With the alpha release of a GUI, the CiviCRM Core Team delivered a stunning blow the Galactic forces of inflexibility. Work continues in 2020 to build upon this success, with plans to expand Form Builder across new entities such as Cases and Events, to replace core screens such as the 'Add/Edit Contact' and to release a stable, powerful extension so that users can begin to fully realize the power of the Form Builder.

Let by two young Jedis, Tim Otten and Coleman Watts, Form Builder brings a new hope for CiviCRM. Join the rebellion today by making a donation to Form Builder. And may the form be with you!

About Form Builder

Long identified as a key piece of functionality, the native form builder made it officially to the roadmap in 2015. A lot of design work has gone into Form Builder already, resulting in a working albeit 'not pretty' prototype. Work on Form Builder for the remainder of the year will focus on implementing a drag and drop interface as well as a stable, useable extension. 

Form Builder is a big undertaking with even bigger implications, and will revolutionize CiviCRM's capability to build and manage online forms. Progress will be released incrementally over time, and support for this initiative will be needed on an ongoing basis.

Like all major pieces of functionality, this form builder will not happen without a significant community investment. If you have questions or wish to make a pledge, contact Josh at
