FormBackend helps by saving you development time.

I've added the example below here: https://formbackend-example-simple.glitch.me

If you add a html form on your website, you can use the unique URL provided by FormBackend to collect responses submitted via your form.

Example 1 - Collect email addresses for people interested in your BETA
Let's say you're about to launch a new product and you want to collect email addresses from people that want to be notified once you're ready to go live.

You want them to be able to enter their email in to a form on your website, but you don't want to build the code on the backend-server to collect and store the submitted emails.

So you sign up for FormBackend, create what we refer to as a "form" on our side, which will give you a unique URL you can use in the HTML form on your own website.

You then add the HTML form on your website, which looks something like this:

<form action="https://www.formbackend.com/ABCDEFG" method="post">
  <label for="email">Your email</label>
  <input type="text" name="email">

  <button>Submit</button>
</form>

We of course want our HTML form to look nice, so we look at the mockup the designer gave us and add the css:

form {
  background-color: white;
  border-radius: 4px;
  padding: 20px;
  width: 400px;
}

form label {
  display: block;
  font-family: arial;
  color: #9BABB4;
  font-weight: 400;
}

form input {
  color: #9BABB4;
  padding: 10px;
  font-size: 1em;
  width: 382px;
  border-radius: 2px;
  border: 1px solid #DAE4E9;
  margin-top: 5px;
}

form button {
  padding: 10px;
  border-radius: 3px;
  border: none;
  color: white;
  font-family: arial;
  margin-top: 10px;
  font-size: 1em;
  width: 404px;
  background-color: #6574CD;
  box-shadow: 0 4px 8px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.12), 0 2px 4px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.08);
}

form button:hover {
  background-color: #5661B3;
  cursor: pointer;
}

Which results in our form looking like this

When someone fills it out, and hits the "Submit" button - the value will be captured by FormBackend.

If we're really nice, we'll turn on "Submitter notifications" in FormBackend, so the submitter of the form will receive a nice email letting them know that we'll get back to them once the beta is open.
