Save Progress During Form Completion – Feature Update

Save & Return offers form visitors the ability to log in and save progress of their form, then return in the future. Starting a form before logging in, however, used to mean that the form had to restart after login. To save their answers, form visitors needed to log in first.

That has changed. Formsite’s Save & Return now allows form visitors to save their progress at any point in the form completion process.

Making new forms can cause anxiety for some new form builders who wonder if they’re making the best form possible.

A/B testing lets form owners track the success of changes to the form or survey.

  • Headline changes
  • Number of items per page
  • Required personal information

Addressing Email Notifications Using Email and Routing Items

Formsite addressing email Notifications

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.
