  4. Fill in the fields appropriately.
    Category Enter a category (more like a title) for your feedback form.
    Recipients Enter the email addresses that you would like the results of the form emailed to. If sending to more than one email address, put each email address on its own line.

    Weight On pages that list the available forms, you can change where this form is listed by adjusting the weight here.
    Selected If you would like this to be the default form, set Selected to yes.
