Form Builder Updates

We’ve just released Form Builder version 4.3.0! Here’s a quick overview of what’s new:

  • Add links to field labels
  • Use images in place of radio buttons and checkboxes
  • Improved responsiveness across devices
  • Clear formatting tool

To use these new features and improvements, upgrade your existing forms to Form Builder version 4.3.0. When you create a new form, you’ll automatically use the new Form Builder, but you’ll need to upgrade the forms you’ve already built.

To upgrade a form: Open up a form in the Form Builder, and we’ll ask if you’d like to upgrade to the new Form Builder. And that’s it!

For more info about the updates, read on.

 

Add links to labels

For example, you might want to link to a Privacy Policy or Terms of Service directly in the label, instead of adding a hint below the field. This can save you from having to repeat the same text.

Learn more about adding hyperlink text in labels.

Use images for radio buttons and checkboxes

This feature is awesome if you want a highly visual web form. For instance, you might want to make a donation form and emphasize the suggested sponsorship levels. Or you could create a short survey with large images for an engaging, user-friendly experience.

It’s especially helpful for creating simple forms optimized for mobile devices.

And don’t worry — to ensure accessibility, we’ve added places for alt text, so screen readers can access all elements of your form.

Improved responsiveness

We’ve made a significant enhancement to how your web forms resize for mobile devices. Your form fields will work even better on smartphones and tablets — no coding or tweaking required.

Clear formatting tool

Sometimes you’ll need to copy and paste text into the Form Builder, but then you’ll realize that there’s hidden formatting that conflicts with the styling of your form! With our formatting tool, you can simply clear any styles so you’re free to copy and paste whatever content you need.
