Create a custom contact form

You may want to know more from your visitor when they use the form to contact you. You will then need to build a custom contact form on your website. Those contact forms can generate multiple types of records in the system (emails, leads/opportunities, project tasks, helpdesk tickets, etc...)

Configuration

You will need to install the free Form Builder module. Only available in Odoo Enterprise.
