    1. In the page header, select canvas-drop-down > Design to open the page in Design mode.
    2. Select any component (with a blue border) and then select field-level to select the paragraph system containing the current component.
    3. In the paragraph system, select settings_icon to open the Edit dialog for the paragraph system.
    4. From the list of Allowed Components, enable checkboxes for Document Services and Document Services Predicates components. Select OK.
  3. For the pages using a dynamic template, perform the following steps:

    1. In the page header, select properties > Edit Template to open the template of the page.
    2. Select Layout Container and select FeedManagement. In the Allowed Components tab, enable the Document Services and Document Services Predicates options, and select aem_6_3_forms_save.

You can also enable specific components from these categories by selecting the components. For more information about the components and their usage, see Creating a form portal page and Embedding link component in a page.
