Formotus overview

What is Formotus?

Formotus is a mobile form app creator and form builder for businesses to create rich mobile form apps for requirements such as quality assurance, inspections and audits, and compliance and safety. The cloud-based system offers tools for building, managing, and deploying forms, and connects with other apps for data integration. The Formotus platform is designed to help businesses of all types to turn their paper forms into enterprise-grade, mobile optimized forms, without the need for coding knowledge.

Users can create custom forms with the Formotus drag and drop form builder which facilitates the creation of forms including conditional logic, custom branding, data connection, photo capture, electronic signature capture, and more. Forms can be made up of custom content as desired and users can input placeholders and guidelines to help users when filling out the form in order to reduce submission errors. Features such as conditional rules and event triggered actions allow businesses to setup forms that progress in certain ways depending on the data input by the participant.

Mobile forms can be integrated with existing data sources including email, SharePoint, Salesforce, Google Sheets, and more, in order to query data to populate forms automatically or sync form data to third party libraries. The Formotus mobile form client apps allow businesses to deploy forms online or via the app, and users can open and complete them from within the app using any mobile device. Formotus can also be integrated with Microsoft InfoPath to migrate forms into the Formotus mobile apps with features for photo capture, annotation, signature capture, geographic maps, location tracking, Zebra printing, barcode scanning, and more.

First class Infopath forms for iOS

Used daily for 2+ years

The Formotus platform allowed us to deploy native SharePoint forms to iPad's, being the only product on the market at the time to offer this compatibility along with the ability to capture data in an offline mode, which was crucial for us. Since the initial launch, the platform has evolved to support most of the controls and business logic available to an InfoPath designer, without sacrificing functionality or restricting the design in any way. Having tried most of the alternatives available today, Formotus is still the only product on the market to offer this without compromise.

Pros
Compatibility with InfoPath controls, conditions and rules is very near 100% Use InfoPath as a design tool then use the Formotus portal to configure and push to iPads is intuitive Support for pre-populated forms (called Workflow Forms) with sync between library and iPad's Support for offline with automatic sync once connected to a network Support for multiple user logons and granular permissions Full support for check out / check in within SharePoint library

Cons
Licencing model can become costly if sharing iPad's between multiple users Support could be more responsive (although the time difference between UK & USA is responsible for the lag) - support once online were always helpful

We had a non-developer create a form that was used in the field for a few years

Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

It served its purpose while we used it. We now have a native app that replaced it. But it's easy to set up forms. Moderate to slightly difficult to handle the data the form generates. End users found it difficult to retain reports they submitted.

Pros
- Easy to create forms with low technical skill necessary - Allowed the transfer of knowledge from InfoPath form creation to iOS "app" - Several different methods for submitting data back to the office from the mobile devices

Cons
- Once a form was submitted, the data was gone to the field staff. We sent forms via email back to a SharePoint list. Users were going through their sent items in their inbox and pulling up the XML to read what they had submitted - Didn't seem like very many new features during the time we used it. But that may be my own unawareness - I was only moderately involved in that project - InfoPath seems to be on its way out, there are a lot of better alternatives now... including Office Forms

Formotus has been an invaluable tool for the organization

Pros
Formotus allows to rapidly deploy field solutions in very little time and with very little issues from the field. The customer support always finds a way to resolve your issues.

Cons
Since we primarily deal with InfoPath it is a shame that MS has discontinued the development of the software. That being said the Formotus team is putting in great effort to establish their own web version of InfoPath as a replacement. Time will tell how it stacks up against MS PowerApps.

More functionality in certain areas compared to similar apps, but limitations in other areas.

Visibility on what our field team is recommending.

Pros
App is easy to use when it comes to searching the recommendation list. You can start typing in a recommendation and all those with those letters will appear--which is much easier than apps our organization has utilized in the past.

Cons
Unfortunately there are some formatting limitations that make our final product look less than desirable. We are working on correcting this, as the final formatted version is what our members see.
