By Milo Spencer Harper · May 7th, 2014

Log into Wufoo > Click on your form > Bulk actions > Export > As Excel (.xls) file > Open in Excel > Select all > Copy > Paste into your spreadsheet.

Sound familiar? If it does, by all means read on. And even if it doesn’t? Read on anyway—you’ll learn something! If you do find yourself clicking through that flow every day in Wufoo, then pay attention because we have super swell news to share with all of you. Your Excel life just got better. Infinitely better.

Say hello to our Excel plugin—Magi Metrics. It automates, simplifies, speeds up and generally makes the process of importing data from Wufoo into Excel a truly awesome experience. Once installed, you’ll have a new tab appear in your Excel ribbon called Magi Metrics. Just click on the Refresh button, and then boom—all of your Wufoo data is imported into your Excel spreadsheet. Now that’s what we like to call a truly magical experience, people.

To Use This Integration

  1. Head on over to Magi Metrics and hit the Signup for free button.

  2. Once you’re logged in to the Magi Metrics website, click on Wufoo and enter your Wufoo username and password.

  3. Download and install the Excel plugin.

That’s it. Really. You’re ready to start importing data from Wufoo directly into Excel. Simply select the Wufoo form from the drop-down box and click Import data.

  2. Does it work on Apple?

  3. I just tried it on my Mac, and it seems to be only available as a .exe file for Windows machines. Too bad, because this would have been great for me. Back to the bulk actions process.

  4. I’ve done it via https://zapier.com works great!

  5. Hi Colin and Julia, It doesn’t work on a Mac yet. Excel for Mac doesn’t support plugins in the same way that the Windows version of Excel does. However, I’m going to be bringing out a Google Spreadsheets version soon so Mac users can use it too. If you want, you can still register and I’ll email you once it’s available.

  6. Mac integration is essential!

  7. Milo, as others have posted, it doesn’t help us if it’s not available for a Mac. (Going through Google to get to Excel is no simpler than exporting from Wufoo and opening in Excel.) Hopefully you’ll find a way to make your software work on the Mac — and if not now, perhaps after Microsoft releases Office 2014 for Mac later this year.

  8. FYI to everyone, it also helps to have newer versions of Microsoft. If you have any troubles Milo is a HUGE help!
