New Form Creator Database

The new Form Creator Database allows central storage of all your form data.  Other features like the drag and drop functionality, form logic, and being able to add the same form to multiple pages have made this new database a powerhouse for form users. 

Converted Forms:

All of your current forms will be converted and stored in the Form Creator Database (found under Tool Databases).  The forms will continue to function as they previously have, but how you download their data and make updates to the forms, has changed.

You can find a list of all of your converted forms in the Form Creator Database:

  1. In the Tool Databases dropdown, select New Form Creator.

  2. In the Category dropdown, select Converted Forms.2017-10-27_10h42_10.png

Use Categories:

We encourage you to create categories to help organize your forms.  To edit current or create new form categories, use the Select Options menu and choose Edit Categories

To add a form to a specific category, use the Properties icon and choose from the Category dropdown.

*Any forms that were converted will automatically be added to the Converted Forms category, but you can update this using the Properties icon.
