We’re excited to announce that Responsive Forms is now live for all organizations and publishers using Submittable. Submission forms are now responsive on any device, meaning they are optimized to work on any size screen, for any device. With the vast majority of internet users going online through mobile devices–in 2014, U.S. internet users spent 52% of their time online on mobile vs. on desktop (Statista.com)–we’ve made it much easier for organizations to accept submissions from users on any kind of device.
Here’s an overview of Responsive Forms:
1) Submission forms resize to fit any device – Here’s a fun experiment: Open a Submittable submission form on a desktop computer. Keep resizing it and see how beautifully the screen adjusts as you make it smaller and smaller.
2) More tap- and click-friendly – As part of our mission to make forms as professional and, dare we say, gorgeous as possible, we also made them look more streamlined. We’ve made clickable areas bigger, so that it’s easier to tap on buttons and dropdown menus with your fingers on a mobile device or tablet. Category guidelines are now under More next to each category name. Click More to view the guidelines. Click again to close them. Click on the orange Submit or > button to go into the submission form.
3) No need to zoom or pan on form fields. – Once you click into a submission form, the form fields will resize with your screen. No need to zoom or pan from left to right on your mobile or tablet screen when filling out a form.
