Form Tools – powerful flexible PHP/MySQL script

Form Tools is a powerful, flexible, PHP/MySQL script you install on your website for managing your forms and data.

At its heart, Form Tools is a web form creator, processor, data storage and access script. It was originally designed to work with any existing web form, but has since been expanded to create forms automatically as well.

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Use the bundled Form Builder module to create the forms automatically on your website (no programming or HTML skills necessary);
  • Provides a range of functionality customized to your data set, such as allowing you to view, update, cross-reference and export your submission data, create subsets of your data for viewing/editing by “client” accounts, data visualizations, and much more.
  • Re-usable – a single installation can handle as many forms as you wish – even from different websites. You can set up as many client accounts as you wish, enabling multiple users to log in, view and manage their own data online. Form Tools 2 provides a wide palette of permission settings to allow you to precisely customize who sees what.
  • Generic – very little modification to the web forms is needed to allow Form Tools to store their content. It works with virtually any web form.
  • Brandable – entire script is theme-based, using Smarty templates to generate the HTM
  • Extensible – fully modular.
