Clicking on the Embed button will produce a window that will allow you to copy your Webform’s URL, IFrame, and Embed code. You can then use these to link the webform to any external site you wish (you could place a button on your campaign or committee site, for example, and have that button direct straight to the Webform).

You can also place the webform URL into any mass email you send, allowing anyone who reads the email to move directly to your contribution/sign-up form. This can be very useful for fundraising.

When making any changes to the web form, you will have to click on Save in the upper right hand corner. This applies to any changes you will want to Preview as well. Before you can preview any changes, you will have to save first.
