Quick Form Web Part
The "Quick Form" Web Part allows to design a web form which will be submitted by the users to the specified e-mail recipient which provides a way for customers, business partners, and others inside or outside the company to submit questions or request information by filling out fields on a web page and clicking the Submit button.

The following parameters can be configured:
  • Form input controls: Text, Multiline text, Radio buttons, Dropdowns and Checkboxes
  • Mandatory input fields
  • Form Layout and CSS style
  • E-Mail sender/recipient and subject
  • save the submitted form into a Sharepoint List

  3. Configure the following Web Part properties in the Web Part Editor "Miscellaneous" pane section as needed:

    • Form Template:
      Enter the desired form fields (separated by semicolons) as follows:

      Label1=X;Label2=X;..

      where "Label" is the desired field label and X is one of the following field input types:

      • Tnn: Text input field
        where nn is the width (expressed in characters) of the field
        Example: Name=T30

        Preset a text field by appending the preset value separated by a colon.
        Example:  
        Name=T30:Fred

        Preset a text field with a user profile property by appending the preset value separated by a colon and enclosed in curly braces.
        Examples:  
        Name=T30:{firstname}
        Name=T30
        :{lastname}
        E-Mail=T30:{usermail}
        Phone=T30:{workphone}
        Cell Phone=T30:{mobilephone}
        Department=T30
        :{department}
        Job Title=T30:{jobtitle}
        Office=T30:{office}
        SIP Address=T30:{sipaddress}


        mask the input (suitable for password entries) by appending "/password":
        Example:  
        Password=T30/password
      • Mxx/yy: Multi-line text input field
        where xx is the number of columns and yy is the number of rows
        Example: Comment=M30/4

      • Mxx/yy/r:  Multi-line rich text input field
        where xx is the number of columns and yy is the number of rows
        Example: Comment=M50/8/r


      • Mxx/yy/e:  Multi-line enhanced rich text input field
        where xx is the number of columns and yy is the number of rows
        Example: Comment=M50/8/e



      • D[item1,item2,..]: Dropdown box
        where the items are the values to be contained in the dropdown box
        Example: Favorite Color=D[red,green,blue]
        Enter a comma as the first value if you want to display a blank choice as the first entry
        Example: Favorite Color=D[,red,gree,blue]
      • R[item1,item2,..]: Radio buttons
        where the items are the values to be contained in the radio box

        Example: Sex=R[male,female]

        Preset a radio button by prefixing the preset value with an exclamation mark.
        Example: Sex=R[male,!female]

        Disable a radio button by prefixing the preset value with a caret (^) character.
        Example:
        Sex=R[male,^female]
      • C[item]: Checkbox
        where item is the value to be checked. You can also add multiple items (grouped checkboxes).

        Examples:
        Need a brochure=C[yes]
        My favorite colors=C[red,green,blue,pink]

        Preset a checkbox by prefixing the preset value with an exclamation mark.
        Example:
        My favorite colors=C[red,!green,blue,pink]

        Disable a checkbox by prefixing the preset value with a caret (^) character.
        Example:
        My favorite colors=C[red,^green,blue,pink]

        You can optionally specify the desired number of columns for both checkboxes and radio buttons by appending /n to the radio button (or checkbox) field, where “n” is the desired number of columns.

        Examples:
        Color=C[red,green,blue,pink,orange,black]/2
        Transportation=R[Car,Bike,Airplane,Train,none,other,unknown]
        /3


      • P: Date Picker
        This allows to use the Sharepoint date picker control to enter a date:



        Preset the date picker by appending the preset date separated by a colon.
        Use the {today} placeholder to preset it with today's date,

        Examples:  
        Due by=P:12/24/2011
        Due by=P:{today}
        Due by=P:{today+5}
        Due by=P:{today-3}
      • L[List,Column]: Lookup
        allows to present the "lookup" values contained in a column of a Sharepoint List (defined in the same site) as a dropdown box.
        Example: Color=L[ColorList,ColorName]

      • Unn: File Upload field
        where nn is the width (expressed in characters) of the field.
        The uploaded file will be sent as an attachment and/or added to the List item as a List item attachment.
        Example: Name=U30
      • Ann: People Picker field
        where nn is the desired width (in pixels) of the field.
        The optional “/m” parameter allows to select multiple users.
        Examples:
        Nominee=A250
        Nominee=A250/m


      • S[text]: static text
        The "S" field input type allows to enter “static” text,  eg. text that will not be shown on the form but be placed into the e-mail body
        Example: Source=S[Helpdesk Homepage]
      • Vnn: Captcha Control
        The "V" field allows to add a "Captcha" to verify that the user is human to avoid automatic submission of the form by a bot). "nn" is the number of characters displayed by the Captcha.


        Example 1:
        Captcha=V5

        Example 2:
        Captcha=V5,bgcolor=silver,fgcolor=black,size=12,height=25,width=100,font=Verdana

        where
        - 5 is the number of characters to be displayed
        - bgcolor is the box color
        - fgcolor is the character font color
        - size is the font size
        - height is the box height in pixels
        - width is the box width in pixels
        - font is the character font family



      • #: column break
        forces a column break (ie. adds the next fields in a new form column).
        Example: First Name=T24;Last Name=T24;Department=T24;#;Phone=T30;..



        Mandatory Fields:
        Please put an asterisk * character in front of the label to make the field mandatory.
        Example: *E-Mail Address=T50

        Field Input Validation:
        You can append one of the following keywords (separated by the | pipe character) to the form field to validate the data entered into the field by the user:

        email checks for a valid e-mail address
        numeric checks for a positive numeric value
        name checks for a valid name
        zip checks for a valid US ZIP code
        phone checks for a valid  US phone number
        date checks for a valid date
        ssn checks for a valid US social security number
        url checks for a valid URL
        Example: *E-Mail Address=T50|email


        Example of a simple Field Template for a basic contact form:
        Title=D[Mr.,Mrs.];First Name=T30;*Last Name=T30;*E-Mail=T50|email;
        Comment=M30/5;Thanks for your feedback!

        produces the following form:

      - Vertical: above the form controls
      - Left adjust: Left to the form controls (left-adjusted)
      - Right adjust: Left to the form controls (right-adjusted)
    • Submit Button Text:
      enter the text placed on the Form Submit button.
      You can also enter the URL of an image which then acts as an image button.
      Example: /Subsite/Site Pictures/submit.gif



    • Recipient E-Mail:
      enter the e-mail address(es) of the recipient of the submitted form. Separate multiple recipients with semicolons.
      You can optionally enter the {usermail} placeholder to use the current user's e-mail address.
      You also can pass the recipient e-mail address via an URL querystring parameter by using the "qs:" prefix followed by the querystring parameter name.
      Example: qs:recipient
    • Recipient E-Mail Cc:
      optionally enter a Cc: e-mail address of the Cc:recipient of the submitted form. You can enter the
      {usermail} placeholder to use the current user's e-mail address.
    • Recipient E-Mail Bcc:
      optionally enter a Bcc: e-mail address of the Bcc:recipient of the submitted form. You can enter the
      {usermail} placeholder to use the current user's e-mail address.
    • Sender E-Mail:
      enter the e-mail address of the sender of the submitted form.
      You can optionally enter the {usermail} placeholder to use the current user's e-mail address.
    • Mail Subject:

    • E-Mail Template: this field allows you to optionally freely design the outgoing e-mail message body.
      Example:
      This is some static text<br/>
      Firstname={First Name}<br/>
      Lastname={Last Name}<br/>
      User Comment={Comment}<br/>
      Current User’s e-mail={usermail}<br/>
      Current user’s name={username}<br/>
      Current user’s Login name={uid}<br/>
      Page URL={url}<br/>
      xxx URL query string parameter={xxx}

      Supported placeholders:

      - {field label}  (value entered into the corresponding field by the user)
      - {usermail}  (current user's e-mail address)
      - {username} (current user's name)
      - {uid} (current users logon name)
      - {url} (current page URL)
      - {querystring variable name} (value of the specified URL query string parameter)

    • Completion Message:
      enter the message to be displayed after the user has successfully submitted the form
    • Target List: optionally enter the Sharepoint List path name of the target Sharepoint List, where the form data should be saved as a new List item. 

      Enter the full List URL as follows:
      http://domain.com/site/subsite/Lists/List Name

      Example:
      http://Intranet/Helpdesk/Lists/Tickets

      Please make sure that you either name the columns in your target Sharepoint List exactly like the labels in your form or use a label alias when specifying the field.

      Example:
      Friendly Label|ListColumnName=T50
    • Page Redirection:
      enter the optional target page URL if you want to redirect the user to another page after form submission
    • License Key: enter your Product License Key (as supplied after purchase of the Quick Form Web Part license).
      Leave this field empty if you are using the evaluation version.

Hi I tried the quick form web part ,everything is working fine except that recipient email is not working .I tried with a sample email address and i didn't receive the form ,is there anything we need to configure to make the email working.

Sorry my bad.our outgoing email is not configured yet.This is really a nice webpart

Super Web Part!! Einen kleinen Verbesserungsvorschlag hätten wir dennoch anzubringen. Wir setzen das Teil im MOSS 2007 ein. Schwierigkeiten bereiten die Pflichtfelder. Angenommen, wir wollen auf der Seite mit dem Webpart noch einen anderen Webpart einfügen, erscheint bei den Pflichtfelder die Meldung, dass invalid data nicht gespeichert werden kann. Grüsse Urs Christen

Another fine web part! Is there a way to optionally set the sender email as the person logged in? It would also be nice to include text in the email that is not on the form. (in my case text tags that manipulate the helpdesk system)
Juerg  
12/2/2010 16:02 
David,
we now have added the
  • {usermail} placeholder (to provide the current user’s e-mail address),
  • a new static “S” field input type that can be used to enter “static” text
  • and the new “E-Mail Template” field to optionally allow you to freely design your outgoing e-mail message body (see description above).

I have this in a test environment at the moment using an evaluation copy and it is working excellently. I have found how to email multiple recipients which is a bonus. What I would like to know is there anyway of capturing the data for viewing?
Juerg  
12/9/2010 17:02 
Mike, would you like to capture the data in a Sharepoint List (in this case every form would need its own matching List) or just a text-based Log file ?
Mike Ruffle  
12/9/2010 17:26 
Preferably in a sharepoint list so that we can create a view from the captured data similar to the way data is captured from a custom list that is set up as a Form in sharepoint (hope that makes sense)?
GaryM  
12/9/2010 21:02 
Hi, is there any way to highlight the Completion Message (size, color etc) to make it more obvious to the user that they have made a successful post, Thanks.
Juerg  
12/9/2010 21:15 
GaryM,
yes, by adding HTML to the "Completion Message" box as eg.

<span style='font:18pt verdana;color:red'>Your message has been sent! Thank you.</span>
GaryM  
12/9/2010 23:17 
Thanks Juerg, much appreciated
Mike Ruffle  
12/22/2010 15:23 
Hi Juerg. I refer to my previos posting ( Mike Ruffle 12/9/2010 16:56 ) about capturing submitted data in a sharepoint list. Is this possible?
Doris  
12/22/2010 16:16 
Alternatively, would it be possible to redirect away from the form altogether and just show the message so there is no doubt the message was submitted successfully?
Juerg  
12/22/2010 17:06 
Mike, this is currently not possible but we will add this feature to the next release (scheduled for mid January)
Juerg  
12/23/2010 18:34 
Doris,
we have now added the new „Page Redirection“ setting which allows you to enter the URL of the target page for redirection after form submission.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Doris  
2/6/2011 13:06 
Hi Juerg, did you have an opportunity to work on the request above to have the information saved to a list? Great idea!
Juerg  
2/7/2011 11:30 
Doris, not yet, but this feature will be added to the next release (due by the end of February)
Tony Robins  
2/10/2011 14:32 
Hi Juerg, just trying out this and it works great. Just 1 slight annoyance. The E-mail Template is very basic and all the text just concatonates into 1 continuous line. Is there any way to create a more pleasing looking e-mail template.
Juerg  
2/10/2011 15:18 
Tony,
you can actually embed HTML tags into the E-Mail template and thus add line breaks.
Example:
This is some static text<br>
Firstname={First Name}<br>
Lastname={Last Name}
Mike  
2/22/2011 13:21 
Hi Juerg. Is it possible to use a drop-down and populate it from a sharepoint list? For instance, if I have a sharepoint list of 50-items already created can I pull this list into Quick Form rather than rewriting/copy-pasting the items into a Quick Form drop-down?
Tom Wright  
3/1/2011 17:11 
Any plans to allow attachments to forms?
Aidan Dunsdon  
3/2/2011 11:45 
Hi Juerg. Will this work with an anonymous access sharepoint site in SP 2007? I wonder if adding list integratiopn will preventing it working on anon sites. We tried a webpart from another vendor that didnt work in anon sites for this reason. We need a form like this for our external anon acccess site. I understand that MS fixed this in 2010 but we neeed it for a 2007 installation. Thanks.
Juerg  
3/2/2011 18:39 
Aidan,
the current version of the „Quick Form“ web part does not use Sharepoint Lists (eg. it just sends the data to one or more e-mail recipients). We will add a feature in the next release to also allow to store the submitted data in a Sharepoint List. We aim to also make this available for anonymous users (by adding the data to the List using “elevated privileges”, eg. using the Sharpoint application pool account acting on behalf of the user).
Juerg  
3/2/2011 19:09 
Tom, we will be going to add this feature to the next release (scheduled for the end of March).
Marco  
5/4/2011 14:31 
Hi Juerg, great webpart (bought it). I've to recommendations for optimization:
- Additional field where the text "please enter a value " for empty mandatory fields could be overwritten
- If a page contains the webpart and mandatory fields are defined, these fields must be filled in order to checkin the page (otherwise an error message occures).

regards Marco
Carlos  
5/4/2011 20:41 
Is it possible to add a field to grab the current user logged into Sharepoint instead of having to enter their name manually?
Juerg  
5/5/2011 09:46 
Carlos,
yes, if you set up your own e-mail template (via the web part’s “E-Mail Template” setting) you then can embed the following placeholders:

{usermail} current user's e-mail address
{username} current user's name
{uid} current user's logon name

This will automatically be filled in by the web part so the (authenticated) user will not have to manually fill out a “Name” field.
Abbas

Any plans to allow attachments to forms??
Shawn  
6/9/2011 23:10 
I am testing out this form and I entered the column break with a # but it did not do so. Here's my entry: Phone Number=T12;#;No. of PCs=T4; Any reason you see that it wouldn't work?
Juerg  
6/10/2011 09:36 
Shawn,
can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ? It should read 1.0.12 or 1.0.13
Please note that this feature was recently added on May 13.
If you have an older version, please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL,
Dave K  
8/5/2011 23:51 
Great web part! One thing I have run into is the ability to add a static field to a list, is this possible? I am trying to write the Title of the new list item as well as the username and email of the person submitting, but they dot populate in the list it seems unless they are on the form. Also, the S option does not seem to like using the special placeholders such as {username}. Also, is there a way to specific the border color as a hex color? For example border:5px solid orange; works as expected, however border:5px # ffffcc or color:#ffffcc doesn’t seem to work. Thanks so much for all the great tools!
Juerg  
8/8/2011 14:03 
Dave K,
we have now added the capability to have also the „static text“ submit its value to the List.
It now also accepts the {usermail}, {username} and {uid} placeholders.

