Form Layouts

Intro to Form Layouts

The way you structure your forms can make a big difference in user engagement and data collection efficiency. That's why we offer a variety of form layouts to suit your needs. In this guide, we'll explore our two existing layouts, the Standard Layout and the Multi-step Layout, and give you a sneak peek at our upcoming Block Layout. Learn how to make the most of each layout and select the one that works best for you. 👽

How Layouts Work

Standard Layout (Like Google Forms)
Our Standard Layout provides a straightforward and familiar format, similar to Google Forms. It's great for creating simple forms or surveys. Here's how it works:
  • Start by adding questions one after the other, creating a linear flow.
  • Users progress through the form, answering questions sequentially.
  • Ideal for straightforward data collection with minimal branching or complexity.
Multi-step Layout (Like Typeform)
The Multi-step Layout, inspired by Typeform, is perfect for more complex forms that require a user-friendly, step-by-step approach. Here's how it works:
  • Break your form into multiple sections or steps, making it less overwhelming for users.
  • Each step reveals a portion of the form, keeping users engaged and focused.
  • Ideal for longer forms, surveys, or when you need to create a conversational user experience.
Block Layout (Coming Soon)
We're currently working on the Block Layout, designed to create conversion-oriented forms with minimalist inputs. While it's not available yet, here's a glimpse of what to expect:
  • Create forms that prioritize user conversions with a clean and minimalist design.
  • Focus on essential inputs, reducing digital clutter and friction.
  • Ideal for lead generation forms, sign-ups, and any situation where ease of digital completion is crucial.

Selecting a Layout

Choosing the right layout depends on your specific needs and goals. Here are some considerations to help you decide:
Form Complexity: For simple forms, the Standard Layout is quick and efficient. For complex forms with branching logic, consider the Multi-step Layout.
User Experience: Think about the experience you want to provide. Multi-step Layout can make longer forms feel more manageable, while Standard Layout is straightforward and linear.
Conversion Goals: When Block Layout becomes available, assess whether its minimalist design aligns with your conversion-focused objectives.
By understanding how each layout works and considering your objectives, you can select the layout that suits your project best. We're excited to introduce the Block Layout soon, so stay tuned for even more options to enhance your form-building experience with Formberry! 🫐
