Happy Summer, Wufoo aficionados! It seems like just yesterday we were making our New Year Form Resolutions. Now we’re halfway through the year!
Maybe the time flew by because we’ve been hard at work adding new Wufoo features that were at the top of your holiday wishlist. After reading through a bunch of customer emails and feature requests, we implemented FOUR, count ‘em FOUR, major changes to Wufoo in the first half of 2017. In case you missed them in our newsletters…Here they are again for your convenience!
If you’ve used our file upload feature, you know what a wonderful feature it truly is. But, as many of our lovely customers pointed out to us, the 10MB size limit was a bit small.
And we agreed! So we improved on this feature by more than doubling the size of files that can be accepted per file upload field (up to 25MB from 10MB!) and quintupling the total file limit per entry (up to 100MB from 20MB) for our Bona Fide and higher plans.
Many of our amazing, form-tastic customers like to be able to close their form, but haven’t been super fond of our “Sorry, but this form is no longer accepting submissions.”
It’s a fine message, but it didn’t have the pazazz and customization that our users know and love. Well we updated that, too! Now you can customize the message of your closed form, or set up a redirect to one of your site’s pages.
Perhaps one of our most awesome new features, in our humble opinion. Now you can track all your pageviews, understand user behavior, and use just about all the other GA features! Collecting this data helps you gain valuable insights into how people interact with your Wufoo form.
And as we all know… valuable insights = better business decisions.
Another commonly requested customer feature that we think will improve your form experience ten-fold — Rather than just hoping your customers or clients give you the right info, be sure they know exactly what kind of answer you’re looking for!
Use Placeholder Text in your form as a handy guide to people who need to give you their info. By giving them examples and instructions within form fields, you’ll make filling out your form a breeze.
Sneak peek: The rest of 2017…and beyond!
The team’s been doing some amazing work behind the scenes to get Wufoo in tiptop shape. We’ve updated our databases so they can handle more entries and added pagination to the Form Manager to help with loading time. All these system updates help us to keep your data secure and your forms functioning splendidly.
It also laid the groundwork for all the product updates we’ve made so far… and for those features that have yet to come! We still have 6 months left of 2017 to look into commonly requested features:
- Redesigned, mobile-friendly Wufoo account pages? Wouldn’t have been possible without some recent code updates!
- Save-and-return feature? The database changes helped us put this on our roadmap!
- No field limit? Our systems have been prepped for that change, too!
… we’ve said too much… (Isn’t it exciting?!)
And that’s it for your 2017 mid-year feature roundup! Everyone here at Team Wufoo would like to extend a big ol’ THANK YOU to everyone who’s ever given us feedback over the years that Wufoo’s been around.
