Create a theme for your form

Once you’ve created a form you can make your own theme for it. Stamp your brand on it with a logo and customized fonts and colors, or even create an entire custom CSS styling.

To create a theme as an admin, go to Admin > Themes from the main menu. On this screen, you can see all your existing themes and whether they’re in use on any forms.

Design your theme

Only admins can design new themes. If you’re not an admin, you can still change the theme of a form to an existing theme.

On the Themes page, choose Create theme to start from scratch. Follow these steps to design your theme:

  1. Name your theme at the top of the page.

  2. Give it a Theme description to explain what kinds of forms you want to use this theme on (for example ‘use this theme for fun forms only’). This is particularly important if you have other users managing your forms.

  3. Set your theme’s Primary color and Secondary color by either typing Hex codes into the text boxes, or choosing them from the pop-up color pickers.
    Make sure you use accessible colors on your theme so everybody can use your form. Check if your colors are accessible here: http://accessible-colors.com/

  4. (Pro, Business and Enterprise plans)
    If you want, upload a file to use as your logo.
    Can't see the logo option? Save your theme, and this option will appear. Use a logo with a minimum size of 80x80 px for the best results.

  5.  (Pro, Business and Enterprise plans)

    If you've uploaded a theme logo, select the logo and title layout.

    This will be applied to your form, and to response PDFs.
    If you've uploaded a white logo, select Primary theme color background behind form name and logo, otherwise your logo will appear invisible.

  6. Choose where to display error messages on your form from the Error message display position menu.

  7. (Pro, Business and Enterprise plans)
    To fine-tune your form theme, you can link to an external CSS stylesheet (this URL must be https://), or manually add your own code to the Custom CSS styling field. These fields are useful for developers, but aren't necessary if you’re just making a simple theme. See Use CSS to fine-tune your themes for more information.

  8. Save your changes.

Add your theme to a form

  1. From the main menu, go to Forms > any form > Settings > Display settings > Choose form theme.

  2. Choose a theme for the form.

  3. Save the form.

Themes must be applied to forms individually (we don't currently support batch applying themes).

Update themes 

You can update themes at any time by returning to the Edit Theme screen. To do this, 

  1.  Go to Admin > Themes
  2. Choose the theme you'd like to edit, and select Edit  from its '...' menu. 

In the edit screen, you'll also be able to see how many forms the theme is applied to.
