Retirement of the Legacy Form Designer

We've now retired the legacy form designer and replaced it with the new form designer. This will now be the default designer that launches when either you edit or create a new form.

WorkMobile Form Designer with Barcode Properties selected

As well as a more modern appearance, the form designer offers some of the following improvements:-

  • Speed improvements when dealing with large forms containing lots of controls.

  • Improved feedback for error messages.

  • Improved UI for advanced controls, such as image and data-link-dropdown controls.

  • Visual indicators to show the user which controls have associated formulas.

  • Ability to copy and paste controls

Note : For users still wishing to use the old form designer, you can still access this using the Legacy Form Designer button on the forms dashboard.

Expression Builder

The expression builder is a brand new feature within the new form designer that provides users with a much simpler method of building expressions. Learn more

Expression Builder with Arithmetic Functions and SQRT (number) selected

Searchable Fields

To improve the performance of searching for data when reviewing completed records, we've introduced the concept of Searchable Fields. Form builders can now choose which fields on the form should be included in the search filters for completed records. This in turn creates indexes in the underlying databases in order to improve search performance. Learn more

Multiple Document Uploads for the Document Library

We've extended the document library to now allow users to upload multiple documents in batch. Learn more
