I am looking at re-writing my websites in the new Websitebuilder. However on my current websites built using Sitebuilder Plus I have custom forms with drop down menus and check boxes etc. I was HOPING that the Websitebuilder would have more advanced custom forms - so for example selecting different drop down options would determine which page the user went to on submitting the form. However Websitebuilder seems to only have the contact form - and while this is more customisable than than the one in Sitebuilder Plus, I cannot see any other options for custom forms with list boxes, drop down menus, check boxes etc. All I can see is the contact form with fields to input text. Is this really the case or am I just missing something?!

Alas,WebsiteBuilder, as much as I like it, does indeed lack dynamic forms.  I have been using Formsite for things like you describe.  It is not free but is very reliable and can be customized nicely.  You can also control the submission responses and other things.  The tracking of results is also useful.  For simpler forms, 123 Forms is OK.  I use that for some things, as well and that one has a free version.  Hope that helps.

Hello,

I have sent some feedback about the forms functions and have requested to allow more customization, it is now in the hands of the engineers to implemented these requests. Another custom form builder you can use for free is jotform, a lot of customers were able to successfully built their forms with this platform.
