    Asked by Jeanette on November 20, 2013 at 03:22 PM

    Hello Everybody!  It's me again! 
    I know you were wondering what was going on with my updates. Well, I'm back and I got lots of exciting news about JotForm!
    So, here we go!

    SEE OUR LAST 2 AMAZING ADDITIONS !!

    1. JotForm Apps Release with 100 Awesome Apps

    Our developers were really busy working to release 100+ apps. 
    JotForm Apps

    We even had an app competition and those who won are among the best rated ones! Please check our Top Ten Apps here.

    For future JotForm Updates, I'll include a section where I will keep you posted on other apps that can be useful for your specific purposes!


    2. Translation Tool. You can now create a form with a drop-down menu at the top right side which will show the available languages you wish to set for that form. This will help your forms to help you reach a global audience much better!

    NEW FEATURES 

    I. Payment Tools 


    1.Stripe
    The default behavior would select the first address field on your form.
    Users can now select what address to use as the billing address, if they have multiple address fields on the form.
    When 'none' is selected the first address field will be use.





    2. Paypal 
    2.1 . You can now Add a Paypal Transaction ID Number. For example, if your payment field's tag is myProducts, such as shown below, the tag to retrieve the seller transaction ID will be {myProducts:transactionid}.

    You may place this tag anywhere on your form's email alert (yes, even on the subject line).

    Here's a sample result:


    2.2  Pass any form field data to a Paypal transaction (even hidden fields!)
    Say that you handle lots of forms, and you want to know which form the transaction came from on Paypal
    Simply add a hidden field, then on your form's payment module Properties,  select the field from the drop down menu 





    And viola!  You'll get the Custom field's data  at Paypal side!

    II. Date Format
    Chinese Date Format has been added to both DateTime and Birthday Picker






    III. Conditional logics
    Text Condition is now Case Insensitive, no matter the  case, as long as it matches the text





    IV. Manage Multiple Fields: 

    Delete, Duplicate, Require and Unrequire, Multiple fields at once!
    First Open the "File Manager Wizard" 
    All fields can be selected at once, using the button in the bottom left! Large ranges of fields can be selected by holding down the shift button


    Move multiple fields at once to somewhere else in your form?  Not a problem!
    You can manage this from the Field Manager Wizard as well.



    V. Checboxes
    Set Minimum number of selected boxes

    You probably must be aware that CheckBoxes already had the ability to set a maximum selection of options
    Well, you asked, we heard!  You can now set minimum number of selections!





    VI. Uploads
    Images :  Decide to whether show a download prompt or show the images right on your browser

    The default value setting on Upload File buttons is "Yes" to show a download prompt



    At the lower part of the window, Change the option for Download Images to "No"

    By setting this, next time you get an image, a new tab will open for you to view the images rather than getting a download prompt

    Note: Allowed formats to be viewed on the browser are jpg, gif, and png files.
