How to Make Those Forms of Yours Personal with Templating

By Aubriane Taylor · June 3rd, 2014

Ready to get personal? With those online forms of yours, that is. Good, because we’re amped to show you the ins and outs of our groovy Templating feature so that you can make your forms more personal in a (sometimes) impersonal digital world. So Templating…What are we talking about exactly?

Let’s go back to the world of event planning and RSVPs, shall we? Say you’re following the advice of our fellow tips blogger, Kane, when planning that wedding extravaganza. You’re using Wufoo to rush along the invite process so you can dish out that delish free food. Being the planning pro that you are, you want to confirm your guests’ RSVPs with a message that includes what meal John or Sally chose, which inbox to check for the confirmation email, and (just for the fun of it) their specific ID number.

We’ll use Templating to make all of this happen! Seriously—it’s fast, easy and fun.

Okay…but how?

First: the form. We’ll follow Johan’s guidance, and set up the entire form first. A few fields to ask who they are, if they’re coming, their preferred menu, and if they’ll bring a plus one:

We’ve set up a few field rules so that we can dynamically show follow-up fields based on the user’s response. What’s a Wufoo form without some Wufoo magic?

Now, here’s the really fun part. We’re going to set up a confirmation page specific to each user’s RSVP, which includes all of the details they just typed in.

1. Find your Field IDs

There are a couple of links that will always pop up when you set up your confirmation options—whether it’s a redirect, a confirmation email, a notification email, whatever. The two links you’ll see are known as Templating Options, and Template Tags (aka API Settings):

Templating Options will take you to our Help page on the templating feature, and Template Tags will take you to the “key” for the field identifiers in your form. Now, here’s the key for the form we just created:

In your case, we’ll want to use our friend’s first name (field 1), their email address (field 5), and their chosen menu (field 6). We’ll also use the entry ID, since we want the user to know their place in the list.

2. Plug in your Template Tags

When you’re putting together your templated text, the default format for a template tag is {entry:Field#}, where “#” is the number of the field I want populated. This changes a bit for “system fields” like the entry ID, but still the same idea: {entry:EntryId}. The tags are case-specific, so make sure you type it exactly as it appears!

Here’s the code you’ll use:

Awesome, {entry:Field1}!! We are so excited to see you on our special day. We’re sending the full details to {entry:Field5} as we speak.

We’ll see you July 20th—-come ready to eat {entry:Field6}, show off your epic dance moves, and make totally merry with us.

PS. You’re #{entry:EntryId} on the guest list.

3. Sit back and watch the magic happen

Here’s the confirmation page I see after I RSVP:

And that’s all there is to it. Each new user to fill out your form will see a confirmation page tailored specifically to them—spooky fun, right?

You can also follow the same concept in confirmation emails, form rules, notifications of new entries, or (to a limited degree) redirects to another site. Outside the world of the hallowed RSVPs, just think of all the other possibilities—order numbers, event registrations, mad libs for your friends…we could go on and on.

I’ll be keeping a hawk’s eye on the comments below for brainstorming of cool ways to use templating in your form. Feel free to drop any questions you might have below!


Back To Basics: The Amazing Activity Log

By Johan Lieu · May 29th, 2014

In this edition of our Back To Basics series, we’re going to take a quick look at an under appreciated Wufoo feature, the Activity Log. As always, the Back to Basic series is geared toward newer Wufoo customers who might not yet be familiar with the wide variety and breadth of Wufoo features. If you’re a Wufoo Vet, this might be a bit too basic for you, but if you do stick around, I bet you’ll still be able to learn a thing or three!

If you’ve ever wondered or needed to remember what exactly you did in your Wufoo account, the Activity Log is your friend. To access the Activity Log, simply head to your Account page and click the button in the top right labeled, “Activity Log”. This’ll take you to a page that looks suspiciously like a log of all of your account’s activity that runs in reverse chronological order, which is exactly what it is!

