We update our development plan each quarter, reviewing and updating you on what has been completed, and selecting the most relevant items from the backlog for upcoming development. All of our releases are listed in our Statuspage and our full history is documented below.
Expanded Publishing Options
We’re hard at work creating functionality that will allow you to publish ProForma forms to Confluence pages and other webpages. Users will be able to open and fill out the forms and when the form is submitted, a new Jira issue will be automatically created.
Reworking the Form Builder
We’ll also be improving the form builder, adding more formatting options (columns, tables, etc.) to make it easy for you to create powerful, user-friendly forms.
Leave Form Open after Request Created – 02 September 2019 – A form setting allows you keep forms open (editable) even after the customer creates the request. Use this feature for long forms that need to be filled out in stages, or for iterative processes with a lot of feedback going back and forth.
Email, URL and User Lookup Question Types, Regex Pattern Matching – 28 August 2019 – The form builder now includes email and url question types, as well as the ability to validate text fields with Regex pattern matching.
Pull External Data for Lookup Questions – 1 August 2019 – ProForma now integrates with third-party APIs, allowing you to pull external data to populate choice lists on forms.
Create and Attach PDF on Submit – 11 July 2019 – Use this form setting to automatically create and attach PDFs of a form when it’s submitted.
Integration with Configuration Manager – 3 July 2019 – ProForma (Server) now supports Configuration Manager for Jira (version 6.3.4+), allowing you to easily migrate form designs from one project or instance to another project or Jira-instance.
ProForma for Data Center – 31 May 2019 – The Data Center version of ProForma, with full feature parity, is now available in the Atlassian Marketplace.
Integration with Refined Structure and Theme JSD – 29 Aprril 2019 – ProForma now integrates with Refined Structure and Theme, allowing you to create a useful, branded portal that collect all the data service agents need.
Form Automation – 8 April 2019 – The form builder now lets you set rules to: automatically add a form when an issue transitions to a designated status, automatically transition an issue when a form is submitted, prevent an issue from being transitioned if a designated form(s) has not been submitted.
Support for Jira 8 and JSD 4 – 4 February 2019 – Support for Jira 8 and JSD 4 (Server); fixed compatibility issue with Refined Theme; allows users to add forms to an issue if they have permission to access the issue, but not the project.
Issue Forms – 5 December 2018 – Issue forms allow you to create Jira issues directly from a ProForma form (rather than adding the form to an existing issue). Users can access forms from the Jira navigation bar and an issue is created once the form is submitted. This is a great way to ensure that you get all of the needed information when a new issue is created.
ProForma Lite – 05 September 2018 –We released ProForma Lite, a limited version of ProForma that you can install and use for free. ProForma Lite includes all of ProForma features and lets you create up to 3 forms without subscribing to ProForma or purchasing a ProForma license.
Dynamic Fields – 03 September 2018 – The ProForma form builder has been upgraded with dynamic fields, allowing you to use conditional logic to show or hide form sections depending on the response to a previous question.
Form Builder Upgrade – 16 August 2018 – The ProForma form builder has been upgraded to allow you to move sections and questions within a form.
Internal/External Forms – 2 August 2018 – Agents can now set forms as either internal (accessible only from the issue) or external (accessible from the issue and the JSD portal). A single request can include multiple forms on the portal, and forms which have been submitted can be edited from the portal
ProForma for Jira Server, No Docker Required – 03 May 2018, ProForma for Jira Server no longer requires Docker to run! ProForma has been reengineered to run natively within Jira, making the installation and setup process much simpler

Export form responses – 17 November 2017 You can now export form data to a spreadsheet.
Linking to Jira fields – 10 October 2017 – We’re pleased to say that with 2.0 you can link fields in your forms to Jira fields. When the content of a field is changed in the form, it will also update the linked Jira field empowering teams to leverage JQL and Jira reports for managing and measuring their processes.
Validation – 10 October 2017 – Validation rules can now be set for any form field, allowing your teams to control the information they collect and enforce business rules.
