allow you to customize the fields of the form based on your requirement like name, company, email ID etc. You can also add fields which allow users to upload files before submitting the form. Once you build out the required form using one of the form builder tools, you can host the form on a page or get a script to embed the form on a page on your website/blog. When users submit the form, the data is stored by the selected service and can be accessed by logging in. This is an easy way to create forms on your website to capture user/lead information.
