Footer footer-adaptive-forms-core-component

A footer component in an Adaptive Form is an area that typically appears at the bottom of the form and contains information such as a copyright notice, links to related resources, or contact information. A footer can provide additional information, such as the date of the last update, which can be beneficial for users with accessibility needs.



There are several reasons why it is beneficial to include a footer component in a form, including:

  • Legal requirements: Some forms may be required to include a disclaimer, copyright notice, or other legal information. A footer is a convenient place to include this information.

  • Navigation: A footer can provide links to other important pages on the website, such as a privacy policy, terms of service, or contact page.

  • Branding: A footer can be used to include a logo or other branding elements, helping to reinforce the identity of the organization or website.

  • Consistency: A footer provides consistency in the design and layout of the form, making it more intuitive and easy for users to navigate.

  • Additional context: A footer can provide additional context to the form, such as a text describing the form or a link to related resources, making the form more informative and user-friendly.
