FS: How did you hear about Formstack?

PM: Formstack was recommended by our web site development partner, Quinn Interactive

FS: How do you currently use Formstack?

PM: Subscriptions to our magazine and newsletter, requests for our webinar slides and templates, submissions to our job board and general inquiries.

FS: How has Formstack solved a business/organizational issue?

PM: It has made creation and management of all our web site forms much simpler. Also, having all of the submitted data in a central database makes reporting very simple.

FS: What do you like best about the product?

Its ease-of-use. The ability to store submissions in a database. The conditional logic is also a great tool.

FS: What features do you find most helpful?

PM: The conditional logic is a feature we find most useful.


FS: What improvements to Formstack would you like to see?

PM: We would like to see the ability in the e-mail submission to not include the questions that do not get answered. Also, the ability to send e-mailed submissions to different people based on a selection (e.g. if Billing is selected in a list send to the Billing Dept., if Sales is selected, send to Sales Dept.,etc.).

FS: Any specific features you would like to see?

PM: For check-box responses, show some other indicator, rather than repeating the question. A simple “yes” would work fine.

FS: Any other tips/tricks/words of wisdom you would like to share with others users/readers?

PM: Test different versions of a form. For example, we have found different response rates when we use a drop-down list versus a series of radio buttons.
