EFBE — The Easiest Form Builder Ever


Sometimes you need to collect information — fast. Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of options for doing just that, but none of them were quick or easy enough for us. So we made The Easiest Form Builder Ever, and it does what it says on the tin.


Creating a Form

Creating a form with EFBE is extremely simple — if you can type, you can do it. First, give your form a name. Then, in the textbox below that, describe your form, one line at a time. So if you’re collecting a first name, last name, and age, your edit screen will look something like this:

Create Form

To the right, you’ll see an automatically updated preview of your form. It’s handy because you can see exactly what your form will look like, as you work on it. With the current example, it should look something like this:

Form Preview

When your form looks just right, click the Save Form button. EFBE will spit out a link to your completed form. Email it, tweet it, post it to your LiveJournal — how you spread it is up to you. But when people click it, they can fill your form out and you can start collecting information. It’s that easy.

Checking the Results

Checking the results is a breeze too. Simply bookmark the page EFBE sends you to after you click the Save Form button. When you hit that page, you’ll see the current results of your form. If you notice something you’d like to change, you can edit your form too.

An Arc90 Lab Project

The Easiest Form Builder Ever is the sixth of a handful of projects to come out of the Arc90 2012 Hackathon. The Hackathon gives us time to make the smart but simple tools we crave. If you’d like to learn more about how Arc90 can help your business, get in touch!
