Goodbye, FormsCentral. Hello, Screendoor.
Adobe will retire FormsCentral in late July. If your agency or government has relied on FormsCentral to build and publish web forms and fillable PDF forms, what should you do?
Give your citizens a break
Filling out a form is a tedious yet necessary task, one from which few are exempt. The easier it is for your citizens to fill out a form, the quicker they can get on with their day.
Screendoor saves everyone time with the following features:
Autosave. When you fill out a PDF form in a browser, it’s easy to delete all of the data you’ve entered by accidentally closing the browser or navigating to another website. Screendoor saves form inputs automatically, so data is never lost.
Multi-device functionality. Many people don’t have regular access to a desktop or laptop computer. We want your form to reach as many of your citizens as possible, so we made sure our responsive forms can be completed on any device.
Skip logic. As with FormsCentral, you can declutter your forms in Screendoor with conditional field rules. With rules in place, users see no more than the fields they need to complete.
Signatures. Need to collect signatures? Set up your form to accept electronic signatures.
Payments, too. Receive credit card payments via our integration with Stripe.
Process forms more efficiently
Just as FormsCentral did, Screendoor lets you filter and sort responses to view your data however you like. Beyond that, you can identify a subset of responses with advanced search and add labels and statuses to responses to better manage them.
It’s likely you aren’t the only one handling responses. Group colleagues into project teams and assign them responses for review.
If you need to move your data at any time, you can export responses as a CSV, Excel, or PDF file.
Make the switch
It’s time to leave fillable PDF forms behind. Switch to Screendoor’s easy-to-use web forms to increase response rates and lower processing time.
Ready to get started? Send a PDF form to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will covert it to a form in Screendoor, free of charge!
