Adding Forms to Facebook!

Quick Tip

Your Facebook page must have 2,000 or more followers in order to create custom page tabs.

Facebook

Does your organization use a contact form, or a registration form that collects payment? Instead of just providing a link to the form, why not actually embed it in your Facebook page? In a couple quick steps, you can have your form embedded in its own tab and easily accessible to your customers.

To start, login to your Cognito Forms account, or sign up if you haven’t already. Now, all you’ll need is the Static HTML app by Thunderpenny. After you click “Use App” and select your Facebook page, the app will automatically create a new tab on your page. You can then edit the tab and paste your form’s Iframe embed code from the Publish page of your form builder into the content area:

Embed form code in Static HTML app.

Next, select “Edit name and image” from the Actions dropdown to edit your tab’s name. Make sure to click the Save & Publish button, and you’re finished!

Form embedded into tab.
