Front-end Submit WebApps

When you make a new WebApp, a front-end form file is automatically generated within your WebApp, in a folder called form. It automatically contains all fields from your WebApp. You can view this folder using Code Editor, it is next to the detail and list folders for your WebApp.


Output your WebApp form on a page: {%- include 'webapp_form', id: 'custom_webapp_1' -%} Toolbox has support for WebApp input forms, and the following options will be given in the modal, or you can set them yourself:

  • enabled  - default is false  - Boolean - Determines if items are auto-enabled or not
  • expiry_date  - default is never expires  - Timestamp - When the new item will expire
  • release_date  - default is as soon as the form is submitted  - Timestamp - When the new item will be released
  • upload_dir - String - default is documents/form_uploads/webapp_1/  Where uploaded files will be stored. Must follow this format - 'folder/optional_folder/'

Standard Fields

Some fields are required for the form to be able to set up the WebApp items correctly. These fields are for 'enabled', 'expiry_date', 'release_date', 'upload_dir', and 'slug'. They stay the same each form, and don't have a WebApp specific ID attached to them.


All forms should be wrapped in a Liquid form tag: {% form -%}{% endform -%} All forms need a submission button:<button onClick="s_form_submit_v2(this,'webapp_1')">Submit</button>
