Setting up forms

How to add custom fields and view leads on Tilda
Forms are blocks with fields where visitors add their information such as an email address or a telephone number. It is also where you collect this information.
Blocks with forms can be found in the Block and button category. You can find more of them in the Cover category.

You can find ready-made forms with multiple fields in the Forms category in templates.

Find out how to add and customise fields in forms and how to see leads on Tilda.
Adding fields in a form
One form can contain an unlimited number of fields.

Add them in the Content menu under the Fields tab.
Each field in the form has an individual card where you can specify field type, field title and subtitle, a short hint that describes the value of the field, a variable name and the required field.
Title — Write down the information you require such as 'Your name', for example. This text will appear above the field.

Subtitle — If necessary, add a description or instructions such as 'Enter your first name and surname', for example. This text will appear above the field after the title.

Hint — Be specific about the text you want to appear in the field. This text is visible inside the field before it's filled out.

Required field — Check the box to make the field required.

A variable is set by default, depending on field type. If email marketing services require a specific name of your variable, simply change it. For example, Mailchimp and Bitrix24 both have pre-set variables.
Forms support several types of variables for different types of input data. Descriptions, uses and other good-to-know information about form types can be found in the table below:
Customising the look of your form
Customise the form in block settings. If the form has several fields, you can edit the fields and accompanying texts, customise buttons and add animation.
Editing entry fields
  • Text for hints and titles — colour and saturation.
  • Colour of checkboxes, radio buttons and other elements.
  • Border style — colour, bracketing, thickness, use of the lower border only.
  • Value hint style — option to leave the hint visible or not.

Button settings

  • Background and border colour for the normal and hover states.
  • Opacity for the normal and hover state.
  • Text — for the normal and hover state, typeface, font size and saturation.
  • Animation speed when hovered over.

General settings for the entire forms
  • Form width (we use a 12-column grid at Tilda). Column width and left margin are set in the columns. Most often, the form is 8 columns wide with a left margin of 2 columns.
  • Form title is not shown onscreen. It is sent to data services and helps to determine the source form of the lead.
  • Animation — 6 options.
Viewing leads and form submission errors
After form fields and receivers have been set up and activated, leads are sent to connected data services. You can see them, check the data is correct or find out a reason for the form submission error in My Project leads.

Go to Leads on your My Project page.
All leads from all forms are kept here, regardless of whether a third-party data service is connected or not.

If you click on a lead, a box with detailed order information will appear.
Lead details are stored for a month. To keep them longer and to be able to edit them, connect one (or several) of 15 data services for forms.
To view form transmission errors, click Errors log. You will be able to see the data, service type and error message.
