Seamlss Fetch

Fetch requests are a quick, easy, and secure method for requesting additional information from clients. By keeping all communication on Seamlss and off email, you are protecting yourself and your clients from potential data leaks.

Open the Clients menu from the left, select a client, and click the New Quick Fetch Request button (see below).

Select a template by going to the drop-down menu.

Email Options #

At the bottom of the Fetch form, you can choose whether to send the client a request via email. If you untick the box it will not send, however you may choose to resend it later from the client window.

If you choose to send an email request, you can also add a custom message for the client.

When you are ready to send the form to your client, click Send Fetch. A window will pop up confirming the Fetch has been sent.

Creating a new form #

To create a new form, simply fill out the Name and Description boxes, then hit Add New Question.

Under Question Type, you can select the type of question from the drop-down menu.

Forms created in this way will not be saved as templates. View our help guide on creating templates if you would like to create a new form you can save and use again.

For each question type, you can select whether the question is mandatory or not.
If the question is optional, untick the box.

Jump to each question type using the links below.
