Before diving into the features and key differences between each form, it's recommended to get familiar with Lead Forms in general if you haven't already.
This block can be added via Add New Block, and selecting Forms in the categories, and scroll down until you find Lead Form.
Also important to note, that this block contains a few other type of forms other than Lead Forms, such as Home Valuation Form, and Mortgage Calculator.
Lead Form Form Features
