Online Inquiry Form

Another way to add inquiries to the system is to use an online form that is embedded into your agency's website. The inquiry can fill out the form, click Submit, and the information will automatically be added to extendedReach. 

To use the online inquiry form, go to Organization Settings -> Organization Preferences -> Family Web -> Inquiries. If the Family Web tab is not available, please contact to set it up for you. 

In the Inquiry Form Settings section, you can select a default worker the inquiries will be assigned to; notify multiple email addresses of new inquiries, and ask which branch/location is closet to the inquiry.

In the Inquiry Integration Code section, use Option 1 to use the direct URL to the Inquiry Form. Option 2 is used to embed the code into an existing agency webpage.
