Create a Web Form

You can create Web Forms to generate new records in IQ directly from the people with whom you interact.  Web Forms can be created to generate an incoming email, create a Service or an Event record directly in the IQ database.  You determine the fields you would like to capture.  Once the web form is created, it can be placed on your website and included as a link in the content of an eNewsletter.
