Experience Manager Forms as a Cloud Service

New features available in Forms

  • Adaptive Forms wizard: AEM Forms provides business user friendly wizard to quickly author Adaptive Forms. The wizard has a quick tab navigation to easily select pre-configured template, styling, fields, and submission options to create an adaptive form. This release brings following improvements to the wizard:

    • Select or deselect fields: The wizard allows you to create an Adaptive Form based on JSON and Form Data Model schemas. You can now select subset of fields within a schema to include in an Adaptive Form. The selected fields are converted to corresponding Adaptive Form data capture components to quickly create the desired adaptive forms.

    • Use Static Templates: Customers with existing investments in legacy static templates can continue their journey of cloud adoption by using static templates in wizard to author adaptive forms. This provides additional time to customers to migrate old static templates to modern editable templates.

  • Remove hidden fields from a Document of Record (DoR) while server-side processing: You can generate the document of record PDF for end users containing only those fields which were visible to them during data capture experience. Upon form submission, the server validates which fields were hidden to the end user based on submitted data and excludes from document of record for consistency.

    • Form Data Model in template editor: You can associate a Form Data Model schema to an Adaptive Form template in the template editor. It helps reduce the time taken to create an Adaptive Form. The option is also added to Adaptive Forms editor to allows users to select or change Form Data Model for existing forms.
    • Document of Record in template editor: You can now standardize Document of Record generation for all forms created using a template. This helps enhance compliance and standardization for org requirements.
  • Launch the Adaptive Form wizard from a AEM Sites Page: AEM Sites page has extended support for Adaptive Forms. You can now create a new Adaptive Form or embed an existing Adaptive Form while remaining on AEM Sites page.

  • Change display alignment for checkboxes and radiobutton in DoR: You can now set the desired alignment (Horizontal, Vertical, Same as Adaptive Forms) for checkbox and radio button on the Document of Record.
