About Wufoo

Wufoo is an Internet application that helps anybody build amazing online forms. When you design a form with Wufoo, it automatically builds the database, backend and scripts needed to make collecting and understanding your data easy, fast and fun. Because we host everything, all you need is a browser, an Internet connection and a few minutes to build a form and start using it right away. What can I build with this? Basically, the possibilities are endless. Here's a short list of examples to give you an idea of Wufoo's versatility: Contact Form Mailing List Survey Job Application Workshop Registration Event Calendar Account Management Customer Management Bug Tracker Invitations / RSVP Online Orders Wedding Planner Address Book Home Finances Classifieds Personal Journal Quizzes / Tests Media Collection Definitely check out our examples page to see some of the more popular forms created in Wufoo along with descriptions of how to introduce them into your web site and workflow. For even more ideas, visit our Form Gallery where you can view and install over 80 templates and themes designed with Wufoo. Why would I want to use Wufoo? We believe forms are the starting point for building anything useful on the web. Basically, they're the most efficient mechanisms for collecting data from people. The problem is creating an online form isn't very efficient. The process of creating a form and all the database structures and scripts necessary to make it work (not to mention useful) is a really tedious process that makes what should be a simple task (collecting and understanding information), not really worth the time, effort or cost of the endeavor. The entire process could take you or your IT person days, if not weeks. With Wufoo, you can skip all the hard stuff (because it does it all for you), and start getting things done. Is Wufoo right for me? While we do have a list of features and a tour for you to look at, Wufoo is more of an experience than a checklist. The only real way to find out if Wufoo is right for you is to create a FREE account and find out for yourself. Usually, you'll know the answer within a few minutes of playing around with our services. If you have any questions after that, please do contact us. What's required to use Wufoo? All you need is an Internet connection and a supported browser to use our services. Currently, we support Internet Explorer 6 and higher, Firefox 2 and higher, and Safari 2 and higher. You may be able to log into Wufoo and create forms with other browsers, but only the ones mentioned here are officially supported. Additionally, while the admin interface requires JavaScript and Flash to build and manage your forms, the public forms you share with others are built with degradable techniques that'll work even if JavaScript is turned off. Is my data safe and secure with Wufoo? We do our best to ensure the safe keeping of your data on Wufoo. Our servers are located at the Sea01 data center in Seattle and backed up onsite and offsite to data centers in Virginia and Amsterdam. We also offer plans with 128 bit SSL encryption so you can both serve and submit form submissions via a secure transfer protocol. We also provide the ability to store information in an encrypted format in the database. We have the expertise of BitPusher, a company whose founders have experience with Napster and Netcom (among others), to ensure that everything is safe and stable on the hardware end. Check out our documentation to read more about our security measures. How long do you keep my information? Wufoo will hold onto your information as long as you have a Wufoo account. When you delete an entry, or when you delete your account, the information is deleted from our servers. Can anyone access my forms and reports? That's up to you. All forms and reports can be made either public or private with just a click of a button. By default, all new forms are public. And by default, all new reports are private. If you have a paying account, you can also password protect any form or report in Wufoo. How much does Wufoo cost? Wufoo's tiered monthly plans range from $9.95/month to $199.95/month and the prices are based on the number of users that you can manage, the number of forms you might need, the number of entries you can have submitted per month, the amount of disk space you can use for handling files and various other factors. There's also a very nice FREE version.
