Slate Form Embed

Embeds allow you to place some third-party code on your website that users need to visibly see. This differs from Tracking Pixels, another type of embed, because tracking pixels aren't visible to the user.

Note: you must request the Slate bundle to use this feature. Learn how to request bundles in the Add Bundles tutorial.

Current block types: 

  • Slate: the Slate service helps institutions of higher education streamline their admissions process. Within Web Express, you can place lead generation forms on your site that are connected to your Slate account.
