FormAssembly Ideas

Attention

We will be retiring this Idea board in June 2017. Although, this was a great way for us to assess what new features you’d like to see in FormAssembly, we felt we could do better by making the process more interactive.  Therefore, we’d like to introduce to you our Roadmap Series! In these posts we will review upcoming development features in detail and then we’d like to hear your thoughts, comments and ideas on these features in the Comments area towards the bottom of the post.
Click here to join the conversation!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow conditional logic based on the Autosuggest field type

    Currently we cannot create conditional logic based on an Autosuggest field. This would be very helpful because form takers sometimes need to provide an "other" response.

      • Authorize.net - One-time and Recurring Payments in a Single Form

        We would like to request that you implement the functionality to have a form that accepts both One-time and Recurring Payments with Authorize.net, without the One-time payments needing to be sent into Authorize.net as ARB.

        Your instructions for having One-time and Recurring Payments in a Single Form with Authorize.net are located on this page: https://help.formassembly.com/help/340455-authorizenet-connector

        Per the instructions, and as you state on that page: "When using this setup, your one-time charge will mimic a subscription charge. This means it will show up under your Automated Recurring Billing (ARB) section of Authorize.net.”

        It would really be ideal for only recurring…

        • "Skip this step if..." filtering in dynamically generated via pre-fill connector repeatable sections

          In the moment "Salesforce-submit" connector will submit all dynamically generated via pre-fill connector repeatable sections. There is no way to filter them out because generated fields have dynamic index [i] and can not be used in "Skip this step if..." step. It leads to unnecessary API calls which in most cases will fail on mandatory fields. Please make this functionality AMAZING by allowing filtering this use case via "Skip this step if..."

          • Add ability to edit form metadata

            I want to be able to edit the title, description and keyword tags for search engines for our forms. This is helpful for SEO, and I want leads to see our branding and relevant keywords if they see our forms in SERPs.

            • Using variable in validation

              It would very useful if we can use variables in validation rules. It would be especially useful in situation when we set a variable/s via pre-fill connector and can use them in validation.

              • Allow global upgrading of forms in FormBuilder

                Currently to upgrade forms to the newest version of Form Builder you have to do so separately for each form, which makes no sense. Suggest adding the ability to globally update all forms in FormBuilder, or at minimum providing an option to select and 'bulk apply' updates to multiple forms at a time.

                • Update Salesforce When an E-signature is Verified

                  The e-signature feature is great, however, in order to be comparable with other e-signature products, it should really allow a Salesforce admin to track both when the signature is submitted and verified. Currently, we can update Salesforce when the signature is submitted, but we can't later mark that the signature was verified.

                  • Allow connector to override existing data with blanks on a field by field basis, or even by a group of fields (Address blocks)

                    Addresses are made up of multiple fields and you want all of them to be written in a block, otherwise a partially filled in address can mal-form your existing data (only the zip is over written, for example, but an old street/city/state remain). Instead of having to make the whole address field set required in Form Assembly, which decrease completion rates, or allowing all fields to overwrite with blanks, allow the setting "Prevent empty fields from overwriting existing data" to be applied on a field by field basis, or if that is too cumbersome, on a group of fields. You…

                    • Remove Javascript Alert on Failed Submission

                      Currently when a form fails validation the `wFORMS.behaviors.validation.onFail` function ends up getting called it eventually makes a call to JavaScript alert() to display the error data.

                      It would be nice if a user could disable this alert if so desired.

                      • Allow more than two criteria to be used with the autossugest option

                        with the autosuggest option we can upload csv files with two columns only, my idea is to allow more.
                        like :
                        in field like zip code, i can receive the town, the state and the country
                        for exemple, and my csv will look like :

                        zip,primary_city,state,country,
                        10005,New York,NY,US,

                        • Allow form tags to passed through connectors

                          It would be great if we could pass through the categorization tags on the form to be passed through connectors, in particular Salesforce, to be stored in a multipicklist or at least text field. That would allow to report on our Form Assembly survey responses the same we organize them in Salesforce.

                          • SEARCH FUNCTION

                            There needs to be a way to search results. I use the site for submissions to a film festival, and it would be incredibly helpful to be able to search for keywords in results, such as names. As it is I have to either export all the results and search there, or page through my results and ctrl+f search. Not ideal. Also the ability to page through more than one page at a time would be nice.

                                Add a ruler option to the Form Builder so that it is easier to align form elements on a page. (similar to the page ruler in MS Word, MSPowerpoint etc.)

                                • Responsive layout (Desktop, tablet, Smartphone)

                                  Building a form once and having responsive layout coding that means you do not have to build a different form for Desktop and a different one for tablet and a different one for Smartphones. Good example would be responsive templates in Mailchimp) and in some CRM's like Infusionsosft.

                                    • Stop the immediate disablement of the e-signature feature whenever a change occurs to the form

                                      Currently, if a form has e-signature enabled, and a change to the form occurs, the e-signature feature is immediately turned off. Let's not do this. Or at the very least, a pop-up notification needs to come up to let the person know that they will need to go in and manually re-enable the e-signature function. I have had multiple clients make small changes to their form, didn't re-enable the e-signature feature (they weren't aware they needed to) and days went by without an actual e-signature being live in the form. Something on this front must be done.

                                      • Send report once form is closed

                                        Once the set date has passed for the form to be active, it would be great if you could have the results be emailed to an intended recipient(s) instead of downloading the results for each form.

                                          It would be spectacular if we could organize our forms into folders in your dashboard.