From this page you’ll be able to view all of the activity that has occurred in your account for the past 45 days. This log is super powerful and useful especially if you have many sub-users on your account (which we talked about creating in our last Back To Basics post about User Management). From within the Activity Logs, you’ll be able to view information about:

  • Forms: You’ll be able to see what users created, edited, or deleted forms from your account and when they did so. You’ll also be able to see when themes are changed for a form or when a form has become inactive.
  • Entries: Rather than overload the Activity Log with each entry submitted, you can view when your entries are edited or deleted.
  • Reports: You’ll be able to see when reports are created, edited, or deleted and by what users. You’ll also be able to keep track of when passwords are turned on and off for reports.
  • Themes: You’ll be able to see when themes are created, edited, or deleted as well as who did it.
  • User Activity: You’ll be able to find out when a user logs in or out of your account.
  • Account Activity: We keep track of whenever your account upgrades, downgrades its subscription plan, and whenever you change your billing information.

As you can see, the Activity Log is your go-to tool whenever you need to remember when you did something related to your Wufoo account, or when you’re trying to figure who’s responsible for that really ugly theme (not me!) and when they did it. It’s great for troubleshooting changes to your forms and it’s also especially handy when you have many users on your account.

Need more information about the Activity Log? View our help documentation about it here. If you’ve got other nifty tips or tricks when using the Activity Log, feel free to share it with the rest of the Wufoo community below!


How to Stay on Top of Leads with ClinchPad and Wufoo

By Cheenu Madan · May 21st, 2014

We’re going to make an educated guess here—keeping your business thriving is probably a top priority, right? Well, collecting sales leads using your Wufoo form is just the first step to make sure you stay #1.

Next? Follow up and convert the prospect into a customer. Using a sales CRM to keep track of your sales leads can dramatically increase your team’s chances of converting a prospect into a customer. Win-win for everyone!

ClinchPad is a modern CRM system which unlike traditional CRM software focuses on deals rather than contacts. Our main focus is on managing your sales pipeline through an intuitive visual interface. We target small teams looking for simple solutions for managing their business leads over large-scale sales teams.

ClinchPad is free to use for tracking up to 100 leads and our pricing is super economical to boot. Entering data into a CRM system is tedious and often a significant barrier to CRM adoption. ClinchPad eliminates the need to re-enter data captured in Wufoo forms. Instead, you can automatically convert them into leads in ClinchPad.

How to Use This Integration

  1. To get started with integrating Wufoo with ClinchPad, click on Settings from the top menu.

  2. Select Integrations from the left menu.

  3. Scroll down until you find Wufoo and click on Manage Integration.

  4. Click on Integrate New Form. Fill in the Form Name exactly as it appears in Wufoo in the popup that appears. A Wufoo label Name is shown, circled. If you’d like whatever is entered in this Wufoo field to be the Lead Name in ClinchPad, enter the label Name in the Lead Name textbox.

  5. Similarly, do the same for Contacts, Products, Zones and Sources if applicable and select a Pipeline and Stage where the Lead should be created in.

  6. After you create a form, use the highlighted URL and handshake key when you create a Webhook in Wufoo. You can find a guide to creating webhooks in Wufoo here.

Once done, you should see Leads being created in ClinchPad whenever your Wufoo form is submitted. There you have it—clinch that top spot thanks to our sweet integration.

If you run into any problems integrating your Wufoo forms with ClinchPad, we’d be happy to help! Email us support@clinchpad.com

    How to Build a Rapport with Reports

    By Kane Stanley · May 6th, 2014

    I’ve never been to a wedding I didn’t enjoy. They’re brilliant. You have a bit of free food, get a dance in there, meet some people, listen to a few speeches and then you’re done. Not all of them go completely to plan, but for the most part they’re usually a success.

    Planning that kind of success can sometimes be a real bother but it’s cool. Wufoo is always here to make things that much easier for you. With those summer weddings on the horizon, today I’m going to take you through how to use a Wufoo form and a report to turn the RSVPester process into a RSVParty.

