Note: This feature is coming soon and is not yet generally available.

 

About

The ProntoForms Form Builder has been completely rebuilt from the ground up -- with a new visual design, greatly improved usability, and new technology for better performance. 

With new capabilities to create forms driven by conditional logic and repeatable sections, building the forms to drive your key businesses processes is fast and intuitive, allowing business users to easily configure any workflow required.

Supported Features

The V2 Form Builder introduces the ability to configure a number of major new form features, and novel ways of building forms.  Some older (and we think less effective) ways of doing things are going away to make room for these new features.

Unsupported features: 

V1 Forms
The V2 Form Builder supports building and editing V2 Forms. Forms created with the V2 Form Builder are automatically in the V2 format.   Older forms ("V1") will open in the Classic Form Builder, but V1 forms can be upgraded to V2.  Learn how to upgrade your forms.

Button group "conditional comments" and Skip Logic
These V1 feature allowed some limited basic conditional logic in forms -- the ability to hide and show a "comments" text field after a button group question, to to skip over pages.   This functionality is replaced by the new conditional logic, which can produce the same behaviour and much more, like hiding/showing additional questions and making them conditionally required, and repeatable sections for entering variable numbers of line items. 

These can be automatically upgraded to these V2 features when you upgrade a form from V1 to V2.

V1 Documents
V1 documents (i.e. PDF, Word, HTML, XML, JSON, CSV) are not compatible with V2 forms, and V2 documents are not compatible with V1 forms.  

V2 PDF, Word, and HTML documents have similarities to old documents, but with many new configuration options.  Read more about those options.   There is also an option to have fully custom documents -- ones that look exactly like your paper forms or other documents, making them better for sharing with stakeholders or customers who expect data to be presented in a certain way. 

V2 JSON, XML, and CSV documents have a new structure and format to support the new form features.   These changes can impact your integrations, so be sure to test out the new format before deploying your forms into production.  Read more here.
