    Hi Amber,

    Dropdown menus are now located under Single Choice field type.

    As you can see in the screenshot above, in the Settings modal (found in the Gear icon on the field) this is also where you can choose Single Choice Radio Buttons and Check Boxes. Once you add the field, you will be prompted to add choices which will open this setting modal as well. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    No, i mean on the "Create App" button doesn't have any roll over or drop down that gives me the option to make a web form that is shareable.  When I click "create app" I can only make a standard form like before in both the traditional app builder and beta

    Hi Amber,

    Thank you so much for clarifying, my apologies that I misunderstood. Web Forms is an upgrade product that can be added to your account as part of an annual contract. Your account manager will be able to assist you in adding Web Forms to your account. I would be happy to connect with them so they can reach out to you if you would like me to!

    Will the submissions through the Web Form be accessible through your API same as if they were submitted using the Mobile Forms?

    Also, can reference data be used?

    Hi Chris,

    That is a great question however I don't know the answer for sure so I will ask around and get back to you. As for reference data, that is not currently supported but Web Forms is still being iterated upon so this article will be updated when new features and functionalities are added.

    Hi Chris,

    I confirmed that yes, submissions through Web Forms are accessible through the API the same way that Mobile Form submissions are accessible through the API because the submissions work exactly the same way in the backend. A submission is a submission, regardless of the source that it was submitted from. Please let us know if you have any other questions!

    Excited to use webforms! Thank you for these tips. Is it possible to copy a current mobile form into a web form? I have some extensive mobile forms that would be nice to use as web forms without recreating the whole form.

    Hi Jimmy,

    Thanks for your question! At this time, Web Forms is not fully compatible with all the functionality of mobile forms so converting a mobile form into a web form would not fully function the way it is intended. But I will pass along this feedback to the product team as they are interested in how we can continue to iterate on this product!

    Hi. thanks for this exciding addition. 

    just some feedback we got and requests to take in account. 

    1) We received feedback that the font size is a little small, and since the page cannot be zoomed in, it makes it difficult for some people to read. either an option on builder for font sizes or to be able to zoom in the page.

    2) a option to choose if we want to add a character limit (min-max) on fields will add a lot more options and use
