Hi @makkena swetha ,

 

The form builder in Automation 360 enables you to create or edit forms using various form elements available through a browser interface.

Interactive forms are electronic documents that respond to input from a user. They're programmed to ask follow-up questions in order to achieve completeness and accuracy and are most often used to speed up and automate the manual process of mass document preparation

Hi @makkena swetha ,

Forms are a gateway for users like you and me to interact with the automation.
People are usually scared of automations - thinking it will bite their hand off if they get too close.

Then again, this is something the client does when the automation fails, so the fear is real.

Why Forms?
Because there are tasks that require your intelligence - no matter how little it may be(huhuhu)
The bot takes care of stuff that is boring, repetitive and requires little to no intelligence other than a bit of conditional logic, while only consulting you when there are decisions only you should take - something like an approval flow.

If you’d like to learn more, I’ve written a 3 part series on this which you can check out from the link below:


Kind Regards,
