Web Forms (Form Builder)

About Web Forms and Form Builder

Stanford faculty, staff, and students who have a full-service SUNet ID and AFS space can use the Stanford Web Forms service to make contact forms, short surveys and polls, instructor evaluations, and other forms free of charge. No knowledge of HTML, Javascript, or SQL is required.

How do I use Form Builder (Web Forms) to create an anonymous survey?

To create a web forms survey that allows anonymous submissions, add an .htaccess file with the following contents to the subdirectory that contains the survey:

 order deny,allow
 satisfy any

By placing this file in the subdirectory, the contents of the subdirectory are not protected by WebAuth (and therefore anonymous). 

How do I add other admins to my web form?

You can share administration of your form by giving others access to the directory in AFS where the form is located. When someone has administrative (admin) permissions, he is allowed to see, change, and move files. You can assign administrative permissions for the AFS directory that holds your form, but not to a single form.
