Description

Creating and maintaining web forms can be a headache. Not only do you need to create the mark-up (and sometimes scripting too), but you also have to consider who gets notified when someone fills out the form. Not to mention where and how the submissions are stored.  

TERMINALFOUR makes this easy with two features:

Form Builder

Form Builder is a WYSIWYG form creation tool that lets you build advanced forms without HTML or scripting. As well as the standard form elements you can add:

  • dependencies – if you want to add conditions to your form elements so a text box is displayed when a particular checkbox has been selected, you can
  • email notifications – send a copy of each submission, including uploaded files, TERMINALFOUR Users or Groups. Want to send the mail to a non-TERMINALFOUR User? Just add an email address
  • reCAPTCHA – want your forms bot-free? You can add Google reCAPTCHA functionality to keep your form submissions human only
  • Payment gateway – use Stripe as a payment gateway so you can process credit cards
  • customization – with Form Builder you can add classes and IDs to your form elements so you can add your own styling and scripts
  • easy to publish – there are three ways to publish forms – T4 Tag, iFrame embed or, if you don't want to add it to a page you can just post a direct link to the form

Form Bank

Form Bank is a cloud-based server that securely stores your form definitions and submissions 

  • encryption – all form definitions and submissions are encrypted in transit and at rest so you can be sure they are secure
  • multi-region – Form Bank servers are located in Australia, Canada, the EU so depending on your data retention policy, you can be confident you know where it's stored
