HTML Widget for Admissions Inquiry

The first of several QuickSchools widgets you can now publish on your own website, the Admissions Inquiry Widget allows you to display an Admissions Inquiry form that will feed directly into your Admissions Inquiries module. The online form also includes custom fields that you define. Here’s how it works:

Go to the “Admissions” > “Inquiries” module (be sure the module is enabled via the “Features” page), and click on the link to “embed an inquiry form on your school website”:

We recommend starting with the “Easy Embed” option, which is really just a single line of code to be added to your website. The screen will allow you do several things:

  • Define additional custom fields (using the new Module-Based Custom Fields)
  • Customize a confirmation email message to be sent to the inquirer
  • Configure additional recipients to be notified of new inquiry submissions
  • Preview the form before using it

And here’s the resulting online form (without any additional formatting):

If you want full control over the form, you can use the Advanced Embed option. But you’ll need good working knowledge of web technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc.), in order to manipulate it properly.

We’re currently working on the HTML widget for Admissions Applications. We expect a beta version to be released very soon. Keep an eye out for it on our blog and Facebook page.
