Formstack is an online form building solution. Its drag-and-drop web form creator gives digital marketers a tool for online data collection and engagement. Users can collect payments and pass form data to popular marketing apps through third-party integrations. With Formstack, users can capture responses, store the information and share it with their teams. is Solid in SaaS Data CollectionI have used Formstack with multiple organizations I have volunteered and consulted with over the past five years. Some of the uses include: Event registration data collection and payments with PayPal for High Performance driving eventsEvent registration and payment collection for various charitable and non-profit eventsFannie Mae form 1003 data collection for the loan origination processSmall merchandise sales and order fulfillmentSalesforce and general 'form' data collection and request processesIn all but one case, each of my use cases and experience with Formstack has been connecting and integrating it with WordPress sites. My driving reason for using Formstack was the ability to easily connect to WordPress and begin the collecting and routing of end-user data.,Formstack integrates very well with WordPress. A simple plug-in install and any WordPress site is ready to begin collecting data. Formstack has a plethora of options for the actual routing of data. Not only can you store data in the FormStack cloud for future retrieval, you have the ability to route the data to your own email, others email (for confirmation), or integrate with Google Docs The management and flow process of forms is quite advanced. From calculations to conditional based logic, Formstack is capable of quite advanced, quasi-'systems' type data routing. This makes data collecting and the conditional collecting of data (i.e. if this, then collect that) very easy,Formstack is missing what I might consider some major integrations: it has Salesforce, but no NetSuite; it has Google Apps, but no Office 365 While the data routing options are impressive, one area that would be incredible would be the integration or data feeding of third party databases. For example, if data collected could be pushed to another cloud-based on on-premise PostgreSQL or Microsoft SQL Server instance, the ability to use the collected data with other integrated systems would be incredible. In my opinion, Formstack can be a little pricey in the tiers. For not much money you can get into the service, but it's easy to quickly run out of space and need to jump to a more expensive tier,9,Using Formstack, I have been able to - on multiple occasions - stand up professional quality, web-based, data and payment collecting applications in literally days and not weeks. The "time to live" using Formstack is incredible. With a Formstack account, you will find yourself often using it to "collect data." The simplicity combined with the professionalism makes it a go-to choice over alternatives such as email and manual data collection, or even SharePoint lists or shared Google Docs,,10,Implemented in-house,10,10,10Formstack, the Legos of the form world, lets you create attractive forms with simple building blocks.We used multiple instances of Formstack on the company website. I handled all our web design, so I was the primary user, but Formstack is simple enough anyone could use it. I created both simple comment forms and tech support requests, as well as more complicated financial applications.,Simple drag and drop creation makes it very easy to create and reorganize forms. Frequently used fields are already available, but you can create any field you need in seconds. You can have a form that combines single field questions, with multiple choice or even conditional logic. You can create A and B versions of your form and analytics give you an easy way to assess which form is getting a better response. The forms are very easy to brand.,I never ran into any problems using formstack. I only wish the rest of plugins were this user friendly.,10,Increased response time on technical support and customer service requests Allowed customers to apply for financing after business hours Gave us a way to poll our clients about product satisfaction,,3,2,10,Drag and drop creation Ability to easily mix types of questions such as single field, multiple choice etc Allows forms to be sent to multiple email address. Confirmation email allows links, so you can provide clients with requested documents. Clients can be redirected to any web address after filling out the form. Formstack hosts form and provides html so you can embed it in your own website. Formstack provides multiple color themes to match any website.,None, it's all easy.,10Formstack in Higher Education AdmissionMultiple offices across our campus utilize Formstack to meet their needs from the alumni office using a form to manage registration for alumni events, the student life office for roommate pairing to the admission office for visitor registration. We've currently maxed out our number of users under the Manager level (10 users). This is a good problem as it shows that the form building process is intuitive enough to allow multiple users to manage their own forms with only a bit of training. We have a few users that are admins where some have only access to certain forms. This benefit has been helpful in managing our users. For the basic users - those that just need to log in from time to time to access new submissions or to make minor changes to forms - the latest update has been pretty helpful to that end. For the more advanced users, there are excellent features that both add the ability to analyze form submission trends as well as to build more advanced features (like tracking progress, form saving, email kick-backs, etc.). Only minor critique: sporadically, a notification email will not be sent when a form is submitted. Very sporadically but enough that it isn't a "fool-proof" process if you only rely on the notification email rather than logging in to check for new submissions.,Ease of use - basic users can get the hang of it pretty quickly. Advanced features - those that want to make "fancier" forms can do so. Flexibility - can be used to meet a variety of needs in a variety of different situations.,Consistency - some sporadic issues of notification emails not being sent.,10,Positive - ability to analyze submission trends - e.g. when a marketing email is sent, looking at increased form viewing and submissions in relation to the sending of the campaign. Immediate response - those that submit forms receive immediate response that their form has been submitted.,10,Adding new fields Modifying existing fields Setting up kick-back emails and notifications,More advanced features like conditional logic (more about the user, though),Yes,10
