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.

To showcase the new capabilities (and for fun!), we just launched a ๐Ÿ‘€ new AI tool ๐Ÿ‘€ on Product Hunt.

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

๐Ÿ‘€ More subtle branding on Pro plan

We made the Fillout branding less noticeable on the Pro plan. Note that you can still remove Fillout branding entirely from ending pages.

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.

Hopefully you like the result - check out the announcement and let us know how we did!

We've also got 6 more updates to share, more below ๐Ÿ‘‡

๐Ÿ‘€ Hidden fields are easier to use

In edit mode, you can now easily see which fields are hidden or shown with conditional logic.

Make form questions take up less room with the new "half width" setting.
