Need to Create a Form?

I just came across a really cool form builder called Wufoo. If you are familiar with Google Docs, then you may know that you can easily create forms there. Wufoo, however, is like the Google Docs form builder on steroids. You can use it to collect and analyze data, or even collect donations (although the latter is only available with a paid plan). As an instructor, use Wufoo to collect info from students, RSVP for class events, create a visually-appealing quiz, etc.

When you first login to Wufoo, you’ll immediately be able to create and start editing a form. As you click through the options, pop-ups will appear to guide you.

To create fields, you can either choose from a predetermined list (i.e. name, address, phone, etc.), or create your own based on field criteria (i.e. single line text, checkbox, dropdown, etc.).

Once your form is created, you can edit the look by changing colors and/or themes. If you want, you can choose to be notified via email, mobile device, or RSS when someone fills out the form. When you’re ready to start collecting entries, you can choose to do so by getting a link that you can share, embedding the form in a website or blog, or sending it as an email directly from Wufoo.

The most useful part of Wufoo is the ability to analyze data from your form entries. You can create reports complete with graphs, charts, and/or grids. Descriptive text can be added as well.

The free version of Wufoo allows 1 user to create 3 forms with up to 10 fields, 3 reports, and collect up to 100 entries per month. Click here for a quick tour of Wufoo.
