What are Webforms?

Webforms are a form of interaction between you, the supplier, and your customer, to gather relevant information for their specific event. Webforms can be created for DJ song requests, customer feedback, staff event report, pre-event questionnaire and photo shoot requirements.


Depending on the purpose, you can create webforms for either a customer, an assigned staff member or a site admin to complete.


Once created, webforms will only appear for bookings created going forward. For bookings already created, the new webform cannot be assigned or completed.

What are they used for?

Most events rely on information gathered from Webforms to run their event. For example you may send a pre-event questionnaire to a customer and their answers to these can affect your planning of the event so you need to give yourself enough time to adjust and adapt to their requirements. This feature is key when it comes to running your event professionally and successfully.


Every event is different and has different needs so we have ensured you can be flexible with the Webform capabilities. The results from Webforms is gathered and can be exported into a CSV file for reporting.

  • Productivity
