Step- 4. Configuring notification settings

It is important to properly configure your notification settings. By default, WPForms only send a confirmation notification to the admin. But you also send an email confirmation notification to the user who has successfully submitted your form.

For setting up your confirmation email notification, I highly recommend you to read one of my articles about how to send confirmation emails to users.

And also read how to add captcha in your forms to protect your form from spammers.

Step- 4. Configuring Confirmation settings

A confirmation message is a message which users see when they submit their form. With WPForms, you can create three types of confirmation messages.

a. With this, you can create a normal message. To create this type of message select Message from the drop-down and put your message.

b. If you select Show Page, you can redirect your users to a specific page.

If you want, you can create a ‘thank you’ page and after your users submit the form, you can redirect them to your ‘thank you’ page.

c. You can show your users a specific URL (like, you can show them a post and redirect them to any other sites). To do that, you need to select the Go to URL (Redirect) option and put your URL.

Step- 5. Publish your form

It is the last step to follow and also the easy step. If you are using a Page Builder on your site, you don’t need to worry about that, because WPForms is fully comfortable with Page Builders.

Go to Pages > Add New and create a new page or open your exciting page and search for WPForms in the Gutenberg editor and select your form. After doing that, don’t forget to publish your form.

WPForms also provides a shortcode that can be used in any of your pages or posts.

Now you have successfully created your contract agreement form with a digital signature in WordPress.
