So, you need an online form. Online forms have many uses… let’s run through some of them:
- Simple event or conference registration form
- Contact Us page of your website
- Online poll question and answer
- User inquiry
- Troubleshooting page
- Course evaluation
- Product order form
- Satisfaction survey
- Volunteer application
- Employee application
I will stop there because the list is actually limitless and I could keep making stuff up all afternoon.
What is important is who you use to provide your online form. I have talked about WordPress plugin form options in the past and this post is strictly for the online options.
What’s the difference? Well, if you are using WordPress, it certainly makes sense to just use a plugin. If you are not using WordPress or you need to SHARE your form, then you need an online form and there are some great options out there.
What makes a good form builder?
- Ease of use
- Allows conditional logic (if this, then that)
- Easy to understand
- Allows you to share information
- Multiple authors
Those are my criteria, others probably differ…that is why I am not reviewing each of these, I am simply throwing them out there because they are all good, you just need to pick the one that works for you.