Regarding the CSS border: Please note that the proper CSS syntax for borders is: border:5px solid #ffffcc

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Dave K  
8/8/2011 14:31 
Worked like a champ! Thanks so much for the great products and outstanding support!
Ron  
8/12/2011 22:36 
Is there a way to post multiple attachments, or will it work with multiple attachment fields? We are going to use this for a whislteblower contact form and would like the users to not have to zip multiple attachments into a folder. Otherwise it is working great in testing!!
Juerg  
8/15/2011 15:17 
Ron, we have now added the capability to place multiple attachment fields on the form. (a single “multiple file upload control” will be considered for a future release due to its complexity). Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Richard Everett  
8/24/2011 19:06 
Any chance of some form of human challenge-response authentication (like CAPTCHA). We are getting "a lot" of spam on just one of the forms we have active. That aside, an excellent web part.
Juerg  
8/24/2011 19:32 
Richard, you might consider to add a mandatory numeric field as follows:

*Please enter the value 123=T10|numeric

This should stop bots from successfully submitting the form. We also will consider to add a “Captcha” field type in the next version.
Mike H  
8/25/2011 15:39 
Hi Juerg. I'm evaluating the webpart and have a few questions. The date validation is great, but is there a way to use a standard date picker (Date=X;)? The impersonation is great in some cases, but generally I would like to see the created by field populated with the actual authenticated user, is there any way to do this? When tying into an existing generic list, the field name might be 'Title', but it would be nice if on the form I could use a friendly display name like, 'Annoucement Subject', is this possible? Thanks!
Abbas  
9/2/2011 09:56 
Hi, Is it possible to add a field to grab the "IP Address" of the Sender? regards, Abbas
Juerg  
9/2/2011 14:08 
Abbas, no, this is currently not possible. Would this be an important feature for you ?
Juerg  
9/2/2011 17:21 
Mike H, we have now added the 3 features as follows:
  1. You now can add a “Date Picker” field ("P"). This allows to use the Sharepoint date picker control to enter a date
  2. The “Created by” List column is now populated with the user that posted the form
  3. You now can separate the List field name from the displayed label as follows:
    Announcement subject|Title=T40 (ie. add the target column name, separated by the pipe character)
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

Hi Juerg, Yes, I think this is important because the specifications of the sender (such as IP Address & ClientName) can be usefull. I also need to insert images for background or logo in the form.Is it possible too? regards, Abbas
Juerg  
9/5/2011 18:46 

Abbas,
we’ll add the feature to insert the user’s IP number (using the {ip} placeholder) in the next version.
You can embed images as follows:

Form Template:
<img src='/Site Pictures/triangle.gif'>; Title=D[Mr.,Mrs.,Miss]; First Name=T40;

and use a Form background image as follows:

Form CSS Style:
border:5px solid #408080;background-image:url(/Site Pictures/mapleLeaf.jpg)

Our target market for SP Marketplace (spmarketplace.com) is the multi-tenant hosted sharepoint environment like Office 365. Have you considered putting your configuration information into a Sharepoint List to drive the Webpart as a sandboxed web part.
Juerg  
9/16/2011 14:55 
Earl, we‘ll have a „sandbox“ compatible version of the Quick Form web part ready in about 3 to 4 weeks.

How does one apply styling to invidual form elements? Thats is to reorganise the form field positions to make it use the width of the page rather than just be a single column. Thanks in advance. Greate solution btw. I have been searching for this for ages!
Juerg  
9/20/2011 14:43 
Asvin, you currently cannot apply CSS styling to the individual form elements but you might consider to use multi-column form layout by using the # column break option (see description on top of page).
Asvin  
9/23/2011 05:03 
Bit of a shame about the fields. Thanks Juerg!
Asvin  
9/24/2011 09:21 
The multi columning is working well. Perhaps a suggestion - for more field validation (US zip, phone & SS not useful for us down under!) .

I receive the following error when I try to submit a form, and ideas? Form List Insert Error: Length cannot be less than zero. Parameter name: length sendMessageClick Page is valid=True getting user info
Juerg  
9/26/2011 19:01 
Mike, please make sure to not enter a trailing "/" in the web part's "Target List" URL setting.
Mike H  
10/19/2011 23:29 
Adding the 'P' option for date picker fields was hugely helpful, but I now have a request to use this web part for room booking. Would it be possible to allow for date only or date/time when using a date picker field? Also, making the created by match the actually submitter has opened up some great opportunities for us, but we do still have uses for an anonymous submission option, such as the 'CIO Suggestion Box' which I would love to move to this web part from another automation platform. Is it possible to make anonymous submission optional?
Renee  
10/26/2011 03:47 
An anon option would be a big help for us also. We have a large number of users in a production environment who use our web in kiosk mode. They don't have credentials for the network and if they could still submit forms requesting support or reporting production data it would save us a lot of paperwork.
Juerg  
10/26/2011 13:19 
Renee, can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ? We have added support for anonymous users with version 1.0.8 Are you planning to submit the form data to a Sharepoint List ?
Mike H  
11/3/2011 23:11 
Would it be possible to extend the field substitution capability to the completion message field? It would be nice if I could say 'Thank you for your submission, Michael'. To indicate that we do know who send in the form.
Juerg  
11/4/2011 12:37 
Mike H,
we have now added the capability to add a field placeholder to the web part’s “Completion Message” setting.
Example: Thank you for your submission, {First Name}

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Zeytoon  
11/5/2011 15:00 
Hi, Thanks for this cool web part. How can I use it for sending a new record (Discussion) in Discussion Boards? I want to use it in one of my projects thank you
Juerg  
11/7/2011 10:56 
Zeytoon, you easily can create a new discussion thread by adding the following two fields to the form:

Subject=T40;Body=M40/4

If you rather need to be able to reply to an existing thread, we will have to do some investigation to check if this is possible.
Matt  
11/7/2011 11:12 
Could you add a people picker tag, so we can select a user on the site and then send the email to that person? thanks
Juerg  
11/7/2011 22:39 
Matt, would you like to be able to add a People Picker control to the form or to the web part's tool pane to set the "Recipient E-Mail" property ?
Matt  
11/8/2011 10:45 
To the form, we'd like users to be able to email each other, so the easiest way for this is for them to be able to select a user from the site. We'd need a token for this also, to pick up the selected user (user from people picker) email address, so we can add to the recipient email field. thanks
Matt  
11/8/2011 18:40 
Is it possible to have a query string token in the Recipient Email field?
Juerg  
11/9/2011 19:48 
Matt,
we have now added the new qs: prefix to pass in an URL query string parameter to be used as the recipient e-mail address.

Example: qs:recipent

(using a page URL like: yourpage.aspx?recipient=support@amrein.com)
Adam  
11/10/2011 20:38 
I have v27, I have to fill in information before I can publish a form with required fields. Is there a setting that I need to change, so that I don't have to completely fill in the form?
Juerg  
11/10/2011 21:12 
Adam, there is a yet unresolved problem with mandatory fields and Publishing pages. You will need to enter a value into each mandatory field whenever you check in the page. We unfortunately have not yet found a means to detect this particular situation (so we could temporarily disable the RequiredFieldValidator).
zeytoon  
11/11/2011 10:13 
Hi, I have some qustions. Is it possible to: 1- set default value for the fields? 2- use "lookup fields" in the form? 3- define multi column for "Radio buttons" & "Checkboxes" Thank you

11/22/2011 14:44 
Hello dear admin, Like "Zeytoon" I need to use some "lookup fields" in my "contact-us list". Is it possible to use this web part for filling this fiels in my form? Thank you I also like to set some default values for my fields. Is it possible too? thanks a lot!
Nicole  
12/1/2011 17:01 
Hi, I am using the Target List option to save data entered using this web part into a list on our site, but it seems to be erroring out because the Name has been changed on the list. When we create the list, we name it without using spaces so the URL is clean, but then we go back and add spaces to the name to make it more readable. Any way this could be fixed so that we could have the best of both worlds?
Dan Neuman  
12/1/2011 17:49 
Can you add the capability to add rich text or enhanced rich text fields, so the users can add bold and other font information to the messages?

Anonymous access is disabled on my sharepoint site. How do I populate a field with the authenticated person that submitted the form?
Juerg  
12/1/2011 18:06 
Dan,
regarding adding the user name to the target List:
We actually added this feature with version 1.0.20 on August 29, 2011. This means that the logged in user will be reflected in the Sharepoint List’s “Created by” field.
Can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
If you have an older version, you might consider to re-download the updated Zip fileand then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Dan Neuman  
12/1/2011 18:18 
Is there a way to combine two or more form fields into one sharepoint list field? I want to use an announcement list to get the summary look on a webpart, but want to combine two fields into the title of the list. i.e. TargetName + ' / ' + TargetDepartment ==> Title field of sharepoint announcement.
Juerg  
12/1/2011 19:31 
Dan, field concatenation is not supported by the web part, but you could add a new column of type “Calculated” to your List as follows:

=[TargetName] & "/" & [TargetDepartment]

and then change the summary web part to use the new column instead of the Title column (if this is possible).
Juerg  
12/2/2011 17:22 
zeytoon and Alaki,
we have now added the option to set default values for the fields:
  • Preset a text field by appending the preset value separated by a colon.
    Example: Name=T30:Fred
  • Preset a radio button by prefixing the preset value with an exclamation mark.
    Example: Sex=R[male,!female]
  • Preset a checkbox by prefixing the preset value with an exclamation mark.
    Example: My favorite colors=C[red,!green,blue,pink]
  • Preset the date picker by appending the preset date separated by a colon.
    Example: Due by=P:12/24/2011

Lauren  
12/13/2011 16:35 
Is there a way to include a clear or cancel button besides submit?
Juerg  
12/13/2011 17:23 
Lauren, this is currently not supported. Would this be important for you ?
Dan Neuman  
12/13/2011 18:18 
From the previous posts, I see you were going to add the capability to have the computer name/ip address to the email feature. My users would like to know the computer name that submitted the form. How can I do this?
Juerg  
12/13/2011 19:54 
Dan, we will be adding the {ip} placeholder in the next version but we will not be able to also add the local user’s computer name, since this information is not available to the server. You also could consider to use the {username} placeholder if your users are authenticated.
Abbas  
12/16/2011 09:44 
Hi Juerg
1- Is it possible to use "Lookup Fields" in this wb part?
2- Is it possible to have multi-column fields, between some of the rows?
3- Is it possible to add more than one field placeholder to the web part's "Completion Message" setting? I also need to send the value of "ID" field to the sender! Example: Thank you for your submission, {First Name} & " " & {LastName}. This is Your message id: "{id}" ! Thank you Juerg
Juerg  
12/16/2011 18:50 
Stephen, we now have added the option to embed a form field placeholder in the web part’s “Page Redirection” setting. Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly or update the WSP solution.
Vitek  
12/19/2011 13:10 
Hello Juerg, i have tried evaluation version of the webpart, it seems to be exactly what I'm looking for. But before purchase I want to ask, if you plan to add posibility of localization error messages to another language than english (e.g. some property file).
Juerg  
12/19/2011 13:26 
Vitek,
you can localize the text strings displayed by the web part (the web part tool pane will still be in English though) by adding the Locale.txt file (which is cantained in the downloadable Zip file).
Please add the Locale.txt file to the following location on each of your Sharepoint web front end servers:

SP 2007:
c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\template\features\AEFormWebpart

SP 2010:
c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\template\features\AEFormWebpart

The file contains 10 text strings which you can freely modify and translate to your language.
Vitek  
12/19/2011 13:35 
Hello Juerg, thank you very much for your fast replay. I wish you many satisfied customers. We already bougt this webpart, which save our time of development.
Vitek  
12/19/2011 15:57 
Juerg, I'm using webpart to store results in List and try to use "S" filed to store form name (as an ID where entry comes from). And I'm getting error Form List Insert Error:

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
sendMessageClick Page is valid=True getting user info
Site=http://www.cleverlance.com/cz/Lists
List=RegContactList
Field=Title/s

Using "T" field type works fine, so list and field name should be correct. Have you any idea? Thank you very much.

P.S. I'm using this webpart also on publishing pages, so I'm facing same problem as Adam (filling entries before publish).
Vitek  
12/19/2011 17:42 
Hello, using image button will not call validation of form e.g. mandatory fileds and send empty form.
Juerg  
12/19/2011 19:29 
Vitek, did you enter the static field into the web part's "Field Template" setting as follows:

Title=S[some static text here];
Vitek  
12/19/2011 21:37 
Hello Juerg, after several tests it seems, that using template "Title=S[some text]" works only for logged users. An anonymous user obtain error message mentioned above. When I'm NOT using "S" template it works for both (logged and anonymous) users. Hope this helps to find problem. Thanks.
Juerg  
12/20/2011 14:22 
Vitek,
we have now fixed the problem with the "S" field and anonymous users.
Please, re-download the updated Zip file and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly
Mario  
12/23/2011 12:31 
Hello Juerg, We have not tested it yet. But is it possible to NOT empty the fields after the save. So we can enter the values and save it multiple times? With or without a page refresh. Kind regards, Mario
Juerg  
12/23/2011 14:25 
Vitek, the image submit button now also supports the form field validation.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly or update the WSP solution
Juerg  
12/23/2011 14:35 
Mario,
we have now added a new option which preserves the field values after having submitted the form. You can activate the feature by entering “noclear” into the web part’s “Page Redirection” setting:

Hello Juerg, We want to make a form with a Date Picker / Hours / Minutes columns beside each other. So these columns are seperated with # (P;#;T;#;T). There are also other fields in the form so it is quite impossible to get these 3 columns nicely beside each other. Or do you have a good advise how to achieve this? Kind regards, Mario
Mario  
1/13/2012 09:15 
Hello Juerg, We send 1 parameter in the url that opens the form. And we need to be able to save this parameter value in a sharepoint list column. Can this be done? Kind regards, Mario
Juerg  
1/13/2012 13:42 

Mario,
we have now added this feature as follows:

First Name=T40;~Last Name=T40;~E-Mail=T40

ie. if you prefix the field definition with a ~ tilde character, the field will then be displayed on the same line.
Please note that you now also can have the date picker display the date AND the time as follows by using the new “/datetime” option:

Birthday=P/datetime;

We have now added the option to pass URL querystring parameters to the Sharepoint List as follows:

SomeField=S[this is {someUrlParameter}];

ie. you can now pass the value of an URL parameter (enclosed in curly braces) via the “Static” field to your Sharepoint List.

