Our user base has come to rely on Formstack to get forms done. The Formstack tools make it easy to start from scratch or copy an existing form to "quick start" a new, similar form. The price is right and frees up IT staff to do more transformative work.

Formstack makes it very easy to update and reuse forms as you have alternate uses for them that are similar to prior projects. If you know what you need and don't want to build it from scratch, you can take a previous form you've built or a template they have offered and start there.

It's been great so far. Our only decision might be to increase our account as we are consistently running up to our limit of 100 forms. It would be nice to have a plan between 100 and 1000 forms that might be better suited to small businesses/non-profits of our size.

Exceptional API for quick and easy webform creation.

Formstack offers an excellent webform API but the billing/payment and support sides of the business could use improvements. Also, the compatibility issues with Internet Explorer should be addressed considering that the end-user should be at liberty to use whatever browser that they are comfortable with.

Formstack, the perfect beginners form managing tool!

I would renew Formstack personally. Unfortunately I do not make that decision at our organization. I believe we are switching to a product that offers more, possibly more advanced than Formstack. Formstack is a great way to ease into form managing and now that we are all familiar we may be moving to something with more options.

Formstack is, when it comes down to it, a very useful tool for many many reasons. It is incredibly easy to use (for people taking the survey), looks professional, and saves a lot of time on the research end of things, as well as the administrative end of things (compiling data, that sort of business).

We use Formstack for many different reasons and across company departments. The fact that one product can serve so many different purposes proves it is a tool we won't be giving up anytime soon. We as an organization utilize Formstack to do many different things, but mostly to provide the best possible customer service to our participants. Also, the nonprofit discount is a big plus for a relatively small NPO like us!
