Over the last few months, we’ve been thrilled by the ingenuity of developers using our APIs and features to connect and integrate Wufoo into their system to enhance their web applications and services. We’d like to take some time here to highlight a few great examples illustrating two types of integration being done with Wufoo.
Yola Form Integration
Yola is a free website creator that’s empowering anyone to easily build and host a great-looking web site for free. After creating a web site with Yola, their users naturally wanted to add a form to their web pages to collect information or allow their visitors to contact them. And so this is what they came up with:
The Yola team did a great job of making it really easy to drag and drop a Wufoo contact form into their page designer. All you have to do is drag the Wufoo Form widget into the appropriate content area and a dialog box opens up to accept the Wufoo Form Embed code that can be grabbed from our Code Manager.

MailChimp Data Integration
MailChimp is a do-it-yourself email marketing service that lets you easily send email newsletters, manage subscriber lists and track campaigns. While you could always import email addresses collected by your Wufoo form into MailChimp via our Excel / CSV export, you unfortunately had to do this periodically and manually when you remembered. Their team came up with a really clever solution to automate the process:
Using Wufoo’s ability to serve secure RSS feeds of new entries, MailChimp setup their system to easily pass new data into a subscriber list automatically without the need for programming on the user’s end. All you have to do is enter your Wufoo form’s feed URL and your user credentials. Now your email campaigns will always be up to date with the latest emails collected from your Wufoo form. Pretty sweet, eh?

A huge thank you to the teams at Yola and MailChimp for making these integrations happen. We think they’ve done an awesome job with the polish on these implementations and hope you guys enjoy using Wufoo more easily with their services. If you’re offering Wufoo features in your web application in exciting ways, please let us know!.
