Formsort documentation

πŸ‘‹ Welcome! Learn how to start building, shipping, and maintaining forms with Formsort.

What is Formsort?

Formsort is a form builder with the flexibility of code. It's meant teams who don't want to spend weeks waiting for small changes to go live, who want to make big changes that actually change business outcomes, and who want to own their own outcomes.

Where it sits

Formsort is a fully-managed form-building platform.

Your team uses our online studio (a specialized content management system for forms) to create form content, modify styles, and configure integrations.

We host your fully-branded forms, either on one of your subdomains or embedded in a page on your site.

When responders submit answers, we send the answers to your database directly. Formsort doesn't store the responder's answers*.

Formsort forms are production-ready and intended to integrate into your stack allowing you to manage the full lifecycle of a form from prototyping to high traffic registration flows.

*answers will temporarily be stored to ensure delivery of responses for a few weeks

Who it is for

Teams looking to:

  • Build forms with the flexibility of code and simplicity of a form builder

  • Launch and test rapidly on infrastructure that will scale with them

  • Compliantly collect sensitive data

A non-technical product or business owner can ship complex forms without involvement from engineering or design.

Who it is not for

Teams looking to:

  • Create standalone forms for one-off data collection (e.g. surveys, e-signing)

  • Force all changes to forms through engineering teams

  • Store data in non-scalable formats (e.g. PDF or spreadsheets) for the long term instead of a data warehouse

While Formsort can be hooked up to a Google Sheet to store answers data, it's designed to be integrated with a data warehouse.

The company

Formsort is a customer-funded company, with headquarters in New York City, changing how the teams build and manage their most important forms.
