Formstack is an online form building solution. Its drag-and-drop web form creator gives digital marketers a tool for online data collection and engagement. Users can collect payments and pass form data to popular marketing apps through third-party integrations. With Formstack, users can capture responses, store the information and share it with their teams. Easily Build Complicated FormsWe use Formstack in all 6 schools and at all levels of Administration. We use it for simple tasks like surveys and minor purchases, to complex forms like a 20-course, logic based summer program. We integrate with Google Drive, and a few other components. Its helped us move off of paper, reduce the need to collect cash, and automate many processes. We use it to build Help Desk tickets, and trigger workflows. We have nearly 300 forms, with approximately half of those active at any given time.,Conditional Logic: Formstack beats most form editors when it comes to "if, this, then let that happen" Integrations: Formstack integrates with a ton of third party applications, and if Formstack doesn't directly, then its Zapier integration probably does Embed: while its not the prettiest form output, it does embed nearly anywhere,Buggy Updates: Formstack tends to make on-the-fly updates that break features. We run into this about once a year Appearance: the forms are starting to look dated compared to some of the competitors (looking at you, Typeform) Dynamic Data: passing data from one field to another is not-exactly doable Paid Add-Ons: the price for Formstack is already an arm and a leg; the fact that they have additional monthly paid add-ons is frustrating User Limits: user accounts barely do anything outside of 'view/edit' permissions, thus the low volume allocated seems a bit greedy at $10/user/mo for more,6, Google Drive Web Help Desk Zapier,9,For us Formstack is about efficiency and the user experience. We've practically stopped collecting cash, which was a big ask for the hundreds of families that felt like we were constantly asking for money. Instead, they can pay with a form, quickly and securely online. We're working on becoming PCI compliant, but Formstack is not natively compliant and frustratingly only supports Stripe for guaranteed PCI compliance.,Employee Surveys Customer Surveys Research Studies,8,Yes,Collin is an amazing upper-tier agent and will on occasion send your support request straight to the development team; or atleast give you an inside look at what's going on. I like him because, A) he's been there for a long time and knows what he's talking about, and B) doesn't let me feel like my tickets in a black hole.Formstack is a Game ChangerFormstack is used across our entire institution. Its uses vary from event registration to lead generation, data collection, applications and more. Departments who get the most use of Formstack are marketing/communications, alumni relations, fundraising, admissions, and human resources. As a preK-12 school, Formstack has saved countless hours for several employees as we have eliminated many paper forms. The convenience of being able to submit a form quickly at any time of day is also a great benefit to our users.,Easy drag and drop form-builder Share links that allow anyone without a login to view the data in real-time Customizable notification and confirmation emails,More visual reporting in the submissions Would like an easy way to batch send pre-filled forms (name, email, etc.),10,Google Sheets Paypal Pro Constant Contact,9,Customer Surveys,9,No

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.

Formstack has awesome support! They are always quick to respond and genuinely care for their clients' success. They will work with you to find a solution or let developers know about your feature request. There are a few things on the feature request forum that I wish they would implement sooner, but I am at least grateful that they give clients a space to voice their ideas and take them into consideration.
