Wishbox Released: Get Feedback From Web Site Visitors

When Google+ released earlier this year, it received over 1 million feedback messages in the first month. They used one of those feedback buttons on the side of the page. What was interesting about their feedback tool was that it had the ability to include a screenshot of the current page within the feedback message. This was pretty neat, since it allowed users to explain their problems more clearly.


We thought this was something that could be useful to all web sites. Getting feedback from users is hard. Getting feedback that clearly explains a problem or suggestion is even harder. 

Getting people to send a screenshot with their feedback is a good idea. But, we thought why stop there? Why not let users annotate these screenshots with text and draw arrows on it? Let them have some fun, and show you the problem, instead of trying to describe it. 

The result is an amazing new way to get feedback: Wishbox

wishbox


We recently run a private beta with 50 JotForm users. They loved Wishbox. It seems that Wishbox is especially useful for web designers. That was something we did not expect. Designers wanted to use Wishbox to get feedback on mock-ups and completed web site design. Since their clients can easily take screenshots and draw things on them, everyone saves time. 

Today, we are proud to announce Wishbox is now available to everyone. Wishbox is free and easy to install on any web site. You can get your own Wishbox on your site right now!

    Hello JotForms-Team,

    I'm a web administrator and I just tested your wishbox. It's great, thanks.

    Still I have one request, that would make my life much easier.
    When somebody sends me his feedback (e.g. issue with one of our websites), I most certainly have to go to this website to check the problem or the effect of my solution.

    For this it would be greate to have the websites Url in the notification Email that I get after a submitted feedback.

    Thanks anyways

    Can't wait to use it but I need to turn off the automatic picture capture.

    Just want the written feedback.

    Also, wish that the Wishbox notice on my form design page wasn't so big....

    Keep making great stuff!

    Why is there no link to (or mention of) Wishbox on the Jotform home page? There isn't even a link in the footer.

    Is Wishbox not important enough?
