How do you embed an external submissions form into your website?

This action requires the Global Owners role.

With the External Submissions feature in Ask the Crowd, Users who are not in the crowd can submit Input to your crowd.

Users have the option of submitting Input and giving their Email adress, or submitting anonymously. If a user gives their Email adress when they provide their Input, an email will be sent to their Email address asking them to confirm their Input. Upon confirmation the user will be joined to the crowd and the Input will be assigned to them. If a user chooses to submit anonymously then the Input will be submitted to the crowd under a generic username.

    1. Click on the Dashboard button in the top right of the screen.
    2. Click on External Submissions on the menu on the left hand side of the page.
  1. Click on the 'External HTML SUBMISSION FROM HTML SOURCE' button.

This will expose the relevant HTML to allow the external submission form to be embedded onto a website.
