Incorporate form design and submission functionality. This would help clubs automate some administrative processes.
Tiffany, thanks for sharing!
Eveyrone, FYI - the correct link to the form Tiffany refers to is http://www.vastereducation.memberlodge.com/Default.aspx?pageId=1127247 (the one she posted contained a session ID so it has expired)
Thanks for sharing!
Try JotForm: http://www.jotform.com
Not as fancy as wufoo, but less limiting and the free account is pretty generous
"JotForm is a free web form builder. For basic usage, upto 100 submissions/month, you can use JotForm fully. No crippleware. No ads."
Unlimited forms, some groovy tools for surveys and all sorts and even payment integration if you need it.
I use a number of forms on my site and have no complaints and I reckon it will be a while before I need to upgrade!
Thanks, appreciate the feedback. But creating a (user-friendly and flexible) custom form generate is not a low hanging fruit unfortunately :-)
I support this feature request.
Why? In the most simple incarnation it's a contact form - how much time and effort does it take to code a simple contact form? Not much. The recommendation is to use wufoo... come on, really? For the $$$ that my organization is paying this should be native to the capabilities. Yes, this is possible for free on wufoo. It's incredible - but this is a "work around" on wildapricot. Need an Example: https://examples.wufoo.com/forms/contact-form/
In a more complicated (and this is a stretch to call it more complicated) - I'd like a contact form to have a pull down menu for contacting different groups/departments/etc and route the email to the person/group. This capability is also available on wufoo - for a fee because it requires rules. Now, i'm going to have to pay a minimum of $14/month on top of the WA fees to create a simple form to route email - because WA doesn't support it. Need an Example: http://www.ccpaaastore.org/store.php?contact=page (see Department drop down)
WA - This is low hanging fruit - lets get it implemented and declare success.
FYI - you can add embed standard HTML forms or externally hosted forms.
We also need web forms. Will use for applications to become a facilitator for our program and for general comments. This is another surprise for us–that this very standard interface element is not supported by wildapricots. For us, the data doesn't necessarily need to be stored, but just emailed. Hope you consider this upgrade.
One specific example we could use this for...
We host club sales twice a year and have historically used a form on our site (before we switched to WA) that would allow people to submit an application to become a sale vendor. The form was relatively simple (text field for name, text box for description of products, etc.) and submitted an email to our sale coordinator with all of this information.
Ideally this would work like a custom widget with a settings panel/dialog box to setup the fields and input the email address to submit to. The web admin would then just have to add the widget to any page and configure it.
A bonus would be a text box that could replace the widget once a form is submitted so the user knows that the form submitted successfully.
I would appreciate comments from other users, especialy:
- specific examples of forms
- how form results should be stored/viewed.
It would really be nice to be able to create web forms that are not a part of a registration process. I would like to be able to create stand-a-lone administrative forms for data input. I currently use jotform to create forms, and then use an iframe to input the form into my WA forms. I'm not crazy about this because the data is stored outside of WA and I like to have everything in one place. I currently have a form that I complete for projects that we are currently working on. I have such fields as start and end dates, contact person, Important Notes, etc. Another example would be a Contact Us form. I have an iframe from jotform for my Contact Us form, and my data from the form comes to us via email but the form details is stored in jotform. It would just be nice to have everything under one roof. Thank you.
