1. New Form Generator Add On

A common element of many websites is "add forms". Whether they are contact forms, surveys, timeclock reports, or just any kind of form where you need to capture user input. With the new Form Generator add on, you instantly create add forms for adding content into your CMS Builder database. Automatically generate all the form code needed based on an existing Section Editor (ex. News, Reviews, Quote Request, etc)

What Form Generator does is automate that entire process.  You just select a section you want to generate a form for, click the button, and it generates all the code for you.  It supports almost all the CMS field types: text field, text box, list, checkboxes, date, etc. And also automatically generates error checking code that matches the CMS Field Editor.  So you can make fields be required, unique, have min/max length requirements, only allow certain chars, etc.  And it just works.  It generates all the code for you which you can then edit and style as needed.  

Create as many different forms based on different Section Editors on the site as needed.

Allow users to add content without logging into CMS Builder or require user to be logged in (using Website Membership add on) to add content.

Forms generated use Bootstrap styles but can also be styled as needed with changes to the form code.

The Form Generator will be a huge time save when setting up forms on the site and make collecting user submitted content easy.

Possible uses could include:

  • Contact form
  • Request quote form
  • Service/Product reviews
  • Service/Product ratings
  • Bug tracking
  • Feature requests
  • Surveys
  • Support Request form
  • Registrations
  • Registrations
  • Bookings
  • Request for more information on product/service
  • Submit testimonials
  • Simple order requests
  • Enter vehicle fleet details (mileage, service, etc)
  • Staff hours

Really any data can be collected from users.