Juerg  
1/13/2012 16:02 
Dan,
we have now released an new version of the web part which supports a rich text field option as follows:

Mxx/yy/r: Multi-line rich text input field where xx is the number of columns and yy is the number of rows

Example:
Comment=M50/8/r
Mario  
1/15/2012 23:15 
Hello Juerg, Great. Thanks. A technical issue: We have chosen for Form Layout "Vertical" but the ~ makes these fields jump to "LeftAdjust". Kind regards, Mario
Mario  
1/16/2012 13:40 
Hello Juerg, It would be nice if we could use in the {field label} in the Completion Message. Kind regards, Mario
Mario  
1/16/2012 15:01 
Hello Juerg, An issue of great importance for us: When an item is created in the sharepoint list the "created" event is not triggered. In our case this means that planned workflows do not start when the item is created. Can you fix this? Kind regards, Mario
Juerg  
1/16/2012 18:55 
Mario,
we have now added the new /uid switch (to be appended to the web part’s “Target List” setting) which uses the logged-in user account to create the List entry. This ensures that the workflow (when using SP 2010) is properly started as expected.
Please note that the users now need “contribute” permissions on the target List. (we will add support for anonymous users at some later point).

Example: http://sharepoint.com/someSite/Lists/someList/uid

We also have fixed the problem with multiple fields on the same line when using the vertical layout.

Furthermore, you now can use any (and also multiple) field label placeholder in the web part’s “Completion Message” setting:

Example: Dear {First Name} {Last Name}.<br>Your message has been sent. Thank you.

Please re-download the updated Zip file from our web site at /apps/page.asp?Q=5793, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Abbas  
1/17/2012 08:43 
Hi Juerg, Thank you for your nice and fast support. I want to report a bug: I think there is a conflict between "entering “noclear” into the web part’s “Page Redirection” setting" and "using field label placeholder in the web part’s “Completion Message” setting"! We can not use both of them! Thank you, Abbas
Abbas  
1/17/2012 08:47 
Hi Juerg! Is there any way to change the location of “Completion Message” in some cases? For example, I want to show it at top of the form, (when I have a big form!) Thank you, Abbas
Juerg  
1/17/2012 14:29 
Abbas,
the problem with the "noclear" option in combination with placeholders used in the "Completion Message" setting has now been fixed.

We now have added the option to place the completion message at the top of the form (as opposed to the bottom) by appending “/top” to the web part’s “Completion Message” setting.

Example:
Thanks for your submission/top

Please re-download the updated Zip file , extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

Jon  
1/17/2012 16:30 
Hi Juerg, firstly id just like to say how great this webpart is....I have so many different uses for it its unreal and its an absolute lifesaver, so thankyou. Also amazed at how you ahve implemented so many of the posters comments into the new versions of the form. great. Now for a question. Is there a way of only letting the user signed into sharepoint only filling out the form once? i work in a school and use this for collecting information from Students and they seem to enjoy just hitting the submitt button over and over and over! :-) many thanks Jon
Jon Whiles  
1/17/2012 17:41 
Hi Juerg, It seems that when using the attachment field option there is a limit on the file size. Is this something i can change, it currently semes to fail after about 1.5mb with an error "exceeds limit" but it would be really useful to ajust this to around 5mb. Thanks again for your help. p.s I am in the process of buying this webpart from you, just awaiting confirmation from the powers that be. thanks.
Juerg  
1/17/2012 18:59 

Jon,
can you check your „Maximum Upload Size“ setting by going to:
Central Administration/Application Management/Manage Web Applications (assuming you are using SP 2010).
Then click on “General Settings” and scroll down to the “Maximum Upload Size” setting.

we have now added a new option to let a specific user only submit a form once.
You can enable the feature by adding /once to the web part’s “Submit Button Text” setting.

Example:
Submit Form/once
Praveen  
1/19/2012 15:50 
Great product, we started using it and it works well. One item that does not work for me is the Rich Text editor. Secondly, I have a multi line text box in the form and when user enters text in multiple paragraphs, the formatting is lost in the email sent. everything is concatinated into one single paragraph. Anything I can do to retain the format that the user entered in the multiline text box?
Juerg  
1/19/2012 19:39 
Praveen,
we just recently added the rich text feature two days ago.
We now also have fixed the problem with the missing line breaks entered into the Multiline text box.
Please re-download the updated Zip file , extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Mario  
1/20/2012 12:12 
Hello Juerg, 2 issues:

1 when we use "|numeric" it does not accept a decimal.
2 We have a Dutch site. In case we use a decimal we have to use a dot instead of a comma.

Any chance to have this adjusted? Kind regards, Mario
Juerg  
1/20/2012 15:46 
Mario,
we have now improved the „numeric“ field validator so that it now also accepts a decimal separator (which is correctly applied according to the site’s regional settings).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Mike Kea  
1/20/2012 16:15 
Juerg, Is there a way to have a dropdown that displays one value on the form, but provides a different value in the email? Example, State=D[PA,TX,DE]; but the value chosen yields Pennsylvania or Texas or Delaware in the email?
Juerg  
1/23/2012 18:54 

Mike,

we have now added a new feature which allows you to define both a display value in the form and transmit a different value:

Example:
State=D[PA¦Pennsylvania,TX¦Texas,DE¦Delaware]

ie. add the value to be transmitted, separated by a ‘broken’ pipe character.

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

Abbas  
1/24/2012 09:05 
Hi Juerg, Is there a way to set the location of the web part in the web part zon (or in the page)? I want to set it in the center of the page. Thank you, Abbas
Abbas  
1/24/2012 09:17 
Hi Juerg, Thank you very much for providing "Lookup Field" in this web part as follows:

L[LookupList,LookupColumn]

Example:
Color=L[ColorLookupList,ColorName]

The lookup values will be presented as a dropdown list in the form. When saving the form data to a Sharepoint List, either a text or a “Lookup” column can be specified for the target column. please add this new feature in top of this page, I think it is very important for many users.
Thanks, Abbas
Michael Kea  
1/24/2012 21:51 
Juerg, is it possible to combine add a feature to the lookup field in the webpart? Feature: Set a display value and a transmit value from the same list. Syntax: L[LookupList,LookupColumn,TransmitColumn] Car=L[CarLookupList,Model,Model] would show Ford Focus or Nissan Altima but only transmit Focus or Altima once the form was submitted.
Juerg  
1/25/2012 19:00 
Abbas,
we have now added the new „Center Web Part” option which horizontally centers the Form web part in the available web part zone.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Juerg  
1/25/2012 19:04 
Michael,
we have now added the new option to optionally specify a second Lookup List column name as follows (per your suggestion):

L[LookupList,LookupColumn,LookupTransmitColumn]

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

Hi Juerg, I downloaded the new release and checked it. It works great! Thanks and regards, Abbas
NG  
1/25/2012 23:00 
Is it possible to have a form input field, such as email, as the Sender Email? We would like the email template to come from the email address in the Email field. We would also like the ability to cc the sender. Thanks.
Juerg  
1/26/2012 13:59 
NG,
you can pass the value of a form field both to the web part's "Sender E-Mail" and "Recipient E-Mail" settings by using the {Field Label} placeholder.

Example:
Sender E-Mail={E-Mail Address}
Recipient E-Mail=info@amrein.com;
{E-Mail Address}
NG  
1/26/2012 21:18 
That's great to hear! Is that feature in a recent release? We downloaded the web part several months ago. Thanks.
Juerg  
1/27/2012 00:51 
NG, the features were added in October 2011 with version 1.0.24 so you might redownload the current veriosn and update the DLL.
Dan Neuman

Loving this form. I have a request to add a date field, and default it with today's date. Is there a way to default a date field with today's date? i.e. Found on=P:{today}?
Juerg  
1/31/2012 20:45 
Dan,

we have now added the option to preset a date field with today’s date as follows:

Examples:
Found on=P:{today}
Found on=P:{today}|date

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

I am using the quick form to submit data to a SharePoint list. I have a category dropdown with multiple options, but I'd only like this particular form to be used for one type of event. Is it possible to set a default value for that field without making it visible on the form?
Mike Kea  
2/7/2012 20:13 
Juerg,
Is it possible to change the page redirection link based on a value selected in a form? for example: /Pages/{selection}.aspx
I realize that the page would have to be named the same as the selection, and that's fine. Thanks. Great app by the way.
Juerg  
2/8/2012 11:39 
Mike,
yes, you can add on or more placeholders in the web part’s “Page Redirection” setting.

Example:
/Pages/{Selection}.aspx

where {Selection} corresponds to a field in your form.
We added this feature in December 2011 with version 1.0.29 so you might have to update the web part.
Juerg  
2/8/2012 23:23 
Mike,
yes, please use the „s“ form field type:

S[text]: static text
The "S" field input type allows to enter “static” text, eg. text that will not be shown on the form but be placed into the e-mail body and/or saved ot the target list.

Example:
Category=S[Vacation]

Hi Juerg,
I created a form for filling up a list. In that list I want to record the "UserName" of the sender.I used this methods:
User name=T35:{uid}
and:
User name=T35:{username}
But it does not work correctly! please help me whats my fault?
Thanks , Abbas
Abbas  
2/12/2012 16:46 
Hi Juerg,
I want let a specific user only submit a form once. I added the "/once" to the web part’s “Submit Button Text” setting.
Example:
Submit/once
But I have some problems:
1- I deleted the record (item) from the list, but still can not submit again!
2- When I log on to site with another UserName, I can not submit anything, and the "Submit-Button" is disabled!
I think I need your help again Juerg!
Thanks, Abbas

I love that you've added the ability to preset the date picker, any chance you could add functionality similar to that build-in to SharePoint so I could preset to today +/- some number of days? This would be excellent for providing standard announcement expiration.
Juerg  
2/17/2012 14:40 
Mike,
we have now added the possibility to enter a “number of days” offset to the {today} preset placeholder.

Examples:
Expires:P{today+5}
Started:P{today-10}

(please make sure to enter the sign and value without any blank characters).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Juerg  
2/17/2012 18:24 
Abbas,
the „/once“ option actually uses a browser cookie to keep track of the users that already have submitted the form. Thus once a user on a certain computer has submitted the form, no one will be able to submit it again using the same computer.
We might change this behavior by using cookies that take care of the logged-in user account name, but this would not work on a anonymous site.
Juerg  
2/17/2012 18:28 
Abbas,
you currently can apply the {uid} and {username} placeholders to the e-Mail template and to the “S” static text form field, but not to a “T” Text field.
Laura  
2/21/2012 15:40 
This is just what I've been needing. However, when I try to make the "comment" field required, it's not working. The form is still submitting. Help?

When setting up a lookup field pulled from a SharePoint list, is there a way to NOT make the drop down field pre-selected with the first item from the lookup list? Can the first choice be a blank or be empty and then the rest of the list follows?
Juerg  
2/22/2012 13:05 
Laura,
we have now fixed the problem with the rich text box configured as “required”.
We also have added the new option to allow for a blank first choice for the Lookup dropdown box by specifying:

Label=L[LookupList,LookupColumn,,0]

Please note that the new “0” option is actually the fourth parameter within the square brackets (the third parameter is explained in my post dating from January 25, 2012).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Anon  
2/22/2012 17:31 
When using a lookup field as the Recipient email gives an error. The form template I created is Email form to=L[Contacts,E-Mail]. If I replace with a hard coded email address instead of using the label name, then it works fine. Any thoughts. I'm getting the following error when using {Email form to} in the Recipient email.

Form Send Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
sendMessageClick
Page is valid=True

sending to: {Email form to}

Juerg  
2/22/2012 20:20 
Anon,
we have now fixed this problem and it is now possible to use a Lookup field to select the recipient e-mail address.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Laure  
2/24/2012 16:16 
Thanks Juerg for making a blank first choice for Label=L[LookupList,LookupColumn,,0], but when defining this as a required field with the *, it's not checking this column to make sure there is actually a value chosen when it's coming from this label. Not sure if you can include a script to check to make sure it's not defined as 0 also when a * is assigned to the drop down label.
Juerg  
2/27/2012 16:16 
Lauren,
we have now taken care of this omission (ie. you now can also make a Lookup field required).
Please re-download the updated Zip file from our web site, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.
Mike H  
3/1/2012 23:53 
Are there any plans to implement the feature Abbas referenced on 2/12/12? I think it would be great if we could pre-populate information we already have about the user, such as name and email address.
Juerg  
3/2/2012 11:22 
Abbas and Mike,
we have now implemented the option to use the following placeholders to preset a form text box:

{uid}
{usermail}
{username}


Example:
Your Name=T40:{username}

Please re-download the updated Zip file , extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

3/5/2012 15:43 
This web part is quickly becoming my go to form automation tool. These functions might go beyond the scope of your web part, but I'm wondering fi you've thought about the possibility of using cascading lookups? For instance, if I select US in the country field, the city field would only contains US cities. Also is there any possibility of allowing for a multiple selection listbox to be used with lookup fields?
Niek  
3/12/2012 13:56 
Hi Juerg,

I saw the variable fields like: Page URL={url}
How can i save this variable (page url) to de targetted SharePoint list?
Many thanks in advance!
Juerg  
3/12/2012 14:56 
Niek,
we have now also added the „{url}“ placeholder to the “S” (Static Text) field. This allows you to transmit the page URL by including the following field in the web part’s “Form Template”:

PageURL=S[{url}]

If you also define a “PageURL” column in your Sharepoint List (of type “single line of text”), the value will also be stored in your target List.

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command.
Doris  
3/13/2012 18:49 
Hi Juerg, I haven't looked at this is a while. What a great bunch of new features you added!! Two questions: 1) I would like to use columns in the middle of the page. I assume I can use <br> to skip lines to bring the text in the second column in line with the first. But is there any way to stop the columns and return to a single column? Or do I need to use the ~ feature? 2) Do I have to do something more than put Dear {First Name} {Last Name}. in the “Completion Message” setting? It didn't seem to work for me. Thanks!

Example: Dear {First Name} {Last Name}.
wc  
3/14/2012 14:58 
Is there a way to make sure the form is only submitted once per user?
Juerg  
3/14/2012 15:24 
wc,
yes, you can configure the web part to let the users only submit a form once. You can enable the feature by appending /once to the web part’s “Submit Button Text” setting.

Example:
Submit Form/once
wc  
3/14/2012 16:25 
Thanks! That disabled the button after submission. How does it keep track of it? I'm using a sharepoint list, does it work if form is only emailed?
Juerg  
3/14/2012 21:36 
wc,
the web part keeps track of the users that already have submitted the form by setting a browser cookie in the client's browser.
Juerg  
3/15/2012 18:09 
Doris,
You can actually use two (or more) columns by using the # column break character. You then also would need to insert blank vertical space to line up the controls in the second column using <div> tags.

