    Contactform

    Is it possible to make a simple contactform (input name, email, subject and message and mail (or store) this somewhere) without using Umbraco Forms and without doing some development. In other words, do the work, create the view, etc ... from the umbraco backoffice?

    You can absolutely create an HTML form using just the Templates available through the back-office. The problem comes in what the form should do with the data. With Umbraco Forms, or a custom developed form, the data would be sent back to the server that would store it in a table. Without that, you would need some other place for the form to send its data.

    There are certainly providers that could receive data and store it for you, or even let you setup rules to send out emails or take other actions based on the data. If you contract with one of those services, you'd just need to use the URL they provide and put that in the action attribute of your HTML form.

    Thx Benjamin

    I was hoping that capturing the data and send it by mail or store it would have been possible out-of-the-box but it isn't possible without extra stuff (internal or external)

    Correct. Capturing the data and doing something with it is one of the big value-adds for Umbraco Forms.
