Some of the top innovations in Adobe Experience Manager Forms include:
|Headless Adaptive Forms||Create and manage Headless Adaptive Forms within the Adobe Experience Manager platform. Enable your developers to create, publish, and manage interactive forms that can be accessed and interacted with through APIs, rather than through a traditional graphical user interface.
These forms are designed to be submitted without the need for a traditional HTML form interface. In other words, they allow you to submit form data programmatically via an API or backend code with and without any visible form elements on the front end.
Headless forms are useful in various scenarios, such as when building single-page applications, progressive web apps, or mobile applications, where a traditional HTML form interface may not be necessary or practical. By allowing developers to submit form data directly through APIs or backend code, headless forms help streamline workflows and improve the overall performance of web applications.
|Core Components||The Adaptive Forms Core Components are a set of 24 open-source, BEM-compliant components that are built on the foundation of the Adobe Experience Manager WCM Core Components. They are specifically designed to be used for creating Adaptive Forms, which are forms that adapt to the device, browser and screen size of the user.
These components can be used to create exceptional data capture and enrollment experiences by providing a wide range of form field options, including text fields, checkboxes, drop-down menus, and more. They also include features like validation, conditional logic, and responsive design, which can be used to create forms that are user-friendly and easy to use.
Additionally, as these components are open-source, developers have the ability to easily customize and extend the components to match the specific needs of their organization. And, These components are built on BEM methodology which ensures that they are scalable and maintainable.
|Microsoft PowerAutomate Connector||AEM Forms Power Automate Connector allows you to integrate Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Forms with Microsoft Power Automate (previously known as Microsoft Flow). Power Automate is a cloud-based service that allows you to create automated workflows between different applications and services.
With AEM Form Power Automate Connector, you can create workflows that automatically trigger based on submission of an Adaptive Form. For example, you could create a workflow that automatically sends an email notification to a specific person when a user submits a form or create a task in Microsoft Planner when a user completes a form.
The AEM Forms Power Automate Connector is a powerful tool that enables you to automate and integrate your Adaptive Forms with other applications and services that connect with Microsoft Power Automate, allowing you to work with a wider range of tools. You can create workflows tailored to your specific needs, with the ability to add custom actions, conditions, and triggers. In addition, Power Automate provides detailed analytics and reporting, allowing you to monitor and optimize your workflows over time.
|Microsoft Storage Connectors||AEM Forms Microsoft Storage Connectors for OneDrive, SharePoint, and Azure Blob Storage are connectors that allow you to integrate Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Forms with Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint. With this connector, you can upload data files and attachments to OneDrive and SharePoint directly from Adaptive Forms.
OneDrive and SharePoint can integrate with other business applications, such as CRM systems, accounting software, and project management tools. This enables you to streamline your business processes, reduce manual data entry, and improve overall efficiency.
|Wizard UI||The Adaptive Forms Wizard UI is a powerful tool for creating adaptive forms quickly and easily. Its user-friendly interface and customization options make it accessible to all users, regardless of their level of technical expertise.
Wizard UI simplifies the process of creating adaptive forms by guiding users step by step through the form creation process. The Wizard-UI is divided into multiple tabs, with each tab clearly providing options to configure an Adaptive Form. A form author progress through the tabs in a linear fashion to select options such as templates, submit actions, and data sources for form components.
The wizard interface streamlines the process of discovering all the essential options for an Adaptive Form and makes form creation easier, even for users who are not familiar with the technology.
|Adobe Analytics with Experience Cloud Setup Automation for Forms
||Form analytics can provide valuable insights into the performance of forms by measuring user engagement, optimizing conversion rates, monitoring form performance, and improving user experience. By tracking user behavior and feedback, analytics can identify areas of the form that are causing frustration or confusion, guiding improvements to the form’s design and functionality.
By using You can enable Adobe Analytics with Experience Cloud Setup Automation with a flip of couple of buttons. It enable you to connect AEM Forms as a Cloud Service with Experience Platform tags and Adobe Analytics to capture and track performance metrics for your published forms.
Forms as a Cloud Service provides an Adobe Analytics report OOTB. It helps you easily understand performance of your forms. The form-level metrics provide you an insight into how the form is performing on multiple key performance indicators (KPIs) like, renditions, visitors, submissions, Average fill time.
It also provides details on average number of times users accessed the in-context help for the fields in the panel to help you ascertain the fields that make users stop and seek information before providing information. You can further simplify such fields or help content to improve conversions.