Example:
First Name=T30;
Last Name=T30;
Email Account Required=C[Yes];
Genie=C[Yes];
Great Plains Accounting=C[Yes,No];
#;
<div style='height:113px'></div>;
Date1=P;
Date2=P;
<div style='height:40px'></div>



The “Completion Message” text is actually not passed on to the target page (as set up via the “Page Redirection” setting). We could add a feature to pass it on via an URL parameter but you then would need to be able to pick it up on your target page.
Adam K  
3/27/2012 22:49 
Hi, I don't know if I am missing this but is there a way that the mail subject can be filled out by the user in the form? This way it is not the same email subject every time.
Thanks.
heriberto  
3/27/2012 23:37 
hi, how can I change the color of the fields in form templete?

thanks
Juerg  
3/28/2012 11:22 
Heriberto,
you can add the following style to your Sharepoint CSS style sheet:

DIV.aeformstyle INPUT {font-size:12px;background-color:green}

The above will affect all textboxes within the web part’s <div> form container.
Juerg  
3/28/2012 11:27 
Adam,
just add the name of the field label (enclosed in curly braces) to the web part’s “Mail Subject” setting:

Example:
Sent by {First name}
Anita  
4/11/2012 17:20 
I don't see any input field for the Page Redirection. Is that feature in a new version of the web part? Thank you.
Juerg  
4/12/2012 11:47 
Anita,
can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ? We added this feature with version 1.0.4 on December 23, 2010
Dan Neuman  
4/24/2012 22:43

Dan Neuman  
4/24/2012 23:39 
Nevermind on the SMTP Question. My security guys disabled the SMTP traffic on the sharepoint server. I had to change the SMTP server in Central Admin, and now it is all working again. Thanks for a great Web Part!
Steve  
5/4/2012 17:02 
Hi, I have a form with three multiline text boxes M80/10/r and it sends e-mail at the end. A user filled out the form with about 1k worth of text in each. The first one showed up ok, the 2nd one was truncated and the 3rd never made it in the e-mail at all. Are there some limits on the size of the email messages or is there a fix? I am using 1.0.43 on MOSS 2007.

Thanks.
Juerg  
5/7/2012 14:02 
Steve,
we have now added a new option to force the web part to use the SMTP outbound server (as opposed to the internal Sharepoint SMTP mail utility).
To set the switch please append /SMTP to the web part’s “Sender E-Mail” setting.
Please re-download the updated Zip file and then replace the DLL.
Steve  
5/8/2012 15:35 
The /SMTP fix worked perfectly. Thanks for the speedy update!

Labels are called the same so any ideas?
Juerg  
5/24/2012 10:45

Juerg  
6/1/2012 11:41 
Erin,
You can either embed an image as follows:

Form Template:
<img src='/Site Pictures/triangle.gif'>;Title=D[Mr.,Mrs.]; First Name=T40;

or use a Form background image as follows:

Form CSS Style:
background-image:url(/Site Pictures/mapleLeaf.jpg)

Is there a way to use the value of a checkbox to display a conditional message in the email template?

In the form Template, I have a checkbox called, Reply Requested=C[Yes]. Within the email template, is there a way to do something like... IIF({Reply Requested}, "Call the User", "No need to respond").

As always, thanks for your help.
Juerg  
7/9/2012 14:10 
Dan,
we have now added the option to enter two strings corresponding to a checkbox field into the web part’s "E-Mail Template" setting as follows:

Example:
{Reply Requested|Call the User;No need to respond}

ie. enter the two optional strings after the label name, prefixed by a “|” pipe character and separated by a semicolon.

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command.
Wendy  
7/27/2012 10:48 
FYI, we have discovered that if more than one field starts with the same word, AE Form crashes the page and has to be delete by Web Part Maintenance view. e.g. "Previous work location" and then another field called "Previous job title" will crash the page throwing up an Unknown Error.
Juerg  
7/27/2012 11:05 
Wendy,
the problem you are observing was present in the first versions and has actually been fixed in later versions (the current version is 1.0.49).
Please download the current Zip file from our web site, extract and then replace the DLL, followed by an “iisreset” command if you placed the DLL in c:\windows\assembly.

Is there anyway to BCC or CC someone in the SendTo feature? I been trying to play with this and haven't found a way. Everything else we need works GREAT good work but can't figure out if this is possible or not.
Juerg  
7/30/2012 17:59 

Chris,
you actually can add multiple recipients to the „Send To“ setting:

recipient1@domain.com;recipient2@domain.com

(ie. separate the recipients by semicolons).

We also have now updated the web part by adding both a „Recipient E-Mail Cc:” and a „Recipient E-Mail Bcc:” Web Part setting.

Is it possible to post to a list anonymously? It seems there was an update that may have taken this away? We would like to use the form to solicit anonymous feedback on some activities, but can’t seem to get it, but I was able to do it in the past before the .20 update.

Thanks!

Dave
Juerg  
8/4/2012 17:02 
Dave,
to allow to submit data to a Sharepoint List anonymously please add the /anon postfix to the URL entered into the web part’s “Target List” setting.

Example:
http://Intranet/Helpdesk/Lists/Tickets/anon
Sirish  
8/9/2012 01:10 
Thanks for this great web part.
How can we edit the email body ? Once I submit the form I'm getting an email but looks like the email looks like a paragraph. There is no separation between the columns. Is there any way we can give a space between the columns ?
Juerg  
8/9/2012 12:58 
Sirish,
if you define your custom mail template via the web part's "E-Mail Template" setting, please make sure to add HTML <br/> line breaks to the template for each line.
Dave K  
8/9/2012 16:44 
Juerg,
When I add the /anon postfix to the URL, I reveive an error detailing: Form List Error: List 'anon' does not exist at site with URL...
Please advise.

this is currently not possible but we could add this feature in the next release if it is important for you.

Juerg  
8/21/2012 13:28 
Adam,
the „Quick Form“ web part actually does not use a cache.
Did you configure the web part to use the SMTP outbound server (as opposed to the internal Sharepoint SMTP mail utility) as follows:

Jon Antalvari  
8/29/2012 19:37 
I was wondering if I'm wondering if you've thought about the possibility of using cascading lookups? For instance, if I select US in the country field, the city field would only contains US cities. Possibly, even taking that to a third level. This question was asked in the User Comments, but I did not see an answer.
Kirri  
9/10/2012 08:46 
This Web Part is infinitely useful. However, I've noticed it's not possible to get fields in the Form to write into 'Person or Group' fields in the List - could this be enabled? To facilitate this, it would be good to have a people picker on the form, so users can choose the correct person.
Darryl  
9/13/2012 18:02 
Hi Juerg - we have a couple of requests from our users that I haven't been able to deliver. Is this functionality in the form, or can it be added in upcoming versions?

1. Dynamic (expanding) content - so, I could have a radio button for "do you want a drink with that?". If the user chooses, "no", the continue as usual, but if they choose "yes", the form expands to give them drink options.

2. Another approach (less ideal but workable) for this would be to have conditional page redirects on exit: if field1=no then page= xxxxx.aspx, if field1=yes then yyyyyy.aspx

Thanks!

Hi Juerg,
I have multiple file upload fields on one of my form and I also created a List with the same fields. I can open the attachments from the file upload field in the email that I receive, but I cannot open the attachments from the List that I created. The attachment are in the list and I can see them, but when I click on them I get only a square with a red X inside, like the image is not stored anywhere. I was wondering if I am doing something wrong. Thank You!
Juerg  
9/19/2012 11:07 
Paula,
we have now fixed the problem regarding the attachments if you both send the form to a mail recipient and a Sharepoint List.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP filea and then update the solution.
Kirri  
10/3/2012 00:54

Kirri,
the date picker should work as usual in version 1.0.57 (we both checked with SP2007 and SP2010).
Abbas  
10/13/2012 10:13 
Hi juerg,
I have some problem in this very useful web part:

1- How can I set the "lookup" field input type, to contain values from a column of a Sharepoint List that isn't defined in the same site? I want to select some values from some sharepoint lists in another sub sites.
Is there a way to Set a value from a list in another sub site? and defining its addres? Syntax: L[LookupList,LookupColumn,,,/Sites/site1]? Like:
SenderDepartment=L[Deps,Title,,0,/EN] would show depatment names from that list.

2- And also is there a way to Set a value from our content types?
I like This web part very much and its just what I've been needing.

Many thanks, Abbas
Andy  
10/17/2012 11:35 
More lookup based questions. Is there any way this can be based on a view of a list?
Juerg  
10/17/2012 15:34 
Andy,
yes, please append the View name to the List name, separated by a colon.

Example:
Color=L[ColorList:ViewName,ColorName]
Christy  
10/19/2012 17:48 
I'm trying to have a field in my form (ticket number) display in the Subject of the email when the form is sent. I have tried putting {ticket number} in the subject but the email is sent with exactly that in the subject and not the ticket number from the form. Any suggestions on how this is done?
Juerg  
10/19/2012 19:20 
Christy,
to be able to use a field label placeholder in the e-mail subject, please use the web part's "E-Mail Template" setting since the default e-mail formatting does not support placeholders in the subject line.
Juerg  
10/24/2012 16:17 
Abbas,
you can actually specify a List contained in another site of the same site collection by using the following syntax:

L[Sitename/Listname,Columnname]

We also recently added the option to specify the content type when saving the form data to a Sharepoint List by specifying the “ContentType” form field:

Examples:
My Content Type|ContentType=D[Item,Link,Announcement]
ContentType=S[Announcement]

The first example shows how the user can interactively choose the content type (and also how you can specify a friendly form label) and the second example show how the content type is set in the background (not visible on the form).
Sam  
10/25/2012 19:31 
Loving this product so far. The one issue I am having is enabling the user to enter additional email addresses for the form to be sent to. I created a field Email:T20 and thought that I could use either {Email} or qs:Email in the Recipient CC field based on their use in other fields. Neither is working, in either the Recipient or Recipient CC fields. Am I missing something or is this not working properly?
Juerg  
10/26/2012 11:35 
Sam,
both the „Recipient E-Mail Cc:“ and the „Recipient E-Mail Bcc:“ fields currently only support the {usermail} placeholder, but do not allow to refer to any form fields.

However, the “Recipient E-Mail” setting allows this (including Lookup fields) and also allows to specify multiple recipients (separated by semicolons):

{Email1};{Email2}

Please send us a note if you need to be able to use the field placeholders also in the Cc: and Bcc: fields.
Abbas  
10/27/2012 17:06 
Hi juerg,
thank you for your nice recent support. I have 2 questions:

1- How can I set the "lookup" field input type, to contain values from a site column? Is it possible?

2- Please help me for using the parameters of your example in setting the "lookup" field input type, to contain valuse from content types. I mean the following example:
My Content Type|ContentType=D[Item,Link,Announcement]
(Please help me to use it for setting the lookup fields with Site columns & content types).

Many thanks, Abbas
Sam  
10/30/2012 15:14 
Juerg, thanks for the clarification. For some reason it was not working even in the Recipient field earlier, but it is working now. Maybe I had something wrong.

Also, are you aware of problems with the rich text editor widget? When I first tried to use it, I got errors indicating that something could not be found and it would not let me save the page. I tried again later to capture the error message to report here, but it didn't re-occur and the page saved ok. However, I could not click in the text box and I could no longer edit the page in IE 9. I switched to Chrome and it did let me edit the page there to remove the field, but the rich text widgets did not appear.
Juerg  
10/30/2012 16:06 
Sam,
can you send us the content of the web part’s “Field Template” setting for analysis ?
Also, are you using SP 2010 or SP2007/WSS3.0 ?
Sam  
11/1/2012 13:58 
Just completed testing validators & default values ... great features!

Question: Is there a way to provide a default value for a Lookup field?
Juerg  
11/1/2012 16:33 
Sam,
this is currently not possible. Would this option be important to you ?
Sam  
11/2/2012 14:11 
Juerg, it is not a requirement for our decision to purchase this, but it would be nice to have. What could be just as helpful is knowing how the order of what is listed is determined so that we might have the 'default' at the top of the list.
Juerg  
11/2/2012 14:29 
Sam,
you actually can create a view for your Lookup list to be able to define your custom sort order and the specify your view in the Lookup form field definition:

Example:
Country=L[CountryList:MyViewName,Title]

(ie. append the optional List View name to the List name, prefixed by a colon).
Sam  
11/2/2012 14:46 
Awesome! I think that will satisfy our needs.

Recommendation: note this in the documentation above :)
Steve  
11/2/2012 17:46 
Hi Juerg,

I'm having the same issue that Kirri mentioned on 10/3/2012. We are using MOSS 2007 and recently upgraded to 1.0.57. The date picker no longer works for us. Clicking on the calendar icon doesnt do anything. Dates typed into the field appear as 12/31/9999 when the form is submitted.

Scratch what I said about 12/31/9999. I havent been able to reproduce that, but the date picker is definitely not appearing when I click the icon.
Juerg  
11/2/2012 18:09 
Steve,
the problem is most probably caused by the date field’s label containing a blank character (as for example “Requested Date”) which breaks the date picker in SP 2007.
We fixed this problem on October 11 with version 1.0.58, so you might consider to update the web part (or change the label to say “Requested_Date”).

HI Juerg,
We want to create a form for assining some tasks to our members. Is it possible to have a field that works like a "User lookup field" or "Users picker"?
Thanks and regards,

Hi Juerg;
Thanks for your kindly suppoert. The version in this page is still 1.0.61, but you created a new version with the new „A“ People Picker form field type (V1.0.62).
I used a list lookup field that connect to a list with more than 700 Items. It's difficult to chose an item with this field. Is there any way to work this field type as an "Auto complete field" in the form?
Thanks and regards;
Abbas
Juerg  
11/19/2012 13:39 
Abbas,
we have now added the new "A" People Picker form field type to the “Quick Form” web part.

Usage:
Assigned To=A250
AssignedTo=A250/m

where 250 in the example above is the desired width of the control in pixels and the optional "/m" parameter allows to select multiple users.
Please re-download the Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Hello,
For the 'Page Redirection' can i use xxx URL query string parameter={xxx}.
this is just to return to my previous page.
thks
Juerg  
11/28/2012 14:39 
Cyril,
it is possible to embed a form field placeholder in the web part’s “Page Redirection” setting as for example:

/thankyou.aspx?email={email}

but I assume that you rather would like to be able to dynamically inject an URL query string parameter into the “Page Redirection” URL.
Cyril  
11/28/2012 14:58 
Hi Juerg .
Yes,
i try to use this:
MY page url with the form:
/Pages/Partager-Information.aspx?pagetitre=petroplus&shareurl=http://ServerUrl/medias/Pages/Article2.aspx

Form Template:
*Nom|Nom complet=T30;*Envoyer à|=T50|email;*Titre de la page|=T50;Commentaires|Commentaires=M60/5;Source=S[{shareurl}]

Page redirection:
/Pages/redirect.aspx?returnurl={Source}

but it's don't work {Source} is empty ?
Can i help me?
Juerg  
11/28/2012 16:30 
Cyril,
we updated the web part so that the Redirection URL now also accepts the value of a “Static” field.
Furthermore, you can now directly inject an URL parameter into the Redirection URL without having to use a static form field:

Example:
Page URL:
/Pages/Partager-Information.aspx?pagetitre=petroplus&shareurl=http://ServerUrl/medias/Pages/Article2.aspx

“Page Redirection” setting :
/Pages/redirect.aspx?returnurl={shareurl}

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Hello Juerg,

I see some amazing things happening with the lookup field.
But question: Can you add the option to filter the lookup values with CAML making use of the URL query string parameter?

Kind regards,
Mario
Juerg  
12/10/2012 15:03 
Mario,
it would actually be quite complex to set up a dynamic CAML query for the lookup form field but we could add the option to dynamically specify the Lookup List name and the Lookup View name via an URL query string parameter.

Is it possible to capture the information from this data to a sharepoint list? It looks like a great way to build like an online order form, if the fields can be mapped and captured to a sharepoint list. Is there any limitation for the number of fields?
Juerg  
12/17/2012 19:54 
Bob,
the Quick Form web part allows you to save the form data in a Sharepoint List via the "Target List" web part setting (please see description at tthe top of this page).
Also, the web part currently supports up to 99 fields per form.
Juli  
1/8/2013 16:34 
I love this. Is it possible to have a text input field and then set it up so an end user can automatically add a second one if needed?

