I have seen some online web form builders have a feature to upload file(s) to a cloud location such as DropBox, Box, Google Drive... etc. I would love to have that capability with it being able to create an upload directory named for the form ID it is attached to. Any hope for such a feature ?

Hi all,

Excellent software it has helped me out a lot.

One possibly simple suggestion would be to have the option of exporting/logging data to a custom csv file rather than one created by the form.

For example I'd like to export the data to a branded csv file however, uploading a custom csv file into the directory with the correct file name does not work and a second version is created (e.g form-results.csv / form-results1.csv).

Is there a way round this?

thanks

Tried searching before requesting this, but can we get it to auto encrypt the passwords when they go into a MySQL database. It's sad to review them in plain text!

Another suggest as well is to have it check for an existing username, so that you can have folks register with the same username multiple times. Cheers~

GeekWare, both of your requests can be accomplished quite easily by writing your own myformname.php to replace the one the form builder generates. Inserting to a Mysql datbase has plenty of examples if you Google it and changing the variables to the needed form will be there also. I used the form builder to generate over 20 forms on one of my sites and everyone has a custom formname.php to process the data.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

I would like to have the default checked boxes set so that they cannot be checked on the visual side of the software. To explain what I mean, I have just re-uploaded my form 3 times because I had accidentally hit one of the check boxes on the left side and it set it as checked so of course it then shows up on the main form as already checked when you upload it. Would be nice if the default checks could only be set via the settings on the right side and not affected on the left visual area. They can be checked on both ways now, just would need to remove the ability on the visual area. Hope that makes sense. :)

Would love the program to respond in kind to the order of the fields when it spits them out in the email results. For example:

I just added an input box for people to type a small message that is conditional depending on what they chose in the previous field. If they choose "Other" in the previous radio button element, then the little input text box will show up. All well and good, and the box was located "after" the radio box it is conditional on (not sure if it was put there default or if it was put before it and moved? might be the culprit, but should still adjust).

Anyways, it's placed after the radio box, but in the results email it shows up before the radio box which looks goofy as if it were some stray question answered.

I'll try removing it and replacing it by making sure it goes directly after that radio element when it's first placed, and not moved and see if that helps, but either way it should automatically adjust according to it's position in the form at the end (in other words if it's been moved), not it's original placement position. :)

**EDIT**
I've removed the input text box, clicked the radio element that it will be dependent on, inserted a new input text box so that it shows up right away in the correct location. Same results, it shows up before the field it's dependent on in the email results. Defintely not in the right order :/

Any chance of adding calculations
Something simple like when creating an order form
allow for 2 input fields eg qty and price and ability to multiply these and place in a field called item value.
Then option to to have a running total on item value to give total order value.
Have seen some work arounds for this but would be great if this could be automated
thanks
