Online Forms vs PDFs


Formstack is an alternative for fillable Word or PDF documents. The collection of data is simple and reliable. Data is stored in a database and available for download into several different formats. A notification email is sent to the SWOSU representative(s) as well as a confirmation email sent to the person submitting the form. Online form examples show the possibilities.
