    Can you create forms without writing code (HTML, PHP, Javascript, etc.)?

    Asked by Judy Pinney  on March 27, 2015 at 03:16 PM

     

    We’re working on developing a database that will have many hundreds of tables and hundreds forms in the end as will be completely normalized.

     

     

     

    The database will be populated manually (by hand) by data collectors.

     

     

     

    You’re tool looks very interesting and I’ve been asked to understand the following nine items:

     

     

     

    #1 Can you create forms without writing code (HTML, PHP, Javascript, etc.)?

     

     

     

    #2 Can you connect to application database (MS Access OR MS SQL Server on Azure) without code or very little code?

     

     

     

    #3

    Can you navigate between forms without writing code?

     

     

     

    #4

    Can you populate a form with data before the form opens?

     

     

     

    #5

    Can you move fields around on form to put fields on same line?

     

     

     

    #6

    Can you align prompts and fields separately?

     

     

     

    #7

    Have a field type for saving/uploading files (or how might that work)?

     

     

     

    #8

    Do you host the solution or what are the infrastructure requirements?

     

     

     

    #9 What is your pricing model?

     

     

     

    In addition to the answers above, if you have access to documentation of tutorials of anything else that would add color to each of the question above, that would be great.

     

     

     

    Thank you,

     

    Judy
