  1. Yes, maybe you discussed this already but I am not proficient in this topic. I am a novice who created her first web site and very proud of it! Please help me in plain English to figure out how to do the following:
    1. Client hits picture for download
    2. Gravity form is displayed and client fills out the form
    3. New page is posted to inform that client will receive email with link to download a brochure
    4. Email is sent with link
    Please help me to figure out what I have to do for this project step-by-step. Thank you!

  2. Step 1. Build the form you want the client to fill out by going to New Forms and creating your form using the available form editor tools to add and arrange fields on your form. I can't tell you what to add because I don't know what information you want to capture, so you'll have to pick the fields you want and arrange them on your form.

    Be sure to edit the Form Settings to name your form and then select the Confirmation tab to type in your confirmation/thank you message that they will see when they submit the form. The Confirmation message is where you would inform them they will receive an email with link to download a brochure.

    Once finished, save your form to create it.

    Step 2. Select Notifications from the form editor toolbar to configure the admin notification and the user notification autoresponder. You configure the various settings such as the From Name and From Email Address, etc. It's up to you what to use here.

    In the Message Body for the User Notification you would type the message you want to send to the user. If you want to include a link to a brochure download, you'd have to upload the brochure to your web site and then create an HTML link to that file in the Notification message.

    The tools are pretty easy to use once you get started. I suggest you play around with them and try different options, etc. The best way to learn something is to roll up your sleeves and just try.

    Carl - Thanks for that, for us novices, but it's still not entirely clear - sorry - i added the embed url to message body, but i get the long wordpress link, not the 'blue underlined label' that i can give it. i don't want that long url in the message body. how do i do that? it's not clear from the notifications form. Please help as soon as you can. Thanks so much!! RA

  4. I don't know what embed url you are referring to.

    If you want it to be a link where you don't see the URL and instead see a label that they click on then you have to write HTML to create a link like in the example below.

    <a href="http://yourlink">Your Label</a>

    The Notifications support HTML. If you want to create a link then you need to type in HTML.

    Thanks Carl! Yippee - get to learn html too! ;-) The embed I was referring to was the selection I picked from the drop down list on the notification form. I added the html you had above (amended with my info obviously) - thanks for including the example code! Can't let you know if that worked the way I needed until the system refreshes - it's slow today. Thanks for the prompt reply!
