Can an order form be used by itself?

I wanted to use an order form to collect email to contacts & have the confirmation page and thank you pages generated. When I tried that the email from Clickfunnels was collected, didn’t go to the list I identified in my Clickfunnels integration. The confirmation form & Thank you page did not generate.
When I publish the order form I’m told all the elements aren’t connected. Is what I’m trying to do possible?
