1. New builder interface: Magezon Core Builder

The biggest change is a completely new form builder interface built based on Magezon Core Builder.

Magezon Core Builder is the one based on which we developed our builder extensions including Magezon Page Builder and Single Product Page Builder.

So the builder interface of BFB 2 now looks like this:

2. 2 new elements with 4 updates

Basically, BFB 2 has all elements that you can find in Blue Form Builder 1 (BFB 1). However, there are some changes as follows:

Element settings: Besides custom options that you can find in BFB 1, there are new options to extend the element’s functionality. The settings popup of an element now looks like this:

Multi page form:

As you know in BFB 1, you have to turn on a toggle button to enable multi page form function. However, in BFB 2, we have a new element called “Pages” that you need to add into the builder section to create a multi page form. Besides, you can flexibly customize top bar style and Next/Previous buttons.

3. Improved performance

In BFB 2, the speed of submitting a form as well as sending email notifications is much faster than that in BFB 1. Therefore, the function Send email after in Email Notifications settings for Admin and Customer no longer exists.

4. Success message

In BFB 2, you can customize not only the content of success message but also its header and footer as well as style, like this:

Note: The Footer Content in success message is related to the function of redirecting customers after submission.

If you open Settings > Advanced, then fill out Redirect on Submit and Redirect X seconds after form submit fields, the footer content will appear in success message on frontend.

Enter [redirect_time] variable in Footer Content field and it will be replaced with the value filled in Redirect X seconds after form submit with redirect countdown.

Enter [redirect_link] variable and it will be replaced with the link filled in Redirect on Submit.

Let’s see how success message looks on frontend:

– Submissions Grid: There is a grid where you can view submissions of a form for specific store views and time period you have chosen. You can export them to CSV or Excel XML. Also, you can filter wanted submissions quickly with advanced filter.

6. Multi-language support

BFB 2 now can support multi-language forms. Specifically, when customers switch between languages on frontend, your form will change its language accordingly.

7. Save form progress

With this new function, users’ form data would be auto-saved as they fill the form. It means the data that users filled in the form would still remain after they refresh the page, and they just need to continue filling out the form instead of filling from scratch.

To enable this function, just navigate to Settings > Advanced and turn on the toggle button Auto Save Form Process.

To have a clearer view on how this function works, please click this link to open a contact form. Type something in some form fields. After a few seconds, refresh the browser; the information would still be here.

8. View submissions on frontend

After submitting the form, customers can view their submission right on frontend by clicking the link in success message. Just insert [track_link] variable in success message in backend like this:

Blue Form Builder 2 Release _ View submission on frontend _ Customize in backend

The [track_link] variable will then be replaced with the link by clicking on which, customers can view their submission on frontend.
