Auto Reply when Contact Form is filled out

When somebody fills out their information it would be helpful if there was an automatic reply to their email. That way an automatic message can let them know your hours, when they can expect to hear from you etc etc...

Automatically add submissions to a web page

For all of us supporting form entry (text box entries, radio button choices, etc), it would be great if when they're submitted the entry could be automatically added to a list somewhere on the page.

 

For example, my site has lots of trip signup forms, where users enter their name and email.  Whenever we get a signup, I'd like the name automatically updated to a list on the page so all users can see who's signup up for the trip.

Weebly Contact Forms Should Integrate with External Autoresponders (Infusionsoft, Mailchimp, Aweber

Status: New Idea

What's the use of letting me build forms on weebly if I can only send that data to your own in-house autoresponder platform? This is the 21st century guys, online businesses use multiple platforms to get things done! It's a real disadvantage to me that I cannot use your weebly form design and integrate with my existing list and database. Please add integration functions for major 3rd party autoresponders.

 

Thank you.

Customizable welcome letter upon registration

I'd like new members to receive an automated welcome message that is customizable for my site. It seems like this should be an included feature for business accounts since we are paying quite a bit for the feature to have membership access only. Once members receive approved site access, an automated welcome letter is necessary. I need it to include details such as what members can post, what the terms of use are, etc.

PRINTED FORMS STYLED AND ATTRACTIVE

Status: New Idea

Dividers and Section Titles do not print out at all. 

The form output is unorganized and unattractive.

WORST: Check boxes result in a number. The recipient must then compare the form to the website form online, to manually count the options and and figure out which selection was made.  Radio buttons are a possible workaround but a) not if you want more than one selection and b) you still see a number corresponding chronologically to the selection. Why? This is terrible.

 

The forms should appear organized and suitable for printing, filing and referring to in the future, bringing along in hardcopy to an interview, forwarding to others. Lets make the printed form look similar to the online version!

At the very least, lets print dividers and section headers, and print out the text for the checkbox selections.

Email on contact forms

Status: New Idea
by DrSeifert on ‎02-16-2017 08:31 AM - last edited on ‎02-16-2017 10:56 AM by Community Manager

I am looking for a way to add a feature to a contact form that allows the sender of the information to be copied to his own email address.
Also,  there should be a way to allow other email addresses - to be added by the sender - to be copied as well.

RSVP forms should not accept submissions after specified date

If what is stated in the title is too difficult to implement, there should be any option (like in Google Forms) to turn off the form manually.

Enable us to block the emails of SPAMMERS

Speaking personally - but I suspect I'm not alone on this matter - we need a way of blocking emails used to generate form responses from SPAMMERS!


I can't block an email using gmail because all it does is block emails from no-reply@weebly.com which is attached to all the email addresses used by form respondents.

 

What I'd like to see is a way of blocking email addresses who are spamming (almost invariably selling website services!) from within Weebly.

Integrate Weebly Contact Forms with Google Sheets

It would be great if data entered on contact forms could automatically sync with a google sheet. So there is no need to manually download form data and import into sheets, but the data which a customer enters into my contact form would automatically sync into a google sheet spreadsheet. 

Omitting non-selected option in drop-down menu in the email generated.

A drop down menu to allow customer/visitor to select the option they want to submit, while leaving the non-desired options untouched/blank. Would be helpful to have the "non-desired" options omitted from the email sent to me.

Date and Time on Form Entries

As I understand it, all times shown on notification forms are based on US Pacific time.  I would like to suggest that web site operators be able to set the time zone for their forms.  For example, I would like all my times and dates to be listed in US Eastern time.  I use "first come, first served" requirements a lot and it would make it simpler if they were all based on my local time.

captcha system

It would be nice to have a captcha system, in which a bot could not send you forms. It usually comes up as a picture of a number or something similar, I'm sure we have all ran across this filling out online forms. Which brings up the fact that it makes your site seem more professional.

 

Opt-in forms

Status: New Idea
by doctormolly on ‎03-24-2016 05:11 PM - last edited on ‎03-25-2016 02:49 PM by Community Manager

You have opt-in forms but they are very basic, and as with the inability to create a text box or background color to a text box, it has no background so it looks very average. You do have landing page abilities, but they are a little clunky and restrict design. I prefer your forms, but they don't look good. We should have form type options and then the ability to change colors or pick a color format.

The more you can provide options like these, rather than having to search your apps, the more people will know the Weebly brand, rather than some app builders brand. The process of having to go find an app to do these things, like privy.com, detracts from your brand.

Capcha protected forms

Hi, I noticed one my web forms is being spammed regularly. I belive it would be important for Weebly to come up with a Capcha reader on all Weebly forms your users are creating in order to maintain a high level of security for all your users and clients.

When people fill out our contactform and send it, it gets send to our gmail account.

The name of the sender however is always "noreply" so our inbox is full of "noreply, me" emails.

People do fill out their email address on the form and we can reply to them via the email itself.

Simple Button

Status: New Idea
by TASAS 2 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago by Community Manager

Why don't we have a feature where it is just a simple button, it would send an alert to an email address or add to a public count. You would have to be able to trace someone once they have pressed the button so that there are no spamming threats though.

 

This feature would allow you and everyone else visiting the page to see how many people have visited and interacted with the website. This is particually good for a website like the one i made (raising awareness for something).

Character Limit for Contact Forms

Status: New Idea
by SaritKatz 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

A character limit for contact forms would be helpful, especially if there is no other feature allowing users to input information. This feature might be particularly useful to creators whose websites focus on user input/messages.

Form (Conditional Inputs)

Status: New Idea
by Shvan 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

As I know, the tools of form makings of weebly are very limited and can't be used to give a good look and functioning on the website. I tried most of the third party forms but they were either not responsive with the site contents, or they were also having a limited functionality.

 

What I suggest for weebly to work on is making the forms smarter, by giving conditional functions like; (if, or,...)

e.g., Showing one type of form contents when an option is previously chosen in a specific form by the "options button" and the "drop down box" and showing another type of contents when another option is chosen.

And, giving error when someone is trying to input another text other than what is required by the text fields. like specifying only a limited number for a number field, and recognizing the email@website.com for the email fields, and also, limited letters could be entered in a text field.

And I also suggest that weebly would provide another button for choosing a quantity number. by having the tools of increasing/decreasing the number with the upward and downward arrow.

 

And if possible, "multi-page forms" is a great way to create forms. like; putting fields of the same category of data and information on one page of the form, and when the user finishes with inputting in that page, it could directly switch to another page with a different field category.

 

I would kindly ask others to vote for my idea to let weebly be the number one tool for website creation.

 

Thanks.

Forms by Columns - Formularios en Columnas

Status: New Idea
by Nika on ‎02-02-2017 03:27 PM - last edited on ‎02-05-2017 09:18 AM by Community Manager

In my web page I have some forms, three of them I assigned for quotations. Since I have many options,  I use the checkbox tool which allows to select more than one option; deploying it by rows generates a huge scroll. It would be great if we had the two options to build the Checkbox, by columns or rows. Here’s how it looks by columns:

Tengo varios formularios en mi pagina web, 3 de los cuales los construi para poder realizar cotizaciones. Tengo muchas opciones de un mismo tema, por lo que necesitaba utilizar la herramienta casillas de verificación, que es la que permite seleccionar mas de una opción. Esta herramienta al agregar opciones se despliega hacia abajo generando mucho scroll. Sería de gran ayuda que tuvieramos la opción de elegir si queremos que esta herramienta se acomode por columnas o por filas. Les dejo un ejemplo
