Secure Forms

Secure Custom-Made Forms


Secure Forms allow your end-users to fill out and submit information online through secure custom-made forms with one or more input values, optionally upload files through GoAnywhere's HTTPS Web Client, or submit forms online by making SOAP or REST requests from your custom built applications.

When a form is submitted, a Project in GoAnywhere is executed to automatically process the submitted values and files.

Why Use Secure Forms?


To control the data that end-users provide when submitting information, GoAnywhere administrators can define Secure Forms with:

  • Configurable input fields
  • Custom labels
  • File upload components

When the Project processes the Secure Form, it can return a custom message and one or more output files to the user.

A Secure Form can be specified to various intended languages. For example, two forms may be created that serve the same purpose, but one may be in French while the other is in English. GoAnywhere administrators can choose their preferred language in the Web Client, which will then only show forms that are applicable to the selected language.

Secure Form Submission

A Secure Form can be authorized to one or more Web Users, who must then log in through the Web Client to complete the form. Optionally, Secure Forms can be configured to allow anonymous users to access the form through a public URL.

Secure Form Use Cases

Secure Forms are used by organizations in all industries to streamline, centralize, and standardize information intake. Companies have used Secure Forms to reduce the number of ways in which files arrive (i.e., by fax, email, or other online submission), collect confidential information, and ensure data is delivered securely.

In one instance, Secure Forms are used to collect electronic voting ballots by prompting the user to enter their voting information and attach a scanned PDF. A Project workflow then automatically process and distribute this electronic ballot to the appropriate election official based on the voting information provided by the end-user within the Secure Form
