Forms is a form builder app for the Elefant CMS. Admins can create forms by adding fields, assigning validation rules, and selecting form handling "actions", then embed them into web pages through the Dynamic Objects dialog.

Note: Requires Elefant 1.1+ (on master branch)

Status: Beta

The form builder is now feature-complete, but requires more testing to be considered stable.
