    Formstack Forms

    Formstack makes it easy to create a variety of forms. I have used it for event interest and registrations, email list sign-ups, and surveys. I have found it easy to customize, and easy to export data for import into other systems (e.g., CRM).

    Microsoft Power Automate

    Well Suited - Collecting data and organizing it.- Eliminate a lot of admin work.- Send auto-response emails to customers/users.- Notify relevant users when the data is updated.- Creating business process flows. Less Appropriate - If creating a flow to create a pdf file that combines all the attachments into one pdf file. - Flow will fail sometimes if the flow is too long and complex and if the flow connections are changed from one user to another.

    Pros

    Formstack Forms

    • Allows for unique situations. As a school, we don't have the luxury of being cookie cutter. Neither do our forms.
    • Support. If we don't know how to do it, their support team has been very helpful and actually attempts to understand the issue on hand.
    • User friendliness. In our field we have a phrase: "what if you get hit by a bus?" With Formstack, you can "get hit by the bus" and someone else can jump in and still keep things running (this is used as a phrase for illness, not termination).
    Patrick Stephens | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power Automate

    • "When an item is changed in a SharePoint list, do ____" - very easy to trigger massive flows of data based upon a one-field change on a SharePoint list.
    • Being able to manually trigger from a Microsoft PowerApp button press to perform actions.
    • Scheduled tasks - once a day, get every record in (LIST) with (Filters) and do (Stuff) to them.

    Cons

    Formstack Forms

    • Setting up our multi-step form took some getting used to. Some of the branching logic configuration wasn't as intuitive as would be ideal.
    • Since we were pushing data directly into Hubspot, I found it cumbersome to deal with data storage limits within Formstack. I would get frequent notices that new responses were not being stored in Formstack and that I needed to upgrade or delete data. I got tired of that.
    • More/easier support for custom fonts would have been a huge plus. We were able to customize the form's appearance, but had to make some concessions in that regard.
    Josh Summerhays | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power Automate

    • I think general training could be improved. I'm sure there are many more uses than the simple automation tasks I was using Power Automate for, but I didn't have the time or bandwidth to dig through Microsoft's documentation on the tool.

    Our user base has come to rely on Formstack to get forms done. The Formstack tools make it easy to start from scratch or copy an existing form to "quick start" a new, similar form. The price is right and frees up IT staff to do more transformative work.

    Usability

    I give it this rating because Ali feel like just about anyone can use this. Now with 7 billion people in the work I understand that’s not the case but I feel like Formstack get it pretty simple where a majority of humans could use it and navigate through. The only reason I didn’t give it a higher rating is because I think Google Forms is a little easier to use and that it’s pretty much impossible for any product to get a 10 on usability in my opinion.

    For most tasks WinAutomation is great and easy to use. You just set up tasks on a step by step basis and you can even tell the program what to do when there is an error (such as continue with job). Sometimes with complicated web extraction jobs it would be good to be able to easily extract data from the web page source.

    The agents in the original group, especially the ones in cahoots with the developers, are really solid and know what they're talking about--I'm looking at you, Collin. The 'Tier 1' support agents that typically reply to the tickets are really spotty. If you have an overly technical question, i.e. bugfix, or describe a feature from a few years back that randomly disappeared, these agents typically will give you what feels like a generic reply and not know what you're talking about.

    So Microsoft Flow support for its general troubleshooting or correcting issues is excellent. But to my knowledge, Microsoft Flow itself does not have service providers, even though they offer templates on their online app. I have found myself many times trying to complete individual actions that have no known template or even forum example. Every business is unique, and Microsoft does an excellent job of providing versatile yet straightforward systems. Microsoft Flow is definitely on the more advanced side of things. Having support or being able to purchase superior service (on building personalized flows) would be great.

    We implemented on one of the earlier versions. Through continuous engineering improvements, the interface keeps getting easier and more intuitive. Therefore, later implementations keep getting easier and better.

    Alternatives Considered

    Formstack Forms

    Drupal is a much more customizable platform, however you must have someone build the forms first and then you can work with them if you do not have the programming knowledge. If you have any changes to make, it can sometimes be both a time consuming and difficult process. Formstack is much more efficient if you do not have an in house programmer.

    Microsoft Power Automate

    Microsoft Power Automate is the first flow-based service that I have used, and I loved its convenience. It does take some time to learn and a lot of research. I recommend that you first plan out how you imagine that the flow should work and change things around as you start creating the flows.

    Return on Investment

    Formstack Forms

    • Positive - ability to analyze submission trends - e.g. when a marketing email is sent, looking at increased form viewing and submissions in relation to the sending of the campaign.
    • Immediate response - those that submit forms receive immediate response that their form has been submitted.
    Ryan Spear | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power Automate

    • Power Automate has allowed us to create applications or customer interfaces we would not have been able to if we weren't able to move data around like we can with Power Automate
    • Power Automate helped us connect 3rd party systems that previously had no connection by passing data between different channels. This reduces license counts.
