Form Mail for Confluence 

Create custom email forms in your Confluence Wiki

About Form Mail for Confluence

Form Mail for Confluence is a simple and effective tool for creating email forms directly in your Confluence Wiki. Users have complete control of the fields and their layout, as well as having the ability to validate input and autocomplete a logged-in user’s details. There’s also a bunch of nifty features like protecting you from SPAM and using you Confluence’s email configuration, making Form Mail a valuable addition to your Confluence Wiki

 

How Does Form Mail for Confluence Work

Form Mail for Confluence contains several macros that users can use to create mail forms in a page. The ability to layer these macros means you can make your mail forms as sophisticated or as simple as you like. Leave your mail form in a public space or direct people to it for a specific purpose and let users fire off messages.

Administrators can pre-define the behaviour of mail forms with the use of Form Mails or let users configure them on the fly at creation to meet their specific needs, either way the new admin controls allow you to easily track where Form Mail for Confluence  is being used. 



You can quickly and easily build Form Mails that can be used to drive your business processes, improve communication with clients, develop leads and even improve quality of service.

Known Issues


 Issue with Export to PDF

 Export to PDF functionality doesn't work with Form Mail. We have logged this issue with Atlassian https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-38112. To export your Confluence page to PDF, we suggest you to use your built in Browser functionality for the time being, until a fix is in place for this. Please see below tutorial that we have created to use your browser functionality to save webpages as PDF

 

 Chrome

To Export to PDF from your Google Chrome browser, go to the page you wish to save as a PDF.  Click on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" icon.


Then, select "Print". 

 

 

When clicked on "Save page as..", this will only let you save the web page as HTML or a complete web page, not as a PDF file. 

 

When clicked on "Print", you will see a split-screen showing a preview of web page on the right side and a print options panel on the left.

Please note the Destination section here, you should see Save as PDF. If you see something else instead, click on the Change button and select the Save as PDF option.

 

Now click the Save button


You will get a Save As screen as shown below, where you can change the filename and where you wish to save it.

Click the Save button and your page will be saved as a PDF


 Safari

Click on File> Export to PDF


You will get a Save As screen, where you can change the filename and where you wish to save it. 

 Mozilla Firefox

For Firefox, there is no workaround from built-in features to print a webpage to PDF. This can be done using extensions. You can use Fire fox Add-ons that are available to save your page as PDF.
