Formstack is a powerful and flexible suite of tools to collect, manipulate and output your online data. Back in "the day" Formstack was one of the early players in the online forms game. They eventually decided, "we're helping people collect a lot of data, but maybe we should help them do more with that data". As a result they started expanding their tools and capabilities through acquisition — as well as through external integrations. Their document generating tool, Formstack Docs, was a company called WebMerge. Their signature tool, Formstack Sign, was a company called InsureSign. Over the years these three disparate tools have developed tight integrations that work really well together.
Note: There is also a Salesforce tool, but we won't cover that here.
Let it be known... along with Webflow, Formstack Docs is one of our favorite low code tools. It honestly makes us feel like we have super powers. It helps us and our clients save hundreds of hours every year. We haven't seen many tools in the low code space that provide functionality and flexibility like Formstack Docs. While it is a low code tool, we feel like we get full code customization and results.

Formstack is powerful - almost feeling like a big step towards enterprise software. While it can be finicky at times, their Docs tool is one of our favorites in the no code space. Of all the workflows we've created, the systems that include Formstack Docs are definitely the most impressive and have the most direct application in a traditional business setting. Put another way, Formstack Doc automations save us crazy amounts of time in the real world — something any no code tool would love to claim.
Additionally, the integration between Forms and Docs is super tight and stable — which is amazing because it means we don't have to muck around with data delivery tools. When it is integrated with other platforms, Formstack really takes things to 11.
While we really do love what Formstack brings to the table, our experience has taught us a few things:
