Creating Custom Form Stages
Hey! You gotta make custom form stages... and groups before you can make custom forms! Follow the guide below to make the stages and then move on to the groups.
What are Custom Form Stages?
Custom Form Stages are different statuses a custom form can go through. Each "stage" can have customizable action(s) and functions. These stages eventually get used in Stage Actions that are explained in the next guide.

Navigate to the Custom Form Stage Editor

Administrative Panel > Customization > Custom Form System > Custom Form Stage Editor

Within this "Custom Form Stage Editor" panel you'll be able to create custom stages.
Custom stages each have configurable actions. These stages can also be looked at as different statuses a form can go through while executing customizable actions.
Administrative Panel Custom Form Stage Editor - Create Stages with Highly Customizable & Powerful Actions
Custom Form Stages are powerless on their own, they must be put into a custom form stage group to be used in a custom form setting.
Additionally, once the group has been created it must be selected and saved on a specific form to be used on that form. Each group can be used on more than just one form.
