Step By Step Guide to Create A Form Using Drupal Webform Module

Webform is a module for making forms and collecting information from users in Drupal. Using this, you can send a ‘thank you email’ to the users, after they submit their information and also, it enables you to send notifications to administrators.

Results can be exported to Excel or any other desired spreadsheet applications. Webform also provides some elemental statistical reviews. If you need to build a number of customized and unique forms, Webform is a better-suited solution than creating content types and using the Field modules.
