Awesome Forms

Our Awesome Forms feature allows the App Admin to create various types of forms from. Forms that can be created include simple Contact Us forms, to more complicated forms such as Mortgage Calculators, Grade Conversions, Inventory Managers, and more!  

The data from the forms is easily searchable, sortable, and editable directly in the app. App Members can access and edit their data only. The App Admin can see combined or individual data sets from App Members. App Admins also have additional options such as exporting the data, and receiving the data via email.

Using Awesome Forms With CRM (Data Manager)

Instead of simply emailing your form results to yourself, you can use our CRM Data Manager to easily manage the various sets of data submitted via the Forms in your app. In addition, you can select the methods in which you want the data linked, and you can filter the information as you see fit. Below are two very simple use-case examples.

Use Case Example 01

An example of how you can use our Awesome Forms and CRM features would be creating a Form for Products, Customers, and Orders. Each Form can be used to capture information from the various data sets. Via our CRM, you can link the various sets of data so that you will easily be able to see the Products that your Customers are ordering.

Use Case Example 02

Another example would be a basketball league using our Awesome Forms and CRM features to capture and manage statistics for their Teams, Players, and Games. The league can link the Players with a Team, and the Game Statistics with each respective Player. We’ll further explain below…

CRM / Form Settings 

ADD RELATION – The Add Relation feature is used to combine data sets from your various Forms using our CRM feature. Think of a Relation as the common field between two different sets of data.

For example, if you have data sets of Teams and Players. The common field between the two sets of records could be

Player Name. This field would be used in both sets of records.

You would then create a Relation using the Player Name field.

Important Note: Only the Drop-Down field type can be used to link to an existing Form. So if you want to link 2 Forms together, make the Field in the secondary Form a Drop-Down field type.

1) Choose Field– When adding a Relation, first select the Field that you want linked. For example, if you’re currently editing the Players Form, you would select the Player Name Field.

2) Choose Awesome Form – Next, select the Form that contains the Field that you’re linking. For example, in the “Teams” Form, you would also have a Player Name Field (because you would have to enter a Player’s Name to assign the Player to a Team).

3) Choose Field – As explained in Step 2, this is where you select the Field Name that’s in the primary Form that will be linked to the Field in the current Form. In our example, it would be Player Name.

4) Condition – Use this option if you want to limit options available when making a selection. For example, in your Players Form, you may have an Field called Completed Requirements with the options Yes/No for all of your players.

If the Completed Requirements is “No” for a Player, you may not want the Player to be assigned to a Team. Using the Condition feature, you would enter Completed Requirements=Yes (be sure to not include spaces before or after the =). Consequently, when assigning Players to Teams, any Player with a status of “No” will not be listed and couldn’t be assigned to a Team.
