Brick River form creator is a very versatile system. It allows you to create event registration forms of all types, surveys, and contact update requests. You can also use it to receive payments, including donations. When a form is submitted, Brick River creates or updates a contact record and adds a record to the view of registrations for that form. For each form submitted, Brick River evaluates that First Name, Last Name, and Email address indicated on the form. If they match an existing contact - that contact will be edited. The registration field will be updated to include the name of the form that was submitted. If no match is found, the registrant is added as a new contact.
