  • All Edlio Websites include Forms.
    • Collect contactless enrollment forms, laptop requests, and other essential forms the new school year brings.

  • As an Admin you can customize their homepage with widgets.
    • Choose between a Form widget - great for getting users to sign up for your school's newsletter - or a button link widget to draw attention to another page. You can place these widgets anywhere on your homepage, and change 'em up whenever you like!
  • Through contact form validation it's easy to keep your school secure and spam-free by only allowing visitors to send contact forms if they first verify their identity through Google or Facebook. It's live on your site now!
