Contact page examples
- Email links: https://homesleep.stanford.edu/contact. As you can see, users can easily scan for mail links, which are styled with the mail icon automatically.
- Contact forms: Embedding a Google Form works well. Advanced Form Notifications are an option so you receive email when the form is filled out. Also, you can collect a SUNetID automatically for Stanford-facing forms.
- Contact page with map and calendar: This example embeds a custom Stanford map and a 25Live calendar. Both systems offer embed codes that can be added to any basic page by requesting help from SWS.
- Site-wide contact info: The local footer is designed to display contact information where people expect to find it. In addition to the address, add email links and phone numbers to the Local Footer; the phone link makes it easy for readers on a mobile device to simply click to connect.
- Family Weekend used Stanford Sites to host a live-streamed event, including captions and slides, provided by Stanford Video.
