FormSwift is a web-based software solution that allows users to make, revise, sign, and download forms and documents. Members are allowed to select from the software’s library of over 500 templates, or even upload their own and then make use of FormSwift’s tools to edit it. Users are also able to answer step-by-step questions in order to flesh out a document to the user’s specifications. The completed file may then be exported to either PDF or Word format, or even shared.
PDFs may also be uploaded and then edited by users by leveraging the FormSwift PDF editor. Using this particular function, the users are able to put in images, text, and check marks—and afterward save the PDF file. Updating the said file may also be done at any time. FormSwift also gives users the ability to attach their electronic signatures to documents and files. The software also has the ability to go through signature requests, then notifications will be received once the said document or file has been signed.
The first step when users create documents is choosing what kind of document they need. There is a large library that users are able to choose from. Should users be unsure of which template to choose, the templates are filtered for convenience by business, personal, tax, and real estate forms. Users may also use the search function, which can be filtered by keywords, to find what they need. After knowing what kind of document would best fit their needs, users can then select the “Create Document” option and then get started on personalizing the form. Just in case users are unable to find their preferred type of document, there is a “Suggest A Document” option in the document library of FormSwift, or they may also contact the customer service team.
When customizing forms, users simply answer a set of questions that are important in order to properly tailor-fit the document to the user’s needs. After finishing the questions, users can then review the entire document and may also edit it even further. Once everything is satisfactory, users may then export the file to either PDF or Word format. Documents created and edited using FormSwift are automatically saved to the user’s FormSwift account so they will be able to edit it at their leisure and also as a backup just in case the file gets lost or deleted.
If users were to choose and edit any government forms, they can make use of the PDF editor. Images, text, and check marks can be added to any part of the document so users will have no trouble in filling out documents that are landscaped as opposed to upright forms. Once users are finished with editing, they can then click on the “Download PDF” button that is located on the upper right of the user interface. The PDF file will also be automatically saved to the user’s account for the same reasons that a normal document is saved.
The “My Documents” tab on FormSwift has everything users need to edit a previously created document. Depending on what type of document was created, the users will be taken either to the document questionnaire portion of document creation or to the FormSwift PDF editor in order to change some of the input data. On the aforementioned tab, information about the document can also be gleaned such as whether the file is a PDF or not, and when the document was created.
If users wish, they are also able to print their created document directly from the FormSwift website. However, they need to make sure pop-ups are enabled in the browser they are using to access FormSwift, to make sure the request to print will go through. On the “My Documents” tab, users are also able to see a “Sign” button which is used to electronically sign any document they created. When creating a signature, users are given three options. They can type in their signature, draw it using the mouse or other hardware, or upload an image of their signature.
Once the signature is created, users are able to drag it anywhere with the mouse. A single click will then paste it to where the cursor is currently hovering over on the document. If the user is still within the part of FormSwift where he or she is editing the document, there is also a “Signature” button located at the top of the page.
Users are also able to share the created documents from the “My Documents” tab. The share button has an icon of a letter on it. Using this function, users are able to share via email the created documents that were automatically saved to FormSwift. By making use of the share feature, FormSwift account holders are able to invite collaborators to contribute, edit, or review a document. They may also use it to request a signature and users will receive a notification once the document has been signed. Sending the document as a PDF file is also possible.
The software is aptly named because, if anything else, FormSwift definitely makes it easy for users to create documents quickly. The format on how users are able to create a document is very straightforward and intuitive. It makes sure that even though it is personalized and tailor-fit to the user’s needs, it still follows the basic outline of the selected document to make sure that it still conforms to expectations.
Fulfilling the needs of small to medium-sized businesses and even large enterprises, the software is certainly very flexible and dynamic. It turns what used to be a cumbersome and very time-consuming process into something that can be done within minutes and without hassle.
FormSwift has three different pricing plans for users so that they are able to choose what kind of membership they want. As a member, they have access to all of FormSwift’s features. These include, but are not limited to, creating an unlimited number of documents, uploading and editing of any PDF document, electronically signing documents or asking for electronic signatures from other people, and also sharing the created documents via email.
FormSwift does allow a free trial period of seven days. However, unlike other software, it needs credit card information even for this part of the membership. After the free trial period has ended, users will then be billed for the monthly membership. This monthly membership will cost $39.95 per month after the trial. There is also an annual membership option, which costs $89 per year. The last choice for membership is the One Document Only plan, which costs $59 for just one document to be created or edited and then exported, shared, or printed. At any time, users are also able to cancel their current membership. However, there is no refund promised.
The web-based software FormSwift is powerful and intuitive, making sure users will get what they came for. Despite the seemingly steep pricing plans, users are assured they will indeed get what was promised of them—a simple yet robust software solution that will make form creation, editing, and downloading as easy as possible. It is worth a try for anybody who wants form and document creation and editing to be quick and easy.
