The Sitecore Forms application groups the elements to help structure your forms in the Structure section of the Form elements pane.

This topic describes the following form structure elements and their settings:

Section

Use the Section element to divide the form into sections.

Field name

Name of the element.

Styling

CSS class

Page

If you want to create a long form with multiple sections, you can use the Page element to create a form that contains multiple pages and make it more user-friendly.

The Page element has only one setting: the name of the element.

Submit button

To submit a form (page), a contact must click the Submit button. You can add different types of actions to perform when a user clicks Submit. For example, the submit action makes sure the data is saved to your database.
