    Is there a way to Embed the form code right into an email so that the person receiving the form receives the form and not a button they have to click to get to the form?

    Looking to make it one step for our folks instead of 2. If the form opens in their email they may be more inclined to immediately respond instead of ignoring the button :)

    Hey there!

    At this time, this is not a current feature. This is something that you would have to post in the source code of the email, however, it is still going to show them a tab to click on:

    I know that is not exactly what you are hoping for but I do hope the suggestion is helpful. 

    We appreciate your feedback!

    Happy Breezing!

    Is there a way to have a transparent background for the form?

    Hey Hannah!

    The forms section is very robust in what it offers for making it efficient and quick, yet it was designed to keep things user friendly and simple. 

    With this in mind, there are still a few limitations when it comes to customizing the forms. Everything you are able to customize about the form can be found in the settings included changing the background of the form:

    Here is an additional resource that will be most helpful as you edit the settings of your form: Editing Form Settings

    I am pushing to use breeze for more forms and billing, but we often will use/embed multiple forms onto a single registration page on our website. When we use multiple embeds specifically there is something about the embed.js file that makes it so only one of the forms will work. If I manually do an iframe with the link, that will work fine, but it makes it harder for our staff who doesn't have coding experience. 

    Is that something that could be addressed? Not sure what else to do other than manually code more things.

    Hey @nboehnen, Thanks for your question!  This is a bug/issue that we've been tracking.  Our development team has been made aware and they've got it on their list for fixing. Unfortunately in the mean time we don't have any other great alternatives - but we do hope to have the issue fixed as soon as possible.

    Is it possible to share a form that's auto-populated with information from an existing person?

    Like this: John D. registered his family last year using a Breeze form. We ask parents to update/confirm their information every fall. Could I send John D. a link to a form already filled with his information? Alternately, is it possible to produce an Email Merge that incorporates current personal data for the recipients?

    I know this is an odd function & I'm not optimistic, but I thought it was worth asking. Thanks.

    Hey @recoordinator,

    Those both sound like great ideas! At this time these are not available in Breeze, however, we are always looking for improvements! Thank you for the great ideas.

    Blessings!

    By the way - embedding a form into a WordPress.com site is no longer an issue if you have a business plan or above.  The Jetpack Advanced plug-in allows for JavaScript.  Simply paste the embed code into the text editor (not the visual editor) and you are good to go!

    It won't work for premium plans, though. 

    Anyway, knowing this might save someone some time.  :)

    Is there a way to have people fill out the forms directly in the app or does it have to be through the web link?

    For example, if we create a Sunday School registration form and our Director has a tablet with the app, it seems like she should be able to just have families fill out the registration form in the app rather than loading the link in Safari. But I don’t see a way to do that.

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forum! The only way to Fill out a Form is through a Browser. Even when you're in the App, it will redirect you to the browser in order to view a form. Thanks for the great question!

     

    Blessings,

    I would like to link a form to an event on the calendar where members can click on the event and go straight to the form. How do I do that?

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forum. The best way to link a Form link to the Event, is to place the Form link in the Description of the Event! This link will still be dynamic (clickable) so that it will lead them straight to the Form! 

    I hope this helps!

    I understand that the app will open any form links in a browser, but I would still really like to have a section in the app where people can link to forms.  It would be great to have a forms header that was just to fill forms in.  Like Prayer requests.  If we can ask for people to give through Breeze it seems like they should also be able to ask for us to give back in prayer.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! You can certainly use breeze for this, however it's not within the app. You would simply need to create a form for this and share that form on your website or wherever you would like to ask for their prayer requests. It sounds like what you're really needing is in app that's specifically created for your church as opposed to the breeze app. We have a partnership with the great company for this called Subsplash. Feel free to take a look at their Product and see if it's useful for you!
