2013 Year in Review

By Johan Lieu · January 9th, 2014

Well, that was fast. Before we all dive head first into 2014, let’s hit the Pause button for a sec and take a look back at our great 2013 by highlighting four pretty big changes in the world of Wufoo.

Wufoo Integrates With Braintree

Starting the year off right on the heels of our Stripe payment integration, we announced our latest partner in payments—Braintree. One of our first payment integrations that offered support for a wide variety of international currencies, we were really excited that the ability to accept international currencies is now a reality.

Don’t forget—that was just one of many new integrations that we announced in 2013 so be sure to check ‘em all out in the blog and here if you haven’t already.


Five Star Rating Field

We finally were able to launch a field type that’s been requested a crap-ton (yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s a unit of measurement in the Imperial System) by you form fans over the years—the highly vaunted Five Star Rating Field Type. We were thrilled to see this field type in action, whether to simplify the process of filling out feedback forms or to make product reviews as easy as selecting a couple of stars.

Our team worked hard on the front end implementation side of the Five Star Rating Field Type to make sure it was silky smooth and as super responsive to user interaction and we nailed it. We’ve got even more enhancements to this field type coming soon, so keep an eye out.

Enabled SSL/HTTPS By Default For All Accounts

SSL

Another major change that we implemented this year was to enable SSL/HTTPS for all forms and all accounts by default. In a year where awareness about security and information safety has been heightened, we realized that security is an important issue for all of our customers. All forms on all accounts are now HTTPS/SSL enabled by default. It’s something we feel strongly about and wanted to make sure all of our customers’ and users’ information is safe and secure.

Wufoo Integrates With Dropbox

Finally…the biggie. After posting a blog post about our caffeine-fueled/addled Hackathon in which we came up with some pretty cool but hacky features, you guys came out in force and let us know that you wanted these features. Now.

So we took the dino by the horns and created an integration with Dropbox. After wrestling with the integration for a bit and ensuring that it hit our very high standards, we were very happy to announce our Dropbox integration in December.

The response has been wild, with Dropbox quickly becoming one of the most popular Wufoo integrations. We’re still looking to tweak and optimize the Dropbox integration, so the work continues.


2013 was a crazy, wild, and immensely rewarding year for us and we’re extremely grateful to have all of you as customers. All of us here at Wufoo wake up each morning looking to make Wufoo a little bit better, a bit more fun, a bit more delightful, and whole lot more useful for you, our customers. 2014 is shaping up to be even better. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.

Thanks for a great 2013 from all of us here at Wufoo and here’s to 2014!

  2. Can you give us a peek at what to expect for 2014. Folders/ability to organize our forms/reports. Please, please!!

  3. The most important thing we need next is the ability to browse files. You guys only give me 250 meg in my paid account. I can’t believe in this day and age we are still talking less than gigs, but I digress…

    Now I am over quota and the only way for me to delete files is to pull up each and individual form and delete the files that way. Are you kidding me? Windows 95 had more capability! I have over 300 forms with files ranging from 50 Kb to 1 meg each. It will take me HOURS to painstakingly go through each form to erase only those files I do not want.

    Please make this a true feature. Soon.

  5. @Ben/Joy/Dave: Totally hear you guys. We’re looking into all of these features but can’t promise any time lines at the moment.

  6. @Lamar: You’re totally right. It’s a definite pain point and we need to make that better.

  7. Just looked at one of your competitors which I used to use. I left them for you for features. Just went through their stuff and for 1/3 the price of you I get all of your features plus signature, multiselect, drilldowns, number/text/paragraph lists, checkbox grid, responsive forms etc.

    I really did used to love this product but it looks like since you were bought by surveymonkey no real features are coming. Just glimpses and empty promises. We don’t need articles on how to use basic features or how people are using it, you need to catch up on mainstay features in this mobile age.

  8. still waiting for calculations within the forms. Drop downs for quantities are getting quite long… other than that I love Wufoo.