Example: I have set this up to report an unused bulletin number. The only thing that is necessary for the user to enter is the ATB number. It is possible however that they might need to enter more than one and rather than them having to submit multiple messages, It would be great if there was a way that they could click a button or something to insert a new instance of the field.
Juerg  
1/8/2013 18:14 
Juli,
this is currently not possible (and also would be rather complex to implement).
If you just send the form by e-mail (as opposed to saving the ATB number into a Sharepoint List) you might consider to add one or more extra text fields and maybe add some explanatory text to the form.
Pete  
1/9/2013 18:14 
Juerg,
Great web part. Is it possible to pass the value of the {today} preset placeholder through static text to a SharePoint list? I'd like to capture the date that the form was submitted in the list.
Juerg  
1/9/2013 18:21 
Pete,
each List actually sports a „Created“ column which is automatically set when a list item is created.
Please send us a note if you think that a {today} placeholder still would be useful.
Pete  
1/9/2013 18:25 
'Created' works. Didn't think of that. Thanks for the quick response!
Thomas  
1/23/2013 22:13 
When I use the lookup field with a calculated column the dropdown shows "string;#" before every item in the list. Any way to just show the contents of the column? It works fine for non-calculated fields.

Hi. Is it possible for enhanced rish text to be incorporated in the form? Thanks
Juerg  
1/24/2013 10:02 
Cathy,
yes, to create a multiline rich text field, please use the “M” field option in your “Form Template” (please see documentation at the top of this page).

Mxx/yy/r: Multi-line rich text input field
where xx is the number of columns and yy is the number of rows

Example: Comment=M50/8/r
Juerg  
1/24/2013 10:54 
Thomas,
we have now fixed the problem with Lookup fields referring to a calculated column.
Please re-download the updated Zip, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Juerg  
1/25/2013 14:07 
Cathy,
we have now added support for „enhanced rich text“ as follows by using the new “/e” option.

Example:
Enter your text=M60/4/e

Is it possible to have the user that created the new item show as both created by and modified by fields? Thanks!
Juerg  
1/30/2013 18:42

Hi, we are currently using the web part to capture user ideas. The user enters his name, surname, idea ect and the information is pushed to a sharepoint list. The user gets a "thank you for your suggestion" message once they submit. Is it possible to pull the unique ID from the list that the users info is being pushed to once they click submit in order to show in the "thank you message"?, or if not can a unique reference number be rendered on each submission for the "thank you" message?. Thanks
Juerg  
2/18/2013 16:31 
Gresh,
we have now added the new {id} placeholder which can be embedded in the web part’s “Completion Message” setting.

Example:
Thank you for your submission. You reference number is {id}

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Gresh  
2/20/2013 11:29 
Hi Juerg

The updated version is 1.0.75?. On submission the completion message only shows the {id} placeholder and does not pick up the ID form the list. Should a field be created for id?, Thanks
Emily  
3/13/2013 20:22 
Is it possible for the end user to determine who receives the “recipient email”. For instance, Field= Manager (John Doe): Recipient email= Manager (johndoe@domain.com).
Juerg  
3/14/2013 16:56 
Gresh,
yes, the update version is 1.0.75
Did you embed the {id} into the web part’s “Completion Message” setting as shown in the below example:

The unique ID is {id}

which should produce:

Dear John Doe,
your message has been sent. Thank you.
The unique ID is 47
Juerg  
3/14/2013 17:01 
Emily,
you can for example create a dropdown form field to let the users select the person to receive the e-mail:

Example:
SendTo=L[Employees,Firstname,Email]

The above example assumes that you have a Sharepoint List named “Employees” that both has a “Firstname” and an “Email” column (specifying two columns allows you to display a friendly name in the dropdown box and transmit the e-mail address behind the scenes):


You then also have to enter the form field name into the web part’s “Recipient E-Mail” etting (enclosed in curly braces):

Example:
SBudaj  
3/18/2013 21:17 
We are looking to use the Quick Form as an input screen for our IT support tickets. Is there the ability to have a placeholder for the IP address of the computer and another for the computer name.
SBudaj  
3/18/2013 21:53 
I am using the People Picker field to allow users to select their name instead of typing it into the prompt. I am saving the form information to a list and the user name appears as

0;#i:0#.w|fmcmain\scollins

However within the e-mail confirmation the user name is display correctly.
Juerg  
3/19/2013 13:58 
SBuday,
we have now added the new option to add the “{ip}” and “{host}” placeholders to the “S” static form field (which is not displayed on the form but included in the e-mail and also saved to the target Sharepoint list).

Examples:
IP=S[{ip}];
Computer=S[{host}];

The “{host}” placeholder returns the client computer name and the "{ip}" placeholder returns the client IP address.

Juerg  
4/10/2013 19:21 
Matteo,
you also might consider to add a “Verification” text field and specify a custom validation rule in form of a regular expression (see below in green).

Example:
The user is forced to enter a 10 digit number.
The rule to allow for exactly 10 numeric digits is:

*Verification=T10|custom:^[0-9]{10}$|please enter a 10 digit number;

Hello,
I've been using this web part all over our site for different forms however I'm noticing that it is slow to respond once a user clicks submit. Is there an issue to having multiple forms on the site. I don't think the are all used at the same time because we are a small organization however the slowness is troubling.
Bill Dewey  
5/8/2013 21:03 
Just downloaded and installed for testing, very nice. A couple of questions.

1. can the "qs" (Query String) parameter be used to pre-populate any field on the form? I see the note for recipient, is this generic?

2. On validations, any chance of having the webpart allow a regular expression with a custom error for field validation?

We use some technology for field validations that does this, but I am guessing that if we use your web part as the input to this list, the field validations will not occur.

Thanks!
Erick  
5/9/2013 08:54 
Hello, Any updates on a sandboxed version of the webpart (sharepoint 2010)?
Juerg  
5/9/2013 13:00 
Bill,
we have now added a new option to let you specify a querystring parameter as a preset for a text field by adding the querystring parameter surrounded by curly braces, prefixed by a colon:

Example:
First Name=T30:{firstname}

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Regular Expression Field Validation:
You can specify a custom validation rule in the form of a regular expression by using the following syntax ( “|custom:” followed by the regular expression and an optional custom error message):

field definition|custom:regular expression|error message

Example:
Student ID=T10|custom:^[0-9]{10}$|please enter a 10 digit number;

the above example allow for exactly 10 numeric digits.

Hi Juerg. Is it possible to use Allow 'Fill-in' choices with the Checkbox feature. I am trying to find a way to include an "Other" checkbox where the user can specify the Other and have that populate the target list. Thanks!
Doris

Also, to upload multiple attachments, is the best/only way to include multiple =U50 lines? Thanks!
Doris  
5/9/2013 21:08 
Two last questions for today!
1) If the completion message is displayed at the top, is it possible to have the page display from the top after the submission. It refreshes back to the bottom where the submit button is.Or maybe I'll just keep the message at the bottom. :)
2) Is it possible to change the style of some/all of the labels? Make larger, bold, etc.? Or is that a Sharepoint CSS style sheet thing?
Thanks!
Juerg  
5/10/2013 13:23 
Doris,

"Fill-In" Choices:
yes, just add a text field below the checkbox field and point it to the same List column.

Example Form Template:
Color=C[red,green,blue];Other|Color=T20;

Both fields in the above example point to the same “Color” List field and the “Other” textbox automatically only takes precedence if no checkbox has been checked (see screenshot below).

Multiple Upload fields:
yes, you can just add more than one „U“ upload form field.

Form Template:
Upload1=U40;Upload1=U40;etc.

Page Refresh position:
this can currently not be influenced (we’ll look into this)

Field Label style:
Yes, please just use the web part’s “Field Label CSS Style” setting to style your form labels.

Example:
font:10pt Segoe UI;font-weight:bold

Eric L  
5/10/2013 22:20 
Is it possible to send a conformation email to the person who submitted the form and then send a different email to different people that contains the same submitted information but worded differently.

Email 1: The information below has been submitted, someone will contact you shortly....

Email 2: "username here", submitted the following information: Please contact them.
Juerg  
5/14/2013 16:57 
Erick,
we decided to not publish a sandboxed version due to the many technical limitations of the Sharepoint Office365/Sandbox environment (no e-mails, no date-time and rich-text controls etc.) which would severly cripple the Quick Form web part when used in the sandbox.

Juerg  
7/4/2013 16:01 
Sam,
you can actually save an already configured web part as a .webpart file via the web part’s “Export..” option:


You might first have to set the web part’s “Export Mode” to “Export all data”:


You then can save the file, rename it to, say “FeedbackForm.webpart” and upload it to the site collection’s “Web Part Gallery”. It now can be add to any page.

Juerg

Dan,

There is no easy way to debug this.
You might however consider to use the option to force the web part to use the SMTP outbound server (as opposed to the internal Sharepoint SMTP mail utility).
To set the switch, please append /SMTP to the web part’s “Sender E-Mail” setting.

you can specify a custom validation rule in the form of a regular expression by using the following syntax ( “|custom:” followed by the regular expression and an optional custom error message):

field definition|custom:regular expression|error message

Example:
Description=M30/4|custom:^[0-9]{120}$|please enter no more than 120 characters

the above example allows for a maximum of 120 characters to be entered into the multiline field.

Hello!

I have created a 2 part form using the quick form web part. When part 1 of the form is submitted, the data is saved to the target list and at that time a request # is assigned. Is there a way to reference the request # in the second part of the form so when submitted that data is saved in the same target list, but with the applicable request#?

Right now when the second portion is submitted it is saved as if it is another request/record.

Thanksin advance for your assistance and make it a great day!

Juerg  
8/14/2013 12:32 
Umeeke,
you might add a List Lookup form field to the second Quick Form web part which looks up the most recent request # from your target list by creating a list view that is sorted by “ID” (descending) and is restricted to show only one item (the most recent added item). The Lookup field would then automatically contain the most recent request #.
This however is not transaction-safe since if two users submit the form at exactly the same time, there is a chance that the second form gets the wroung request #.
Dan Neuman  
8/28/2013 20:48 
Back on 7/9, I reported a inconsistency with emails not being received when the form is submitted. After further investigation, I have discovered a pattern. If the End-user puts a double-quote in one of the fields, the email is never received. I am using version 1.0.39. Can you let me know how to resolve this?
Juerg  
9/3/2013 12:31 
Dan,
do you mean that if one of the form fields (for example a text field) contains a double quote character (entered by the user filling out the form) , then the e-mail will never get received ?
Thomas Babcock  
9/4/2013 00:39 
I have a unique problem.

I am trying to use the form to send in a ticket into a helpdesk system. If I use the custom email template I am able to put some special lines in the email to auto-configure the ticket parameters like status, submitter, due date.

The problems is that the e-mail template field on Sharepoint strips out all carriage returns and the helpdesk strips out all the html codes in the email, including the <br/> tags used to separate the lines. I just get a big blob of text in the resulting ticket.

I don't have this problem if I use the default email as it send it with carriage returns separating the lines as well as the html codes. Using the default email removes the ability to auto-configure the tickets.

Is there any way to have the email template not remove carriage returns?
Juerg  
9/6/2013 18:41 
Thomas,
we have now added the new option to embed line breaks in the web part’s “E-Mail Template” setting using the “¬” character.

Example:
Market Budget:{Markget Budget}¬
Market Manager: {Market Manager}¬
Event:{Event}¬
Expected Cost:{Expected Cost}¬¬
Comments:{Comments}/plaintext

You also might need to set the “/plaintext” mail option (see above in red) to create a plain text mail body (as opposed to an HTML mail body).

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Problem is, after the user submits the form, the user's name in the people picker still displays. How can I configure it so that the people picker field is cleared after the user submits the form? Thanks so much!

Can we:
1. Populate a Lookup field via url string parameter? ( I forgot)
2. Hide the Lookup field?

Kind regards,
Mario
Juerg  
9/26/2013 19:22 
Mario,
both options do currently not exist.
Which Lookup parameter would you like to be able to pass in via an URL parameter ?

When using the Quick Form is it still necessary to have a default DispForm.aspx?
Juerg  
10/17/2013 14:58 
Umeeke,
what exactly are you trying to achieve ?
Takis  
10/23/2013 15:43 
Is it possible to add if/else logic to this web form? For instance, I would like my users to choose (radio button) A or B and have the form present the user with a different set of input fields for A and for B.

Example:

Is your question answered?

If yes -> do nothing
If no -> present textarea field for user input
Juerg  
10/23/2013 18:58 
Takis,
this is unfortunately currently not possible.
Katie

How do I add explanatory text. not bold. disclosure type text giving the user direction on what is needed to be filled out.
Juerg  
10/29/2013 12:52 
Katie,
just place the text into the „Form Template“ setting at the desired position (separated by semicolons from the form fields above and below the text).

Example:
Last Name =T20; Comment =M50/5;Thank you for requesting training. We will confirm your booking within the next 3 working days.

You also can embed HMTL tags to format your text.

Hi, just started using this web part with SP2010 server. Is there any way to link a drop down input field to an existing managed metadata set?
Thanks

Juerg  
11/7/2013 18:38 
Ian,
the Quick Form web part currently does not support Managed Metadata fields since we want to keep the web part compatible both with Sharepoint Server and Sharepoint Foundation (which lacks the term store feature).
Niki

Hello. How can I configure the e-mail template to use the names from a people picker field as the email recipients?
Juerg  
11/19/2013 15:28 
Niki,
this is currently not possible but we could proceed to add this option if this would be an important feature for you.
Russ  
11/21/2013 12:28 
is there anyway of adding an extra space between the field label and text box that follows it in the vertical layout?

other than that - great webpart...
Juerg  
11/21/2013 15:57 
Russ,
please use the below CSS style to create some extra vertical space between the labels and the form fields:

.aeformstyle label {line-height:20pt}

You can add the stype either to your Sharepoint CSS style sheet or directly enter it into the web part’s “Form Template” setting as follows:

<style>
   .aeformstyle label {line-height:20pt}
</style>
;Name=T30;Phone=T20;..
Niki  
11/21/2013 19:04 
When using the people picker option, I've noticed that the Active Directory browser window does not launch when that field begins with a number. For example: 'Name=A250' will launch a browser window. '1. Name=A250' will not launch a browser window. Is there a way around this? I've tried using '1) Name=A250' and '1 Name=A250' but neither work.
Juerg  
11/26/2013 13:52 
Niki,
we have now added the option to use a People Picker form field for the recipient e-mail.
We also have fixed the problem with the decimal point in when using a people picker field.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Russ

Hi Juerg,

great webpart, but i was wondering if it was possible to make a pick list a mandatory field? i have added the 0 to give ita blank first field but wondered if i could enforce a seclection? i have added a * but this didnt work...

Also are there any plans to add any more place holders? i would love to see things like workphone, and title, compnay etc?

