Trigger

After selecting the form provider, all forms built under that will be fetched and auto-populated in the Form/Task Name dropdown. Select the form that you want to integrate.

Save Integration

Finally”, click the Save Integration button and you are done. Now you can start testing.

Troubleshooting

After the integration is made, when users fill up the form and submit it, the plugin initiates the process of sending data to the configured platform. It also saves a log that includes what data it tried to send, and what it got in response from that platform. So if you find an integration is not working, your first task is to check the logs. Go to AFI > Log menu and check the recent logs.
