Setup Help and Best Practices

Codeword Sweepstakes - Entry Form

This guide will step through how to create the Entry/Registration form for your Codeword Sweepstakes.


Each of your promotions will automatically inherit the Default Form, which can be customized within your Organizations' Settings.

Tip! The platform uses smart registration. This means that when a user who has previously participated in any contest with your group in the past enters their email on page one, page two will only require them to complete fields they have not previously provided data for in the past. Smart registration can be bypassed by creating a single page registration form.

Adding Items

Create a new Custom Item

New items that can be customized and added to the registration form

Add a Starred Item

Items that you have created in the past, and have starred because you frequently use them

Locate and add an Existing Field

Utilize the Search All Items option

Tip! When you create an item in your sweepstakes, that item can be used in all other promotional content you create. This means that you will not want to edit existing items unless you want that change to appear on all other promotions in which that item has been used.

Customizing your Form


You can drag and drop items to the desired area on the entry form


You can edit the the Text, Answers, Required Status, and Starred Status/Starred Nickname of an item


You can remove an item from the form by clicking on the gray x to the right of the item

Adding a New Opt-in

Enter the Opt-In Text

Pre-Checked or Required Options

Tip! As a best practice, we recommend that you do not require your opt-in unless it is required for legal purposes.

Star and Enter a Starred Nickname for the Opt-In
