What's New in Version 5.2

AsdeqForms for Web

Version 5.2 brings AsdeqForms to the web, allowing forms to be submitted, edited and searched for through a browser.

AsdeqForms for web supports Google Chrome, Safari and Microsoft Edge browsers. Please note that Internet Explorer 11 and earlier is not supported, Edge is required.

AsdeqForms for Web is accessed through the new 'products' menu at the top right of the page which allows quick switching between AsdeqDocs, AsdeqForms and administration tasks.

Within AsdeqForms for Web a user is presented with a list of forms that they can use, and their existing drafts and submitted forms.

Filling in and submitting a form uses exactly the same form engine as the iPad and iPhone versions of AsdeqForms and a familiar user interface. Forms developed for these devices should just work on the web.

In addition, forms that have been partially completed on a mobile device can be completed on the web, or vice versa. 

AsdeqForms for Web contains a grid based display targeted at form administrators. This allows filtering, sorting, and paging of form submissions which allows particular submissions to be easily found. The filtered list can be exported to Excel or PDF format.

There are many more features to discover within AsdeqForms for Web. Upgrade to version 5.2 to give it a try, or contact AsdeqLabs for a trial.

Server Side Scripts

AsdeqServer now has the ability to run Javascript or Groovy scripts on the server, and expose those scripts as a REST API.

This allows for extensive customisation of the server - for instance automatically creating document libraries based on custom business logic. The scripting capability must be turned on within general settings.

Talk to AsdeqLabs is you have a customisation requirement that we can help with, and check out the Server Plugins and Scripts Documentation.

Form Datasources

Form definitions can now contain <datasource> elements which make loading and binding resource files such as JSON, CSV and TSV files more convenient.

Future versions will allow creating and configuring these datasources from the form editor user interface.

See the Form Datasources Documentation for more details.

Form Definition Import/Export

A form definition can now be exported to a zip file containing it's schema, script files and other resources which are found in the default location. This file can then be imported when creating a new form.


AsdeqForms for Web has been built from the ground up to use a REST API which is documented and available.

Amongst other things the API allows listing form libraries and form instances, searching, and getting and submitting form data.

The server contains a Swagger / OpenAPI end point to document the API.

For more details please see the AsdeqForms Service API page for documentation on the API.


Other Improvements

  • AsdeqServer now uses the Microsoft JDBC driver rather than the jTDS driver when connecting to a SQL Server database. Most installations will automatically upgrade, if you are using Windows Integration Authentication to connect to the database then some configuration changes are needed. See Windows Integrated Authentication in SQL Server.   
  • The AsdeqForms SDK used by the server, for the form editor and AsdeqForms for web, can now be selected and upgraded independently of the server itself.
  • Many bug fixes and performance improvements. In particular form submission and searching has been dramatically improved.
