I opened an existing Web Form project, which was working fine, made a small change, saved it, then went to "Export > Manual Server Setup."

When I did this, the "Browse For Folder" dialog appeared, defaulting to the Desktop of the computer.

It would be a great help if this dialog would open to the directory to which I last exported. (It would be easy to save this data along with the project.) Failing that, it would also save me a lot of time and aggravation if it would open defaulted to the directory from which I loaded the project.

Is there any way to do this already? If not, can you please include it soon?

Thanks,

This really is more of a suggestion, but it's related to the new conditional forms. I tried the demo form ( http://team.coffeecup.com/forms/animstudio_form/ ) and while it's super awesome, it doesn't work in IE7. I get JavaScript errors. It's very easy for you to tell me to upgrade to a newer, better browser (I have to keep IE7 for web based work app), but it doesn't help users on my site that want to fill out my form (about 150 of the 7300 visitors I had in the past 30 days, according to GA).

I don't expect you to support ever browser that's ever been made, but my suggestion is to consider implementing a browser check that will inform the form user "We see you are using an older browser and some features of this form may not work as designed. Please consider upgrading your browser to the latest version for a better web experience". Just a thought.

Thanks for pointing that out Chad. We are looking into this now. I can say we will not support IE6 though. ;)

This is re-posted from the WFB general discussion:

"Typically a job application form that my former employers use was four sides of A4 with one of those being an supporting letter, so it took a long time to fill out. That said, there was a facility to save a partly completed form and then come back to it later.

Multi-page forms are on the "coming soon" horizon looking at the WFB specs, so will there be a facility to for a user to save a form part way through before coming back to complete it and make a final submission?"

I think that there would be a lot of mileage in this sort of facility. Really you could make a living out WFB by doing forms and surveys for people as long as you could do the data analysis on the latter.

Along the lines of payment options,

1) Allow previsions for multiple payment options (paypal, Google Wallet, etc) on 1 form.
2) Allow for multiple payment options within a vendor. I would like to office both one time payment and subscriptions
3) Option to wash my truck.. (sorry, but it's got so much hard to think of something else I want) :D

But option 1 and 2 seem reasonable... Thanks for a great product!

Hello, All -

Currently it isn't possible to have radio buttons and a text field in the same element. However, this would be extremely useful - especially for donation forms, where such things are normal.

Typically a form will include a selection of radio buttons with predefined monetary values. The last option, however, is usually "Other". When a user clicks on this option, a text box will open allowing them to input their own sum.

Now that we have conditional boxes and form payment options, this feature is the next logical step.

It has been discussed here...

http://www.coffeecup.com/forums/web-form-builder/radio-buttons-and-text-field-in-the-same-element/?post_id=200590

I hope you will find a way to incorporate it in a future update.

Now we can use a Dropdown list as a contact list.
But we can only select one recipient.

It might be very useful if Checkboxes could also be used for this.
Then we could select more than one recipient.

To explain my idea please have a look on this page: http://sn.coffeecup.com/forms/contact%20us/

Maybe someone already has a solution for this. In that case I would like to hear about it.

Web Form Builder:
All other fields can be adjusted for width.
Is it possible to give the Submit button an adjustable width?
At present if you want some additional text you can only achieve it by shrinking the font.