Thanks again for all your support

Juerg  
12/15/2013 17:18 
Russ,
the dropdown form field actually supports the „mandatory” option, but it interprets the blank first value as a valid entry, so we will be going to fix this issue in the web part’s next release.
The Text input field currently also supports the following placeholders:

{firstname}
{lastname}
{workphone}

These values are taken from the Sharepoint User Information List, which also contains the “Title”, “Department”, “Office” and “Job Title” fields, but not a “Company” field.
Alexis  
12/19/2013 20:48 
Hi Juerg,
Is there a way to split the form to use both 1 and 2 columns. I have 3 sections of information for a user complete. In the first section of the form I'd like everything in 1 column (full width of the webpart), the middle section would be two columns and the third section of information would be back to 1 column (stretch full width).
I've used the # & div tags to create the 2 column look i, but it does justify the entire form as if it were 2 columns instead of full width of the webpart where there is only 1 column of information.

Thanks - this is a fabulous tool all around
Juerg  
12/20/2013 19:49 
Alexis,
to keep the next field on the same line, prefix it with a ~ tilde character.

Example:
Name=T40;
Workphone=T20;~Cellphone=T20;
City=T40


The above example renders the Name in a single column, the next two fields in two columns and the last field again in a single column.
Roberta Freese

Hi,

We are looking for a form to email that will let us prefill default text fields using the query string parameter, something like

ourpage.aspx?parameter1=value1&parameter2=value2 for example.

It looks like the qs: does not work in the field template, and trying to use it put the web part into a state where it had to be removed via maintenance mode.

Is this something possible for a feature? As long as we set validation on the fields to be posted, we think we should be protected from "bad" data getting through.
Dustin  
1/28/2014 01:58 
Have you been able to get the workflows on the target list to start with an anonymous user posting to the form? We need this feature.
Juerg  
1/28/2014 19:47 
Roberta,
you actually can preset text fields with default values from the page URL as follows:

SomeField=T20:{parameter1}

where “parameter1” is the name of the querystring parameter passed in via the page URL.
(eg. append the name of the querystring parameter enclosed in curly braces).
Juerg  
1/30/2014 10:27 
Dustin,
are you using the form on an authenticated site ?
If yes, you can use the /uid switch (to be appended to the web part’s “Target List” setting) which uses the logged-in user account to create the List entry. This ensures that the workflow is properly started as expected.
Please note that the users now need “contribute” permissions on the target List.

Example:
http://spserver.com/someSite/Lists/someList/uid

If you need the feature to work without the user needing the contribute permissions to submit to the list, you can specify a specific user (one who has permission to write to the List) for impersonation when saving the form data to a Sharepoint List.

Please append the User ID of the user to be impersonated to the “Target List” setting as follows (example):

http://spserver.com/someSite/Lists/SomeList/uid=27

You can look up the user ID’s by navigation to the Sharepoint User Information List located at /_catalogs/users/simple.aspx

Hi there Juerg

In regards to specifying a custom validation rule

I have tried:

Your complaint=M60/8|custom:^[0-9]{400}$|please enter no more than 400 characters;

The Message does comes up, but the user can still keep typing..
How can I restrict the amount of text being typed in..Any way to fix this?

Many thanks!
Juerg  
2/6/2014 13:10 
Dan,
we recently added (with release 1.0.104) the new „Mcc/rr/maxlength” option that allows you to specify the maximum number of characters to be entered into a multiline textbox.

Example:
Comment=M80/5/100

The above example limits the number of characters that can be entered to 100.
Dan  
2/11/2014 08:35 
Hi there Juerg

Thank you for that, as our version of the webpart is 1.0.79 would the same license key be valid for release version 1.0.104?

thanks.

Dan  
2/11/2014 08:53 
Sorry, also what is the process to updating from version 1.0.79 to 1.0.104

cheers
Juerg  
2/11/2014 15:24 
Dan,
yes, you will be able to use your existing license key.
Please update the solution (after placing new wsp file in the c:\ root folder using the following Sharepoint PowerShell cmdlet (run as admin):

Update-SPSolution –Identity AEFormWebpart.wsp –LiteralPath c:\AEFormWebpart.wsp -GACDeployment
Dan  
2/13/2014 04:34 
Thanks Juerg! All is working

Also, how do we put a static field to display a message? (maximum charactor statement)

Thanks again
Juerg  
2/13/2014 15:57 
Dan,
you can insert text lines as follows (by sandwiching the text into the appropriate spot):

Example:
Title=D[Mr.,Mrs.];First Name=T30;Request=M30/4;(please enter no more than 200 characters);<br>;E-Mail=T50|email;

Niki  
2/14/2014 17:34 
We are using a query string parameter to pre-populate fields within the form. Is there a way to make those fields 'read-only' to prevent the user from editing them?
Juerg  
2/16/2014 19:09 
Niki,
the option to specify a text field to be “read-only” works as follows by appending “|readonly” to the field definition:

Example:
Name=T30:{SomeURLparameter}|readonly
Karsten Svenningsen

High I have evaluated Sharepoint Quick Form Web Part, and it works fine when I am logged in, but not with anonymous access. Is it because its not licensed? I need it to write to a list
Juerg  
4/8/2014 15:14 
Karsten,
to allow the web part to submit data to a Sharepoint List “anonymously” please configure it by adding the /anon postfix to the URL entered into the web part’s “Target List” setting.

Example:
http://Intranet/Helpdesk/Lists/Tickets/anon
TKO  
5/20/2014 19:45 
Excellent web part, Juerg. Any update on adding a CAPTCHA option to the Quick Form? We would really like to cut down on the number of spam submissions. Adding a required numeric field as you suggested only cut down a small number...not very successful.
Juerg  
5/20/2014 19:59 
TKO,
we added the “Captcha” form field in March 2014 with version 1.0.113:


Please add the “V” Captcha control to the form as follows:

Example 1 (using the default settings):
Captcha=V5

Example 2:
Captcha=V5,bgcolor=silver,fgcolor=black,size=12,height=25,width=100,font=Verdana

where
- 5 is the number of characters to be displayed
- bgcolor is the box color
- fgcolor is the character font color
- size is the font size
- height is the box height in pixels
- width is the box width in pixels
- font is the character font family

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Hi,

I am trying to use the enhanced text field, but I cannot get the formatting menus to appear like shown in the examples. All I get is what looks like a plain text box with "Click for help about adding HTML formatting." under the box.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Form Template
Suggestion Title=T60;Suggestion=M61/15/e;
Matthew  
5/23/2014 06:18 
Ok, I think i have worked out that it works in IE but not chrome, how do I get it to work in chrome?
Matthew  
5/23/2014 06:36 
Sorry, one more question... can this web part use the Built in editor options from the SharePoint 2013 ribbon?
Juerg  
5/23/2014 10:59 
Matthew,
the Sharepoint Rich Text editor option indeed is only available for Internet Explorer. We'll see if we can integrate the Sharepoint 2013 format ribbon in a future version.
Matthew  
5/28/2014 05:55 
Hi,
Computer=S[{host}] seems to give me the ip address only, can anyone confirm it is working for them?
Juerg  
5/28/2014 09:56 
Matthew,
we recently added an option to explicitly enable this feature since a DNS lookup to retrieve the host name might take a few seconds depending on the network.
Please enable the option by entering the below into the web part’s “Options” setting:

DnsLookup=1

Is there a way to make the E-mails being sent out by a form 'Urgent' or 'High Priority'?
Juerg  
6/10/2014 17:43 
Chase,
we have now added the new „priority=high” option (to be entered into the web part’s “Options” setting) to send the message with high priority.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Is it possible to add an image to the e-mail template?
Juerg  
6/19/2014 19:53 

Niki,
you can images to the e-mail template, but you then will also need to add the below HTML to embed the image in the body of the message (otherwise it is sent as a mail attachment):

Example:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd>
<html>
<head>
   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
</head>
<body>
  <H2>Greetings!</H2>
  {Your Message}<br/>
  <img src="your image url">
</body>
</html>

Is there a way to specify the maximum number of characters that can be entered into a Text Box similar to the "Mcc/rr/maxlength” for the Multiline textbox?
Juerg  
7/4/2014 12:14 
Carlo,
to restrict the number of characters that can be entered to the size of the text box, please append an exclamation mark postfix to the form field.

Example:
Name=T30!
Carlo  
7/4/2014 15:47 
This works great! Thanks!

Thanks a lot for your quick answer!
The reason why i asked this question is: When i´m trying to use multiple people picker fields a strange problem occurs. After saving the changes, i can no longer edit the webpart or the site. Only way to fix this, is to delete the site and create a new one.

7/9/2014 13:16 
Is there a way to set a limit for the number of checkboxes a user can tick in a form? For example from a list of 4 checkboxes a user can only tick a maximum of 3. Is this possible?
Juerg  
7/9/2014 16:46 
Carlo,
the most recent version now allows to add JavaScript to implement custom behavior.

To limit a checkbox array to a maximum of 3 checkboxes that are simultaneously checked, please add the below JavaScript to the web part's "Options" setting:

jquery=1|javascript=$("#c2 :checkbox").click(function() {
if($("#c2 :checkbox:checked").length >= 3) {
$("#c2 :checkbox:not(:checked)").prop("disabled", "disabled");
} else {
$("#c2 :checkbox").prop("disabled", "");
}
});



The JavaScript refers to the checkbox form field via the “#c2” ID. Each form field has its ID, which is numbered according to the position of the field within the form.
The above example assumes that the checkbox field is the third field in the form (numbering starts with “0”).

Please also include the jQuery library (if it is not already included via your master page) by adding the below to the web part’s “Options” setting:

jquery=1

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Juerg  
7/9/2014 19:15 
SBI,
we have never observed this problem before. Which Sharepoint version are you using ?
Can you also check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
KY  
7/15/2014 07:26 
Juerg,
Really an amazing web part you have. Is there anyway we can disable one of the choices within the radio button options?
We are making use of this form for our users to select a suitable time for themselves to attend our training session. When a certain number of users have already chosen a particular slot, we want to show grey out this choice and inform users that this slot is fully booked.
Juerg  
7/15/2014 14:33 
KY,
we have now added the new "^" option to disable a radio button or a checkbox.

Example: Sex=R[male,^female]

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
KY  
7/16/2014 04:18

I'm using a dropdown form field to let the users select the person to receive the e-mail. My code is

Recipients=L[EmailRecipients,Subject,E-Mail]

My question is, how do I add the Subject field from my list to the Mail Subject message in the web part's settings?
Huseyin  
7/24/2014 15:52 
Sorry, me again.

Is there a way to pre populate a dropdown menu using a url parameter? In the case of my previous message, I'd like to be able to specify the subject dropdown field using a link.

Is this possible?

Many thanks for a great web part.
Juerg  
7/24/2014 19:23 
Huseyn,
although the dropdown field displays the "Subject" field, it only transmits the "EmailRecipients" field.
You thus will need to create a new calculated column (name it say "MailAndSubject") which combines the two fields by using the below formula:

=[EmailRecipients] & "~subject=" & [Subject]

Please then replace the "EmailRecipients" field in the Form Template with the name of your new calculated column and also enter the new "{lookup}" token into the web part's "Mail Subject" setting (this token refers to the "Subject" part of your calculated field).

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

To pre-select a Lookup form field with a specific value, append the below to the Lookup field definition in the "Form Template":

SendTo=L[Listname,DisplayColumn,MailAndSubject]:{sender};

where "sender" would be your URL parameter name and the value of the URL parameter should be the List item ID of the value to be pre-selected.

Carlo  
8/21/2014 09:44 
Hi,

Is there a way to have a dropdown list which then populates another dropdown list depending on which selection is chosen in the first one?

We would like to implement something similar to eliminate long drop down lists by grouping selections together and using two lists instead.

Thanks

9/8/2014 17:42 
Hi Juerg - I'm trying to include the form submitter's name in the email notification subject line. I've read a couple of comments about that but my subject line simply gives me exactly what I put in the configuration field and does not replace the curly brackets with the data. I've tried both of the following in the Mail Subject configuration box:
Suggestion from {First name}
Suggestion from {username}

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?
Juerg  
9/8/2014 18:20 
Kelli,
we have now added the option to use the {uid} and {username} tokens also in the e-mail subject.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Darryl  
9/16/2014 18:41 
Juerg, we have this working on our site and sending an email as expected, but the captcha code does not display - we just see "Captcha=V5" displayed at the bottom of the form.

It's currently on an internal (secure) site but will be published into a non-secure public zone as well. Any ideas? Could it be firewall-related?
Juerg  
9/17/2014 17:10 
Darryl,
can you quickly check the web part’s version number by opening the web part’s tool pane and looking it up at the top ?
The “Captcha” form field option was added with version 1.0.113 in March 2014.

Is there a way to carry the value from one of the form fields to the Recipient E-Mail Cc: line?
I am using this as an EMEA Corporate Card request form for our employees. One of my form fields is "Direct Manager email address" and once the end user completes the form, we would like a copy of this to be sent to the email address they enter into this field.
Juerg  
9/25/2014 18:49

yes, just put the label of your form field containing the e-mail address (enclosed in curly braces) into the web part’s “Recipient E-Mail Cc:” setting.

the "/top" option should actually work fine. Can you leave and then re-enter the page and then submit the form to check ?
Also, the web part does not need a "reset" button, since the form is automatically cleared after submission.

When populating the form to a sharepoint list, the requestor name appears like this: 300;#i:0#.w. with the users name attached (using people picker). Is there anyway to modify this so that only the user name will appear in the sharepoint list.
Juerg  
10/16/2014 17:05 
Brenda,
the form field labels are also centered when the web part's "Center" option is selected due to a bug which you can fix by entering the below into the web part's "Options" setting:

Juerg  
10/16/2014 19:46

the web part actually expects the target column to be of type "Person or Group" (as opposed to "single line of text"). Please indicate if you need the column to be a text column.
Brenda  
10/16/2014 20:23 
I deleted the field from my list and re-created using using person/group. It works; however, I am using the list to do a lookup and the field does not show when creating a lookup for another SharePoint list.

I am looking to setup a form that allows users to select items from an unsponsored items charitable list in sharepoint. Once the form is submitted, I want to update the charitable list with the sponsor info so that it doesnt appear for the next user (note: it would be good to throw a validation error if the record was already sponsored during the entry time window). Is this functionality something that your tool could do out of the box?

Is there a way to get an extra line between labels. My form is left adjust. Also, it seems as if the labels are not close enough to the text boxes. Any suggestions.

Frank,
the Quick Form web part currentl yonly supports adding new items to a List, but not updating existing items.
Juerg  
10/17/2014 18:39 
Brenda,

regarding the "css=" option:
please enter it into the web part's "Options" setting.

regarding the line spacing between labels:
you can adjust the row size via the "aeformrow" CSS class as for example:
css=.aeformrow {height:40px}

regarding the space between the labels and the input fields:
can you send us a screen shot to support@amrein.com ?

regarding the text size for option buttons:
you can adjust the row size via the below CSS selector as for example:
css=.ms-input TR TD LABEL {font-size:18px}

Hi, is there any possibility to add a feature like Attaching a file and send it the recipient ? Any one
Juerg  
10/24/2014 13:21 
Rahim,
the web part actually already supports file attachments.
You just need to add an field of type “U”:

Unn: File Upload field
where nn is the width (expressed in characters) of the field.
The uploaded file will be sent as an attachment and/or added to the List item as a List item attachment.

