There is a pretty kick-ass feature in the latest Confluence release, Confluence 2.10.3, which slipped right under my nose. It’s an addition to the list of the many supported web services for Jens’s awesome Widget Connector. Best of all, it’s free to use!
Have you ever wanted to add a form or survey to a Confluence page to
capture information from your users, or even customers? Well, you’ve
had a few options for a while now. If you are looking to capture data
in Confluence, you can use CustomWare’s free Scaffolding plugin, and if you are looking to create forms on a Confluence page with a behind-the-firewall option, you can check out frevvo’s Live Forms commercial plugin. We’ve outlined all your options here.
So, what’s this new addition to the Widget Connector…support for Wufoo forms! Wufoo
strives to be the easiest way to collect information over the Internet
and they have a top notch HTML form builder, which helps you create
contact forms, online surveys, and invitations so you can collect all
the data, registrations and online payments you need without writing a
single line of code.
It is so easy to use and I was so excited to try it that I whipped
together a quick demo for your viewing pleasure. Keep in mind that I
created the video using the latest beta release of Confluence 3.0, so you might see some features that aren’t yet available. Check it out below:
How can I start using Confluence + Wufoo together?
You can sign up
to Wufoo for free and instantly create up to three forms, without
paying a single cent. If you need to create more than 3 forms, check
out Wufoo’s generous pricing.
If you are using Confluence 2.10 +, just update to the latest version of
the Widget Connector for this new feature to be available. Remember
that the Widget Connector is a free bundled plugin for Confluence.
