Here’s how it works
- Rapidly build a smart electronic form using the Formotus online creator, and supply the form with shareable links to a Google Drive folder and a Sheet.
- Distributed your form via Formotus mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows.
- Your app users collect rich data in the form such as signatures, photos, diagrams, GPS locations, barcodes and more. The form works robustly offline and can include sophisticated business logic.
- When the form is complete the user taps Submit. The user does not need Google credentials and does not even need to know where the data goes.
- Tabular form data arrives in the Google Sheet where it can be reviewed, analyzed, charted, and used to trigger additional actions.
- The Google Sheet also shows links to the original form, one to view it as a PDF and another to open it in the Formotus Now app for further editing and re-submission.
