The 14 Best Online Form Builders for Every Task
There's more to forms than contact and order forms on websites. If your business needs team members to track inventory, perform audits, create work orders, and more, a form's often the best way to quickly enter the needed data. And yet, the average form wouldn't work very well for these and other similar needs, since you might not have an internet connection when filling out such forms.
iFormBuilder is designed specifically to be used for these and other mission critical on-the-go jobs. It lets you make forms that'll display in its mobile apps, and they'll work offline and sync your data when you're connected again. And, the forms let you take advantage of mobile-specific features like geolocation, recording pictures and audio, and signing a form with your finger.
Using iFormBuilder requires both its website and mobile apps for iOS and Android. You'll create your forms online, adding elements to an iPhone-style editor on the left and then tweaking settings on the right. It's a bit more complex than most form apps, but also more powerful, since iFormBuilder exposes some database-like features in your forms. You can create form elements that search through your data tables, calculate results based on previous entries, apply customer business rules, and more. Then, there are the more traditional input fields, along with fields to add pictures, record audio, sign the form, scan a barcode from your form, or even collect third-party hardware devices.
Then, you'll open your forms on iFormBuilder's iOS, Android, or web apps to fill them out on-the-go or from your computer. That's when the extra form fields come in handy. You'll be able to have your team capture as much on-the-field data as possible, and then have it saved back to your apps whenever they're online. And if you work with a multilingual team, you can translate your form fields and gather data in any language you need.
And, you'll be able to keep your data safe. iFormBuilder is HIPAA, FISMA and ISO 9001 compliant, and you can encrypt individual fields for extra security. You'll then be able to use your data, either viewing it online in a table or map view, or download it as PDF or a spreadsheet. Or, you can get an RSS or XML feed of your data, or integrate with Zapier, to send your data to your other apps without any extra coding.
If your team's been relying on paper forms to track data on the go, iFormBuilder's forms might be the solution for you. They'll let you gather data in the same places you could with a paper form, and then quickly turn that data into reports and push it to the other apps your team relies on.
