After you have created an enrollment form, you'll need to share it with parents. How or when you would like parents to fill out the form is completely up to you.
Depending on your enrollment process, you may want to share the form only after the parents have completed a few preliminary steps, or you may want to make this one of the first forms they fill out to demonstrate interest in your program.
In this article, I'll discuss two ways to share your enrollment form: by a simple hyperlink, or by embedding it as a button on your website.
(Important: The "Enrollments" feature is for new families only, if a current family fills out the enrollment form it will create a duplicate student. *For this reason, enrollments are not a good fit for summer camps and enrichment programs)
How to Share the Form
To get back to the "Share the Form" screen, you'll need to click on the "Edit Form" button in the upper right of the Configure screen.
From there, click directly on the #3 circle for "Share the Form."
This will take you to the screen where you can find the link and button tools.
Share as a Hyperlink
One option is to copy the URL of the form and paste it as a simple hyperlink inside of an email or message to the parent. The actual steps will change depending on what you use to share this link, but essentially you will need to do:
- Write the text that you want parents to click on.
- Copy the URL by clicking on the blue copy icon next to the form link (see image above).
- Highlight the text, then select the option to add a hyperlink and paste the URL in the link field.
This is usually easier to read than if you were to list the entire link. However, if you're not sure how to create a hyperlink, simply pasting the entire URL is also perfectly fine.
Embed as a Button
By embedding the form as a button on your existing website, interested parents can easily click to fill out their information and add themselves to your list of potential families on the Enrollment page of the Procare Connect website.
First, you will need to decide where you want the button to appear on your website. Some ideas include:
- Adding the button to a sidebar on the left or right side of your website
- Featuring it somewhere along the top of the website, in the heading area or in the upper right corner
- Including it somewhere in the body of your homepage
Next, copy the button's code using the blue copy icon in the lower right corner of the code box (see image above).
To use the button as-is, paste it into your website's HTML. However, if you would like to change the wording, you'll need to do so before or after pasting the code.
Here is the code copied again:
<style>@import url('https://schools.kinderlime.com/assets/button/kinderlime-button.css');</style><div class="kinderlime-button-wrapper"><div class="kinderlime-button-wrapper__icon"></div><div class="kinderlime-button-wrapper__title">Click below for<br>Online Enrollment</div><a href="https://schools.kinderlime.com/register/hope-preschool-and-daycare" target="_blank" class="kinderlime-button"><div class="kinderlime-button__image"></div></a></div>
You're also welcome to create your own button for your website if our pre-built one doesn't suit your needs.
See example of the above code copied to editor here, you can do similarly on your website
