No you can't
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Does anyone using Form Designer know if once you design a front end for a form know if you can then open that in Form Builder to finish it so that you also have the back end?
Have a look here and scroll to Connect to any Script it hints that WFB will be updated to import forms that are created in WFD

I’d like to use new form Designer but I’d like a trial period of a few days so I can see if I can integrate it into my RSD. I have scripts and PHP with all my Web Builder forms now and call them through RSD.
Live in a steady joy!

Hi Dick,

Designing is one of my strengths but coding my own forms or working with the code that Webform Builder has is not. It would be great if you could show us how you did it.

Hi All

I know it is early days for this new application and looking at the interface and how it works is a huge step forward from the old Form Builder however, after reading some of the feedback so far I am a bit concerned. It seems at this point that the "back-end" code (see screen capture of old Web Form Builder) will not form part of this new form and it will have to be coded afterwards manually.

I'm not a PHP/JavaScript coder and I totally rely on the current Form Builder to code that for me. Unless this back-end are included at a later date, this new Form Designer would be a total waste of money for me.

We use a lot of conditional formatting - e.g. a pull-down that makes a form multi-use - to display fields and then route the form to different e-mail addresses based on the pull-down. This works great win WFB. I cannot seem to find where I can do this in Form Designer. Any hints? TIA, Mark

Not sure if this forum is the correct one to post questions with regards to the new Form Designer Ver 3.0 (BETA)?

Hey there Chris,

We wanted to give everybody the opportunity to play with and test the app over the Christmas holiday first. We will be opening a dedicated forum for Form Designer next week.

Hi Bob

Any news on the dedicated forum for the Form Designer yet?

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
