I hope you can do better than that
I’ve just tried the preliminary demo of Formoid. Immediately, because I’ve ran into several people lately,
asking me how to develop their forms themselves. I’ve been working with Acrobat, LivecycleDesigner, and FormsCentral.
Formoid has the best comparison with Formscentral sample html form code, but I hope you can do better than that.
My suggestions would be:
•When a file has been chosen to upload, give a confirmation of the chosen file. By text or by thumbnail. Or both.
•Where is the data stored? Would this work on a database on your server, or even beter: can I configure it to work on my own server? There you would beat FormsCentral.
•Give me some more design tools: not one font size, but more. Give me color libraries, templates, more fonts, gradients, even pictures to place in the background.
•I would love fields to do some calculations for me (FormCentral doesn’t).
•I would love fields to validate input (date between given period of time, amount larger than x, etc)
•I hope for a scale (set to 3 to 7 steps from bad to excellent for example)
•I hope there’s going to be form logic, where certain fields are left out because of certain given answers in other fields.
•split the form into several parts including a progress bar
•What does a button do? I don’t see any interface to define actions
Keep up the good work. It looks promising!
