Creating a Section Heading Field

AUDIENCE: Administrators, Marketing Users
OBJECTIVES: Learn how to create a Rich Text block in a form


The most versatile content block within the form editor, the Rich Text block allows you to create text, insert pictures, link to documents and forms, create tables, and much more.

The rich text editor is an interface for editing rich text within web browsers, which presents the user with a 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get' editing area. The aim is to create an easy, intuitive way for users to format content directly.

To add a Rich Text block to your form:

  1. Click on Content > click Forms.
  2. From the Forms page, select New in the upper right corner of the page (or edit an existing form). When a new form is created, three default fields will appear: First Name, Last Name, and Email Address.
  3. Hover over a block to access the submenu and select New
  4. Select Rich Text Section. An Edit Section Field dialog window will appear.
  5. Once inside the rich text editor you will see three rows of icons to help you customize your text. There are also additional Act-On-specific icons to assist you in accessing links to Act-On materials, inserting personalization, and creating layout structures for complex content. For details on these buttons, refer to the articles listed in the References section below. 
  6. Once you have completed the editing of your rich text area, select the Submit button at the bottom of the dialog window. This will return you to the main form.
