We kicked off August with one focus - form integrations. We want Fillout to work seamlessly with the tools you use today - and any you might use in the future.

Here are the 3 newest integrations and a few upgrades to make existing connections more powerful ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ Sync file uploads to Dropbox

The new Fillout + Dropbox integration lets you decide exactly where you store uploaded files, with dynamic folder and file names.

Learn more here or give the integration a spin in-app.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Add multiple integrations of the same type

For example, add two Dropbox integrations to save different file uploads to different folders or even entirely different Dropbox accounts.

Note that database integrations, like Airtable or Notion, are still limited to 1 per form. Let us know if you have a use case for multiple DB integrations!

๐Ÿฅณ "What's new" page

We now have a changelog with the latest Fillout updates. You can also catch up on new releases in the "news" tab of our Intercom support chat.

๐Ÿ’ผ HubSpot integration

The new Hubspot integration lets you create or update contacts from a Fillout form.

Options are automatically synced, so your forms work out-of-the-box. More details here.

๐Ÿ“† Calendly improvements

The Calendly integration now returns the scheduled event's "uuid". This unlocks powerful workflows, as demoed by friend of Fillout Gareth Pronovost in this video.

โšก๏ธ integration

Last but not least, Fillout now integrates natively with Monday, one of the most popular project management tools. Get started here.

๐Ÿ› Fixes and improvements

  • Added the option to limit file upload sizes.
  • Fixed issue of location coordinates not working in form embeds.
  • Home page is now accessible on mobile devices.

๐Ÿ“ Edit existing submissions

Need to resubmit an existing response?

Open a submission in Fillout and click "Edit submission" to open a pre-filled update form. Re-submitting the form will also rerun any integrations.

This update was made on May 12, 2023.

In the last 2 weeks, we've secretly released a swath of new features for building "quizzes" in Fillout.

In between our quiz escapades, we also shipped a bunch of new Fillout features. More below ๐Ÿ‘‡

Fillout has entered a new dimension (literally!). As of today, your forms can show questions side by side, in multiple columns.

This was a tricky one to add since we always want to balance ease-of-use of the drag-n-drop system with power and flexibility.
