Configuring the Contact Form block

Now that you've added the "Contact Form" building block, it's time to configure it. There are only two settings screens available here: Settings and Design.

Settings allows you to influence how the block will function and the Design settings will determine the aesthetics of the block. 

Settings

Here you can change a number of things like:

  • the name of the building block
  • the icon that will show up in the app menu
  • the top image
  • the values of the different contact form fields. 

Should the need arise to keep the users of your published app from using this portion of the app, then you can always make use of the "ON/OFF" sliding selector.

Slide the selector to "OFF" to keep users from seeing the Events block. Now you can continue developing your app without worrying about users coming upon areas that you haven't finished developing as of yet. Once you are satisfied with your progress, slide the selector back to "ON" to publish this portion of your app.

Design

These settings allow you to make aesthetic changes to your app in magnificent detail. If you'd like to know more about how Design works, click here
