Aesthetic customization of forms


#1

Unless I’m missing something, there doesn’t seem to be a way to modify forms beyond adding or removing fields.

It would be great if we could make even basic HTML/CSS changes (background colour, alignment etc), add labels or at least be able to lay things out differently.

As a working example, I’d love to create a form for the first stage of a finance application. Part of this would require a table which would be filled out something like this:

Credit Card | $50 /month repayment | $3,000 balance
Personal Loan | $240 /month repayment | $15,000 balance

There are a minimum of 5 rows in this table that users must complete. With the current form restrictions that means adding 10 questions which is a LOT of scrolling and makes it feel very cumbersome:

If you have a credit card, what is the current balance?
$3,000

If you have a credit card, what is the minimum monthly repayment?
$50

And so on.

I’m currently trialling the pro version which does add some great features but this one still appears to be lacking.

Thanks!

I couldn’t agree more with you! :slight_smile:

Imagine having close to 50 SHORT fields to answer. Instead of having 50 vertical questions, if we could put 5 of them in the same row, it would bring us down to ONLY 10 rows of questions!

Where are we at with this Airtable? I am trying to directly capture data from a form on my website, but I don’t seem to be able to customise the style of the form? I would have thought this was a pretty basic feature request?

some basic customization of form displays is a must! The UI could be a simplified version of the Page Designer so users can set field widths, spacing, etc.

This will make AirTable users less reliant on Zapier and 3rd party apps
