Conditional Logic, based on an earlier value on page 1, then page 2 can show different stuff, there is a conditional module that allows same page conditionals

Download Range, only download new submissions

Form Builder Integration - works and is stable

5 Tips and Tricks

Node clone - Clone content (have an umpublished node webform to use as a template)

Node Export - Export on Dev and import on production

Options Element (key value pair UI that is friendly)

Use hidden fields - keep track of information, (for example: current url, for there is a bug on this page)

Hidden fields can be marked as secure so they are never sent to the browser

Use %get tokens to set default values

Use mime mail to sent attachements and HTML emails with webform

Hands on Demo
