Sure can! There's another broader tutorial on creating forms as well. Some of the guys are using it for digital contracts too.

Small problem .... I can't get the webform to show up in my navigation menu.
I remember seeing a "float" option to rearrange which link is higher or lower in the list ....but can't find the damn thing now.   ??? :P ??? :'(

Ok I found the "menu" field set the "Menu Link Title" to : "Link Submission Form"   which is the same as the page "title"  set the Weight to "0"  but it still doesn't show up in my Nav Menu


Figured the problem out Had to change <Parent directory>  to <navigation>  ....in case anyone else has this problem. :)

You got it ;) Primary Menu is along the top horizontally on most themes, navigation is the vertical menus. You can create additional menus if you want.
