    HubSpot Custom Module: Multi-Step Form Slider

    12 Nov, 2018

    If you have a form with a large number of fields to complete, it helps to break that down into manageable steps. That way, the user isn't immediately overwhelmed by the size of the form and is less likely to abandon it once they're halfway through. 

    Marketers frequently ask how they can add multi-step or multi-page forms on HubSpot. By default, HubSpot's forms are designed to be used on a single page. Currently there is no option to create them natively although they do offer some less than ideal workarounds or you could use a service like Typeform and integrate it into your HubSpot account.

    To solve this problem, I've created a HubSpot custom module that allows you to quickly create a set of slides, each containing their own form so that you can gradually capture lead data. You can view a demo of the form and test it out here.

    The module is available on the HubSpot Marketplace here.
