Formidable Forms is a popular WordPress form builder plugin that allows users to create a wide variety of forms with ease. I am using Formidable as a calculator builder, and it has been excellent. However, there isn’t really a lot of knowledge to build advance forms so you have to know those math formulas, and I had an issue when I moved the site to a new domain. It changed all my form embed ids and some calculation fields in my forms, that was most annoying. But for computation it works great.
Here’s a review based on its features and reputation up to that point:
- Drag-and-Drop Builder: Formidable Forms offers an intuitive drag-and-drop form builder, making it easy for users to create complex forms without the need for coding skills. This feature is particularly beneficial for both beginners and experienced users.
- Form Templates: The plugin provides a range of pre-built form templates that users can customize for various purposes, including contact forms, surveys, registration forms, and more. This can save time and effort in form creation.
- Conditional Logic: Formidable Forms supports conditional logic, allowing users to show or hide form fields based on user input. This feature enables the creation of dynamic and personalized forms tailored to individual responses.
- Advanced Calculations: Users can perform advanced calculations using form entries, making it useful for applications such as price estimation, order forms, or any scenario that requires dynamic calculations based on user inputs.
- Integration with Third-Party Services: Formidable Forms integrates with a variety of third-party services and tools, including email marketing services, CRMs, payment gateways, and more. This enhances the functionality of forms and enables seamless data transfer.
- Multi-Page Forms: The plugin supports multi-page forms, enabling users to create more user-friendly and organized forms without overwhelming visitors with a single long page.
