6.1 Creating a new Event Form
To Navigate to the Event Form building tool in Event Schedule Planning, click on 'Form' for your newly created Event Type (see this article for details on how to create an Event Type).
A new card will appear. To create a new form, select 'Create a New Form.'
Then enter a Name for your Form and select a Workflow. For documentation on how to create a workflow, click here. You may also choose to define a Worflow at a later stage and proceed with creating the new form.
After clicking on 'Add,' you will be routed to the Form editor where you can begin to build your form questions.
6.2 Delivered Form Questions
System Administrators have the option to customize Coursedog delivered questions or to create new form questions. Coursedog's form builder delivers Meetings and Locations and Event Contacts questions but allows users to customize the questions to suit their institutional needs.
6.2.1 Meetings and Locations
The Meetings and Locations card comes delivered with Start and End dates, meeting repeats, location finder, resources requestor and Setup and Tear Down time indicator. Coursedog allows users to customize the allowable rooms and the required fields on the Meetings and Locations Card by clicking on the 'Advanced Settings' wedge on the top right corner of the card. You can edit which fields are hidden to certain users and can also choose whether you want to require requests to have at least one meeting.
The Meetings and Locations Card in the Form Builder will display in text all custom settings that have been defined on that card.
The fields in the Contacts card are not customizable. However, you can decide whether or not to require at least one contact and determine whether contacts should receive email notifications.
6.3 Adding Pre-Built Form Questions
Coursedog Event Planning allows users to easily add pre-built form questions. To add a pre-built question select pre-built question on the Left side of your screen
Drag and drop desired pre-built questions into your form.

6.4 Adding Custom Form Questions
Coursedog Event Planning allows you to create many different styles of questions based on the format in which the response should be: Text response, Yes/No, Date, Multiple Choice, etc. Coursedog also provides the ability to guide users to links or upload images.
If you wish to add a new card for the question to belong to in the form, click on the '+' sign on the right side of your screen.
Once your desired cards are created, you may add questions to them. To add a customized question, click on 'Custom Questions' on the Left side of your screen.
There are many Question Types available for creation: Text, Textarea, Yes/No, Select, Date, Number, Organization Select, User Select, Link, Upload File. Drag and drop your Question Type to the space marked 'Drag a Question Here.'
Enter your Question Title and Question Description.
You may determine whether the question should be required, as well as any default values and other attributes in the left panel when you click into a specific question.
6.5 Editing, Previewing, and Deleting a Form
Institutional needs change and may dictate that an Event form be modified or deleted. It is recommended that a form creator preview a form before making it available for use by requestors.
If you need to edit a card or question on your form, you can do so by clicking on the blue pencil (edit).
When you have completed your form, you can preview your Event form by clicking 'Preview' in the top right.
You may also delete your entire form by clicking on 'Delete.'
