Happy New Year and 2014 Wrap-Up

Hannah Wright • January 26th, 2015

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful year, and that you’re off to a great start in 2015.

Here at FormAssembly, we’ve had an amazing year and are growing every day — and you know what? We couldn’t have done it without you. So far, you’ve saved time by creating over 340,000 forms and have received an impressive 49,000,000 responses!

Plus, we’re super excited to announce that our product has received a satisfaction rating of over 83% this past year. Since we love talking with our customers and helping out along the way, we couldn’t be more thrilled! Here are a few of the flattering things you’ve been saying:

“FormAssembly has worked for our organization for 2 years without a hitch. Thanks.” 

“You guys = awesome.”

“Great product. Easy to use without being a developer.” 

We rolled out some exciting new features over the year, too. Here are a couple of highlights:

Plus, we’ve been expanding our team. Mike, Adrian, Andrea, Steve, Ryan, and Hannah have joined us in Sales, Customer Support, and Marketing. Welcome!

Whew! And that’s not all, either. Who could forget the wonderful time we had meeting customers like you at Dreamforce, #PSEWEB, and HighEdWeb?

In addition, we recently released the Premier Plan. It’s packed with advanced features — perfect if you’re looking to do more with your forms.

Needless to say, we’re really looking forward to the year ahead. Have an idea for us? Feel free to post your feature requests and feedback here.

Thanks again for all of your support!

Formula Syntax Checker and Highlighter

Deborah Kim • January 22nd, 2015

Syntax Checker and Highlighter


We’ve just added a syntax checker and highlighter to the Formula Editor! It’s handy when you’re building formulas. Just like in the example screenshot above, the syntax checker will:

  • Highlight fields, aliases, and functions, so it’s easy to tell them apart from standard text.
  • Show errors at the bottom of the editor. This is helpful for troubleshooting, because you can identify and fix a problem (or a stray typo!) right away.
  • Show field names when you hover over an alias. You can check that you’re working with the right field without needing to consult a separate list.

Share your thoughts

If you have any feedback to share, send us a message through the orange Help bubble in FormAssembly, leave a comment here, or tweet @FormAssembly! We’d love to hear how the syntax checker is working for you.

Learn more in next month’s class

We’ll walk you through the Formula Editor in our class on Wednesday, February 11 at 2 PM EST!

Coming Soon: Plans & Pricing Changes

Deborah Kim • January 8th, 2015

Heads up: We’re making some big changes this year!

Next week, FormAssembly pricing will increase for new customers, and we’ll be discontinuing the Starter and Pay-As-You-Go plans. If you already use FormAssembly, your account stays the same and your pricing will be grandfathered in. If you’ve been thinking of upgrading, we recommend that you upgrade now to lock in the current price.

We’re also excited to reveal a new plan and upcoming features we think you’ll find useful. We’ll announce more details next week, so watch out!

Add Formulas with the Smart HTML Editor

Deborah Kim • November 24th, 2014

Many of you have requested a better, easier way to add formulas to your form settings, so we’ve been working to improve how you can create and test formulas for dynamic processing. It’s a multi-step rollout, and we’re happy to introduce the first new feature!

In the Notifications tab, Display Options tab, and some connector configuration pages, you’ll find an improved HTML editor where you can directly pick and choose the fields, aliases, and functions available for your form. No longer do you need to consult a separate page, or write them from scratch!

In some places, you won’t see the inline editor, but you can click the Functions icon to open the editor, like so:

What’s next

You can look forward to a syntax checker and highlighter so it’s easier to build and edit formulas.
