Embed Formstack.com (alternative to UBCMS form).
The UBCMS is not an appropriate place for ANY regulated private data, such as bank credit/debit card numbers, government-issued ID numbers, health information or computer passwords.
The vendor warns against embedding more than one Formstack form on a page. There is a workaround, but it requires developer level skills.
Do not use the default Other in a dropdown list with the additional text field - both will be labeled the same id. Instead use a separate and clearly labeled "other" text field.
Do not use the built in date picker. Instead provide separate day, month, and year fields.
Add the component to the page. It is represented by a bar and has one tab.
When the component is opened for editing, it will initially display 'Use Formstack's Quick Start embed code.' Simply paste in the code from your Formstack form here. There are no further options or settings.
With this component, you can use the default code from Fromstack.com. There is no need to turn off jQuery (unlike earlier ways of embedding these forms in the HTML Snippet). Conversely, this method does not support turning off jQuery, jQuery UI, or FormStack-derived themes.
The UBCMS component will convert the code into the “no jquery” version of the code.
The component validates the pasted Formstack code and will alert the author if there are any problems.
Initially a "Form is loading…" message may be displayed, but will disappear as the actual form is loaded from Formstack.
This component uses the default version of the embed code from your Formstack form.
This code is located with your form on Formstack.com. Look in the Publish tab, under 'Quick Start.'
If there are any problems with the code that was copied from Formstack, the component will display an error message in the Author environment; e.g. if jQuery is turned OFF in Formstack.com when the code was generated, or if only part of the code was copied.
The following instructions should only be attempted by advanced UBCMS users.
The User Info Loader component can be used to automatically pass information from the UBCMS to Formstack.
This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.

This component uses the default code from Fromstack.com. If you NEED to use the code with jQuery or jQuery UI turned off, consider embedding your form using the HTML Snippet.
