FormsViewer - Better Browser Forms

Qdabra Software has created an InfoPath Alternative called FormsViewer, the only app that preserves and extends your existing investment.

Why FormsViewer?
  • Migrate your forms in place, i.e. "as is" – no change to templates or data (you can keep InfoPath as an edit option)
  • Enter data more quickly, forms run faster in the browser because we’ve removed the "sending data to server" for form logic
  • Speed up your design process, no more "Publish" required; just drag and drop your templates to SharePoint for rapid testing and deployment
  • ... and so much more!

Are you ready to work for a small company?

Qdabra is seeking a software tester with 4-5 years of test experience. We’re a virtual company and need a candidate who is proactive about communicating status. Your commute is as long as it takes to walk to your computer and we don’t care if you prefer working in pajamas. That’s your business.

  • Re: Make a field "conditional" mandatory??

    Got it! I re-uploaded the form and it fixed that - but then I was getting a validation error even if I filled in the field, but that turned out to be a stupid typo. At any rate, I had never played with validation rules before, so thank you! It fixed my issue.

    Hmm, seems simple enough, but I am missing something. I added the rule "validation" and the condition was the same as those which make that section visible, but I can still save and close the form with that field blank and I get no error.

    That's so odd - that's the message we'd expect to see if you were trying to upload the version you'd been designing, not the published version. So - I'm sure you have made double sure that you are actually browsing to the published file, not the one you were making changes to - but double check that. Then I guess I'd test with...

See attached sample - save locally, right click and select design, then you can preview, etc. Instead of hiding the sections, I've set the background color so you can easily see when the field...
