As many of you have already noticed, we’ve been rolling out some changes to Wufoo. As we approach our 10th birthday, we’re excited to highlight the recent updates and give you a little preview of what’s coming next.
The most obvious change is probably the new background. We’ve opted for a simpler style this time, removing the old yellow stripes. This is a big step towards our plans to bring a fresh look and feel to Wufoo.
Easy Form Builder access
Clicking on a form title in the Form Manager now takes you directly to the Form Builder. This is a great way to make some quick changes or additions to a form. You can still access the Form Builder through the Edit button under the form as well.
Got new entries? Find them fast!
If you’ve gotten some new entries in the last day, the Form Manager displays a count of those entries next to the form title. To make it even easier to check on your latest entries, clicking the green Entries notification will now take you straight to the Entry Manager. As before, you can also continue to use the Entries button under the form.
Quickly share or embed a new form
After saving your changes in the Form Builder, we provide some handy links to help you take the next step in preparing your form. Our latest addition to these options is a direct link to your form’s Share page. Since this is the best place to find all of the options for sharing or embedding your form, it felt only natural to make the Share page only a click away from the Form Builder.
Updated Share page
The Share page has been updated before but we’ve got some new ideas that we’re getting ready to roll out. As with the rest of the changes, the focus will be on helping to streamline your workflow and making it easier to find the most commonly used features.
Form Manager design and layout
The Form Manager is where many of you spend a lot of time, and we’re hoping to make that time a little more enjoyable and productive. We’ll be looking at ways to better organize some of the existing features and continuing to make the Form Manager a little easier on the eyes. The new design should also make it easier for us to adapt and expand the Form Manager to accommodate any additional changes in the future.
As always, our goal is to make building online forms fast, easy, and fun. We hope these updates will help with that goal, and we’d love to hear what you think too. If you have any thoughts, comments, or suggestions, please share them with us!
