FormAssembly
FormAssembly is an excellent tool for creating personalized web forms that integrate with Salesforce. It is a very powerful tool and although it is user-friendly, there is a learning curve. It would be less suited for very simple forms that do not integrate with other systems, as there are probably simpler tools available for that purpose.

If you have many hours to spend on the phone or chat with customer service and want to save $100, ProProfs is your platform. For those with limited time to invest, it's worth spending a bit more to get quality service and functionality without a hassle.

Pros
FormAssembly
  • SalesForce integration is really nice. You can map to specific fields with form values, or you can use detailed formulas. You can also choose to bypass assignment rules on a per-form basis, and create customized logic for when cases are created, when leads are created/merged, etc. It's very robust.
  • Form creation in general is very simple. They've gotten good over the years of creating an intuitive, drag and drop interface that's quick to edit. I like that you can also assign values to fields so conditional form building gets easy.
  • I like that you can customize how responses are viewed in the response window. Choose what columns show up so you can find records with ease, and with just one glance. OR you can download everything to excel in a snap too.

Cons
FormAssembly
  • It may not be Salesforce Lightning Experience compatible - at least for us - in terms of linking to Lightning Experience Notes
  • Saving a form edit can be confusing depending on where in the form the edit is made
  • It would be nice to add a background image so that the desktop browser doesn't have so much white-space around the form.

  • [I feel] Customer service closes tickets without resolving the issues first....and there are a lot of issues.
  • I paid for the upgraded version, but couldn't get the upgraded functionality without spending days on the phone, chat, and remote desktop with customer service.
  • We paid for 500 responses/month, but the survey closed before we reached that number. We asked for a refund so we could pay for another month of advertising, but they ignored the request, instead giving us more days to use the platform (not sure how this was supposed to help).
  • Every time you view the Welcome Page, the changes to font and formatting revert back to default and you must re-do them every time.
  • The reports aren't what you expect. They are very limited. I expected Q1- 75% answered Yes, 25% No. Instead the reports are listed across columns in an Excel spreadsheet with every respondent's answer in the rows below. The stats are a bit better, but I don't think you can share them with others.
  • Very limited functionality in the free or 1st upgrade. You need to go to premium and get on the phone with customer service to get basic functions that appear in Survey Monkey. {I think] their advertising is misleading.

One major point for us is our migration to a completely Microsoft infrastructure. IN addition to that, the afore mentioned need to ingest external data resources means that we do have our eyes open toward the landscape so that we can fill these needs. This in no way indicates a move away from FormAssembly: their support is first rate, and so far the product has always stood up to the tests we've put it through.

They shouldn't have opened for public use before they figured out their tech glitches, functionality, how to report, billing issues, and customer service. [I feel] it's poorly run and creates hassle, negative ROI, and frustration for organizations using the platform. Unfortunately, needing to call or email ProProfs every week to get the platform to work is not a good service model.

FormAssembly
While it's not a true development package and misses some features like ingestion of external data for lists, etc... the product is fast, stable, easy to use, and will suit the needs of anyone needing online form functionality with SalesForce and other connectors available for your marketing needs.

ProProfs
The customer service is not well trained on the issues I've needed to call about. There doesn't seem to be good interaction cross-department at ProProfs and every time I talk to someone new, I have to re-explain the situation or they blame the situation on another department. They don't get quick results for the client.

Alternatives Considered
FormAssembly
When we were researching options 2 years ago, FormAssembly beat other form tools hands down based on Salesforce integration features. The ability to declaratively set up prefill and post-submission data connectors supporting complex hierarchical data relationships was huge there. We also valued the ability to authenticate Salesforce users on the form. This allowed us to ensure that only authorized individuals could make updates to their records (and not other people's records) via the form. Since we embed it so heavily into Salesforce, we often compare FormAssembly to Salesforce's native Visualforce and Lightning Component frameworks when deciding how to fulfill a data capture requirement. Unless something very custom is called for, we very often choose FormAssembly first for the flexibility it gives us to build and iterate in the early phases of a new program.

ProProfs feel like a garage start-up that didn't really figure out the functionality or customer service before they launched, while Survey Monkey is reputable and reliable. ProProfs has very limited reporting, but Survey Monkey is exactly what you expect with the basic package- analyzing percentages of each response. Survey Monkey is more customizable, even if you have to pay a bit more.

Return on Investment
FormAssembly
  • FormAssembly allows staff to gather better data and not have to do so much manual entry. This allows staff to focus their energies on other mission critical items.
  • FormAssembly helps to improve data quality by reducing duplicates and enforcing data quality.

ProProfs
  • Negative ROI based on extra money spent on upgrading, losing days with the survey not being upgraded on time, losing money on external advertising when the survey closed early, and losing many work hours reaching out to customer service.
