We were once using CMS Made Simple (friggin awesome!) but the university decided to have us switch over to OmniUpdate. My department is very form heavy (51 e-forms) and now that we're on OU, there is no current form builder that normal users can utilize. I recently started creating forms out of GoogleDocs and the embed as an iFrame function is awesome! It actually worked for one of my forms embedding it into OU but for some reason, any other form that I try to embed does not properly display. In fact, I can't even save and publish the page anymore! Do I need to do something differently? If not, it's going to be a rough time trying to get these forms working.
Thanks in advance to anyone able to provide me with some insight on this issue that I'm having.
OmniUpdate's OU Campus currently has the ability to create forms from within the WYSIWYG editor. This is an easy front end tool only. The forms can be set to connect to an existing production server script to handle the processing of the form. An OU Campus admin has the ability to hide this (or any) tool from the WYSIWYG toolbar. So, it may not be available to you in the page templates you use.
OmniUpdate is about to release our Forms module of LDP (Live Delivery Platform). It can be used for Forms, Polls, and Surveys. The Forms module will be a staging and production server integrated solution to handle easy form creation as a reusable asset (which can be placed on any page), server side processing of the form data, and results reporting within OU Campus. WKU will be among the first of our clients to get this new functionality turned on for use in your websites.
In the mean time, I would be glad to have one of my support engineers help you with the current GoogleDocs and iFrame issue you are having integrating with a page or template. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and example page(s) and I will have an engineer respond promptly.
