Step 4: Design Your Form
Make your form visually appealing and on-brand by utilizing the design options. Add descriptions, images, or change colors and font styles to enhance the user experience.

Step 5: Share Your Form
Once your form is ready, click on 'Share form' to obtain a shareable link or embed code that can be used on your website or shared directly with your audience.

Step 6: Manage Submissions
Review and manage the data collected through your form submissions directly in the base's grid view, ensuring a seamless integration into your workflow.

Creating a form in Airtable is straightforward, and by following these simple steps, you'll be able to collect and organize data with ease, streamlining the process for your team and your clients.
