The Final action is what happens after someone fills out the form. The default option is to show the 'thank you' message. You can also choose to simply close the form or redirect the respondent to another page.

Step 5

The last three tabs are optional. You can leave these settings as they are by default.

Step 6

When you are done editing your form, click OK to save the changes. When you first create a widget it's deactivated which means it's not yet live on your actual website. You can leave it deactivated if you want to make changes to the form before publishing it. If you are ready to publish the form on your website, activate it.
