Nonprofits + Wufoo: Improving Workflow with Forms

[Giving back](https://www.surveymonkey.com/blog/2015/09/03/surveymonkey-gives-back/) has always been important to us here at **Wufoo** and **SurveyMonkey** so we’re super proud and excited to talk about some changes we’ve made specifically to make Wufoo even better for nonprofit organizations. Many have used Wufoo for a long time now to help streamline day to day tasks, organize and run events, manage volunteers, and even raise money to help keep the lights on, all with the singular purpose of making the world, yes, a better place.

We spoke to quite a few nonprofits who use Wufoo daily and asked what we could do to make Wufoo an *even better* and more powerful tool for their specific needs. What’d we hear the most? Make it easier to organize forms as well as see entry and submission data at a glance. So, that’s what we worked on!

For new nonprofit organizations, we’re rolling out some tweaks to the old standby, the Form Manager. For these organizations, special forms will be categorized under three headings of **Volunteer Registration**, **Event Registration**, and **Fundraising**. As you can see, these categories will allow nonprofit organizations the ability to sort their forms by type. And perhaps more importantly, each category heading will have a quick-at-a-glance dashboard displaying the most important numbers. It makes it even easier for nonprofit organizations to keep their forms orderly as well as makes it easier to see just how well their forms are performing. All of this is crucial for super important fundraising efforts.

We’re slowly rolling out these new features to the Form Manager for nonprofit organizations and you can read more about what we’ve built for nonprofits in our new [dedicated section](http://www.wufoo.com/nonprofit/). If you’re an existing nonprofit Wufoo user, hold on tight! We’ve not forgotten you! We’ll announce plans shortly about expanding these new features to all accounts but we’re not quite ready for that news just yet.

Feedback, notes, comments, or general salutations, please leave it below! We’d love to hear what you think about these new features to help nonprofits change the world for better.

  • Can someone please explain to me why I am being forced to use the .com.mx version of this website? I had to login, because the homepage keeps redirecting to a Spanish version. With no option to change the language to English.

    Please fix this

  • Do you have an estimated release date?

  • This looks awesome! Is there a possibility in the future to be able to “create” tab headings to separate form types – beyond “volunteer,” “event,” and “fundraising”? Just curious!

  • Great news. We have so many forms and being able to organize them into “folders” has been something on my mind.

  • Thank you. It would be extremely helpful to have the option of sorting Reports and Forms alphabetically, in addition to by “date created” and “date edited”.

  • Dear Friends, This is great news, but what we could use is a couple of sorting options for Forms, such as Type (my choice of label) and alphabetically, in addition to “date created” and “date edited” THANK YOU! 🙂

  • I’m really looking forward to this. I hope that the donation form improvements include updates to the payment page. Some of the language, like “Payment Summary” and “Item Price” are incongruous with giving. When will this be available to current clients?

  • I love your forms. These new options make it even better.

  • Why this is only for none profit users, not for everyone?

  • I manage 3 annual initiatives with multiple sites and projects for anywhere between 300 – 1000 volunteers each. I could never manage without you! Thanks for listening to feedback and can’t wait to see how I can incorporate these features in the future!

  • What did you mean by “soon”? It’s December with no more word on a timeline to roll out Client Management to all non-profits that use Wufoo.
