Creating and managing Forms
Forms are a great tool to use within your server. They are a flexible way to ask your members those all-important questions and gather the information in one place. We'll show you how to create these for your channels.
Tip: If you wish to keep the Form results confidential to your server admins, toggle off the permission on any role you don't want viewing the results.
