Additionally, many forms are gateways to complex sales and marketing funnels. Let’s look at how to create a form in Webflow and connect to Headlessforms to manage the backend, along with some best practices to keep in mind.

Like any other part of Webflow, you can build forms using a drag-and-drop interface and easily access form submissions without dealing with a lot of backend code or customization. However, there are a few caveats to keep in mind to avoid any problems.
