## Some GNGforms features.
At the center of GNGforms is the WYSIWYG web form creator [formbuilder]( Users build a form, choose a URL slug, and publish it.
GNGforms adds form management so that:
* Data generated by the forms can be downloaded in CSV.
* A readonly url can be enabed access generated data.
* Users can create forms and share 'editor' permission with other users.
* Basic options to set form expiry criteria.
### Resources
## Resources
One installation (one instance running on your server), can be used for many domains. An nginx proxy in front of GNGforms can route as many domains as you wish to the gunicorn running process.
One installation, one database, one monitoring and one backup system, means less work for sysadmins.
## Config
Copy `config.example.cfg` to `config.cfg`. The configuration option are pretty straight forward.
SMTP_SERVER expects a running server that accepts connection without credentials. This needs to be improved.
ROOT_USERS a list of emails. Users with these emails are automatically made Root Users.
ROOT_USERS is a list of emails. Users with these emails are "Root users".
## Users
Each domain used with GNGforms has an independent user database.
### User profiles
* Anonymous users: Can fill out published forms
* Normal registered users: Can create and publish forms. Can download form data.
* Admins: Can enable and disable users. Can see all forms (but not form data). Admins can also decide if new users can be created by any anonymous user, or if new users must be 'invited' by the administrators. (invite only).
* Root users: Special users created by the sysadmin. Root users can see all users and forms in the database, regardless of the domain.
