Outages and Updates

As expected, launch was both exciting and rough. With thousands of signups and an Alexa ranking of around 2000, we experienced a few server crashes and headaches. Yesterday afternoon, we switched over our primary server to a brand new box, and began to see some progress. We’ve been working around the clock with [BitPusher](http://www.bitpusher.com/) to examine different scenarios and minimize downtime. While we are going through these growing pains, we thank you for your patience and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

On a happier note, when we weren’t stressing over server issues, we did manage to get some heavily requested code fixes/features implemented. For now, I’ll post them here, but in the future we will have a change log for this sort of documentation.

###Entries Page

– When you add and remove field columns from the grid, the fields are now ordered by their position on the form instead of the order they were created in.

– Datagrid settings are now stored in cookies. So, when you add and remove columns they will be remembered for the next time you come back to the page. Expect page number and sorting history to come soon, as well as all of this functionality to the reports section.

– Deleting an entry now properly deletes all files associated with that entry.

###Admin Only Fields

– Name, Address, and Checkboxes now save properly when flagged as admin only.

– When submissions are emailed to you, they are now correctly formatted when admin only fields are involved.

###Form Builder

– When using a free account, you should now be able to edit fields even when you have reached your max limit of 10.

Thanks to all of you Wufooers out there — keep the bug reports and suggestions coming in!

    i delete all my cookies at the end of every browsing session. does that mean that wufoo is not going to work for me [or anybody else who does the same thing]?

  • No, Wufoo will work just fine for you. All that particular feature does is remember what you were last looking at, and show it to you when you come back. If no cookies are set, you will just be presented the default view.

  • Very good indeed and I am sure you will control all the request. I have a question: is it possible to give 2 e-mail adresses to get the notification of new entries in a form?
    Thank you and go on,

  • You can email multiple people by typing their emails into the form builder like this:

    ryan@wufoo.com;chris@wufoo.com

    The length of this field is limited right now, but we may expand it. We can’t allow for people to put in giant mailing lists in this field, but we can understand people wanting to put 10 emails.

  • Talking about feature requests, how about (online, direct) collaboration options (like in Writely?). Or just a way or ways to see and discuss with other people, live? I’m not sure whether this should be given priority, it’s just a thought…

    Keep up the good work!
