Getting data into pipelines can be hard. Instead of wrangling APIs and chatops, you can now add custom forms directly to your Buildkite pipelines 🙌🏻 Getting input from your team has never been easier.

We even used it to automate our team’s Secret Santa 😄🎄🎅🏼
- block: "Question!" prompt: "Please answer this important question" fields: - text: "What day is it today?" key: "day-of-the-week"
The data that the user enters into the form is then available on subsequent steps from the build meta-data! 😱
