You can now restrict minimum/maximum file sizes for image uploads. Read more about the image upload question type here.
The SSN question type is now available. The SSN question type allows sensitive input to be masked and check for the proper 9 digit input.
Live preview is now available in the studio theme editor. This preview will show all styling changes to components rendered exactly as they will in a deployed production flow. Go check it out, and learn more about styling flows here.
If you are using Segment or Amplitude with formsort there is new step-by-step documentation for cross domain tracking in Segment and Amplitude.
Autosave is now available to all Pro and Enterprise tier clients! Enabling Autosave will cause the form to retain a responder’s answers should they leave and come back to the flow. In-progress answers are saved after 3 seconds have passed from a responder’s input. Answers will also be submitted to enabled integrations if “When the flow is finalized or abandoned” is enabled in submission frequencies.
Enable Autosave by going into Flow -> Setting -> Behaviors
Read more here in our documentation.
You can now create and view a Google sheet straight from the Google sheet integration setup page. Using the Google sheet integration is the fastest way to get your form up and running with Formsort. Read more about the integration here.
The top and bottom action bars can now be aligned with content in the layout editor. Previously it was difficult to have all content aligned in a layout, and users would work around this by approximating the top or bottom action bars in this manner using margin, padding, or other spacing, but now enabling “Limit action bar width” will ensure that the action bars are aligned with the content. Read more about layouts here.
Workspace domain detection for new accounts is now available for all workspaces. This means new users that sign up with an existing domain will automatically be given the option to join the existing workspace associated with the domain. Learn more about domain detection here.
You can now use the new Google Cloud integration to receive uploads, such as from file upload, image upload, or signature questions. Read more about how to use Google Cloud Storage and Formsort here.
You can now retrieve the JSON structure of your flow. This is available by default in the payload when you are subscribed to the variant_revision_published event. Use the flowContent object to track how your flow evolves over time, run tests, or perform further operations on delivery. Read more about the JSON structure here.
"label": "Are you a robot?",
You can now use the ability to use $all, $elemMatch and $size operators in conditional logic. Read more about this usage in the official mongo documentation.
You can now use Rudderstack with Formsort!
If you are already using Rudderstack to analyze how customers use your product, you can now emit events straight from a Formsort form into Rudderstack. These events can give you more insight into how a user is interacting with your form and can be analyzed against the rest of your customer data.
For more context, please see our reference for Analytics Events here, and how to edit the shape of the event payload.
We've added a setting for how URLs are generated in Formsort: you now have the choice of using the step's index or the step ID in the URL.
Step ID is useful because it is a stable identifier. For example, if you are tracking conversions in Google Analytics, you wouldn't need to create a new conversion funnel every time we add or drop a step in the flow, since the goal URL remains stable.
Enable it at Settings > Behavior > Use step ID instead of index
(This might end up being the default soon)
We've added a date and time question type.
This allows responders to provide a more precise time in their local timezone. The answer is stored as an ISO-8601 timestamp at the UTC timezone, like 2022-09-19T15:54:41.111Z
You can now use the new Google sheets integration, send form data to Google Sheets directly - without involving engineers or 3rd party workarounds.
Consider the Google Sheets integration if:
- You or your business uses the Google suite of products
- The traffic to your form is low. Using Google Sheets will count towards your Google API limits. Formsort cannot guarantee delivery of responses if this limit is reached
- You have a one-off form for a small use case
- You need to quickly get your form up and running, and you have no engineering resources
- You’re a healthcare business that needs HIPAA compliance and have signed a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Google Workspace products. Note: Google Sheets uses high-level encryption to safeguard protected health information (PHI), but you still need to sign a BAA as this data will be stored on Google’s servers
Read more about the integration here.
Inline display of conditional logic
You can now view conditional logic inline when editing a flow within the studio. This will let you know what steps of a flow will be executed based on defined criteria, and help you to easily create complex flows branching logic. Read more about adding conditional logic here.
Celebrate with confetti
You can now celebrate with confetti during your flow.
You can enable this feature in the Style -> Animations section for a step. Formsort allows you to choose from a variety of preset animations as well as their timing and easing functions, read more here.
Tooltips for select choices
Choices in a select question can now have tooltips attached. Use this to explain choices that would otherwise be too complex or too long to have in one line. Read more about questions here.
Copy variants to a new flow
You can now copy an existing variant into a new or existing flow.
A flow collects information to fulfill a specific goal within your organization: for example, a new user sign-up flow. Variants exist within a flow, and are generally used to make small variations to the same content. Read more about flows and variants here.
Seven new themes for flows
The Formsort team has released seven new themes that can be used in flows. Themes provide the underlying style settings for a flow, and starter themes can be used as a basis for developing the perfect theme for your own flows.
Content templates for flows
New flows created will be offered the ability to start blank, or to choose from a few pre-canned sets of content. Content templates are a great place to start when creating content for your flows.
- New flows include templates for e-commerce, fin-tech, and healthcare.
You can now send responder data to multiple locations for the same integration.
- Each integration can have up to 3 destinations.
- This functionality is currently available for BigQuery, PostgreSQL, Redshift and Webhooks.
