It this week’s release we’ve also added the possibility to group forms across products for fast updates of multiple forms in one place.
Until now, if you has multiple products with various components, managing them could have been a bit overwhelming. Updating the price for 1GB Ram in 20 products would require you to click around 100 times. This was because the components were not linked between products (which also have some advantages).
As of today you can link certain forms and form values into groups, so that is you for example add an element to the form, it will be added to all forms in the group or if you update price, name or feature – it will be updated in all other form elements as well. To add a new form groups navigate to Settings -> Product & Services -> Form groups (from the left menu).
Thanks to the new feature managing your form components will be a lot easier!
