    This smart widget automatically calculates the driving distance between two locations - providing a pretty nifty estimate of the time it would take if your form users are planning a trip, or basically any reason that requires travel.

    This widget is pretty smart. 

    It allows you to convert a user's answer from a list of radio button options to any text, symbolic or numeric value you want. 

    For instance - If you have a survey form, this widget can automatically assign numeric values to your users' responses. Its use is virtually endless. Give it a try by clicking here


    There are many ways of formatting a number based on the type (currency, percentage, decimal, integer etc), the country or region and the which language the number is being written in. 

    This widget forces a pre-configured format on the value your form users enter. For example, if your form requires a thousand separator, a currency symbol etc, this widget can force this format on the number value the user will enter.

    This is the ideal widget for forms that require the user to reserve dates on a calendar. 

    The widget adds a calendar picker on your form. Any dates picked by a previous form user will not be available for selection. 

    Add the date reservation widget to your form by clicking here


    Do you have a list of dates and times that you would like your form users to choose their availability from? This is the widget you are looking for. 

    The widget keeps track of how many slots you have available for each listed date/time, allowing you to limit how many people can select a certain time slot. 

    We have a live form you can demo - go ahead and give it a run

    This widget is quite useful for any form that is selling a limited number of tickets. The Ticket Purchases Widget allows you to list the types/categories of tickets, and the exact number you have available for each category or type. 

    Every time a ticket is selected, the total number available is reduced until the tickets are sold out.
