Web Forms

Web forms are used to collect information from website visitors, such as a survey, an application, or simply a contact method. Several web form options are available to incorporate on your site.

MailTo Forms

MailTo forms use a script to send submissions from an HTML form you create to a Carnegie Mellon email address. To use MailTo forms, you must have an intermediate or advanced level of HTML authoring.

Google Forms

A Google form collects data into a spreadsheet. Create the form using Google's form tools then embed the form onto your site. Use your university Google account for this service rather than a personal Google account.
