Form Assembly Updates-Oct. 9

Disclaimer: As of June 2018, Form Builder 5.0 is the default version of the FormAssembly Form Builder. Visit the release blog post to learn about the Form Builder 5.0 improvements.

Welcome to this week’s FormAssembly updates.

Form Builder Update

This week’s other big update is in the Form Builder. We’ve redesigned the buttons for selecting question types with the hope of making them easier to see and understand. Many users had particular questions about the file upload button, so we changed the icon to make this selection clearer. We also added labels to each answer type option for clarity’s sake.

More HTTP POST Connector Updates

Expanding on last week’s improvements to the HTTP POST connector, this week we made that connector available in interactive mode. Previously, the connector could only be run in background mode, meaning that the result of the POST connector would never impact form submission or be available to the user. In contrast, interactive mode enables the connector to run before the user is redirected to the “Thank You” page. Submitted data can be shown to the user, either in an auto-responder email or on the “Thank You” page, and it can also be used in email notifications of submissions. To use the data from the POST connector in an auto-responder, email notification, or on the “Thank You” page, use the %%TFA_POST%% alias.

Coming Soon: New “My Forms” Page

We’re redesigning the “My Forms” tab to make it easier and faster to navigate through the different steps of creating and configuring your web forms.
The form you are currently working on will always be listed at the top of the list. You will also be able to open or collapse categories to keep your list to a manageable size, and you can conveniently access all the different configuration pages and actions from a drop-down menu. The drop down menu is located at the end of each row in the Active tab. From here you will be able to view, publish, edit, and configure your form, as well as copy it into the Form Builder, archive, or delete it. We hope this will streamline your use of FormAssembly and help you be more efficient.
We expect to release this update within the next week or so.
As always, we really appreciate your thoughts and comments. Feel free to leave comments below this post, and suggestions can be entered at the User Voice forum.
