Step 1 - Drag the Contact form component in the workspace
Click and drag the Contact form component from the left menu to where you want to place it on the page.
Note: You can only have one contact form per page, so if the component is greyed out, this means you already have a contact form on the selected page.
Step 2 - Set form email address

- Enter a subject for the emails, for you to be able to recognise the emails in your Inbox.
