How to process form/workflow data

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 optionsĀ availableĀ to you, check it out.

Reusable controls with the custom palette

With Live Forms, you can create complex reusable controls including sophisticated layouts, validation patterns, business rules etc. Once these controls have been created, you can publish them within the form designer. Other users can search for and find the published controls and re-use them in their own forms without having to re-create the layout, rules etc.

If you think you can use this, check out this 4.5 min video that shows all:

Form layouts using Panels, Sections, Tabs & Repeats

With Live Forms you can create forms with very sophisticated layouts that are similar to your most complex existing forms. The best part is there’s no programming or CSS or JavaScript involved. Just drag and drop.

  • Using Panels, you can easily create multi-column layouts with controls next to each other.
  • Sections allow you to create collapsible groupings of controls and place logically-related controls together.
  • Tabs are a great way to fit large forms into limited real estate.
  • Repeat controls are extremely powerful and can be used to create repeating individual controls (nick name, phone …) or repeating sections (address, incident …). frevvo will manage min and max occurrences automatically and ensure that invalid forms cannot be submitted.

This short (5 min) video introduces you to using these grouping controls for form layout.

There are many other cool things you can do with frevvo forms but that’s for another article and another video.

SaaS frevvo with Confluence

Phew! We’ve finally worked out most of the kinks of using hosted frevvo (SaaS server) with Confluence. It’s cool: just install the plugin, point it at frevvo’s SaaS service and Go!! No need to install or configure. You can use HTTPS for security, create/update/merge to Confluence pages even if your Confluence is safely behind your firewall, and run workflows. You can even setup Confluence with Active Directory authentication and connect it to the SaaS service.

Here is an updated video of the setup (note that it’s still a test server and this is not production-ready):

Using SaaS frevvo with Confluence

Several prospects have asked us about evaluating frevvo Live Forms for Confluence without the hassle of installing a frevvo server. Well, we’re working on making this available in production but a test service is available now.

  1. Sign up for a free account
  2. Activate your account
  3. Download and install the plugin
  4. Configure it to connect to frevvo using the account you just created.

This 3 min video shows you how (strongly recommend you watch in HD 720p):

Collect data on a Confluence page

Our customers use Live Forms for Confluence for surveys, event registrations etc. where the result data is downloaded to MS Excel. But sometimes, people want to do more. They want to format the results as a table and add a graph, display the results in specific ways etc.

Confluence and its rich set of plugins is the ideal platform for this and with frevvo Live Forms you can now easily create forms [and even workflows] and collect submissions on a Confluence page. Then, use arbitrary macros to create tables, charts, Tab views etc.