    First we have to make the RSVP form. Luckily we make that mega easy for you, because there’s a template for it. It’s no secret that we have loads of form templates to choose from and a wedding invitation is just one of those.

    Check out our wedding template.

    Once you’ve added that to your account, you can edit it as much as you’d like. I doubt all of you are called Mike and Jenny so I’m sure that will be changed around a bit. Then send that form out there for people to RSVP.

    After a while, you’ll realize that you have a bunch of entries to your form and you need to make some sense of it all. This is where the reports come in. We can build a great report to make reading all of this data super easy and make planning your wedding a bit less stressful.

    To get to the reports section of your account, you simply click the Reports tab at the top of your page when logged in. Let’s start with who’s coming shall we? For this we can use a few Number Widgets. These nifty widgets will do a simple total count of an option in a field. Perfect when you want to know how many people are coming to your wedding. After creating your new report, click the “Add Widgets” tab and you can add your widgets from there. We have Yes, No, Naybe and guests options so we’ll need four number widgets.

    Lovely jubbly. Now we’ll know exactly how many people are coming to the wedding without having to do any annoying manual counting. Hang on a minute, I said that I loved that I get a bit of free food at weddings. How do we know how much food to get?

    Let’s use a bar graph for this one. This will let us see all of the options from a field together in one widget rather than getting a count on them separately. When you add a graph widget to a report, you have the choice of using a bar, line or pie graph. A bar graph will be our best bet here.

    Brilliant. Now we know how many people are coming to the wedding and exactly what they want to eat. You’ll want to make another graph for the guests food as well. You can probably feel the wedding planning stress falling away as you read this.

    Now, what if we actually want to see a breakdown of all the people coming to the wedding with all of the information from their entry? The number count and food count do tell you a lot, but they don’t tell you if the embarrassing uncle that tells awkward jokes will be there. The datagrid widget will though! The datagrid widget will essentially show you each entry in a big list, which is nice if you want to see the names of everyone coming to your wedding.

    Now that we have all of that together, let’s have a look at the report. Remember that you can use your themes in the report as well so you can make it look as fancy as you want.

    Doesn’t that look nice? Apparently my wedding is pretty small and I’ll need to have a word with the two people that are washing their hair that night, but there you have it.

    If you’re getting married, relieve a bit of stress by sending out your RSVP’s through Wufoo. You’ll want to marry us when you’re done.

    Questions for Kane? Marriage proposals optional. ;)


    How to Create Practice Quizzes & Tests With Wufoo

    By Johan Lieu · May 1st, 2014

    The number of things you can use Wufoo for far outnumbers the amount of stars in the Milky Way (it does not but it’s a lot!) and I’ll be showing you just one more cool thing you can do with Wufoo. This time we’re going to use Wufoo to create a practice test (or quiz if you’re so inclined) that students can use during studying to help prepare for their exams.

    Let’s get started!

    1. Create Your Test

    The first thing we need to do is create the form for our test. For our example, we’re going to be creating a test about the American Revolution (or if you’re like our very own Kane Stanley, you know it as the American Rebellion). Plus, I’m actually a U.S. History major (Go UCLA!) so this is me totally geeking out here.

    Anyhow, the best way to begin creating your test is by laying out all of the questions for your test first. We’ll layer in the section breaks and rules once that’s all in place.

    For your questions, I suggest using the multiple choice field type for best results and keeping the number of question options to three. When you’re finished, you should have something that looks like this:

    One last thing we need to do is for each question, we want to unselect the radio button so that no answer is selected by default. Other than being a downer if the correct answer is already selected, it also messes with our rules, so make sure you unselect any radio buttons for each of your questions.

    2. Add Those Section Breaks

    Since our students will be using this practice test to help them study, we should give them feedback as they give their answers so they can learn as they go. To do this, we’ll be using the amazing section break to give instant feedback to the test taker as they answer each question.

