Formstack is a professional form app that includes all of these features, and more. It comes with an easy-to-use form editor that makes it as easy to create a form as you'd expect in any other app, but then also includes the advanced features you need to get the most out of your forms and the data that goes into them.

It all starts with your form. You can use Formstack's themes to customize your forms' design, or use CSS to tweak your forms on your own. Formstack's editor gives you a lot of flexibility to make your form work as you'd expect, complete with a wide range of form fields, field validations, conditional logic, and more. But, if you want to customize your layout even further, you can even access the form's full HTML code and change anything you'd like. You can even have Formstack automatically import forms that are already on your site to manage everything in one place.

Formstack then makes it easy for your contacts to fill out your forms. Your forms will be mobile ready to work on the go, and 508 compliant so they're easy for visually impaired users to fill out. You can enable social network autofill to let people automatically import their name, email and more from Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. And, if your form's taking too long, they can save their progress, then come back and finish later.

The most important thing about your forms isn't actually your forms: it's the data that's put into them. Formstack makes sure that data works the way you want it to. You can set up routing rules to direct users to your site or payment processors when they've finished filling the form, and send the form data to the correct people or apps via Formstack's API and webhooks. There's even email logic to send personalized emails to people after they fill out your form.

The things people enter in your forms—even their names are email addresses—are secure information, and Formstack also includes features to make sure your form data stays safe. You can use approval workflows so your team will be able to sort through form entries as they come in, and to make sure only the correct people see the form entries. There's also data encryption you can enable on your form database, and an option to add your PGP public key to encrypt your email notifications.

Formstack includes the form tools that can help your business effectively use forms in your workflows, while also making them easy for your customers to fill out.