Example: Name=U30

First, I'd like to thank you for the amazing development of this tool. I've been using it for a few years and thoroughly enjoy the tool.

Second, is it possible to capture the current data/time and pass it as a field or placeholder? Usually, I would write an item to an SP List and use the Created data/time. However, for this initiative, I cannot use the Created field from an SP List.
Juerg  
10/30/2014 11:39 
Brian,
will you need to populate a List field of type "Date and Time", a list field of type "Single line of text" or just send it via e-mail ?
Brian  
10/30/2014 14:41 
Juerg,
Actually, I was going to pass the data using query string parameters by dynamicaly building a URL using the form's redirect option. Feel free to email me if you want to have a discussion offline.

Cross Site Collection "Created and Modified" by incorrect. We found that when our Target List was in another Site Collection the Created by and Modified fields are incorrect, in one case they both ended up empty. What a very thorough reading of ALL the comments, and I thank everyone for them, I ran into the /uid on the end of the target list, which interesting fixes the Cross Site Collection problem. I am suggesting that this is important enough that you should call this out in the Documentation section at the top of the page, specifically referring to the creation of cross-site-collection lists, which is a HUGE help if fixing one of the most annoying things in SharePoint. Glad I found it, even though it was not in reference to our specific problem. Just a Heads Up to all.
Bill Dewey  
11/7/2014 16:54 
We are also having a problem with populating fields from the User Profile, such as {jobtitle} and {department}. Neither will populate, they just show as the exact text "{jobtitle}".

This is the template for one form where this is occurring:
"*Name=T30:{firstname} {lastname};*Phone=T20:{workphone};*Department=T30:{department};*Job Title=T30:{job title};*Office=T30:{office};*Full Name=T30:{username}; Email=T50:{usermail}"

Any ideas? And should we be able to populate any item from the User Profile? In the case of "{jobtitle}" I looked at our Profile list and I see that the "Job Title" field is mapped to {title}, so I also tried {title} as well as {Job Title}, none of them worked.

On a side question, I saw the reference to look at the Profiles using the _catalog link, is there a way to actually display the ID on the last, or just to find it by examining the URL for each user? This is what let me see how the mapping was happening in my prior post.

Thanks,
Bill Dewey

Forgot to note, we are using Version 1.0.89.
Juerg  
11/7/2014 18:35 
Bill,
the user profile tokens were added with version 1.0.117 in March 2013 (the current version is 1.0.137).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Bill Dewey  
11/7/2014 23:21 
Can the Target List be variable? We have a situation where based upon a list we would like to add the entry to one of a number of lists, each of which is configured the same. The ideal situation would be if we could get the Target List from a field in our lookup table.

Thanks,
Bill Dewey  
11/7/2014 23:46 
One more on using the Form to work across Site Collections. Is there a way to utilize a list from another Site Collection for a Lookup? Ideally we would like to get one piece of information on the Form that could then be used in the name of the Lookup List.

Thanks,
Juerg  
11/14/2014 19:33 
Bill,
regarding the variable Target List URL:
is it correct that the user would choose a value from a dropdown form field which would then be used as the Target List URL ?

regarding Lookups across site collections:
this is currently not possible. You can specify a site within the current site collection, but not another site collection.
Would this be an important feature for you ?

Hi Juerg

Can Quick Form be used to only write data to a list and not to email?
Juerg  
12/2/2014 15:41

yes, in this case just leave the web part's "Recipient E-Mail" setting empty.

Hi Juerg,

Are you able to do any simple calculations (sum totals) on any of the form fields. My current form I am building includes budget information and would possibly like to do a sum total in a form field?

Thanks.
Juerg  
12/4/2014 11:18 
Henry,
this problem was fixed with version 1.0136, thus please re-download the current version (1.0.138) , extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Bill Dewey  
12/11/2014 17:02 
Sorry for the late reply. On the Target List URL, that is what would be useful. Ideally the dropdown would contain a "friendly" name, and a second field could be used which contains the URL to insert into the Target List field.

Having the ability to use a Lookup across site collections would allow us to have, for example, one list of User Directory information located at the root of our site and then be able to use that single list in any of our site collections, rather than having to replicate the list for each site collection.

One other question. Is it possible to have a Dropdown or Lookup utilize the choices from a Choice field in the list? Or is the only way to accomplish this to have a separate Lookup list with the choices?

Thanks, this web part is suddenly being used all over our Portal.

What a fantastic Web Part! We are having trouble using Financial amounts (like 00,000 or $25,000) in selections for checkboxes or radio buttons without the code trying to separate the number at the comma (thus making it two selections). Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a work around to keep a financial amount showing accurately without omitting the comma? (we want to make sure our users don't get lost in counting zeros - big difference in selecting 10,000 or 10,000,000).
Juerg  
1/13/2015 19:34 
Terri,
when using a checkbox you can escape the comma by entering two commas.

Example:
Amount=C[100,,000,150,,000,200,,000]

Please note that the radio buttons do not yet support this escape mechanism, but we’ll be adding it to the web part’s next release.
Terri  
1/13/2015 20:33 
Juerg- The double commas worked perfectly!! Thanks so much for your assistance.
Zach  
1/15/2015 18:46 
Great web part! I'm currently using an image as the Submit button. Is there a way to use CSS to place the image on the bottom left of the form, instead of the default bottom right? Thanks!
Juerg  
1/15/2015 20:20 
Zach,
to left-align the "Submit" button, please enter the below into the web part's "Options" setting:

css=.aeformbutton {text-align:left}
Darryl  
1/20/2015 17:35 
Juerg, we have a problem with the captcha code when we use the form on multiple pages in our website.

Imagine page A and page B both have the form webpart (with captcha enabled). The user completes a form on page A and then goes to page B. The captcha code shown on page B is identical to the one on page A, but when the user enters the text as it appears, the form shows an error that the characters don't match (even if they're identical to what's shown on screen).

We've discovered that the user has to refresh the second page to have the captcha code "updated" to display the actual code it's testing against.

It's quite confusing for users to enter the captcha characters exactly but have an error say that it's incorrect, and I expect very few of them would realize that they need to refresh the page (and re-enter all of their form information) to make it work.

You can try it on these pages, if you want (please just clearly indicate that it's a technical test so the people monitoring the inboxes are aware):

http://www.cbe.ab.ca/get-involved/request-to-share-information-with-schools/Pages/request-to-share-information-with-schools.aspx

http://www.cbe.ab.ca/about-us/contact-us/Pages/feedback.aspx

Any suggestions to fix? Thanks!
Juerg  
1/23/2015 18:45 
Darryl,
this is a known issue and you thus might rather use the Google “reCaptcha” form control.

Please add the new “G” Google ReCaptcha control to the form as follows:

Label=GTheme,PublicKey,Privatekey,ErrorMessage

where
• Theme is one of the 4 avaialble themes (see https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/docs/customization)
• PublicKey is your public key (see https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create )
• PrivateKey is your private key
• ErrorMessage is the customized message if the user enters the wrong text (default: “No match - please re-enter the characters!”)

Example:
Captcha=Gclean, 6LdNke8SAAAAAHHdXwF489Bo9zRRSwC_tMWpaIxp,6LdNke8SAAAAALZ5BbnXjIF9zlvUz8GCmbnCKinT,Please re-enter!

I have used this part for several forms and our business groups love it! I have run into an issue with some testers entering too much text in fields like comments or description (well beyond the amount I've set when using Comments=T100 or Description=M100/4 ); the email stretches accross the page and eventually cuts off the end characters. Our Compliance team wants to use this webpart for a form but are concerned they will not get all the info in the email if the text fields are not a 'fixed' length. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help. -Terri

1/26/2015 18:24 
I have a group who likes the format of the form so well they want it in the email! Is there a way to keep the format of the form in the email or to attach the form as a PDF? Thanks for your help!
Juerg  
1/27/2015 14:20 
Terri,
this is only indirectly possible by using the web part’s “E-Mail Template” setting to manually create an HTML based template that mimics the form as displayed on the page.

To limit the number of characters that can be entered into a “T” textbox, please append an exclamation mark as shown in the below example:

Comment=T30!

to limit the number of characters that can be entered into an “M” multi –line textbox, please append the max. number of characters as shown in the below example:

Comment=M50/4/100

(the above example limits the number of characters to 100).

Nice tool!

Question on the e-mail functionality. I created a field in my form called E-Mail, but when the Form is emailed to me it does not come from that email address? Can that be done? Thank you

In the e-mail template, I cannot BOLD my headings since I have them broken into sections for a New Hire Form. I am able to use the <B><B/> commands in the Form template, but not in the E-Mail temp. When I add <B><B/> in the e-mail temp, its will bold the entire form, not the text inside <B>text<B/>. Can this be done? Thank you
Juerg

can you send both the "Form Template" and the "E-Mail Template" settings to support@amrein.com ?
Ryan

I am creating a web form and need to validate the total amount of a number of fields.
Example:- We have a total of 100 (entered in a field by user) students and user needs to divide them in different categories ex: travelling by mini van, by foot, by car etc.. The validation needs to be that the total amounts listed in the fields add up to the total amount of students listed initially.
Juerg  
2/12/2015 18:02 
Ryan,
you would need to add this validation using JavaScript or jQuery.
Below is an example of adding a jQuery script to the web part:

To limit a checkbox array to a maximum of 3 checkboxes that are simultaneously checked, please enter the below JavaScript into the web part's "Options" setting:

jquery=1|javascript=$("#c2 :checkbox").click(function() {

    if($("#c2 :checkbox:checked").length >= 3) {

        $("#c2 :checkbox:not(:checked)").prop("disabled", "disabled");

    } else {

        $("#c2 :checkbox").prop("disabled", "");

    }

});



The JavaScript refers to the checkbox form field via the “#c2” ID. Each form field has its ID, which is numbered according to the position of the field within the form.
The above example assumes that the checkbox field is the third field in the form (numbering starts with “0”).
Please also include the jQuery library (if it is not already included via your master page) by adding the below to the web part’s “Options” setting:

jquery=1
Terri

Hi Juerg- We have been using this webpart for a while now and it seems the configurations are endless! I have been given a request that has me stumped and I hope you are able to help.

Some users hit 'enter' as they are filling out the form and this inadvertantly submits the form (half completed). Is there a way to force the form to only be submitted by clicking the 'submit' button?

Thanks for your help.
Andrew

Just a note to those people using the E-Mail Template feature.

I was using reasonably complex HTML and CSS to generate a telephone message. When I started adding the form fields I was finding that the HTML was breaking further down the page. This ultimately turned out to be rendering errors introduced by the Sharepoint 2013 mail engine. Once I changed to the /SMTP switch, all the errors went away.
Mo A.  
3/20/2015 15:02 
I want to personalize the email a bit by saying “Thank you Juerg….” So I have the following as a hidden field in the form:

But it does not seem to work. It works only when I use
First Name=T30:{firstname};
Juerg  
3/22/2015 16:16 
Mo A.
we have now added the option to directoly embed user related tokens in the web part's "E-Mail Template" setting.

I have a drop down list and it wraps on two lines. I tried to append a length i.e. Category=D150[Category Here...]. This did now work. I want the drop down list to expand to accommodate the category with the largest number of characters. On this project, I would like to fit 60 characters.
Mo A.  
3/26/2015 13:08 
I figured this one out. I had a comma in my text which I beleive is interepeted as a break between drop down items.
Juerg  
4/1/2015 20:51 
Terri,
we have now added the new “submitbehavior=1” option (to be entered into the web part’s “Options” setting) to disable the “Enter” key:

Hi, We are having a problem with the E-Mail notifications received after setting the E-Mail Template. We have quite a bit of text in the template with the form fields listed afterwords. After a number of characters (752) we get '! ' displayed in the email text. (For example: E-mail Adress: r! evision@test.com). Are you aware of this issue and if there is a way to avoid this?

Also when we set Checkboxes and Radio Buttons to be displayed horizontally using the /3 tag we get these cluttered and not nicely spaced like they are in the examples that we see in this page. Is there a way to space these so they look nicer?
Juerg  
4/2/2015 18:14

would it be possible to send us the content of your web part’s “Form Template” and “E-Mail Template” settings to allow us to replicate the issues ?

Hi,
I am currently using a people picker in my quick form, however after submitting the form this field is not clearing (the remaining fields are).
Is there a way to clear this, I can redirect to the same page but this instantly clears the thankyou message?

Also if there is an error on the people picker (e.g. the person is not found) the form still submits anyway.
Is there a way to stop this?
Thanks

I am using a lookup field to allow the user to make a selection. Based on that selection the Send To email address is changed which is working beautifully. I want to include the selected display name in the email body. I tried following the post from 7/24/2014, and I don't understand what you are recommending and how the webpart is splitting the values apart.

- My Form template field is: Suggestion Type=L[Email-Wiki-Form,DisplayValue,Email]
- My Recipient E-Mail field is: {Suggestion Type}
- How do I display the "DisplayValue" from the {Suggestion Type} field in the E-Mail Template field?
Juerg  
4/30/2015 13:46 
Dan,
we have now changed the web part’s behavior to always use the “Display Value” of a lookup form field in the “E-Mail Template” setting.

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Juerg  
4/30/2015 13:47 
Ian,
we fixed this problem with version 1.0.116 on March 12 2014.

Hello Juerg - this form works great writing to a SharePoint list but I have a requirement to write to external SQL table. Is this feature available in this product? If not, is something you're considering. It will really be a great add on.
Juerg  
5/16/2015 15:58 
Mo,
we actually have the "SQL Edit" web part (see /apps/page.asp?Q=5753) which also allows you to add a new record to a SQL database table.
To use it in standalone mode, please enter the below into the web part's "Options" setting:

addnew=2
TKO  
5/20/2015 18:48 
Quick question about submitting once...does the "/once" configuration still use browser cookie and prevent repeat submission on the same computer?

Is there a possible way to integrate the "/once" to look at whether the form is using anonymous submit ("/anon"; uses cookies to track submission) or authenticated submit ("/uid"; uses username to track submission)?
Juerg  
5/22/2015 11:19 
TKO,
yes, the „/once“ option to allow the user to submit the form only once is based on a browser cookie. To track the users that have submitted the form, the web part would need to maintain a Sharepoint list and we will consider to add this the web part’s next release.
Frank  
6/1/2015 16:57 
Hi Juerg,

is it also possible to compare two fields with each other and generate some kind of error if their inserted value is not the same?

We are trying to use two masked password fields, where the user should type the password twice. In case of a misspelling, we would like to display some kind of error.

Is there anything planned like this for the future?
Juerg  
6/7/2015 17:56 
Frank,
you can use the below option to create a confirmation field.

Example:
Password=T60;
Please retype=T60|=Password;


ie. please add the “|=” match validator, followed by the label of the field to be compared.
Frank  
6/12/2015 14:28 
Thank you, Juerg,

just one more question. Is it also possible to determine a minimum amount of characters that need to be entered?

We are using a password field and are wondering about that.

Juerg  
6/14/2015 17:57 
Frank,
yes, please enter the below custom input validation field (by using a regular expression):

Password=T20|custom:.{8,}|please enter at least 8 characters;

the above example requires the field to contain at least 8 characters.

