New Features: Context-Help on Mobile Forms, Dynamic Data Sources using SFTP/FTP, Template-driven HTTP Data Destination

We are pleased to announce the availability of several new features in the ProntoForms system.

  • Context-Help for the Questions on Your Mobile Forms
    We have expanded the context-help feature for the forms on your mobile device. For some time now, you have been able to link your questions to help videos published on YouTube. With this release, you can now add help content by entering text directly into the form builder or by linking to any URL on the web. The question help feature is supported on the latest versions of our Android and iOS (iPad/iPhone/iPad Touch) mobile apps. For more information, visit:
  • New Dynamic Data Source using Secure FTP (SFTP) or FTP
    You can now configure the ProntoForms system to periodically connect to your SFTP or FTP server, download a CSV, XML, or JSON data source file, and distribute the updated data to the forms your mobile devices. This is a nice addition to the existing dynamic data source options using Google Spreadsheets, Dropbox, and HTTP web servers. For more information, visit:
  • New Template-Driven HTTP Data Destination
    The ProntoForms Data Destination Architecture gives you a number of methods for delivering your mobile form data to your back-office systems. Until now, the data formats (like XML and JSON) that have been delivered have not been configurable by customers. With the new template-driven HTTP data destination, a template engine is now available to completely customize the data that is sent to your server. Generate your own XML or JSON structure, or any other text-format that suits your needs. For more information, visit:
