Web Form Builder allows me to set up forms and collect data using my own server. I've been using it for years. I cant see after buying the new Form Designer - Beta ifI can do the same. Is it possible?

Also I have started to use your competitor Simfactic Forms more because of their excellent validation rules for each field. Do you plan to add more such validations too, to Web Form Builder / Form Designer. e.g. A ranking system would be welcome. I.e. please rank the following 5 answers from 1 to 5 in order of importance. So when 1 is chosen for one answer the other 4 answers cannot be selected as 1.

I have bought most of your Apps in the last 10 years and will continue to do so. Very best

Hi Howard,
Unfortunately Form Designer has no back end scripts yet. I'm not sure what the total plan is for it but I would think they would eventually add validation scripts and calculation scripts also. I love the flexibility in the layout compared to Form Builder but miss the scripts need to make a form fully functional.
I did a test a while back and setup an example of how to use the Form Builders backend scripts with Form Designer.

Do testing on conditionals and validation now.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thank you Eric. What is the point of Form Designer if you cant use it to collect inputs unless you use S_drive. I am disappointed i purchased this beta version.

You can use it on your own server but you have to code the backend scripts yourself or use my work around.
