What's New

You can now disable the automated spam check

New
If for some reason you don't want our automated spam check to run, it can now be disabled under the settings tab on a given form.

Add your own subject to Submission Notification emails and reply-to changes

New
You can now add your own subject to submission notification emails. If you don't specify a subject it'll be "New submission: My form". If a form is submitted with the field "email" the reply-to for "Submission Notification" emails will now be set to the value of that field. If no email is specified it'll continue to be no-reply@formbackend.com

Transfer a form to another account

New
If you visits a form's settings page, there's now an option to transfer it to another account. Simply turn on the transfer for the form and you'll get a unique code you can give to a user on another account and they can transfer your form and all it's submissons to their account.

Form identifier is now visible and filterable on the forms page

New
We now display the form identifier next to the name of a form in the list of forms - you can filter by that identifier by writing that value in the search field as well.

Added some instructions of how to use place-holders in your emails

Update
I added some instructions of how to use place-holders in your outgoing emails. Things such as only showing text if a subitted value matches a given value as well as how to insert values that falls back to default text if no value is submitted.

Easy way to see if a submission has an attachment

New
We now show a small paperclip icon next to submissions that have attachments in the list of submissions.

Contact options

Update
It wasn't always clear how to get in contact with me, so I have now added a form to the frontpage (using FormBackend of course 😬) and a link in the footer with my email address :)

It's possible to rename/hide form fields inside of FormBackend

New
Sometimes if you use a third-party form plugin for WordPress or other CMSs where you don't have control over the naming of the form fields, it could be handy if it was possible to rename the fields in FormBackend. That is now possible! If you double-click on a field-name when viewing a submission, you can rename it to something else. Be aware that the names HAVE to be unique. Let me know if there are any issues with it. You can hide fields as well by clicking on the little eye-icon next to the field when viewing a submission as well. All of this can be un-done on the settings page, where you will find two fields named "Map fields" and "Hidden fields" if you delete the corresponding line in there, it'll undo what you did on the submissions page.

Files uploaded with a submission now has a preview

New
If you upload an image with a submission we now show a preview of the file when viewing the submission

Search and ordering

New
You can now search for submitted values for a given form as well as sorting forms by name, number of submissions, created at date etc.

Conditional email notifications

New
It's now possible to send yourself (or others) an email if a field in your form contains a certain value. This can be useful if you need to route emails to different people based on let's say a dropdown value or similar

Attachments can now be sent straight to your email

New
We've accepted file uploads for a long time. But up until now we'd only send you a link to the uploaded file, together with the other submitted values when you opted in to receiving an email for each submission. But now there's a new setting on the Notifications tab, where you can opt-in to get the uploaded file sent along as an attachment in the email. Go try it out! 😎

You can now filter your list of forms by name

New
I just added a small search box at the top of your forms list, so you can filter your forms by searching for a name.

Redirect to a custom URL with the submitted values from your form

New
We recently introduced a new feature that makes it possible to redirect to a URL of your choice after someone submits your form - AND pass on the submitted values. Read more about this feature in our blog post [here](https://blog.formbackend.com/redirecting-to-url-form-values)

Merge tags are now supported in the subject

New
You can now use merge tags in the "Notify submitter subject". If you go to a given form and click "Email notifications" - enable "Send email to the person submitting the form" you can insert merge tags in the subject. An example could be a form that has a `name` form field. You can then add a subject: "*|NAME|* thanks for submitting the form!" - then when the user receives the email the *|NAME|* part will be replaced with the value of the `name` field.

FormBackend now supports file uploads

New
We just added support for file uploads via forms. We're still working out usage tiers and how to support it across the different plans, but for now you can test it out. Read more about it in this article: https://formbackend.gitbook.io/help/forms/uploading-files-via-my-form

Improved spam-filtering

New
We've worked on adding improved spam-filtering. That is now live. We've added a new filtering method on the submissions page for a given form, so you can chose to take a look at the submitted spam.

Reporting

New
We've added a (for now) simple reporting page per form, that shows the amount of entries on a given day - as well as the amount of spam filtered on a given day.

Mark all fields as required

New
We've added a new experimental setting where you can mark all fields as required. If a user fills out your form and doesn't fill in all of the fields, we'll show them a message on the submission page, asking them to go back and fill out all of the fields. Be aware, that if you turn this setting on, and redirect to another URL upon submission and all fields are not filled out - we'll do nothing. The submission won't be saved.

You can now add a _redirect_to field to your form

New
We just added support for a `_redirect_to` field in your forms. If you add a hidden field named `_redirect_to` we will redirect to the URL in that field upon submission. This requires a paid plan and won't be possible on a trial account.

New design

New
Formbackend just received a big overhaul and a completely new design. We have some interesting features planned in the near future - and the overhaul of the platform will help us ship those quickly!
