        We currently create separate events to target different email groups to fake a form. This is not very flexible and limits to all the constraints of the event registration form, such no access control, inability to customize the look, no workflow, need a different event for different forms.
        For things that require file uploads or multipage forms, we use google forms or jotforms.

        Our Forms needs include
        sending forms to specific Membership Levels and/or Saved Searches/Membership Groups,
        file uploads,
        customize the layout of the form,
        multipage navigation,
        if/else logic navigation, and
        access controls/permissions for forms.

        We use forms for feedback and evaluation surveys, award nominations, nominations & elections, program applications, and mentor/mentee applications.

        I need a form app where a completed form goes into member's profile.
        I would be content to use a separate app such as formsite alongside WA if it integrated in that way.

        yes we also need a form function for a variety of things including:
        -sign up for projects or volunteer jobs like a volunteer application form
        - nominations
        - feedback form
        - teacher observation form
        - ceu report form
        - sign up for a mentor form etc

        Thanks for considering it!

        Not 100% sure this fits with the scope of this. We require letters or recommendation for perspective members. Was looking for a way to make them an online form and then attach them to a perspective member's contact record.

        Otherwise a generic forms solution as described above would be great to have.

        Our organization is nearing an exit from Wild Apricot for this very reason. I should not have to use a third party to create user-friendly forms. Membership applications and events are not the only things we do. The common vs. membership vs. event registration fields are not as customization as they should be either.

        I would like a form for members to be able to nominate people for "Professional of the Year", or "Volunteer of the Year".

      • AlexSirota commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We use formstack.com to accomplish this very thing. Works well and integrates quite well with Wild Apricot.

        wufoo, google forms and typeform are other products. While WA works on the vast amount of feature requests in this forum., this is the approach I'd take.

        This is an extremely complex feature request that really would make wild apricot something very different than it is today.

        FORMS!!!!!!!!!!!!! A option to create a form. Even something simple as a "contact us" form. There are other times, I want a form for members to fill out their book information so we can capture the data vs. using an old-fashion Word doc.

      • Jeanne Hoffman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would like to create custom forms within the Wild Apricot platform. This would be nice for the purposes of committee interest forms, etc. Third-party forms are fine, but any use of third-party companies is just that -- third-party and outside of the platform -- opening us up to greater chances of data being compromised. Custom forms are a basic tool for Membership-based software and should be included.

        I can only reiterate previous comments! The need for an in-house form builder that can be customised according to various usage requirements, is paramount to our clients.

      • Peggy Nehmen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        St. Louis Publishers would like a web form that is not part of the registration, too. We want to members to enter their book information and then be able to use the data for an Author page. Right now, we can to copy and paste... it's a slow process.

        I would also like to be able to have the ability to integrate stand-alone forms not linked to an event registration. this would be most helpful to the two organizations that I use WA for. Currently I have to use an outside source like jotform or cognito forms to be able to embed a form on a webpage that can then be used to collect data. there are many such platforms available, but they all cost additional money and the data has to be stored elsewhere. hoping that this is near the top of the list for improvements!

        You need to enable your customers to build forms without the need of a VERY complicated workaround or by paying a third party to do. I would expect most businesses would want a Contact Us form on their website for their customers.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Couldn't agree more! Need a basic form builder for other functions we need for our organisation, ideally with an upload feature also as we need members to be able to submit pictures and documents. Can't believe it's not an out of the box feature in WA.

        We need a form that would allow us to accept payment for lunch or other items.

      • Rebecca commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need a form that would allow parents to purchase items. For example, our parents pay for lunch for the year. They have several options, but they pay once

      • Lisa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate


        I agree this should be an out of the box. Even free website builders offer the ability to easily create various forms. I am paying for this and it has taken me 3 hours and I still can't get a Contact form the way I want it here, which is slightly insane since the free web builder I use for most clients I would have this completed within 5 minutes. I really don't understand how this isn't a priority.
