The Apricot Secure Web Form tool allows Administrators to create a direct URL, or web address, that bypasses the standard login and allows a user to directly access a Tier 1 form for data entry. Secure Web Forms allow individuals such as potential volunteers, donors, or service recipients to submit a request for more information or to complete an application directly in Apricot without having to log into Apricot or requiring that an application be manually entered into the database. For information on how to create a new Secure Web Form, click here.

To test your secure web form you should completely log out of Apricot first. Then, you should test it in an "Incognito window" (CTRL+SHIFT+N in Chrome) or "Private Window" (CTRL+SHIFT+P in Firefox) as well. If you do not, you may run into some errors where you will no longer be able to test it or you may even be locked out of your Apricot.