    Head back to the Form Builder of your test and this time, we’re going to be layering in section breaks for each question. We’re going to place two section breaks before each question, one that displays if the answer is correct and one that displays if the answer is incorrect.

    Take a look at our example.

    As you can see, I’ve added two section breaks ahead of each question. I added some styling to display the correct section break as green and incorrect ones as red. I also added some context to reinforce why each section break was displaying (showing background information for the correct answer and info about which question was incorrect).

    Now that we’ve created these two section breaks for each question in your test, it’s time to add some real magic and use our handy-dandy Rules feature. Why? Read on!

    3. Field Rules Make Everything Better

    Now that you’ve navigated to the Rules Builder for your test, we’re going to create some Field Rules to show and hide those section breaks on your test. It’s no fun if the answers are shown ahead of time.

    For each question, we’ll be creating two field rules. The first rule we’ll create will let you show the correct answer section break if the answer to the question is correct. The second rule we’ll create will allow you to show the incorrect answer section break, if the answer to that question is wrong. You can see two such rules here:

    The first rule is set to show the correct answer section break for Question #1 if the answer is correct. And the second rule is setup to show the incorrect answer section break if the answer to the question is any of the two other answers.

    As you can imagine, the number of section breaks can get out of hand if you’re creating a fairly long form, which is why we setup the form so that the section breaks appear before each question. It not only helps the student who is taking the test to see if their answer is correct, but it also helps you as the form creator when we setup the test. How so? All of your fields will show up in order in the Rule Builder:

    As you can see, the corresponding section breaks for Question #1 appear above it, the section breaks for Question #2 appear before Question #2, and so on. It just helps when you’re setting up complex rules to set it up your fields like this. Now, setup all of the section break rules for each of your questions and save your rules.


    That’s it! Your test is now setup. Your students can take advantage of these practice quizzes by testing their knowledge and get instant feedback on how they’re doing, i.e. is there more study time on the horizon or no? The Field Rules you’ve added will easily display messages to the student as well so they can teach and empower themselves as they go. Want to see this form in action? No problem. You can view this form here.

    And this isn’t limited to just educators either. Creating these practice forms and quizzes can be incredibly useful for companies too. For example, those that have internal training programs, for testing employees on new processes, or any number of other use cases.

    Got a good use case for using Wufoo as a testing platform? Let us know in the Comments below!


    Stripe Subscription Billing Is Here!

    By Johan Lieu · April 24th, 2014

    It’s finally here. No, I’m not kidding. I wouldn’t kid about something like this. I wouldn’t toy with your emotions like that. I’ll just cut to the chase; starting today, you can now use Wufoo along with your Stripe account to create subscription (née recurring) plans for your customers. We know it’s something many of you have been looking forward to for a long time (apologizes in advance for the long delay!) but Stripe subscription billing is here.

    Let’s jump right in and see how we can get your Wufoo forms setup with Stripe subscriptions!

    How To Use This Integration

    1. Create Your Subscription Plans In Stripe

    To start creating subscription plans for your customers with Stripe, you’ll first need to create the subscription plans themselves in Stripe. To do this, simply log in to your Stripe account and navigate your way to the Stripe Dashboard. From there, click the navigation button labeled, “Plans”.

    Click the “Create Your First Plan” button and a small dialog will appear that asks you to enter details for your plan. This is where the juicy stuff happens! In our example above, I need to create a monthly plan and an annual plan to fulfill my destiny of world domination via house cleaning. To create your subscription plan, you’ll need to enter in:

