How Do I Create Forms in Edulink One?

Create forms to Make School Life Easier for Learners and Parents

To create a form in Edulink One, an employee must log in to Edulink One and locate the Forms icon. Most employees will have the same level of access, but managers configured in the Forms tab can modify and clone the forms of other employees.

If any forms are personal to the employee that they must fill in, a red circle will appear stating the number of forms that need attention.

Select the Forms icon to access forms. Next, the forms window opens and a list of forms that the employee has created is visible. If the employee has never created a form, this section will be blank.

Forms Icon

Forms have three different tabs: Active, Archived and Personal. The Active tab displays all active forms, the Archived tab contains all archived forms and the Personal tab contains forms that pertain to the individual employee and that they must fill out.

Forms Window

Create a New Form

To create a new form, employees must click the New button at the top left of the Forms window.

New Button

Form Name: Employees must give their form a name related to the form’s subject, e.g. Year 9 Science Trip.

Form Fields

Employees can create forms with various fields to help give parents more information regarding the subject of the form.

It is important to note that Forms are designed for ‘yes or no’ type responses. For more complex needs, such as admissions, you will need to use Data Collection.

Add Form Fields

Subheading: Provide parents with further information about the form using the subheading field.

Subheading Field

Paragraph: You must use the paragraph field to write the details they would like to include on their form. You can customise the font, font size, background and foreground colour, and alignment. You can also use bold, italic, underline and strikethrough. Employees can also add internet hyperlinks to their forms if required.

Paragraph Field

Choice: Employees can customise the fields they would like the parents or learners to respond to. The options have to take the form of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ type responses or ‘select one of the following’ responses.

The label is a required field and must include a sentence regarding the options you are providing, e.g. Please select ONE of the following meal options.

Then, employees must fill in the options they would like the parents or learners to select. This could be yes or no, in the event of gaining permission, or it could be a ‘select one of the following type’ response. Concerning the above example of school meals, for instance, the options could include a Hot School Dinner, Vegetarian Option, Pasta Pot, Pizza Slice or Salad Bar, but learners or parents can only select ONE answer. Furthermore, employees must tick the Required box if they require the choice field for the form.

Choice Field

Email: Employees can select whether they would like the respondents to include their email by selecting the email field. For the label, employees should indicate that an email is a required field for their form, e.g. Please fill in your email below. The required box should be ticked if this is a required field.

Text: Employees can consider whether they would like the respondent to be able to write a free-form text response to the form’s subject. They should include the label for the text, e.g. Write any dietary requirements below, and include a placeholder, which appears in the text box, to provide an example response, e.g. Write allergies or intolerances here.


To select respondents for a form, click the Respondents button after the necessary fields have been filled in and the form has been created.
