With this add-on you can create forms that you can send to other employees to fill in.
This add-on can create a form that, for example, helps new employees document computers in your company.

When entering new objects, it is often the case that several categories are displayed, but only individual fields from each category need to be maintained.
In this case it is easier for the user (especially if they are new colleagues) if only the attributes that actually need to be filled in are displayed.

The Forms add-on uses the design of the new i-doit Cloud product, so the appearance is different from the other i-doit 1.x Add-ons.

We have also a Blog article with a lot of Information.



The Forms add-on requires:

  • i-doit Version >=23
  • MongoDB Server Version 5
  • NodeJS Version >=16.x

Also the system requirements of MongoDB must be observed.
Also, MongoDB has a checklist for use in operations.

NodeJS has its dependencies documented here.


Continue to the installation of the Forms add-on

Assignment of rights#

In order for users to be able to create forms, it is necessary to assign appropriate rights.
This is possible in the i-doit administration under Authorization System > Rights > Forms, if the add-on is installed.

Assignment of rights

Clear cache for the rights system

After the rights have been assigned or changed, it is necessary to clear the cache in the i-doit administration under Tenant Management > Repair and clean up so that the changes are adopted by the system.

Calling the add-on#

After all preparations are completed, the add-on can be accessed via Extras > Forms.

Calling the add-on

The view of the "Extras" menu may differ due to different rights and/or additional installed add-ons.
