Advice and answers from the ClickFunnels Team

The Input Form element is the basic building block of a form in ClickFunnels.

You can build a form from scratch simply by adding a single Input Form element (set to Email) and a submit button.

To add the Input Form to the page, click on the Add Element button in an empty row or click the orange circle with the + symbol to add the field below the selected element.

This will bring up the Elements menu.

1) You can search through all the elements

2) Select the Input Form element

3) You can give the element a custom name (optional)

4) Cancel (if you want to close the menu without adding the element). You can also use the Esc key.

5) Add the selected element to the page. You can also double click the element in the menu to add it to the page. 

After you have added the Input Form to the page, you have quite a few different options.

Hover your mouse over the element. You will see a few different icons.

1) The gear icon will open the settings for this element. You can also click on the element directly. You can also hover your mouse over the element and hit the E key on your keyboard.

2) This icon will duplicate the existing element with the same settings. You can also hover your mouse over the element and hit the D key on your keyboard.

3) This will delete the element. You will receive a popup confirming that you want to delete the element. Please note, there is no Undo.


4) Add a new element directly beneath this element. You can also hover your mouse over the element and hit the A key on your keyboard.