    • A Plan ID: This is just an arbitrary ID for your plan. We suggest using the name of your plan and separating the words with underscores.
    • Name: This is the name that your customers will see. You should make this super easy to understand and read. In my example, I named it “Monthly Cleaning Plan”. Simple, right?
    • Amount: This is the amount that you will be charging for each subscription interval. In this case, it’s $100 for monthly and $1000 for annual. (Hey, I’m not cheap, my cleanings services are top notch and totally worth it!)
    • Currency: This is the currency you want to accept payments in.
    • Interval: This is the frequency of your plan. In my case, I’d select monthly. For my annual plan, I would choose annual.
    • Trial period days: In the event that you’d like to offer a trial period for your subscriptions, you can enter in the number of days for the trial. Wufoo’s Stripe Subscription Billing supports trial periods, but that’s another blog post for another time. But trust me when I say it’s awesome.
    • Statement description: This is what shows up on your customer’s credit card bills. Keep it to 15 characters or less and no spaces.

    Once you enter in your details for your plan, click the Create plan button and boom, you’re set. Create as many plans as you need, all in the same manner. Once you’re done, it’s time to head back to Wufoo and hook up your form with your Stripe Subscription Plans.

    2. Setup Your Form

    Well, of course, right? Simply head to the Form Builder and create your lovely Wufoo form that your customers will fill out. For our example here, I’ve created a form for my fictional (or is it?) cleaning company.

    You can see that my form consists of some contact fields at the bottom (a name field, an email field, and an address field for my records).

    But the interesting field is the first one, a multiple choice field. I’ve named this field the totally original, “Subscription Plans”. This field has two choices, one that is labeled “Monthly Plan, $100/month” and one labeled “Annual Plan, $1000/year — 17% Savings!”. Each of these choices directly correspond with a Stripe subscription plan in my Stripe account. For my annual plan, I even added a line about the savings of choosing the annual plan. You should make sure the labels for your choices in the form correspond with the names of the plans you created in Stripe. Nothing more confusing that selecting a plan that doesn’t match with what you think.

    Note: Stripe Subscription Billing will only work with Multiple Choice or Drop Down Menu field types. If you want to use subscriptions, you’ll need to use one of these two field types.

    Now, when someone selects one of these options and pays, a subscription profile will be created in Stripe for that customer and will be renewed for each billing period. If a customer wants my expertise in cleaning their house and wants to pay each month, they can select the Monthly Plan option and each month Stripe will charge their credit card. Easy-peasy.

    But I get ahead of myself. The next step after creating your form is to create subscription plans within Stripe itself.

    3. Connect Your Wufoo Form To Your Stripe Account & Plans

    Now that we have a form in Wufoo, and subscription plans in Stripe, it’s time to connect the two. To do this, simply head to the Payment Settings for your form.

    Once there, select “Stripe Subscription” from the Select A Merchant drop down menu. One click of the “Connect With Stripe” button will make a dialog box appear. From here you can choose to create a Stripe account, log in with your Stripe account, or if you’ve previously used Stripe on one of your forms, you can select that Stripe account from the drop down menu to speed up set up.

    After you connect your Stripe account, it’s time to connect your form to your Stripe subscription plans. In the third panel on the right, you can select which field you’d like to assign your plans to. Remember, you can only setup Stripe subscription plans with multiple choice or drop down menu field types. If your form doesn’t have one of those fields on it, you won’t see anything here.

    In our example, we choose the multiple choice field titled “Subscription Plans” from my cleaning form. Now we can associate each field choice with a specific plan. Here, I’ve associated the “Monthly Plan” option with the Monthly Plan I created in Stripe, and ditto for the “Annual Plan”. Hit the “Save Settings” button, and you’re all set to begin to receive payments and renew your customers without any work at all.

    4. Managing Your Stripe Subscriptions

    In the event you need to refund a customer or cancel their subscription (hey, cleaning houses is a subjective thing, people might not be happy), you can do this by visiting the same Stripe Dashboard where we setup our plans. From there you can visit the Payments page which lists all of the payments you’ve received. Simply hover over the transactions you’d like to refund and click the refund link. A small dialog box will appear asking you how much you’d like to refund, hit the Refund button, and your refund is set.

