Cloud Forms

Design content type schemas and forms within Cloud CMS and then surface them within your own web sites or hosted servers. Forms render and save data back to Cloud CMS for instant reporting and data capture. Cloud CMS data lists record data entries. Export your data from Cloud CMS to ZIP, PDF and CSV.

Access from any Web Site

The Cloud CMS Forms plugin runs on any web site and utilizes the AlpacaJS forms engine to provide a rich front-end experience.


Drag and Drop Visual Designer

Cloud CMS features a drag-and-drop visual designer that lets you quickly assemble complex JSON schema documents for your content types. Content types enjoy all the benefits of Cloud CMS, including inheritance, features, aspect-oriented behaviors and automatic workflow integration for lifecycle approval.

Data Lists

Capture the responses from your end users into data lists. Data lists allow you to see all of the form entries in a single place, comparing them row-by-row. Sort by individual fields or export to third-party programs such as Microsoft Excel.


40+ controls, dozens of layouts and solid browser support

Cloud Forms provides a wide array of customizable controls, complete with documentation and examples. Customize fields to match the expectations of your end users. Edit Handlebars files to modify the layout further, expressing exact formatting as needed.

Deliver to Web and Mobile

Cloud Forms run on both web and mobile devices, letting you define your content types once and provision them across lots of different form factors and applications at once. Capture your data in a single place and reduce your development effort.
