How It Works

  • When a form is submitted, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.

Integration Walkthrough

In this integration tutorial we will show you how to create a form integration in PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 1 minute. We assume that you already have a PagerTree account setup.

In PagerTree

  1. Create the integration by clicking the Form logo.

  2. Configure options for your form (see form options section below).

  3. Copy the CNAME URL.

You have successfully completed the Form Integration. You can now test the integration.

Test the Integration

To view the form, you must be logged out of PagerTree. An easy method is to use an Incognito Window in Chrome or Firefox.

  1. In Chrome or Firefox, paste the CNAME URL in the location bar and click Enter. (Please note: the first rendering of this page might be slow, this is because PagerTree is self signing certificates to make this a secure connection. Subsequent renders will be faster).

  2. In the form, enter the details requested.

  3. Click Submit.

If everything was configured correctly, you should now see a new alert in PagerTree.
