Web Forms (Wufoo)

Which form solution is right for me?

Consult the College protocol for online forms and surveys and talk with LITS to determine the correct choice.

Several form services are in use and supported across campus. LITS can help with:

  • Wufoo – used for most online forms, such as simple web forms or surveys.
  • Formsite- used for forms that collect payments. Discuss such needs with Web Services.
  • Office 365 Forms- may be useful for cases where access should be limited to authenticated Bryn Mawr Office 365 users. Discuss such needs with Web Services.

The Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment supports Qualtrics. Qualtrics is used for surveys, including IRB approved human subjects research.

If you need to collect sensitive information, contact LITS for help determining a suitable data collection and handling method. See the Data Handling Policy for details.
