5. Include a dynamic Excel chart in your form

Our Excel Chart custom control supports Excel Services using REST. This means you can, for example, create a form that submits data to Excel online and displays a chart image based on that data.

6. Capture bar codes from the device's camera

No need for a dedicated bluetooth-connected bar code reader if you prefer to use the mobile device's camera. Our Barcode custom control supports several different bar codes and QR codes.

7. Submit secondary data to one or more SharePoint lists

With the SharePoint List Connector custom control you can use a secondary data connection to submit data to a SharePoint list from a repeating table. Each table submits to a list separately from submitting the form.

8. Open one form from inside another form

Not only can one form open another in Formotus Pro, but it can pass data across. Imagine, for example, a user filling an inspection form finds a problem and opens a work order form pre-filled with all the case info.
