Your registration form may be the first interaction with you. Use one of our expert-written online form templates to make a great impression.


Are you in charge of registration for your business or organization? Whether you’re hosting an event, enrolling new students, or collecting new patient information, an online registration form can help. Especially if you embed it into your website, making registrations quick and easy.

For seamless registrations, start with an expert-written template that asks all the right questions. Keep reading for examples and a list of our most popular online registration form templates. Plus, get tips and best practices for implementing a registration process that’ll save you time and boost your data management.

There are a lot of benefits to moving your registration process online. Here are just a few.

  • Efficiency: Need new client or patient information? Have them register online ahead of time. You’ll save their time and yours. They won’t have to come in early to fill out paperwork, and you won’t have to manually input their information into your system.
  • Accuracy: With an online form, you can make certain fields mandatory. That way, you get all the information you need the first time, limiting data gaps and confusion.
  • Accessibility: Embed your form into your website or send it in an email. Anyone can fill it out online without having to travel to your business. If you have a multilingual customer base, you can easily offer forms in different languages, too.
  • Organization: Use an online registration form to collect and manage registrant information and files all in one place. You can integrate your registration forms with many of the business tools you already use.
  • Connection: Online registration forms make it easy to stay in touch with your registrants, from important updates to marketing. If you’re hosting an event, you can send reminders and alert attendees to any program changes. If you’re doing new client intake for your pet grooming service, include a question asking people if they’d like to sign up to receive your newsletter or special promotions.

Here are a few different ways you can create an online form that meets your needs.

Sign up for a free SurveyMonkey account or log in. Go to the header menu, choose Create survey, then choose Start from scratch. To add questions to your form, choose Build and enter your text. 

Not sure how to ask? Search Question Bank for pre-written questions you can add to your form.

If you know what you want your form to be about, but you don’t want to write all the questions yourself, you can create a form using AI. Go to the header menu, choose Create survey, then choose Build with AI. Type in a prompt, and SurveyMonkey will generate a registration form example that you can edit or use right away.

Not sure of what goes on a registration form? Go to the header menu, choose Create survey, then choose Start from template. Go to the drop-down menu and choose Forms to look at dozens of online form templates.

When you find the template you need, choose Use this template and customize it how you want.

Make your online registration forms convenient and easy to fill out so people are more likely to give you complete and accurate information. Here’s how:

  • Keep it short: Registrants are less likely to complete a form that asks too many questions. Set a goal for your form, then only include relevant questions.  If you do need a lot of information, make sure you give people the option to edit their responses so they can exit your form and come back later.
  • Be clear: Avoid jargon, using straightforward language and examples that will help people fill out your form accurately. Read up on other online form design best practices to give your registrants a great experience.
  • Make it seamless: You can embed a registration form into your website or email. This makes it easier for people to reach you and sign up quickly. Plus, we found that embedding a question into an email can boost response rates by up to 22%.
  • Give confirmation: Let people know that their registration is complete and what they can expect next. Set up your form or survey end page experience, either directing people to the URL of your choice or giving a simple thank you for completing the form. You can also automatically send a confirmation email to registrants.
  • Build trust: If you’re collecting payments or asking people to upload files, take the time to show registrants they can trust you with their data. Embed a payment form into your website so people don’t have to navigate elsewhere to submit sensitive information. You can also include information on how your business protects people’s data privacy.
  • Make it accessible: Your registration form should be mobile-friendly and accessible across platforms and devices. Learn more about how to make accessible forms.
