@TRB-monday.com was able to share the following with us on a separate post:
Since Monday will be focusing on Form View this quarter, I figured a compilation of Form feedback would be helpful. The following will be from both my personal Form View usage and other post I’ve see in the community:
-Ability to update pre-existing items. This is probably the most commonly requested feature regarding Forms and I think it’s often on users expect but then learn its not an option. I’m completely unaware of how this could work within the current Form View, and maybe it needs to be a separate but similar view? Item Form?
-Set default options per column. For example dates are currently set to the current date, which as a user pointed out in the above topic, means that a date can be skipped even when “required” with no user input. This would also be helpful for Status, Dropdown etc. At the very least, have a option to default to “blank” so that the user has to select something in the date example.
-Ability to set question order separately from Main Table Column order.
-Conditional Questions. All columns would obviously need to be prebuilt but for example, if Form question 2 is a status column, then set condition to show Column X as next question when Status answer is Y.
-Inclusion of as many other column types as possible. For example: People Columns. I feel like this should be able to function similar to a Status column. In this specific case, maybe its limited to Monday users on the account the form is sent from, or that’s an option that’s set per form.
-Formatting options for Form Field Descriptions.
More Advanced Requests:
-Integration to send webhook on form completion. Could open up some integration possibilities when coupled with the ability to update an item by form.
-Another possible solution to the first request(update item via form) would be the ability to pre-fill fields on a form once sent to user. For example, you could build a webhook integration connected with Integromat that, if you could prefill a form, could fill in a text box with the item ID of the item you want to update. Then if a new item is created, Integromat could use the information based on the item ID to update an existing item and then delete the new one. This would be quite a workaround and probably not ideal for most of the user base but I only mention it in the case that its significantly easier to implement compared to allowing Forms to update pre-existing items.
If anyone else has additional or different features they would like to see on the Form View, please reply here.
