Build custom forms from scratch
Both PandaDoc and Gravity Forms allow you to build user-friendly forms from scratch using a drag-and-drop interface. As with Gravity Forms, PandaDoc users build documents in the form editor and adjust how fields are placed before publishing the online form to the website. It’s easy and intuitive, even for first-time users, whether you’re trying to create a basic contact form or advanced forms for a specific use case.
For WordPress and beyond
Just like Gravity Forms, PandaDoc works well in WordPress — but PandaDoc doesn’t stop there. At its core, Gravity Forms is a WordPress Form builder. The Gravity Forms plugin connects to your WordPress backend and allows you to create and publish forms from there. PandaDoc takes a different approach. With PandaDoc, users will create their own forms via the PandaDoc editor and then add the forms into their website HTML/CSS via an embed code. This means that forms can be used for any website CMS, from WordPress to Webflow and more!
A form for every website
Part of the Gravity Forms pricing schema limits the number of websites where your forms can be installed. If you need to install forms on more than one website, you’ll end up paying significantly more for this feature. PandaDoc uses embeddable forms and doesn’t restrict the number of websites where they can be used, so you can create forms for every WordPress site you own and collect all of your information through your PandaDoc dashboard.
No more add-ons
Need to connect your form to a particular service? Gravity Forms add-ons allow you to do exactly that. Your features and functionality vary based on what package that you have. While many of these upgrades are focused on integrations with email marketing solutions and other third-party add-ons, you’ll have to snag the elite add-on package to gain access to tools like form payment collection and electronic signature options. With PandaDoc, many of these features are natively available, meaning that no addons are required to access these essential form fields.
Support when you need it
There is a lot to love about Gravity Forms but — when compared to PandaDoc — support options can be limited. The Gravity Forms team provides support during normal business hours and offers priority support to the highest-paying users. By comparison, PandaDoc offers 24/7 chat support to every user, even for accounts using the free version of our product! When you have a question, our team is there to help you get back on track without sending an email or submitting a ticket.
More than a form creation tool
Drag and drop document creation
Gravity Forms does a great job at form creation, but PandaDoc is more than a form builder plugin. Using our text box tools and third-party integrations, it’s possible to create proposals, contracts, and more using the same set of tools that you can use to build your online form.
Improved document functionality
With PandaDoc, every document and form comes equipped with functionality that goes beyond basic formatting and inputs. Our documents are equipped with powerful analytics so that you can see how your users interact with them. Electronic signature tools, custom branding options, and rich media features are all in place to help you create a product that is truly unique to your brand.
Capture payments with ease
While payment capture through Gravity Forms requires addons, PandaDoc can help you connect with third-party tools for free. Our payment forms integrate with PayPal, Stripe, Square, and other tools for fast and easy payment collection. These integrations are built into the form maker. When a payment is made, the PandaDoc attaches that payment capture to the form entry so that it’s easy to keep payment and form information together.
Build complex forms and documents
In the same way that Gravity Forms polls and surveys allow you to gather specific information, PandaDoc documents and forms are equipped with customization tools to improve versatility. While you can create forms using simple text boxes, you can also use checkboxes, signature initial tools, file uploads, payment fields, and more to build your ideal form.
Save your document and form templates
When you’re finished building a document or a form with PandaDoc, a great next step is to save it as a template. For teams in multi-department organizations, templates can be used to share information and provide a solid foundation for future form creation. Give your documents extra life within your organization by saving and sharing templates across the board.
Always-secure form submissions
When using Gravity Forms or any other WordPress plugin or widget, website security is always a key consideration. Like most other WordPress forms tools out there (Ninja Forms, WPForms, JotForm, etc.) PandaDoc uses CAPTCHA technology to eliminate spam. But you also have to think about compliance if your website is ever compromised because your form submission information is stored inside the WordPress plugin where you built your form. With PandaDoc, you’ll never have to worry about information security if something goes wrong. Your forms are stored offsite in your PandaDoc account, behind our security infrastructure. Using PandaDoc is a great way to add an additional layer of GDPR-friendly security to your form collection process.
