Web Forms

Several web form options are available to collect information. In most cases we recommend Microsoft Forms, which is available universitywide through Office 365 and is supported by the Office of Information Technology.

Qualtrics is also available university-wide, or you may have access to another UH System-approved form system in your area.


Decide What Information To Collect

Review UH System's data security policy, available at OIT's page on MS Forms. For more information, contact the Information Security Office.

Create the Form From a Shared UHCL Email/Account

This will help ensure your forms remain intact after staff changes. If your department or office does not have a general account, request one from OIT.

After you create a form from a central account, Microsoft Forms can share editing access with individual users as needed.

Use Guides to Help You Create Your Form

Many form systems, including Microsoft Forms and Qualtrics, offer options to add form instructions, accept attachments, notify you of form responses, store and export form responses, and other tools.

Use UHCL Branded Colors

If your form has customizable options, use UHCL branded colors to match our website branding.

Do not add the official UHCL logo, which may be distorted by automatic sizing.

Share Your Form

Most forms can be shared in multiple ways to meet your needs, including through email or on social media.

For help linking to your form from a UHCL webpage, work with your web editor or submit a MarComm Work Request Form.

At this time, the UHCL web team is not embedding third-party forms directly into UHCL web pages.
