In today’s world of work, collaboration and data are key to keeping your projects on track while meeting your targets. Apps like Trello are designed to streamline your work processes and improve communication between and within teams. With its eforms, form templates and the drag-and-drop form builder, Hipporello Service Desk and many other Power-Ups by Hipporello allow you to integrate your clients, customers, employees and other non-Trello stakeholders into your workflow through a user web portal.
If you’re looking for something easy-to-learn, complex or want different features to what is available in the native Trello, Hipporello is ready to power up your intake forms on Trello.
What are eForms? And how do I know if I need them?
An electronic form (eForm) is an online document that replaces traditional paper forms. Similar to a paper form, the online form asks the reader to complete fields, but without the restrictions of accessing, and keeping paper documents.
With eforms, data collection is now easier than ever as they’re online, easy to send and access. Links to these electronic forms can be distributed to anyone who requires them after they have been made and hosted centrally. eForms instantly collect data instead of requiring mailing or in-person return, reducing the amount of time wasted in many companies.
Good eForms like the ones by Hipporello enable businesses to create and customize forms to meet their needs. Once forms are created and fine tuned, they are ready to be sent out to different audiences depending on what you want to collect.
