Formulator.NET Form Builder Features

Formulator.NET forms are highly customizable. The key features are listed below:


  • Create either single page or multipage forms.
  • Organize questions in sections.
  • Add Page Instructions and context-sensitive help to further explain questions.
  • Use a Wizard to create complete forms within minutes.
  • Add any of the following input controls: Textbox, Single or multiselect input fields, Date input (popup), Email input, Web address input, file upload, Auto-assign reference numbers, multiline textareas, and WYSIWYG Editors.
  • Populate options for checkboxlists, radiobuttonlists, dropdownlists and listboxes from existing database tables.
  • Upload options from a CSV file to quickly add them to option groups used for option controls (checkboxlists, radiobuttonlists, dropdownlists and listboxes).
  • Set conditions on pages, sections, questions, or responses inputs. (E.g., Make a certain question visible only if "yes" is selected in a previous question.)
  • Send an autoresponse to form submitters when the form is submitted. (Optionally include their responses in the email so that they can keep a record of how they responded.)
  • Customize the look and feel of the form by creating templates. (Upload HTML or use the WYSIWYG editor provided.)
  • Each form has its own URL. Form builders create their own intuitive name for the forms (for Search engine optimization).
  • Create status groups that are suitable to the form. For example, appropriate statuses for the Ticket System are: Opened, In Progress, On Hold, and Closed.
  • Notify the default user or form owner by email when a submission is received.
  • Search submissions based on as little or as much criteria as you wish to specify, including submissions where the submitter answered questions with a specific response.
  • Determine how submission results should appear in the search results grid. (E.g., If the form includes a field for submitters' names, one of the columns in the search results grid may be "Name")
  • In the search results grid view whether or not the Assigned user has read the submission.
  • View the complete history for each submission, which includes notes, status changes, and reassignments.
  • Use responses from the submitter in emails and form submission confirmations. (E.g., If the form includes a field for submitters' names, the autoresponder may be formatted to read, "Dear John,...")
  • A user friendly homepage presents the admin user all the latest submissions in their queues and shows relevant statistics.


  • Group admin users under departments.
  • The predefined System Roles include: Super Admin (with full control and access to all features and ability to manage all departments); Department Admin (with full control and access to all features of their own department); Formulator (ability to create and manage their own forms and form submissions); Task Handler (with the ability to manage submissions within their own department).
  • Further limit the permissions of Task Handlers, as well as include users from other departments, in a form project with Custom Roles. (Each role may have different permissions depending on the submission's current status.)
