Introducing Forms, an essential YOOtheme Pro addon

We are proud to introduce our most ambitious and one of the most expected YOOtheme Pro features, the Forms addon. It will change the way you work and think about web forms in YOOtheme Pro, and lets you create beautiful submission workflows - all magnificently integrated into the page builder.

Every Section or Column enabled as a Form Area becomes the playground for the most imaginative form designs. Powered by the page builder layout system, elements, and form elements will allow you to design the exact form you were aiming to.

The Actions

Every Form Area has its workflow determined by the After Submit Actions. Send an email with the submitted data, send a Thank You email with an attached file, save the submission to a CSV file, redirect the user to a different page, or do it all together. Actions are the most simple yet powerful way to give your forms a breath of life.

After Submit Actions

The Elements

More than 10 form field Elements ready to compose the perfect form, use a simple input or a more complex composition, and allow your user to submit their data most efficiently. Furthermore, a Hidden element will allow static or Dynamic Content to be submitted and gather that extra information you might need. And if you are keen to it you can always group the fields under a fieldset element.

The Validation

The client-based HTML5 and the ajaxed server-side validation will assure your submissions are in the exact expected format. Each element is validated through a customizable set of rules, and to assert its an actual human behind a submission the ReCaptcha element will stop their bits to any naughty bot.

What to Expect

We have been working on Forms for some time now and we are confident about its efficiency, but it has yet to be fully tested on more diverse contexts. As such we have released Essentials 1.1.0 as beta and in the following weeks, we are going to work on reaching the stable version. The documentation has been accordingly updated and you can rely on it for the update, first steps, and details.

We already have in plan to add more actions and features, but your feedback is valuable and we want to hear from you, so please let us know all about!

What are you waiting for? Go and give it a try!

This has the potential to be dope. Database saving is a must though for the future needs. RSForm is a great benchmark.

I fully agree, but for now you can use this plugin to display the CSV on the front-end publicly or for logged-in users: https://github.com/mostafa272/TableMakerforCSV/wiki/Documentation

Thanks! The field element reCaptcha does a good job, supporting Google reCaptcha v2 and v3.

Great job - thanks. Would be great, if I can choose to use the name of a field above or inside the field.

Thats would be a good element. We need some calendar/time element, with some restrictions e.g. not before, only pic on time between 09.00-23.00 (Calendarformat 24 h ). Than a Fieluplaod .
