What's New in the CMS
The media chunk now has the option of selecting different colors. If you are unfamiliar with the media chunk, refer to the CMS 101 page to learn about it. Now, you will be able to select from a variety of colors to use in the media chunk.
In the Form Builder, you can now create custom "Statuses" for the responses. For example, you can create a response for "Paid" or "Unpaid", which would only be viewable by the CMS Administrators. Learn more about the response statuses by watching the How To video.
The form builder will now allow a user to enter a custom amount. In the past, the form builder only allowed specific set amounts. Now, a person can enter a custom amount. For example, you could create a form to accept donations. A person can now enter in a custom dollar amount of their choosing for the donation amount. Learn more about custom amounts in the tutorial video.
New to the CMS is the ability to add a hyperlink to the footer of your site. For example, say you want a link for people to use to sign up for a newsletter. You can now have a link in the footer that says "Sign up for our newsletter". Learn about this new feature by watching the How To video.
Now in the Form Builder, you can redirect existing Form Builder forms to different pages on your website. What does that mean!? Imagine one of these scenarios.
You have created a form, and have hyperlinked that form in an e-mail. That e-mail is then sent to hundreds of people. Then you realize that you linked to the wrong form.
Someone has saved the URL of the form in an e-mail, bookmark, or from an old social media posting. It might be a year later before that form is accessed again. That form is old and outdated.
You can now enter a redirect URL. If you enter a redirect URL, anytime someone accesses that form it will redirect them to whatever page you specify.
You are now able to embed a form into a content item!
In the past, a form always had to exist as a page in itself.
Now you can create a form, and place it on a page wherever you'd like!
