Intake Forms can be printed or sent electronically to a Client's Portal account to be filled out.
There are two ways to create Client Intake Forms:
- You can create a Dynamic form and Copy it over to the Client Portal.
- OR, you can create an Intake Form from the Intake tab. To do so, see steps below. And then send the Intake Form to the Client Portal.
NOTE: You cannot upload your own intake forms at this time. You must either create a dynamic form or edit existing forms.
Create Intake Form from Intake Tab
- Click Organization in primary navigation bar and select Client Portal in side menu.
- Click Intake Forms tab.
- Click New Intake Form button.
- Enter Form Name.
- Select to display Form with 1 or 2 columns.
- Click and drag appropriate element to add to Dynamic Form. See descriptions below.

Dynamic Fields are NEW! Dynamic Fields pulls information from TheraNest into the Form for you. For example, you can now insert a Name Dynamic Field and TheraNest will pull the Client Name into the Form for you. Currently this is one way (from TheraNest to the Dynamic Form) but we are continuing to expand our Dynamic Fields options and the way the operate.
