"Pin" a Form to Your Home Screen



"Pin" commonly-used forms to your Home Screen (iOS) or Start menu (Windows 10), and you'll be able to go directly to that form without having to navigate through the ProntoForms app. When you tap the form, it will bring up a new, blank version of that form on your mobile device.

Please keep in mind that using a pinned form will not trigger a reconcile, and therefore you may not be using the most updated version of the form.

This feature requires ProntoForms for Windows 10 5.0 or higher, or ProntoForms for iOS 7.6-10.01

Your pinned forms will remain as shortcuts as long as you desire. To delete them, follow the instructions below.


  1. Tap and hold the icon until all the icons begin to wobble.

  2. Select Unpin from Start.
