Wufoo Release Notes

We're constantly working to make Wufoo the best forms solution out there. Check in here to see all of the new things we're shipping to our amazing users.

The latest and greatest from Wufoo

Week of Feb 25, 2019

What’s new

  • Join the fun: Added a new Step Up! button to the legacy Form Manager and Entry Manger to invite selected users (randomly chosen) to switch to the new screens. More and more users will start seeing this new button in the coming weeks.
  • DocuSign: The generated document now displays the title of the Form as well as any text added to section breaks. This provides a more complete document of record with context of what was signed. Thank you for all the feedback on this one!

Bug fixes

  • File Manager: Calculating the size of the files in a folder is faster and more accurate

Week of Feb 18, 2019

What’s new

  • We revamped the look of our signup page that slides out from the side of the screen from the demo Form Builder page.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed an issue on our main account signup page that disabled the button in the event of an error.

Week of Feb 11, 2019

What’s new

  • Entry Manager: Authors can now define custom filters to narrow the view of entries. These filters are specific to the form and are remembered next time you visit the page.
  • Form Manager: The View Form menu item now always opens the form in a new browser tab. Thank you to all who provided feedback on this behaviour!

Bug fixes

  • Cursors are now consistent across the Form, Entry and File Managers.
  • The exclamation mark icons on our notification pop-ups are now behaving again.

Week of Feb 4, 2019

What’s new

  • Form Manager: Authors can now provide a name to a form that is only visible from within the product and different from its title! Keep in mind that this is only visible via new Form Manager.
  • When joining the new Wufoo experience, a little Welcome pop-up will appear.
  • Billing page: With the release of the US Sales tax, we’re asking users to update their billing info if necessary. To make it easier, we now allow you to update your billing country as well.

Bug fixes

  • Share screen: The iFrame and WordPress embed code is back
  • Entry Manager: You can now update and save entries that have extended names fields
  • Disk space: The amount of disk space used by the account is now accurately displayed in both the accounts page and the File Manager

Week of Jan 28, 2019

What’s new

  • Billing: All US based customers will now see an additional line item on their billing page to indicate the appropriate tax amount based on their address.
  • Entry Manager: Holding down the Cmd or Ctrl key will now open the detail view in a new tab. This is handy when you want to quickly open an entry without losing where you were on the overview page.
  • Entry Manager: You can now edit and save an entry without having to worry about the mandatory fields; they can be empty if you want to.

Bug fixes

  • We got rid of those pesky meta tag that would append themselves to HTML text after saving the form.
  • The payment page shows the images again rather than the HTML text
  • Entry Manager: The column names now reflect the fields on the form. If you remove a field from the form, it’ll also be removed from the grid of available columns.

Week of Jan 21, 2019

What’s new

  • Form Builder: You can now hide the IP address from the responses. Head over to the form settings and unselect the checkbox named Capture IP address. This will not affect the form’s analysis, but it will hide the IP address from the emails, notifications, exports and Entry Manager.

Bug fixes

  • Newfangled theme: The page navigation circles and labels are now properly sized and lined up.
  • Newfangled theme: The background of the pop-up instructions to the user can now be set via the Theme Designer.
  • Newfangled theme: Changing the fonts in the Theme Designer is now reflected in the preview window
  • Square authentication: Fixed a one-day hick-up where new forms could not authenticate to Square (existing forms were not affected).
  • Form Builder: We now more explicitly prevent saving forms without a title.

Week of Jan 14, 2019

What’s new

  • Profile logos: We switched the profile logos to be more generic and are moving away from the little cartoon characters. Profile logos are now gray and include the initials of the user.
  • Prioritized support for paid plans: The pricing page now indicates that our Support team prioritizes support to paid plans.
  • Entry Manager beta: The search mechanism now includes columns from payments, DocuSign and general entry metadata.

Bug fixes

  • The CSV created when you download an entry from the delete screen is no longer empty
  • Images placed in checkboxes now appear as expected in notifications and emails instead of showing HTML text.
  • Newfangled theme: The title and description fonts can now be modified via the Theme Manager
  • Newfangled theme: Borders can now be applied via Theme Manager

Week of Jan 7, 2019

What’s new

  • Form Builder: Pressing the Enter key from the field deletion screen now commits the action as opposed to cancelling it and reloading the form. The old way created confusion (and frustration!).

Bug fixes

  • Newfangled theme: In the event of a javascript error, we will now handle the error gracefully and display an info box at the top of the page.

Week of Dec 10

What’s new

  • Added the Address and State fields to the billing and upgrade screens. We will now check for a valid State and Zip upon upgrade. This is in preparation for the US Sales tax requirement coming in the new year.
  • Beta: Added the email verification banner for new users who need to validate their email address before upgrading

Bug fixes

  • Newfangled theme: Customizing the fonts styles via the Theme Designer will now show up properly in the form
  • Newfangled theme: The pop-up for Instructions to users will now display within the boundaries of the form and won’t be cut off.

Week of Dec 3

What’s new

  • Entry Manager beta: you can now sort the entries based on completion status
  • Beta: We added some new dino images to empty state screens such as empty search results, empty forms, empty entries. RAWRR!
  • Beta: Added a little badge to the Form and Entry Manager beta screens to better indicate that these screens are part of the new Wufoo experience
  • Beta: Renamed the beta URL to app.wufoo.com. But don’t worry, old bookmarks will continue to work.
  • Beta: Ability to join and leave Beta is now available to all users and subusers. Each user’s choice will not affect other users on the account.
  • General error message page: We used to display a white page when we encountered an unexpected error. This was confusing to the user. We now display a proper error page with better information on it. We hope no one will ever see it!

Bug fixes

  • Entry Manager beta: Expanding and shrinking column widths is much smoother.
  • Newfangled theme: Custom logos are now displayed correctly, with their expected sizes.
  • Newfangled theme: Custom images (via a link) for the submit button now show up correctly.
  • Newfangled theme: Custom background colors for the header now display as expected and are no longer overridden
