Email Form Feature
The Email Form feature is a great solution for generating customer feedback, taking appointment/reservation requests, and gathering info from users in general. You can select from field options, adapt existing options to meet your needs, and customize the design of the form to create your perfect submission form. The Wufoo Form Feature is also a great option if you're looking for more custom features than our native option offers.
Great for these industries:
- Law Firms
- Service Providers
- If you offer custom-priced services or products that aren't well suited to the Merchandise feature, the Email Form feature can act as an interest or request form.
- Consider running contests or sweepstakes through the app that require the user to submit something through the Email Form feature.
