What are some of the advanced features that users can add to forms without any coding or programming knowledge?

Our goal is to make every feature as user-friendly as possible. Users can try all the features of forms.app without any coding knowledge, including advanced features. Once they have added their questions and other form fields, for example, they can:

  • Set conditions: This allows them to show or hide some form fields based on their respondents’ answers. By adding conditions, users can collect necessary information without making their forms too long for respondents.
  • Use calculator: The calculator is a feature to calculate a score based on the answers of a form or survey taker. Users can add points to specific answers and show the overall score at the end of their forms. It is also possible to show custom messages on Thank-you pages for different score ranges.
  • Integrate with third-party applications: On forms.app, users can integrate their forms with other applications, such as Google Sheets, Discord, or Mailchimp. This will help them transfer their data to other applications in real time.
  • Add a product basket field to sell products online: forms.app has a powerful form field called “Product Basket.” Users can use it to display their products and actually sell them with a form. They can also upload photos for their products, add size, color, or other options, enter stock information, and more. It is a capable field that can easily compete with other methods.
  • Set geolocational restrictions: It is a feature to restrict form responses to one place. For example, if a local business creates a form for their website or to sell their products, they can adjust geolocation settings and allow submissions from only a specific area.

Are forms able to be styled to look like their website? How are the forms integrated into websites?

Yes, users can thoroughly change how their form looks. When it comes to design options, you see that forms.app did not hold back. Users can manually change the visual aspects of their forms, such as colors, backgrounds, border shapes, and more. And if they want to finish this process faster, they have an entire library of free themes available to them. Users can simply choose one of these themes and change their form design with only one click.

Once users create their form, they can head over to the share tab to see all the sharing options. They can choose the “Embed as Iframe” option to integrate their form into a web page. Users can even add their forms as a feedback button to their websites. It’s possible to adjust its sizes and preview how it looks before using the embedding code. With the right design, forms can easily blend into any website.
