Here it is! We have launched the new 123ContactForm engine. Our previous platform has experienced a complete makeover, in terms of interface, functionality, usability and reliability.
Interface design and structure. The 123ContactForm website is now shiny, colorful and sexy (mostly due to that catchy pink shade). Clear and intuitive navigation provides complete freedom of movement through sections and easy access to options and functions.
Advanced fields. We have created 12 new form fields: Name, Date, Email, Time, Address, Price, Phone, Website, HTML Block, File upload, Google map and Image, that will support your forms in achieving their purposes. All fields can be customized according to your needs and preferences.
Ajax form editor. The real-time form builder gives instant and centralized access to form options and settings. Fields are added with the power of one click, allow for full customization and can be dragged and dropped to rearrange the form layout. The Settings panel comprises, among other features, the e-mail notifications that you can set up for your forms, the rules that you may establish for fields and the applications that can be integrated.
3rd party apps. 123ContactForm can now be linked to various applications: Google Docs, Google Groups, SalesForce, WebHook, Yahoo Groups or MailChimp. You have the possibility of keeping your submissions in Google Docs spreadsheets, sending leads to SalesForce, adding email addresses to your MailChimp mailing list, Google group or Yahoo group and sending your form entries to a custom script on your website with WebHook.
New themes. Predefined themes come in a nice 32 options package. You may customize a predefined theme or create a new one from scratch.
Payments with Authorize.net. 123ContactForm supports a new payment processor, namely Authorize.net. Paypal and Google Checkout are, of course, still available.
With respect to the submission limit that we have introduced for Basic accounts, we want to inform you that the service 123ContactForm provides is a SaaS (Software as a Service) offered on a Freemium basis. The company is financed through paid accounts.
Free accounts allow users to receive all form submissions via email. However, only 100 submissions are available in the online interface. All submissions are saved in our database and, once the account has been upgraded, they will appear in the Submissions section.
We encourage users to upgrade their accounts, in order to sustain the infrastructure costs (servers, bandwith). Besides having all limitations removed, upgraded users benefit from a wide range of functions and options.
That being said, have loads of productive fun experiencing the new 123ContactForm platform.
