Create an email contact form

A contact form is the most common type of online forms in websites today.
The contact form enables a communicational channel between the website owner/manager and the website users.
Being an email form means that all the data entered in the form is automatically sent via email to the form owner – alerting a new data entry. In addition to the email, the information is also stored in a data management tool and may be edited and viewed.

Here are steps to create a contact us form:* the FormLogix template gallery offers readymade contact us templates for those who do not wish to create one from scratch.
1- Enter the form creator.