    If you’d like to cancel a customer’s subscription, you’ll need to navigate to the Customers page. This page lists all of your customers and it’s here where you can dig into a specific customer to cancel their plan, refund them, or even delete their entire profile if you need. Basically, all management of your customers and their subscriptions and payments is done through the Stripe Dashboard. It’s super powerful, but tread lightly; things get real serious in there.


    There you have it! You can now accept Stripe subscriptions from your customers through your Wufoo forms which automatically renew through Stripe. We’re ridiculously excited to release this feature and hope you, our awesome Wufoo customers, can find unique and novel ways to use Wufoo & Stripe together to make accepting payments even easier so you can get back to doing what you love rather than worrying about forms, payments, or subscriptions.

    As always, if you have any questions, comments, or notes, please leave them below. And if you want to comment about how we’ve finally rolled this out, that works too. We won’t hold it against you. :) Either way, thanks for being Wufoo customers and being awesome.


    Answering Prayers with Wufoo for Daystar Television Network

    By Daniel Woodward · April 17th, 2014

    Our customer spotlight is shining full force today on Daystar Television Network, form friends. Daystar is an award-winning, faith-based network that broadcasts 24/7 all around the globe and through as many media formats as possible.

    As a result of their incredible hard work, the network reaches over a staggering 104 million households in the United States and 2 billion+ people worldwide.

    Daystar is the fastest growing faith-based TV network in the world and we’re honored to have Daniel Woodward, Director of Marketing, visit our humble blog to share their Wufoo story.

    Welcome, Daniel! Tell us—How’ve you guys been using Wufoo?

    We use Wufoo for all of the day-to-day stuff you’d expect like registrations for upcoming conferences but recently we started using forms for something a little bit unexpected—online prayer requests. Prayer is very important to all of us here at Daystar so reliability was key in our decision to go with Wufoo. That form connects to Zapier and to a help desk. This workflow ensures that we get back to people in a timely manner and let them know that we’re praying for them.

    There’s custom code in place that flags emergency situations for us such as if a person submits a form saying they’re thinking about hurting themselves. This allows us to react quickly especially during peak times when our phone lines may be tied up. We also use Wufoo’s API to pull the prayer requests for use on air.

    How has Wufoo changed the way you do business?

    It’s truly helped the Marketing and Partner Services teams here at Daystar focus on what’s most important—our customers’ experience. We’ve also been able to concentrate on expanding and improving upon our integrations rather than waste a ton of precious time and money on development resources typically associated with building forms from scratch. Then there’s the question of making sure that they’re working properly. We don’t have those kinds of worries with the simplicity of Wufoo forms.

    What’s been your favorite experience so far?

    Reliability and consistency is super key. In other words, I know that Wufoo will just always work. In the past, I’d used plugins and other services and when you go that route, you’re constantly worrying that a single update will end up destroying all of your hard work and annoy your customer base. That’s really been the whole team’s favorite experience.

    I mean, Wufoo is pretty rad. People still say that, right?

    We say it a lot around here, Daniel. Thanks for coming by, it’s most certainly been rad and don’t be shy. Send him your questions and comments below.

    Heartbleed: A Note From Wufoo

    By Johan Lieu · April 11th, 2014

    On April 7, 2014, researchers disclosed a vulnerability in a technology called OpenSSL that powers encryption across much of the internet. The vulnerability is commonly known as the “OpenSSL Heartbleed Flaw.”

    Our team took immediate action to secure Wufoo’s infrastructure against this flaw. We closed any exposure that might have existed and now want to let you know that Wufoo is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed flaw.

    Although we have no reason to believe that any part of our service has been improperly accessed due to this vulnerability, as a matter of best practice we would like to recommend that all our customers reset their passwords. To reset your password, here’s what you do: Go to the User Management section. Once you’re in the User Management section, click on the Change Password button. A dialog window will appear and allow you to enter new password information. After entering a password, press the Save button to save the changes.

    Rest easy tonight knowing your forms are safe. Form on, friends!
