Form Instructions
DO NOT DELETE anything on this form. DO NOT change visibility or most other settings.

Step 1 - Make a clone of this form, give it a name, save it.
Step 2 - Enter the new number of your form in the field below (use the Default property).
              This is the FormAssembly assigned number, found under Publishing on the left.
              This is used to log the FormAssembly form and response that generated a record in SF.
Step 3 - Enable connectors and reset Denver Neighborhood; special handling for Chargent
Step 4 - Update only the general text above, the individual class titles and descriptions below. The class info on the last page comes from Salesforce (Event Desc for Automation). NOTE: Copy and paste special without formatting, then reformat. 
Step 5 - Edit Notifications (on the left) - This section gets erased when cloning a form. Copy and paste from the template into your new form. The response email accommodates for the number of classes selected. 
Step 6 - Optionally change the theme.

How this form works: 

This form automatically handles up to 8 classes. You can set the Entire Series section to Hidden if you don't want to use it. Just don't delete it. Please don't change any other visibility rules. 

The prefill connector gets the Event info from Salesforce and enters it in the hidden fields at the bottom of this page. If it finds the event in SF, it shows the class section. If it doesn't find the event in SF, it hides the class section. 

Here's how to make your copy of this form handle your events: 

A Record ID is an 18 character alphanumeric value that uniquely identifies that record in Salesforce. You can find the Record ID in the URL when you are viewing the event. 
  1. View your event in Salesforce and copy the Record ID from the URL
  2. In FormAssembly, go to Connectors on the left
  3. Click Configure on the Salesforce (Prefill) connector (Form Open section at the top)
  4. Locate the lookup number that corresponds with the class number
  5. Paste the Record ID in the criteria section for that class
    NOTE: If you are not using a class, please enter this Record ID instead: a3XRd0000000000000
    (Since this is not a real ID, the Class ID will be blank and the class section will be hidden)
