Web forms allow you to collect information from your users.

The best platform for your web form will depend on your requirements.

Simple web forms can be created and managed through Checkbox, but more complex projects may require web forms that integrate with other systems.

Simple web forms

Checkbox is UQ's centrally-supported web form tool.

You can use Checkbox for basic data collection activities, such as:

  • conducting surveys
  • requesting feedback
  • requesting contact details
  • requesting registrations for events
  • requesting nominations or expressions of interest
  • requesting subscriptions to mailing or registration lists.

All UQ staff have access to Checkbox to create web forms. Checkbox training is also available.

Integrated web forms

Projects that require web forms that integrate with other systems and have additional functionality, are not suitable for Checkbox. These projects will require different platforms.

Marketing automation forms

Web forms can be used to collect information from users and provide personalised communications through marketing campaigns. Web forms for lead capture and customer engagement can be created using the Eloqua marketing automation tool.

Contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at marketing@uq.edu.au to discuss your requirements.

Enquiry management forms

Web forms for collecting users' details to direct enquiries can be created using Oracle Service Cloud CRM.

Submit an IT request to discuss your requirements.

Business process digitisation forms

Web forms used to help automate business processes can be created using UniTask. Generally, these projects are large, and require significant resourcing and planning.

Submit an IT request to discuss your options.

External web form platforms

We don't recommend using forms created by external providers, such as SurveyGizmo, Typeform or SurveyMonkey. Support for web forms created on external platforms is not available at UQ.

If you choose to use an external web form platform, you’ll need to think about:

If you have concerns about a platform, don’t use it. Submit an IT request to discuss other options.
