Integration with Yola and MailChimp

Over the last few months, we’ve been thrilled by the ingenuity of developers using our [APIs](/docs/api/) 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:

Wufoo / SynthaSite Integration

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](/docs/code-manager/).

###MailChimp Data Integration

[MailChimp](http://mailchimp.com) 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:

Wufoo / MailChimp Integration

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?

###Thanks!

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!.

  • Hi Kevin,

    Wufoo has been a good integration partner and our community really enjoy the service. Well done for creating an intuitive product. I look forward to seeing what you do next with your API program.

  • I’ve been using MailChimp for a while now and it’s a great Mail Campaign website! It’s the best in it’s kind! Then I found out about Wufoo and it’s the best form builder on the net! Now I’m going to try out SyntaSite… if this is as good in what it’s for like wufoo and MailChimp are in their areas. I don’t understand why any company still pays thousands of euro’s on Mail Servers, webs servrs, web designers, etc…. these are all so easy to use and great sites! Thanks to the teams at MailChimp and Wufoo!

  • Hi, nice work with the integration with these other tools!

    At the top of my personal wish-list is however an integration with Salesforce, so that you could use Wufoo instead of Salesforce quite primitive web-to-lead forms.

    Can one nurture a hope for this, or?

  • I am hoping to dig into the APIs myself soon, but has anyone attempted a CampaignMonitor/Wufoo integration?

  • Hi,

    I fell in love with Wufoo the minute i experienced it. So, as soon as my site was ready for integration i jump up and got myself a package. Now i am so happy with its easy and functionality that i plan to use Wufoo on all my future projects.

    So its really natural that advance coders will have some great use for Wufoo and expand its scope even further. Being integrated with Wufoo is just a bonus for MailChimp. Now, its on the top of my list when it comes to email marketing services.

    But what i really miss is a reCAPTCHA plugin for Wufoo. Maybe you guys can throw that in, it will really help a lot.

    Thanks for making a great product.
    Keep Up the good works guys.

  • I’m like Tom. I found Wufoo through Mailchimp who are just great. Wufoo was also a revelation.. now i’ll check out synthasite. Good job guys!

  • I don’t speak html, and so I absolutely love Wufoo and Mailchimp! But how about a reversal on this theme – Such as how can I integrate a Wufoo form into my Mailchimp emails?? That would be killer!
