All-in-one document workflows

Just like Formstack, PandaDoc offers an all-in-one, no-code workflow that you can leverage to create documents and forms while capturing electronic signatures. The PandaDoc platform features a user-friendly document editor that allows users to build complex documents from a blank page, send them to signers, and create templates for fast and easy reuse.

The biggest difference: Unlike Formstack, which is split into three separate tools that need to work together, PandaDoc is built from the ground up as an all-in-one document solution. Use the same tools to create both forms and documents. Collaborate with signers in the same workspace where you build your documents. Onboard team members faster, and enjoy streamlined user workflows.

Templates & forms without limits

Whether you work with Formstack products as a standalone or as part of the Formstack Suite, you’ll quickly encounter limits and restrictions. Formstack Documents limits users to ten document templates. Formstack Forms limits users to 20 Digital Forms. While some of these restrictions are removed with the Formstack Suite, some features become even more restrictive as part of the packaged deal.

PandaDoc eliminates those restrictions. Create as many templates or digital forms as you need. Use them however you like. You can even customize form and doc templates from our template library for unlimited use.

Centralize your document process

In many ways, Formstack tries to act as the ultimate document integration. Users can import data from outside sources like Salesforce and use the formatting and functionality in Formstack Documents to streamline document creation.

PandaDoc takes this a step further by providing an entire digital workspace for real-time collaboration and negotiation. Use virtual deal rooms to walk customers through your contracts and proposals. Use the online form builder to collect data through forms and evaluate the results without ever leaving the PandaDoc platform. While it’s possible to export and sync data with integrations, PandaDoc offers a suite of onboard tools to help you centralize every aspect of your document process.

Why switch from Formstack to PandaDoc?

Consolidate your digital workspace

With PandaDoc, there are no limitations on the type of documents you can create, which enables you to centralize your document creation process. Whether you’ve been using Formstack Forms for forms and other platforms like Microsoft Word or Google Docs for document generation, you can bring everything together with PandaDoc. Still prefer using your current tools? Not an issue. Just import your completed documents into PandaDoc and easily incorporate digital signatures or payment gateways before sending them to recipients for signing.

Plg - Role Customer Success

E-signature where you need them

Like Formstack Sign and other competitors (DocuSign, Jotform, Adobe Sign, etc.), PandaDoc provides eSigning tools to help you capture secure digital signatures on every document. Unlimited e-signatures are included with every plan, and signer authentication is handled via secure links and email sharing. We also offer mobile signing through the PandaDoc mobile app, so signing on the go is always fast and simple.


Full integration with your tech stack

While PandaDoc can be used as a standalone platform, we offer both native and third-party integrations via Zapier. Build and import documents via Microsoft Word. Sync data with Salesforce, HubSpot, or Zoho CRM. Collect payments with Stripe or PayPal. Integrate your full tech stack for a fully customizable document creation experience.


Better analytics and tracking

Want to know how readers interact with your documents? PandaDoc offers analytics and tracking on every document so that you can better understand how your documents are handled and where problem areas might exist. Use this data to see how long signers review documents, how many times they’ve viewed it, or if any links were clicked. Give your team the information they need to follow-up with prospects and optimize your documents for even greater success.

Automate your data collection

With our comprehensive set of automation tools, you can consolidate and analyze the data from your forms and documents. While the data is stored in your PandaDoc dashboard, it can be easily downloaded as a CSV file for further analysis in Excel or Google Sheets for further analysis using more advanced tools.


Support anytime you need it

At PandaDoc, we’ve worked hard to ensure that our software is streamlined, intuitive, and easy to use. But, sometimes, you just need help! While we do offer an extensive knowledge base, our team is on standby via 24/7 chat support. No more support tickets or scheduled callbacks. When you have a question, all you need to do is ask. We also offer premium support (separate from our standard plan) if you’d like a dedicated account manager and/or additional phone support.
