Embedding the Let’s Talk! Form
System Admins have the option to email, copy, or download the embed codes of your choice. You may choose the embeddable iFrame code for a Landing Page or any of your Topics. In most cases, you will primarily use the Main District website code to embed the iFrame within your district website.
Tip for System Admins: To add the Let’s Talk! Landing Page or pop-out Tab onto your district’s website, simply download the embed code from your account. Your webmaster will be able to place the Landing Page or Tab by using this embed code.
Available under Settings > Form Setup > Landing Page/ Tab Editor and select your page.
From here click on Share to view the Email, Embed, and Download options.
Email: Send the Landing Page embed code(s) for specific Topics, via email. Provide email addresses of those to receive the code(s), as well as a personalized note.
Embed: Copy the iFrame embed code for your landing page directly to your clipboard. You can then paste it in the appropriate place in your web admin tool.
Download: Download an Excel spreadsheet containing both the links and embed code to each of the district’s Landing Pages. To download individual Topic links and embed codes, select “Include Topic(s) form embed codes”, too.
Let’s go over the vocabulary!
- URLs: These are links directly to the main page or to a specific Topics form. They do not include any framing and simply display the page or form. These links may be useful for sharing draft versions of the Landing Page or training exercises but are not recommended for use as live pages.
- Embed codes: These codes are loaded within an existing website and will expand into an iFrame – an access window that displays either the main page or a form for a specific Topic. Embed codes are recommended for use on live sites.
Where to Put Them
The Tab can be implemented by copying the embed code in the Download Form Links Excel file and pasting it into either the header or the footer sections of your website. Specifically, the code can be added after the closing </html> tag or within the <head> tag. See the two examples for placement below:
Main District Website
We recommend embedding the main Let’s Talk! landing page on a page of the district website that includes the same framing as every other page – the same header, side bar, etc. This way, community members will recognize that the Let’s Talk! page belongs safely within the district’s website – not on an external, potentially harmful site. A Contact Us page is a perfect place to embed your Let’s Talk! landing page, as your community members will already be accustomed to the navigation.
- During the initial stages of setting up Let’s Talk!, it can be helpful to set up this new page with a private/hidden setting. This way, you, your project champions, and your K12 Insight team will be able to preview your progress and ensure that everything is coming together and displaying correctly. You can also share a link to this private/hidden page with your own new Users if you’re interested in internal Let’s Talk! practice prior to your public launch.
URL and embed codes provided are dynamic: all changes you make within your Let’s Talk! account will automatically be reflected on your page(s).
You will note that the Excel spreadsheet from the Download Form Links page includes a URL/Embed Code pair for each additional Topic. Further, if your Let’s Talk! page is translated into multiple languages, you will see a URL/embed code pair for each Topic in each additional language.
Each URL or embed code for these Topics will lead directly to the Let’s Talk! form for that area, pre-selecting the Topic rather than requiring a participant to click in from the Main Landing Page. This offers you a variety of options to reach your Customers.
- For example, you may choose to embed the form for a specific department on that department’s contact page.
- Consider linking to your own topic/school/department in your email signature, in newsletters, and any time you’re looking for feedback on a specific topic.
