FormAssembly Form Builder 5.0 Release: What’s New?

The new release include a fresh look and feel for the Form Builder, a redesigned theme editor with modern themes, improvements to Predefined Content, an enhanced outline view, and more. Overall this update gives you a faster and more streamlined form building experience.

“More intuitive and customizable, our new Form Builder 5.0 makes it even easier for customers to build branded forms that align with their organization’s look and feel. Form Builder 5.0 enhances the capabilities that make our technology such a valuable solution for enterprise data collection,” said FormAssembly’s CEO in a press release regarding Form Builder 5.0.

What’s New?

If you follow our Roadmap blog series, you may already be aware of some of the great changes in Form Builder 5.0.

New Form Builder Look and Feel

The enhanced Form Builder includes a faster and cleaner interface, with smart improvements, such as the ability to “pin” the Add Content menu, and the relocation of the “Form Properties” dropdown menu to the sidebar. The preview mode options are clearly visible in the top right corner of the screen and the save button indicates whether you have unsaved changes in your form.

Completely Redesigned Theme Editor & Themes

If you’ve ever wanted sleeker, more modern themes for your FormAssembly forms, you’ll simply love the new Theme Editor. In addition to redesigned themes and the addition of Google Font options, the Theme Editor can be accessed directly in the Form Builder, making it possible to build and style forms in the same location.

Drag-and-Drop Improvements

Continuing our reputation for offering a drag-and-drop Form Builder, we’re improving this ability with changes such as a handle that makes it easier to drag and drop content, a disappearing toolbar when you’re resizing fields, and the removal of the ability to drag and drop multiple choice questions, which makes it easier to move an entire question.

Predefined Content Improvements

Predefined Content is also seeing some improvements, including a new folder organization, ability to create descriptions for predefined content entries, and category autocomplete when you save predefined content.
