Obtain a direct link to an online form

 

It is easy for you to obtain a direct link (URL) for each of your online forms. This includes forms you have created locally and also any official forms (SuperForms) supplied on the Sporty platform by your governing body. See step 1 below.

In addition, if you want people to be redirected to a specific page after they complete one of your forms, you can set a 'return address' within the direct link (URL) for your form to force this behaviour. See step 2 below.

1. How to create a link to a form

Go to Dashboard > Online Registrations

Go to the folder your form resides in, then click the link button beside the name of the form. This is the button that looks like links of chain (dark green button in the top right of the image below).

This displays the link (URL) for the form. You can copy the address of this link by clicking the black Copy Link button to the right of the link address.

Now you can paste this link into an email, or Facebook or display it elsewhere online. Each form has a unique link, so whenever someone clicks on your link they will be taken to your form. You can test this yourself by pasting the link into your web browser address bar and seeing that it opens your form. Whenever someone submits your form, their record will be added to your database for that form. 

2. Create a link with a return address (URL).

Go to Dashboard > then Online Registrations

Go to the folder your form resides in, then click the link button beside the name of the form. This is the button that looks like links of chain (dark green button in the top right of the image below).

This displays the link (URL) for the form. Now add the address of the page you want people to be directed to once they submit your form. Enter this into the input box beneath the heading, 'Optional - include a return URL that people will be redirected to once they submit this form:' (point 1 in the image below).

Then click Update Link (point 2 in the image below).

This will modify the link for you to include the return address. You can copy the address of this link by clicking the black Copy Link button to the right of the link address (point 3 in the image below).
