Learn More About the Save Button – WS Form

SavePRO

The save button allows a website visitor to save the progress of their form and come back at a later date to complete the form. The ‘Save to Submissions’ action needs to be active on the form with the ‘Save’ event enabled.

The actions that run when the ‘Save’ button is clicked are all configured in the ‘Actions‘ side bar. To access this, click the ‘Actions’ icon at the top of the page.

WS Form - Field Settings Icon

Basic

The basic tab contains settings that the majority of WS Form users will need to control a field. The settings are as follows:

Label

This label is used to identify the save button in the WS Form form builder.

Hidden

If checked the field will be hidden on the form. It can be shown again using conditional logic or your own JavaScript.

Help Text

The help text setting enables you to add smaller text under the field to assist the website visitor in completing that field.

As well as inserting plain text into this field, WS Form also provides extensive functionality for adding character and word count information. Click here to learn more about this functionality.

WS Form variables can be entered into this field.

Accessibility

ARIA Label

Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) defines ways to make web content and web applications more accessible to people with disabilities.

This setting enables you to define what text is made available to ARIA applications. This would, for example, provide a screen reader with specific text to read to someone with a disability.

The value of this setting defaults to your field label. If you would like to change this, enter a new value.

WS Form variables can be entered into this field.

Advanced

The advanced tab contains additional form attribute settings that provide further control over how a field is rendered.
