There's so much you can do with a form. With just plain text fields and bullet points, you could make a pop quiz for your students, a contact form for your website, a survey about what your fans would like to see in your next product, and so much more.
But first, you'll have to make a form, and that's where it's so easy to stop. Wufoo aims to make it easy enough to make a form, you'll never have to second-guess whether you really need to make a form or not. It gives you the tools to quickly put together forms, and take them beyond being just a form by adding file uploads, payment fields, and more.
Wufoo's one of the form apps that's been around the longest, so chances are you've heard of it already. And if you've used it years ago, you'll likely still know your way around the latest version without much trouble.
Best of all, you don't even need an account to try out Wufoo. Just go to the Wufoo Form Builder Demo, and you'll get to try out the full Wufoo form editor. There's the elements you can use in your form on the left, and a blank space on the right to create your form. Drag the items you want from the right to the left, then select them to tweak their settings and text. You can add everything from text and multiple choice fields to file uploads, pricing, rating blocks, and more. Once you're done, you can signup for an account to save your form and create more.
Once you've created your account, you'll see a listing of each of your forms whenever you login to Wufoo. Select one to see its entries and analytics, change notifications settings, setup rules to make form fields dynamic based on previous entries, enable PayPal or Authorize.net payments, and more. This way, Wufoo keeps the main form editor focused on just the parts and pieces of your form, while letting you dig into the deeper settings once you've laid out your form.
Your forms aren't just designed to stay at Wufoo, though—you'll also want to put them in your website and share them with your followers. You can copy your form's embed code from Wufoo, and paste that into your site, and your form will be ready for anyone to fill out in minutes. Then, be sure to open the Wufoo theme designer to tweak your form's fonts and colors to make it match your design. If you have a Typekit account, you can even add your Typekit credentials to use the same typefaces in your form as you do on your site.
There's so many ways you could put a form to use, you've likely already got your own form ideas that you're ready to implement—but perhaps not. If that's the case, be sure to check the Wufoo Gallery page, where you'll find great ideas of how to put Wufoo to work in your business. Best of all, you can import the form to your account in one click, tweak it for your needs, then start using it minutes later.
For a traditional form editor that's easy to use and yet packed with all the features you need, it's hard to go wrong with Wufoo. You can use it to create everything from free contact form when you're getting started to advanced order forms and surveys once your business is off the ground.
