Making new forms can cause anxiety for some new form builders who wonder if they’re making the best form possible. The right questions, the right fonts, the right colors — all can affect the success of the survey or number of submissions. A/B testing lets form owners track the success of changes to the form or survey.
A/B testing means having two or more versions of the form with small differences intended to affect the completion rate. Examples of tests for form differences include:

Types of Registration Forms
Registrations can cover activities and events, or individual registrations like application forms. Some of the popular registration form templates are:
Many account owner’s duties revolve around managing the service level limits. All Formsite service levels have limits on the number of forms and results allowed. Keeping ahead of the limits means deleting forms and results to make more room. On some occasions, deleted forms occur on accident and need restoring. What happens then?
Form owners with the need for multilingual forms and surveys have options with Formsite. Many organizations have users who speak different languages due to location or targeted market. Solutions for multilingual forms include creating multiple manual versions or automating the translation.
The method used depends on whether the translated text exists or if it is possible to get easily. If the translation is not easily obtained, the translation service is usually the best option.
The most common methods for making multilingual forms and surveys are:
Create copies of the form as a different language
Make a single form with rules to show items and/or pages in different languages
Use a translation service like Google Translate to automate the translation
Forms use Notification emails to send messages after each successful form submission. These emails can go to many recipients including those entered into the form and defined addresses.
Additionally, addressing email Notifications can use routing items for addresses based on selected form answers. Sending only the needed email helps to prevent spam complaints and only send high-value messages.
A powerful tool for Formsite form owners is the Success Page. Choosing from the variety of formats, the form owner can show a basic message, add custom HTML and scripts, or redirect the visitor to a different place. The Success Page always appears after the form’s submission and there are three available formats.
A popular use for the Workflow features is to collect an approval for a form submission. The approval Workflow begins with the initial form submission, triggering the Notification email. The email contains the link for the approver to view the request and approval items.
Creating a copy of the form just for an approval can take up valuable form space, though. Using the same form for the approval Workflow is possible using Rules to show the approval items.
