Online file sharing is our definition of instant gratification. If you need to give people a lighting-fast way to send files, we’ve made it super simple to add a file upload option to any form or survey you create in Wufoo. Just use our File Upload Field. So donate that fax machine, and never worry again about waiting days for the postal system to come through. File share online instead!
Online file sharing has tons of applications
Use our file upload feature in a variety of form types. Perhaps you want to create an online application form, and you need a way for people to attach their résumé. Or maybe you have a homework page online for students, and they need to be able to submit class papers. With Wufoo, you can do it. The options are endless! Below are just a few of the ways that you can take advantage of Wufoo’s file sharing system, especially if you use our Dropbox File Upload Form to start! Once you add this template to your account, connect it with your Dropbox account in a few easy steps.
Create employment applications and receive résumés
When a candidate is interested in working for your company, most likely, that person will go to your website and see if any job postings are listed. While the candidate is there, why not make it easy for them to fill out an Employee Application Form and send you their online resume? Customize the employment application form, so that it captures information that’s essential to the job functions, and easily give applicants a way to share files online when you include a résumé uploader link on the form.
If you’re a teacher or professor, never accept “I lost my paper” excuses again!
The days of students telling you that their dog ate their homework are over. When you have students submit their papers and homework through a Student Paper Submission Form you’ll have a no-hassle way to collect work. Customize a form that gives students a way to submit papers, a thesis, or even a daily quiz. Email the form to students, or embed it into your school website.
Collect manuscripts and large documents
If you’ve ever gone through the stress of submitting a manuscript to a publisher, you know how much sleep you lose during the process. If you’re a publisher, save aspiring writers the trouble, and allow them to share files online with our Manuscript Submission Form. While you’re at it, collect vital information, such as the writer’s contact information, the length of the manuscript, and get notes on what type of editing it needs.
Give grant applicants a break
Grant writing is a competitive process, and organizing paperwork that goes along with submissions can be a huge job. Collect grant applications and files easily when you use Wufoo. Your grant submitters will love it, and you will too. Customize your Grant Application Form to include all of the information you and your committee will need to award grants.
Never lose an expense report reimbursement receipt again
Who likes filling out expense reports? We definitely don’t. And if you’ve ever spent hours at the copy machine capturing every single lunch and gas station receipt, you know how annoying it can be to get reimbursed. When you use Wufoo’s Expense Report and Reimbursement Form, you can make the process so much better. Employees can capture an image or scan of their receipts, and upload it on the form. Customize the forms to include all of the categories needed to file the expense accordingly.
Send images and files with Dropbox integrations
We’ve partnered with Dropbox so that you can store files and images safely and securely in your Dropbox account. Use our Dropbox form anytime you want to get those files from your contacts, and they’ll have fast way to send them over. Using this integration, you can connect Wufoo with your Dropbox account and automatically send the files you upload to the folder you specify.
Still Curious How Wufoo Works?
Wufoo is an easy-to-use online tool that allows anyone to create and build online forms--no coding or programming required. And Wufoo hosts and stores everything, so you don't have to worry about where your forms or data will live.
You can completely customize the look and feel of your forms using our Theme Designer by choosing colors to fit your brand or theme, as well as adding your company's logo or your wedding colors to your forms. You can even use one of almost 300 form templates in our Form Gallery to jump start creating your forms, or look at our Examples to see how you can use Wufoo in your company.
Wufoo partners and works with loads of other applications, allowing you to accept data and information through your forms and send it other applications that your company uses. We have integrations with applications like MailChimp, Dropbox, Zapier, Salesforce, WordPress, and more.
