For most forms, we recommend using Data Entry Fields, as this is the easiest way to create a form and track all of your variables. However, if you need a more customized data input form, you can hand-code HTML form fields into the content area of your page.
Using the Code View tool ( </>) when editing a node, insert this HTML to add a data entry field for a variable first_name in the content area of a node:
<input name="first_name" type="text" class="zt-data">
The important part is to include class=zt-data in the HTML coding.
Here's how it looks in the node editor using the code view tool:
- Data Entry Variables included in this way won't appear in the Variables tool.
- These variables also won't be available in Logic Nodes or Document Nodes until you run a test session first and enter values for the variables.
