Screendoor Updates

The latest features, changes, and refinements to Screendoor.

We've removed the messages page

The navbar, without the Messages page.

You might have noticed that we’ve removed Screendoor’s Messages page from the navigation bar in all of your projects.

If you’ve come to rely on that page, don’t worry: Screendoor still lets you do everything the old Messages page let you accomplish, and more.

  • Want to check whether you’ve sent a message to a certain respondent? Easy: when you view that response in Screendoor, you can read every message you’ve sent them in the “Activity” section.

  • If you want to know how many respondents have received one of your message presets, our “Messages” advanced search filter lets you do just that.

  • Bonus: if you added a confirmation email to your project after receiving some submissions, a new “Confirmation email” search filter can tell you who hasn’t yet received it.

  • If you’re looking to edit your message presets, or create a new one, check out the Settings page.

    The new message presets page.

Delay submissions until your project launches

Delaying submissions.

Want to advertise your project before you’re ready to accept submissions? Now you can! When setting up your project page, just press the “Delay submissions” button and enter your project’s launch date.

Once you’re ready to share your project with the world, we’ll publish your project page but keep your form closed until the chosen date.

Sort long multiple choice fields alphabetically

The old way of sorting options alphabetically.

Let’s say your form has a giant dropdown with 50 options, and you keep them sorted alphabetically. Then your boss tells you to add a 51st option that starts with N. Until now, this was super annoying: after adding the option, you had to manually scroll up to reorder it.

The new "Sort A-Z" button for long multiple choice fields.

No more! If your multiple choice field has more than 15 options, just click the “Sort A-Z” link to reorder them automatically. Handy!

Automatically share responses with colleagues not on Screendoor

Adding a "Send a copy" shortcut action.

We’ve added a shortcut action that automatically emails a PDF or plain text copy of a response to any address.

Our PDF exports now look a bit nicer

Our redesigned PDFs.

When you export a PDF of a response, it now looks a bit more professional.

In particular, if you’ve uploaded a logo for your organization, it’s now at the very top of the page.
