What is LGL Forms?
In a nutshell, LGL Forms is a system that lets anyone build and publish HTML/web forms to collect information online, with no coding required.
LGL Forms is a service of Little Green Light and is provided for no extra fee for forms that do not require payment processing. If your form will accept donations, transaction fees will be assessed. More details about this are available on the LGL Forms Donations/Payments signup page in your LGL Forms account.
Why should I use LGL Forms?
In brief, LGL Forms connected with a Little Green Light donor management account saves you time by making data and payment collection simpler. This is because the data flows from Forms to LGL automatically, which can offer huge time-savings.
You can also use LGL Forms (with Stripe, PayPal, or ProPay) to collect one-time or recurring online donations and payments. These, too, can flow automatically into LGL.
How does it work?
Building and publishing a form using LGL Forms is a straightforward point-and-click process. If you are new to LGL Forms, you can get started by reading the following articles:
- Set up your LGL Forms account
- Enable payments through Stripe, PayPal, or ProPay
- Create themes that you can apply to any form
- Build a form
- Set up your form's confirmation options
