Now that you’ve created your form or workflow, what are the various things you can do when it is submitted? With frevvo, there are many many flexible options. You can simply view your submissions online or send them to your own web server for processing or use the frevvo API to perform detailed post-processing of submission data. We’ve documented this in this new Tutorial on processing form data.
We’ll keep updating this as required but if you want to see all the options available to you, check it out.
Customers have long inquired about the ability to create Confluence pages from frevvo forms for structured content. For example, a Client dashboard or Customer support application in Confluence.
Let’s say you want to create a Client dashboard with a Confluence page for each client. Either clients themselves or internal employees can easily create/update their information using the wiki editor. The problem is that it’s hard to keep the pages consistent since the wiki editor lets people create free-format pages. That’s where frevvo comes in.
Instead of creating/updating these pages via the wiki editor, clients and employees are presented with a form. The form enforces structure, business rules, validation etc. When the form is submitted, frevvo will generate a Confluence page for the client; the page can be named using data from the form (e.g. client name). frevvo can also generate an Edit link on the page. When clicked, it takes you back to the form pre-filled with the client data. You can edit the data and submit. frevvo will then update the client page with the updated data.
It’s really quite easy to do. You can see for yourself in the 4 min video below:
It’s been an unbelievable time – obviously, we haven’t updated the blog at all recently. We’re really excited about our new product for Atlassian Confluence. We’ve been working with quite a few customers who have now successfully used frevvo within Confluence for things like:
- Issue tracking systems
- Event registration (download submissions to MS Excel)
- Patient referral
- Student enrollment
and many other applications.
The new version has full user/group integration with Confluence, works with your Active Directory/LDAP systems, includes workflows, digital signatures, task lists in Confluence, the ability to create/update Confluence pages from forms & workflows, the ability to collect multiple submissions in a single Confluence page etc.
I’ll be writing more about these over the next several weeks.
