Header & Footer in the new Drag-and-Drop Builder

This article features the new Formstack Documents drag-and-drop builder. This feature is currently in beta testing and has not been deployed to all accounts.

Headers and footers are useful for including material that you want to appear on every page of a document such as your name, the title of the document, or page numbers

 

How can I add a Header & Footer to my document?

Click on the Header and Footer button from the builder options at the right of the screen and select Header or a Footer.

 

How can I see the header and footer in my document?

When you add a Header or a Footer to your document it will be visible until your Document is merged. A Header or a Footer will not be visible in the document builder while editing your document.
