It seems like each year, Formidable Forms can't get any more powerful.
Then, our developers go and blow our (high) expectations away, and we see just how powerful it can really be. And this past year was no different!
From Formidable Forms 6.0 to a built-in AI field to Stripe payments in Formidable's free plugin — It's safe to say our developers were MIGHTY busy.
So, let's dive into all of the features we released with one thing in mind: you.

Formidable's feature releases in 2023
Formidable Forms 6.0
A new version of Formidable Forms doesn't mean one new feature.
Starting with our Form Styler, our developers made it way easier to customize your forms. From the font to the colors to the spacing — it's all now under the Style menu.
Next up was simplifying everything that happens after your user submits a form. And one of those was the Confirmation action.
Just like styling your forms, this was a hassle before. Now, it's much more intuitive and faster so you can focus on building and publishing your forms — not toying with settings.
Last was making Formidable Forms look better.
So, we searched for a better surgeon than the Kardashians use. And we found one that has made Formidable Forms look incredible.
We hope you're loving it just as much as we are.
Adding PDFs to Formidable Forms in 2022 was a huge deal.
Making them even more powerful and customizable in 2023? Even bigger! With Formidable Views and PDFs, your imagination is the only limit to what you can create.
For example, here are a few things people are making with Formidable's PDFs:
AI form field
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the world by storm in the last few years.
And Formidable isn't exempt from that! In fact, we went full-on and added ChatGPT into your form fields!
That means you can have a support agent, AI product recommendations, or just a simple chatbot — right on your website. It's amazing how much one field can boost every part of your website!
Stripe payment options
Accepting payments on your website can be difficult.
But it doesn't have to be. And especially accepting 15+ Stripe payment options using one plugin? That definitely doesn't have to be hard. (At least with Formidable Forms and Stripe!)
Digital wallets, Buy now/pay later, and even WordPress ACH payments are all available when you put Formidable Forms on your website.
And with that, your payment possibilities are unlimited.
Travel planning? Appointment scheduling? Estimating delivery dates?
Formidable has a solution for that: a date calculator.
Whether you're a business that needs a simple way to track all appointments and meetings or a travel company hoping to manage client's itineraries — this is the answer you were looking for.
All you need to do is create an online date calculator!
Free Stripe payments
Remember all those Stripe Payment options we mentioned?
How about getting those for FREE? Well, mostly. There's a 3% transaction fee.
If you're looking to accept credit card payments online for free — Formidable is it! We're almost tempted to label 2023 as the year of the payments!
Form abandonment tracking
Form abandonment is a serious problem for online forms.
Previously, solving it meant using complicated tags and finding the data in Google Analytics 4 (GA4). But with Formidable Forms, it's as simple as flipping a toggle!
Then, you can send out a quick recovery email to bring them back to your form to finish it. All this and more with form abandonment tracking.
Say goodbye to your form abandonment issues!
Form templates page
Form templates make everyone's lives easier.
They're faster, often have everything you need, and let you focus on what you're good at.
And they're easier to find in Formidable Forms with our improved form templates page in the plugin! Now you can create all types of forms...even faster!
Charts and graphs block
If you're like us, understanding charts and graphs is difficult enough.
But having to create charts in WordPress, design them, or even code them? Forget about it! And that's the way it was previously with Formidable. You could create beautiful charts and graphs, you just needed to add some extra elbow grease to make them beautiful.
Our developers simplified the future of Formidable's WordPress charts and graphs plugin, though.
Now, it's as easy as adding the Formidable Chart block and then customizing it in the sidebar.
Pie charts, bar charts, and even maps are only a click away. And the customization options are in the same spot! So no confusing code or searching through settings.
One simple option — just the way we like it.
Whew! Did you get all that?
But we're nowhere close to finished. 2024 is shaping up to be an even BIGGER year. And we're excited to have you as a part of it.
Stay tuned for more. And if you haven't experienced any of these amazing features yet, it's time to head over and grab the best form maker for WordPress!
