The video for my 2018 Codegarden talk "Umbraco Forms as the Ultimate Survey Tool" is now online.
You can download the slides and find the code on GitHub.
Sometimes a 3rd party service (such as Typeform or Survey Monkey) is the right tool for your survey needs, but there are distinct advantages to using Umbraco Forms instead: Having complete ownership and control of your data, customizing data visualization, sharing results (internally or externally), programmatic actions based on survey results, integration with other 3rd party systems (such as CRMs, Marketing Automation, or Customer Support), and avoiding yet another ongoing monthly fee for another external service.
Umbraco Forms gives you complete control for customization:
- Custom Fieldtypes allow you to craft the exact types of data you desire
- Create reports that summarize the data exactly as your stakeholders want to see it – and display via back-office dashboards or front-end accessible (membership protected, if desired) web pages.
- Use built-in and custom workflows to automatically act on submitted surveys – routing results via email, pushing data out to 3rd party services via API integrations, or automatically triggering internal processes based on business rules
