The form builder now allows the modification of input fields and web form details. Click on the icon to edit a form or field.
At FormSmarts, we are pleased to let you use our web form platform absolutely free. However, whenever we have to help you in person, we ask you to spend a few minutes writing a review on one the following websites, before we take some of our time to help you.
About Writing Reviews
We ask you to write reviews that are useful to readers, not spam. If you’re using FormSmarts, there must be reasons: talking about features you like about FormSmarts is probably a good start.
Contact Us When Done
Once you’re done, contact us.

We’ve added a feature suggestion form. You can vote for features requested by others and suggest new ones. Now is the time to have your say.
In average, we release a new version of FormSmarts form builder or form processing engine weekly.
We are pleased to announce that FormSmarts now supports the full range of HTML form input fields. Users can now update their web forms and create new ones using Drop Down Lists, Radio Buttons, and Checkboxes.
We are in the process of updating relevant documentation on the site.
Update: see how to choose the correct form input field.
FormSmarts users can now display their own logo in the top left corner of their forms.
Note that because each logo must be reviewed manually, we ask you to spend a few minutes to help us publicize FormSmarts before we take some of our time to validate your logo. Alternatively, you may get your logo validated for a small fee of US$ 5 per logo submitted. You may help us by:
- writing reviews about us on relevant sites and blogs (e.g. Scripts.com, HotScripts)
- posting a video on YouTube showing how to use FormSmarts (gets you free validation of all of your logos)
Once done, ask us to validate your logo.
We often get questions asking whether FormSmarts web forms are protected against automated submissions by a CAPTCHA. A CAPTCHA is a challenge-response test used to determine whether the user is human.
Yes, we do use CAPTCHA tests, but not every time a form is submitted. Instead, the form handler decides each time whether or not to require a CAPTCHA test (and other verifications), based on unobtrusive analysis by our form spam blocker of the information submitted.
This saves time to every one, and reduces form abandonment.
Asking the user to complete a CAPTCHA test for every form submission affects form usability and accessibility.
Here are some of the major features we’ll be adding to FormSmarts
Verified Form Owner
Web form users are often concerned about what the form results recipient is going to do with their personal information. As a first step in a series of efforts to help increase user confidence and trust, we’ll introduce a Verified Form Owner scheme.
When the feature becomes available, you’ll have the option to verify your domain name, personal name, or company name. That name will then be used as the form owner name, and will appear in a prominent place at the top of each form. Indications that the form owner has been verified will also be shown.
At the most basic level, verifying your domain name will only take a few minutes.
Customizable Form Appearance
We’ll be offering the ability to change the FormSmarts logo on your forms by your own logo.
More Field Types Supported
We’ll add support form more HTML form field types, like drop down menus (HTML select tag), in the first quarter of 2008.
Send a feature request.
If you have forgotten you password, you may now change it without contacting FormSmarts Support.
Most visitors will notice that they are submitting a form not from your website, but from FormSmarts.com. For users to be confident they are sending information to the right person, include your name or website name in the form title.
For example, “Contact Edgar Poe” is a more informative and useful title than “Contact Form”.
