We’re excited to announce that Formstack now has the ability to accept offline form submissions. Our new Offline Forms add-on—powered by Formstack Go, a new mobile app for iOS and Android—allows you to capture form data without a live internet connection, storing the data locally on the device and uploading it to the cloud once a connection is available.

Offline functionality is a top request on the Formstack Ideas site, and we’re happy to bring it to life. Now those in highly mobile fields—such as sales, construction, and manufacturing—have a way to capture information digitally, reducing reliance on paper forms and manual data entry.

Want to know more? Here’s a quick look at Offline Forms and Formstack Go:

Offline Forms Add-On

The Offline Forms add-on allows you to capture form submissions without an internet connection, Wi-Fi, or LTE data usage. Any data submitted while offline will sync to the database as soon as an internet connection is established. The add-on retains third-party web app integrations and workflow automation processes as well, so you can still automate processes and boost productivity from remote locations.

Formstack Go App

Formstack Go + Offline Forms

Formstack Go provides the avenue for accessing your online forms while offline. It also lets you lock a device into a limited kiosk mode, which automatically reloads a form after each submission for continual submission. It also prevents submitters from accidentally exiting out of the form or navigating to a different part of the app, providing a hassle-free form process for events and trade shows. Additionally, the app allows you to add your most important mobile forms to a Quick Menu for easy access.

 

Offline Forms can be added to any Formstack plan. If you’re interested in this powerful offline form functionality, click below to contact our sales team.
