New Features for Cloud Customers
frevvo is committed to making Live Forms more intuitive and easier to use. More features/improvements are coming in future releases.
Looking for an example form/flow that you can use to build one that meets your business requirements? Whether you are new to Live Forms or a valued customer, pre-built templates are designed to let you quickly try a form/flow for evaluation.
When designer/tenant admin users login to a Live Forms tenant, several pre-installed form/flow templates appear in a box at the top of the Applications Home Page. Hover over any template and click the green button to install it into your Cloud tenant.
Now you can also search the list of available installable templates and install them in your Live Forms Cloud tenant with a single click. All Workflow Templates come with a Guided Tour that automatically launches after installation. The Guided Tour shows you how to run the workflow, explains application screens and guides you through some small modifications. Installable Templates are an excellent way to get started designing Forms and Flows.
Follow these steps to search the frevvo website for an Installable Template:

- Click the More template apps button at the top of the page. You will see an All Templates tab and Category tabs created by the frevvo superuser i.e. HR, Finance, Education.
There are two ways to search for Installable Templates:
When the search screen displays, the All Templates tab is highlighted. Type your search criteria into the search box. Live Forms will search all available Installable Templates on the website.
Click a Category tab of interest and type your search criteria into the search box.
- Templates that match the template name, description, category or tags set up by the frevvo superuser display. You will see this message if there are no matches.
- Hover over the template of your choice and click Install. The selected template immediately appears in the application list. You will see the Forms/ Home page for that template. Refer to Templates for more information about this awesome feature.
