Forms are built using the SilverStripe UserForm module.

Page Types

This module introduces 3 new page types:

  • Consultation: display a form, optional reports and ranking
  • Consultation category: allow to group consultations
  • Consultation landing page: holds categories and consultation


Consultations can display "reports", a graphic way of displaying data from the form submission. Reports can only be based on EditableMultipleOptionField (e.g DropdownField, RadioField...). To create a report, on a Consultation page , head to the Report tab, create a new report with a title, save, then choose a field to base the report on.

Report Types

Out-of -the-box, you can display report as a doughnut chart (powered by Chart.js You can create new report type by extending ConsultationReportType and implementing:

function render($controller, $data) {}


Comments can include any field from the consultation form. To include a field in a comment, simply tick the option include in comment when creating the field.