Juerg

Eric,
the most recent version (1.0.154) supports the „postbackurl=target URL“ option (to be entered into the web part’s “Options” setting) to post the form data to another page as shown in the below example:

Hi, I'm trying to add a field for user to enter the other email address - say, "Managers Email". So once the all details are field and when the user clicks submit, the email template should also be sent to the Managers email id. I've tried putting {Manager} placeholder in recipients email. Doesn't seems to be working. Can you help
Juerg  
7/7/2015 15:31 
Arpan,
to send the e-mail to an e-mail address as entered into one of the form fields by the users, please enter the field label of the field containing the e-mail address into the "Recipient E-Mail" web part setting, enclosed in curly braces.
In your case please enter

If yes, can you explain what exactly does not work when using the web part ?
Juerg  
7/21/2015 12:22

This form web part is great and our company has been utilizing it a lot within our internal communication intranet! In one situation, we are using this form to submit new project requests, which are getting populated into a list for further review and approval. Is it possible to have a separate form that users can select their line item from the master list so they can make revisions (rather than having them go directly to the list to make the revisions?) We are wanting to use a form so an email can be generated when the revision is submitted.
Juerg  
7/28/2015 19:48 
Niki,
for this we would need to enhance the “Quick Form” web part so that it would allow for a dropdown box to select a specific list item and then update the underlying list item (as opposed to create a new list item).

Hi Juerg!
Is there a way to validate a duplicate field? For example, if we have an "email" field and then have a "confirm email" field, is there a way to ensure that the two entries match? Thank you!
Juerg  
8/14/2015 15:37 
Monica,
you can use the below option to create a confirmation field.

Example:
Email=T60;
Please retype=T60|=Email;

ie. please add the “|=” match validator, followed by the label of the field to be compared.

This is a fabulous webpart. I had a question about a previous post, you mention:

We have now added the new option to optionally specify a second Lookup List column name as follows (per your suggestion):

L[LookupList,LookupColumn,LookupTransmitColumn]

I am trying to pull a column from a lookup list, but I would also like to pull the associated columns data and populate my list with it.

For example I have a lookup list that has a has few columns and I would like to pull that into my list. Column1=School, Column2=Address, Column3=Phone. I want the user to pick the school, and then it to also write into my list the associated address and phone number for that school.

Currently I have School=L[SchoolLookupList, School, Address,,0] This results in the user being allowed to pick the school, but then fills the form out with the address.

Is this possible?
Juerg  
8/27/2015 16:11 
Sharon,
please note that the web part’s “Lookup” form field is able to display one list column, but transmit another list column
but it is not able to transmit a concatenated value created by concatenating the values from two (or more) columns.
However, you could create a “calculated” column in your Lookup list which concatenates the “Address” and the “Phone” fields and then specify this column in the web part.

The formula to be used in the calculated column would be

=[Address] & " " & [Phone]

Hi, I have created a form and wondered if there was a way that individuals who are filling in the form could input an email address and it is sent to them. As this is used by multiple people and needs to be able to go to multiple people i am unable to insert a 'generic' email address in the 'recipient e-mail/ box. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks,
Leanne
Juerg  
9/2/2015 16:46 
Leanne,
you can add a Text field as shown below and then enter the label of the field (enclosed in curly braces) into the web part’s “Recipient E-Mail” setting as shown in the below example:

{Email}

How can i put the validation?
Juerg  
9/3/2015 18:57 
Kiran,

Field Input Validation:
You can append one of the following keywords (separated by the | pipe character) to the form field to validate the data entered into the field by the user:

email checks for a valid e-mail address
numeric checks for a positive numeric value
name checks for a valid name
zip checks for a valid US ZIP code
phone checks for a valid  US phone number
date checks for a valid date
ssn checks for a valid US social security number
url checks for a valid URL
Example: *E-Mail Address=T50|email

We are using this webpart to create a subscriber list for a blog. We would also like to use another instance as an unsubscribe. There are only 3 fields in the associated list, email address, status and subscribe date.

I was hoping that in the second instance it would see the email address already existing and update the status field to inactive rather than active.

Is this something we can do?

Juli  
9/18/2015 14:19 
We would like to set the {url} placeholder to equal the static value of the unsubscribe page in our form. Is it possible to display the URL as a friendly name rather than the entire link.

Example: To unsubscribe from ARRIS Travel News, click here

Where 'here' would be the link to the unsubscribe page
Juerg  
9/18/2015 15:39 
Juli,
you can embed HTML into the form as shown in the below example where a hyperlink is embedded:

To unsubscibe, please click <a href="/somesite/somepage.aspx}">here..</a>;other form fields..

Please note that the “{url}” placeholder is of no use here (it simply refers to the current page).

Great Webpart!! How can I specify the size of the text in a dropdown? The default is a little small for our users to read.

Thanks

Juerg  
9/25/2015 15:01 
Hassab,
to increase the font size of the dropdown boxes, please enter then below into the web part’s “Options” setting:

Juerg  
10/20/2015 13:21 
CC,
please note that you currently can't use the „|url“ field input validator if the URL contains any URL parameters.
We will be fixing this issue in the web part’s next version.

the web part actually supports the „usermail“ placeholder and also allows to enter multiple recipients (using the semicolon as a the separator).

Hello,

we are trying to localize the error Messages of this Webpart. We followed the instructions of your post from 12/19/2011 13:26, where you explained to add the locale.txt to a special Directory.

However, we use SharePoint Server 2013. Is it not possible get the localization of error messages working with SharePoint 2013?

Best regards
Juerg  
10/30/2015 18:50 
Richard,
we have now fixed this isse, eg. the web part now expects the "Locale.txt" file in the "15" hive for SP 2013 at

c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\AEFormWebpart

Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

I am using the people picker type field in my form. It’s a mandatory field and defaults to the users name.

*User Name=A305:{uid};

When the form is submitted, it submits and displays the completed message but it does not default back to users name again. It clears the username and then displays an error message “You must specify a value for this required field”.

Is there a way for this field to reset to the default value once it submits and still display the completion message?
Juerg  
11/27/2015 13:06

we have now fixed this issue (eg. preset people picker fields flgged as mandatory will not be cleared anymore after the form has been submitted.
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.

Hi,

i have a question regarding the translation of the error messages:

You mentioned where to place the translated files in your post from 12/19/2011 13:26. However, you did not mention SP 2013.

Does this solution also work for SP 2013? We don't seem to be able to get the translated error Messages for SP 2013 working.

Thank you for any Information on this.

I just updated to version 1.1.4 from 1.0.96. When I try to use CAPTCHA, I get the below error when trying to add it to the form "Captcha Field Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.". How do I fix the reference, so I can use the CAPTCHA feature?
Juerg  
12/5/2015 20:26 
Adam,
the web part solution contains a few additional components relating to the Captcha control, so you will need to update the web part as explained below:

Please download the web part and then update the solution (after extracting and then placing the WSP file in the c:\ root folder of the Sharepoint web front end server using the following Sharepoint PowerShell cmdlet (run as admin):

Update-SPSolution –Identity AEFormWebpart.wsp –LiteralPath c:\AEFormWebpart.wsp -GACDeployment

Can emails be sent based on conditional statements from a checkbox field such as using if/then?
Here is example: Checkbox has 4 choices, if first option is chosen email goes to employee A, if second option is chosen email goes to employee B, if third option is chosen email goes to both employee A and B.
Alexis

Hi Juerg,
Can you tell me if the placeholders - specifically {usermail} pull from the iConnect profile or from Active Directory, or is this something that is set at the top-site level?
Juerg  
12/11/2015 18:58 
Alexis,
the placeholders refer to the user data maintained by Sharepoint.
When a user is added , Sharepoint gets the user data from the Active Directory and stores it in the top site’s “User Information List”.

Juerg

the date format used by the date picker form control is governed by the site’s regional settings (eg. the “Locale” setting).

Hi,
I am trying to create a form that allows the user to input their individual email address so the form only goes back to themselves rather than anybody else, however the email address in question isnt recognised in the sharepoint, they have been granted access via their name due to IT issues. Therefore i cannot use {usermail}. Is there an option for someone to freely input their email address on the form and the form be submitted there?
I hope this makes sense,
Thanks
Juerg  
12/17/2015 17:53 
Leanne,
in this case you need to add a text form field to have the users enter their mail address manually and then also enter the field’s label into the web part’s “Recipient E-Mail” setting, enclosed in curly braces.

Example:
{My E-Mail}

(assuming that the form field label is “My E-Mail”)
Juerg  
12/20/2015 18:13 
Adam,
we have now added support to specify multiple mail recipients in the checkbox form field as shown in the below example:

SomeLabel=C[userA@amrein.com¦Label A,userB@amrein.com¦Label B,userA@amrein.com+userB@amrein.com¦Label C];

(eg. separate multiple e-mail addresses using the plus sign).
Please re-download the updated Zip file, extract the WSP file and then update the web part solution.
Leanne

Hi,

Is it possible, if you were to select something from a list of choices, that it automatically populates some options in a second list of selections? Thanks,
Leanne
Juerg  
12/30/2015 18:29 
Leanne,
the web part currently does not support „cascaded“ dropdown boxes.
However, you might use some JavaScript to implement this behavior as shown in the below example:

Specify a Javascript function for the “onchange” event of a dropdown form field which for example allows you to hide or show a specific section of the form.
As an example, the JavaScript code to hide a specific form field in the form looks like shown below:

function toggle(args)
{
  if (args.value == "Germany") {
    document.getElementById('d2').style.display = 'none';
  }
  else {
    document.getElementById('d2').style.display = 'block';
  }
}

The above code toggles the form field having the ID “d2” between visible and “hidden” (please see below regarding the ID’s).

Please place the above code into the web part’s “Options” setting, prefixed by “javascript=
Please also change the “master” dropdown form field in the web part’s “Form Template” as shown below:

Country=D[Spain,Germany,etc.]onchange:toggle(this);

eg. append “onchange:toggle(this)” to the “D” form field (“Country” in the above example).
Please note that each row in the form now sports an ID (“t5” in the above example).
The ID is composed of the form type (“t” for text, “x” for static text, “a” for People picker, “m” for multiline text, “d” for dropdown, “r” for radio etc.) and a number which refers to the n-th form element (starting with “0”):


Maybe it’s best if you inspect the form using the browser’s developer tool to look up your form field’s ID.

Hi Juerg! Is it possible to have validation on multiple items within a form for ranking? We have a user who will be sending out a survey asking customers to rank items in order of importance from 1-8, and we want to be able to mandate that their selections are not duplicated (so they can't rank multiple items as 1)
Juerg  
1/6/2016 19:53 
Niki,
you could add a JavaScript to the web part (it allows you to specify JavaScript via the "javascript" option).
However, the script would be quite complex since it would have to scan all 8 text fields for a duplicate entry whenever the user enters a value into a field and pop up a message saying that the value is already in use.

Niki  
1/30/2016 02:53 
Hi Juerg - another question. Is it possible to create a trigger as to whether an email is generated or not? I have a list of 'approvers' that need to receive an email, but only if the user requests it by clicking on a check box (or a drop down) whichever works best.
Juerg  
2/1/2016 17:17 
Niki,
you can embed HTML tags in the email template, so you can for example add a link as follows:

<a href="http://somedomain/somesite/somepage.aspx">Click here to approve</a>

I have some text that is part of this webpart and I want to style the text only without affecting the field.

This is my template:

Report Unused ATB Number;ATB Number=T30;Unused=S[yes]

I want to style the font for just the text portion: Report Unused ATB Number without affecting the text size or color in the ATB Number field.

I tried to do this using the form CSS style but it changed the text characteristics for the text being entered into the field and I don't want that.

How can I style just the text and not the label or the field text?
Juerg  
2/10/2016 19:53 
Juli,
we recommend to place the text to be formatted within a “<span>”, “<div>” or “<p>” HTML tag, assign it a CSS class name and then defining the class style via the web part’s “Options” setting as illustrated below:

Field Template:
<p class=FormTitle>Report Unused ATB Number</p>;ATB Number=T30;Unused=S[yes]

Options:
css=.FormTitle {font:12pt Segoe UI;color:white}

Juerg  
3/1/2016 12:19 
Jan,
please use „1“ (yes) and „0“ instead of „Yes” and “No” (also rather use a radio button field as opposed to a checkbox field):

Calculatie=R[1¦Yes,0¦No]

The above example transmits “1” and “0”, but displays “Yes” and “No”

Do you still not have a solution for Office 365? Is this no longer planned? Or is this still in the works for some point in the future?
Juerg  
3/2/2016 14:08 
Timothy,
custom web parts deployed to Office365 are not allowed to send out e-mails.
We thus currently have a pre-release version for Office365 which can save the form data to a Sharepoint list (but not send it as an e-mail).

I defined five different fields which must be presented on the same line (Calculatie=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;MKK=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;Monster=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;Modelwijziging=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;Tekening=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2). Using the ~ sign doesn't work, and when I use the # sign the next field starts at the fifth column. What is the right way to do this?
Juerg  
3/3/2016 14:13 
Jan,
you can use the “~” prefix and then also choose “vertical” for the “Form Label Layout” setting:


Calculatie=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;~MKK=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;~Monster=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;~Modelwijziging=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2;~Tekening=R[1¦Ja,!0¦Nee]/2

Juerg  
3/10/2016 19:19

do you mean that you would want to be able to specify which one of the 4 options should be selected when the radio button is set to “Ja” (so for example you would like to set the 3rd option in this case) ?

i.e. http://my-target-url.com?field1=Yes&field2=hello
Juerg  
4/17/2016 15:49

you can actually embed the form field values in the target URL by enclosing the form field names to be added to the URL in curly braces as shown in the below example:

http://my-target-url.com?field1={Married}&field2={Department}

Can this web part be used anonymously? For instance, on a public web set, can we allow this form to have required fields, an anonymous use fills it out, the complete message has the link to the download and after submitting, it sends that data to a sharepoint list? Or will that still require enabling Anonymous access??
Juerg  
5/18/2016 13:17 
Shawn,
the web part by default allows anonymous users to fill out a form that saves the data into a Sharepoint list (the list entry is actually by default created using the Sharepoint service account).

no, 200 is the current maximum. However, just make sure to not use semicolons (the form field separators) in text-only sections.
For exaxmple use

instead of

Matteo  
5/30/2016 16:55 
Hello Amrien,

I am using version 1.1.14 of the Quick Forms Webpart. I am having trouble with the Captcha option.

Here is my "Form Template" value
Title=T60;Description=T60;Email=T60;Captcha=V5

I am also saving this to a Sharepoint List

When I run the page, I see the Captcha label and the field to enter the Captcha Value, however I do not see the Captcha image with the text to enter.

I see a “X” where the Captcha value should be. It is displaying just as if the url to the image does not exist.

Since I cannot see the Captcha image with the text to enter, I cannot get off the page.

When I click on the properties of the “X” to get the underlying URL I get
http://intranet.contoso.com/_layouts/AEFormWebpart/AECaptcha.aspx?t=0


I did a view page source and found the following img tag.

<img title="Please enter the code exactly as shown into the text form field" src="/_layouts/AEFormWebpart/AECaptcha.aspx?t=0" style="border-width:0px;vertical-align:top;margin-left:4px" />


Can you take a look.
