The Core Component Form Container Component allows for the creation of simple submission forms.
The Form Container Component enabled the building of simple information submission forms and features by supporting simple WCM forms and by using a nested structure to allow additional form components.
By using the setting dialog the content editor can define what type of action form submission triggers, where the submitted content should be stored, and if a workflow should be triggered. The template author can use the design dialog to define the allow components and their mappings similar to the design dialog for the standard layout container in the template editor.
This document describes v1 of the Form Container Component, originally introduced with release 1.0.0 of the Core Components with AEM 6.3.
The following table lists the compatibility of v1 of the Form Container Component.

The settings dialog allows the content author to define what actions are taken when the component is submitted.
Depending on the selected Action Type, the available options within the container will change. The available action types are:
Regardless of the type, there are general settings that apply to each action.
When the form is submitted, the mail action type will send an email to designated recipients.
When the form is submitted, the content of the form will be stored in a designated repository location.
When the form is submitted, the order will be submitted.
When the form is submitted, the order will be updated.
Regardless of the action type selected, a thank you page can always be defined.
The user will be redirected to the specified page after completion of the form submission.
The design dialog allows the template author to define the allowed components and their mappings for the container similar to the design dialog for the standard layout container in the template editor.
