Creating web forms

If you need to create online forms, you can do this using Formdesk. This tool can be used for registrations for events and for asking for feedback.

Log in

Log in with your ULCN-account.

Go to Formdesk

Qualtrics survey software allows you to create online questionnaires for your research.

Working with Formdesk

You can go to the website of Formdesk to read about the many possibilities offered by this tool. You can read, for example, about how to:

  • set up a confirmation mail,
  • define a maximum number of respondents,
  • specify an expiry date for each form.

If you want to place a form on the university website, please contact the web editor of your unit.

What is the standard retention period in Formdesk?

When you create forms in Formdesk, they are subject to a retention period of 6 months (or more precisely, 183 days). This retention period applies for the data you have collected via the forms, not for the actual forms you have created. The data will be deleted automatically, so you don’t need to do anything to make this happen.


If you have any questions about using Formdesk, please contact the ISSC Helpdesk.
