Form Page Follow-up

Company News

It has really been amazing to see how much this feature has been used (and commented on) already. During the first three days (two of which were over the weekend), you guys created over 1000 forms! To be honest, we didn't realize how much demand was out there for this.

Because of that, and because of your vocal responses, we decided to start working on a reports feature right now. We planned out the details this morning and I think it's going to be a really nice additional feature. It'll give you an excel spreadsheet of all the submissions that will be accessible at any time.

Next to the reports feature, the most requested thing by far is the ability to add a form without having to devote a whole page to it. This is a bit embarrassing to say, but we actually never thought about that until now. We've been giving it some thought, and we have a couple good ways we could do this, but either way will take some serious work to implement. We hear you loud and clear about how useful this would be, so we'll keep considering how and when to do this.

As far as the other questions go, as usual, anything that we can do quickly, we'll try to knock out asap. We already fixed the issue with the enter key inadvertently submitting the form, and we've made about a dozen other small fixes, too. There's nothing like having 1000 people test out a product in three days.

For things like hidden/hard-coded text, rules that show/hide other form items, etc, we'd love to be able to add functionality like that, but it's probably not something we're going to do in the near future.

Payment processing is definitely something we would love to add. As always, if/when we add it, we want to get it right, rather than just adding a crappy quick fix. It's not something we're going to be able to do immediately, but we may tackle it in the future.

The truth with all the possible features is that we can only do so much at one time. The photo album feature is the next thing on the dock, so the more we go back and try to perfect the form page, the more the photo albums (and everything else) gets pushed back.

The good news is, though, that our development team is getting better and faster all the time. As we speak (or as you read?) we're working on several projects at the same time, and as usual, we'll show them to you as soon as we can!

Thanks for being such great fans and customers.
