:rocket: New features

:one: The โ€œotherโ€-answer"
One of the most often requested feature was the ability to add an โ€œotherโ€-answer. This is now possible:
For more information see it on GitHub.

:two: Share with circles
It is now also possible to also share forms with circles!

:three: Notifications on shared results
If you have permissions to see the results of a shared form, you now can opt-in to receive notifications for new submissions to it.

:four: Validation on short text inputs
We have added build in support to validate answers of the โ€œshort inputโ€ type for email addresses, phone numbers, number in general and also allow you to valide the answers based on a custom regular expression.

:five: Initial right-to-left language support
We have fixed our app to support right-to-left texts, like in descriptions. There is still work to be done but we a first step is done!

    • :bug: This fixed an issue were you could not set the new โ€œallow other answerโ€ option.
  • 3.4.2 (28th November 2023):
    • :bug: Fixed a regression where you were not possible to move questions using the buttons instead of drag-and-drop.
