    Can I see new form submissions notification in form builder when a folder is collapsed?

    Asked by EngPaired on June 21, 2012 at 06:49 PM

    I am starting to have a collect quite a few different forms. I have them organized into folders so that it is easier to organize them. However, when I collapse a folder I have no way of seeing if there are new submissions in that folder or not. If I have them all expanded it is easy to see which forms have new submissions that may need my attention but then I have to have all the folders open all the time and scroll through all of them. It would be nice if I could have all my folders collapsed and then only open the folder that indicated there were new submissions to find out which form it was.  

    See screen shot for what I mean. On the left the folder is open and it is clear to see that there is a new submission. When the folder is collapsed (right) I can't tell there is a new submission.

    Not a crucial feature, but it would be nice so that I don't have to keep all my folders open to get a quick feel for where my attention is needed.

    We agree that this can be a handy feature. A 'new' hint on the collapse folder toolbar itself can be ideal.

    I will submit a request ticket to our dev team for this, so they can study the feasibility.

    For the meantime, you can also make use of the 'sort' feature in the form builder to quickly sort and display forms with new submissions.


    Thank you for this information. Please inform us again if you have further inquiry.

    Thank you for your quick reply. I had never noticed that option before. I also had not noticed the ability to see only the 'unread' submissions. That will help a good deal.

    I am with you on that. =)

    The form builder alone is feature rich, that it is possible to not have tried some available functionality even after using it for a long time already.

    Glad to be of help. Thanks.
