Online file sharing is our definition of instant gratification. If you need to give people a lightning-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 again worry about waiting days for the postal system to come through. File share online instead!
Online file sharing has loads 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 CV. Or maybe you have a homework page online for students and they need to be able to submit their assignments. With Wufoo, you can do this. 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've added this template to your account, connect it to your Dropbox account in just a few easy steps.
Create employment applications and receive CVs
When a candidate is interested in working for your company, that person will most probably visit your website and see whether any job postings are listed. While the candidate is there, why not make it easy for him/her to fill in an Employee Application Form and send you his/her online CV? Customise 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 CV uploader link on the form.
If you’re a teacher or lecturer, never again accept “I lost my essay” as an excuse!
The days of students telling you that their dog ate their homework are over. When get students to submit their essays and homework via a Student Essay Submission Form you’ll have a no-hassle way to collect work. Customise a form that gives students a way to submit essays, a thesis or even a daily test. 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'll 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 and the length of the manuscript as well as getting notes about what type of editing it needs.
Give grant applicants a break
Grant writing is a competitive process, and organising 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. Customise your Grant Application Form to include all of the information that you and your committee will need to award grants.
Never lose an expense report reimbursement receipt again
Who likes filling in expense reports? We definitely don’t. And if you’ve ever spent hours at the photocopier capturing every single lunch and petrol station receipt, you’ll 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. Customise 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. If you use our Dropbox form whenever you want to get those files from your contacts, they’ll have a fast way to send them over. Using this integration, you can connect Wufoo to your Dropbox account and automatically send the files you upload to the folder you specify.
