Add recaptcha v3 and remove v1 since it is no longer supported. Same goes for WFB.

I agree with many on here. It seems form designer has been built for producing nice forms and it does. However it now appears as an afterthought of how the processing scripts should be attached and a tutorial has been produced.
However it is clear that the method provided is illogical, repetitive and time consuming.

The processing script should be produced from within the form designer program and not have to build two forms and make sure the names are the same etc. Totally inefficient and lack forethought.

So like many processing scripts within form designer so only one form has to be produced.


I agree with mostly what is said here. Processing scripts is what made Webform Builder so good. I find that very important updates need to be addressed in Form Designer:
1. Scripts
2. Recaptcha V2, V3
3. Conditional elements
4. Date Time Picker
5. (least important but still a nice upgrade) Multiple Page forms

I know you guys at CC are working very hard. Keep up the good work!

As a small business which creates websites for client's we've been using CC software for many years. Site Designer is a great tool as is Form Builder, both of which we use almost daily. If Form Builder had all it's current functionality with the new features of Form Designer (front and backend in one) I'm 100% sure you'd be on to a winner. Appreciate there may be a lot more to this than meets the eye, but even if another purchase is ncecsaary, I for one, would be on board.

I know both of these can be integrated but it seems too much effort, "Don't make me think" - the phrase we apply to our client's sites as much as possible.

Just one for the wishlist from us.

I would like a multiple select available. I'm changing it after export and it's easy to do but some might not want to.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Now sure is anyone from Coffee Cup reads the forums but they really missed the mark with Form Designer not being capable of back end scripts, validation and conditionals as mentioned by Eric Rohloff a while back. Going back and forth from Web Form Builder to Form Designer is not very productive. I know the price point is good but I would have paid a bot more if the back end scripts and more were added that Web Form Builder currently has.

Hi Angel,

I completely agree with you. When I first became aware of this I along with other advisors did mention this to the CC Staff. I'm not sure why they chose to go this route with the new form builder, I'm guessing is server hosting related, but I too would have paid more for the application if this feature was included. To be honest I don't even use Form Designer at all... I will wait for it to be addressed before I switch which is too bad because the customization that Form Designer has is amazing.
