Click on URL drop-down. This will open the Select URL window.

In the list find the URL you want this form to reside at. When you assign a form to a URL, it automatically creates a virtual URL below that for the form itself based on the name you gave the form. So you could wind up with a URL like /forms/help_site_test_form.

Forms can ONLY be assigned to a URL that is using the forms application skin. For more information on URLs, see URLs.

Click OK.
