Autodesk Build: Forms Description Column

July 20, 2023 Ramsey Sufian

In today's fast-paced digital world, online forms have become an integral part of our lives. Whether it's for gathering customer feedback, conducting surveys, or collecting data, forms play a crucial role in various aspects of our personal and professional lives. Recognizing the need for improved form management, the latest update to Forms web view introduces the Forms Description Column. This new feature allows you to create descriptive forms by adding a dedicated column to display the form's description. Let's explore how this update can enhance your form-building experience and streamline your data collection process.

What is the Forms Description Column?

The Forms Description Column is a new addition to the Forms web view that provides users with a dedicated space to describe the purpose, context, or instructions related to a specific form. Previously, forms lacked a centralized location to provide additional details or context about the form's content, resulting in potential confusion for respondents. With this update, you can now include a concise and informative description that ensures clarity and improves the user experience.

Why is the Forms Description Column important?

1. Enhanced Communication: The ability to include a description column in your forms promotes better communication with form respondents. By providing clear instructions or context, you can eliminate any potential confusion or ambiguity, allowing respondents to provide accurate and relevant information.

2. Improved User Experience: A well-defined form description enhances the user experience by setting expectations and providing guidance. Respondents will appreciate the clarity and will be more likely to complete the form accurately and efficiently, resulting in higher quality data.

3. Streamlined Data Collection: When forms contain a descriptive column, respondents are less likely to encounter uncertainties, reducing the chances of errors or incomplete submissions. This streamlines the data collection process, saving time and effort for both the respondents and form owners.

The Forms Description Column update brings a significant improvement to the form-building experience. By providing a dedicated space for descriptions, form creators can communicate effectively, set clear expectations, and streamline data collection processes. The enhanced user experience results in improved data quality and overall efficiency for both form respondents and owners.

Make the most out of this new update and leverage the power of descriptive forms. Create well-structured forms with clear instructions to gather accurate and meaningful data. The Forms Description Column is yet another example of how technology continues to evolve to meet our needs for efficient communication and streamlined processes.
