How do I submit a form in the UBC Forms system?

A simple form will usually only have a single page with a number of different fields.

Any field that is marked with a red asterisk ( * ) next to the label is mandatory.

Certain fields such as e-mail addresses are validated on the fly and must be valid (address@name.domain).

Other fields such as phone numbers will be validated after the form is submitted.

If there are any errors encountered, there will be a red error message displayed at the top of the page.


Ensure that all of the fields have been entered properly. Some forms may have the option to save a draft.

Once you are sure with all of your answers, click the Submit button.


Once the form has been successfully submitted, you will be directed to a confirmation page.

There will be a link to your submission for the form, as well as a link to return to the form.


Depending on the settings for the form, you may also receive an e-mail with a link to your submission.


Clicking the link to the submissions from the confirmation page or the e-mail will bring you to a page with a table of submissions.

Depending on the settings of the form, you may be able to:

  • view your submission
  • download your submission as a PDF
  • clone your submission
  • edit your submission
  • delete your submission


After successfully submitting a form, a notice at the top of the page will have a link to all previous submissions.
