HOC Release Notes (Jan 20, 2022)

Release was a minor release with internal fixes only. as a few minor b ug fixes and a couple of new features for CMS users.

Forms can now display a Cancel Button (HOC3-14457)

The bottom of a form generally displays a SUBMIT button which submits the form.  The Submit button can be renamed by changing it's label.

There is now an option to also display a CANCEL button.  If you include the cancel button you have the option of changing its label from Cancel to something else (for example "Never Mind").  By default, when a user presses the cancel button they will be taken back to the page they were on previously.  You have the option though, to set a custom URL you wish the user to be taken to (like the home page /). if you wish.

These options are visible when you select the SSubmit field in the form:

Notification Center
Forms can choose to display or not display a popup message upon submission (HOC3-154014)

The normal behavior of forms is that when the user submits the form, a pop-up dialog appears saying that the form has successfully been submitted.  There is also an option available where no pop-up appears (i.e. nothing confirms the form has been successfully submitted.

When defining the form you'll be asked to select a "Form Success Message Type"

Choose "No Success page/Pop-up Confirmation Message" for the standard of a pop-up indicating success.

Choose "No Success page/No Confirmation Message" to suppress any notification that the form has been submitted.   (This option may be confusing to users unless its used in conjunction with a redirect after submission, as it will appear as if nothing has happened).

Notification Center

This is the standard pop-up confirmation message:


There will eventually be two more options available for the form success message type:

1) No Success Page / Auto-close (10s) confirmation message

- This option displays the confirmation message for 10 seconds and then auto-closes it so that the user doesn't have to click the OK button.

2). Success Confirmation Page with confirmation message

- This option replaces the pop-up confirmation message, with a page  instead of a pop-up.   By default it will display the same Success message, but it can be edited to display a custom message of your choosing. Essentially it allows for creating a 'success' page with any content you desire.

At this time, these two options are in beta.  If you wish your form to use either the auto-close pop-up, or the custom success message, please submit a case to the support center and we can configure your form to use one of these two additional options.


Forms now have an option to 'save and complete later" ()HOC3-15317)

If you are creating long forms, or forms that may require a user to get additional materials, there is now an option to save a form and complete it later.   In this case, the user can return to a partially completed form and add more information at a later date.


When this option is selected, the form will have an additional button allowing the form to be saved for later completion:


Additional options for payment component in forms (HOC3-14893)

For those users using the payment component in forms for something other than standard donations (i.e. like a form creating shopping cart functionality), its now possible to have the component hide the pay amount fields and the oay with image.

This makes it possible to allow a simple display of fields or simply a payment button when the amount is known.

Calendar Pickers now locale specific. for week start day (HOC3-14925)

The calendar pickers in HOC tend to show Sunday as the first day of the week (as is the case in the U.S.).  For international clients, the calendars will now start on Monday in countries where that is the norm.

Bug Fix:  Issues with uploading files with a comma in their name, via forms in Chrome (HOC3-15205)

When using a CMS form, an end-user uploads a file with a name that contains a comma (","), the Chrome browser has a known issue that ignores everything after the command and sends the user to an error page.

To solve this issue, once a file is uploaded from a custom form comma(,) characters will be replaced by underscore to prevent the chrome bug from sending the user an error message.
