Hi Alireza, You need to install Episerver Forms in your Alloy project and then you can add gadgets in the admin area. Open the Package Manager Console window and run Install-Package EPiServer.Forms command, in case you received any error then run Update-EPidatabase

Please add a package source in your visual studio and then try.
Go to Tools -> Options -> NuGet Package Manager -> Package Source -> Add (+).
Name- e.g. Episerver ( you can give any meaning full name which you wish).

Thank you very much!
After installing updates the command was run.

Hi Alireza,

Please follow this-

If Forms was installed, but you do not see the Forms tab, select Settings > Add Gadget. The Gadgets dialog box appears. Select Forms and Form Elements to add them to your Assets pane.
