Quick, Custom Form Creation for Community Colleges

Juggling student support, admissions, and faculty needs? The team running community colleges often has to wear many hats, and managing a mountain of paperwork only slows everyone down! Here at CollegeNET, we get it. That’s why we created the simplest, quickest way for colleges to build, edit, and publish customized forms. Here’s how it works: 

The Power of Custom Forms for Community Colleges

Traditional form creation is often costly and time-consuming. It requires increased burden for IT departments, limited customization options, and a process that feels stuck in the past.

You know the drill: you need a new form, and fast. But the current process is slow, inflexible, and doesn't quite fit your specific needs. Maybe you've even considered a solution, but it requires paying for a CRM you don't need. CollegeNET’s custom forms creation can be your secret weapon. Create forms that perfectly capture the information you need, in minutes! Streamline your workflows, improve data collection, and finally ditch the paper chase—all without the requirement of an expensive CRM. 

CollegeNET's Custom Form Solution: Design Exactly What You Need

CollegeNET empowers you to be the master of your forms. Our user-friendly interface allows you to design exactly the forms you need whenever a new need arises. Forget about generic forms that don't quite deliver the message. Whether it's an application form for a new program, an event signup for a student club, a faculty recommendation for a scholarship, or anything in between, CollegeNET lets you build forms that perfectly match your specific needs.

CollegeNET's custom form solution empowers you to:

  • Streamline workflows and free up valuable staff time.

Forms Branded to Reflect Your Institution

Easily Embed Forms on Your Website

Reaching your audience is key. That's why CollegeNET makes it easy to embed your custom forms directly on your college website. This eliminates the need for visitors to navigate to a separate location to fill out a form, streamlining the process and improving user experience.

Easy-to-Use Features for Streamlined Workflow

 We believe functionality is key. That's why we've packed our platform with features designed to streamline your workflow and make form creation a breeze. Here are some features admissions teams all over the world enjoy:

Drag-and-Drop Functionality: Drag-and-drop allows you to easily add or delete fields within your form, ensuring it captures exactly the information you need.

Move Fields to Optimize Form Flow: Arrange the fields in your form in a logical order that facilitates a smooth flow for users. This helps ensure clarity and reduces the risk of errors when filling out the form. 

Personalize Field Style: Control the appearance of each field within your form. Choose from a variety of field types, including text boxes, drop-down menus, checkboxes, and more. You can even customize the size and layout of each field to create a user-friendly and visually appealing form.

Name Individual Fields for Clarity: Assign clear and descriptive names to each field within your form. This helps users understand exactly what information is required and reduces the chance of confusion.

No Coding Required: CollegeNET's intuitive interface eliminates the need for any coding knowledge. This means you can focus on creating the content of your forms rather than getting bogged down in technical complexities. Our platform empowers anyone, regardless of technical background, to build powerful and effective forms.

Customizable Fields: CollegeNET provides you with full control over the data you collect through your custom forms. Our platform offers a wide range of field types, allowing you to gather the specific information required for each form. Here are just a few examples:

  • Text Boxes: Collect basic information like names, addresses, and phone numbers.
  • Drop-Down Menus: Present users with a pre-defined list of options to choose from, streamlining data entry and improving accuracy.
  • Checkboxes: Allow users to select multiple options from a list.
  • Radio Buttons: Present users with a single choice from a set of options.
  • File Uploads: Enable users to upload documents directly through the form, such as resumes, transcripts, or supporting materials.
  • Date Pickers: Provide users with a user-friendly calendar interface to select dates.

Utilize Your Own Data Sets and Add Field Instructions: CollegeNET doesn't stop at basic data collection. You can even use your own data sets to populate drop-down menus or other form elements. This can save time and improve data accuracy by eliminating the need for users to manually enter pre-defined information.

Add Instructions: CollegeNET allows you to add clear and concise instructions to each field within your form. This helps users understand what information is required and how to fill out the form correctly. This can be particularly helpful for complex forms or those requiring specific formatting.

Create Rules and Logic for Smart Forms: Create conditional logic within your forms, so that the form adapts based on user input. For example, you could create a form that displays additional fields or questions only to users who select a specific option in another field. This streamlines the user experience by presenting users with only the information relevant to their situation.

Efficient Collaboration: Circulate drafts for review before publishing a form to ensures everyone involved is on the same page and provides an opportunity for feedback before the form goes live.

Preview Edits: Preview edits before publishing your form to ensure everything looks and functions as intended before your audience interacts with the form.
