Dynamic Form Builder - on the 6th day...

Point-and-Click Dynamic Form Builder - Mobius 6 Beta on the 6th day of Christmas!

Background: Mobius Forms

Mobius is one of many App in the 2sxc App catalog. It's specialty has been creating custom forms. Previous versions required a developer to define the forms, and Mobius would then take care of saving the data and attachment, as well as sending E-Mails to various recipients. now an Interactive Form Builder

Mobius 6 is taking a huge step forward, becoming an interactive, dynamic form builder. It still uses the standard mechanisms of 2sxc to do everything, so the user will instantly feel familiar with the UI. Here's an example hovering over an input field to see that the user can change the configuration or move the field up/down:

Configuration per Field Type

Depending on the field type, the UI changes to show only the settings which are relevant. This leverages the standard Formulas in 2sxc:

Required and Validation

Basic validations are already available as well, and we'll enhance it to provide more sophisticated validations and messages:

Multi-Language by Default 🌍

As always, everything in 2sxc is automatically multi-language by default 😉.

Save Data per Module - Optional ContentType

The data is stored per Module - so if the form is re-used, you can see each module separately. It can also optionally save to a specific content-type, but if you don't have one, it will just save it to a JSON. 

The system can then show the data or export to CSV thanks to new features in 2sxc 17:

In the future, we'll add a tool to better manage the table as well 😉.

Game Changer - Get your Beta Today

We believe that this new functionality should be a game change for many, since there are no good, free, simple form builders out there for Dnn or Oqtane. 

The current version is beta, as we want to improve a few details before making a first final release. But we wanted to share this with the community this Christmas. 

Get Mobius 6 Beta now - and give us feedback and enhancements.

Merry Christmas!
