This module adds a webform nodetype to your Drupal site. Typical uses for Webform are questionnaires, contact or request/register forms, surveys, polls or a front end to issues tracking systems.
Submissions from a webform are saved in a database table and can optionally be mailed to a nominated e-mail address upon submission. Past submissions are viewable for users with the correct permissions.
Webform includes some simple statistical tools to help in form design and evaluation and also allows the whole table to be downloaded as a csv file for detailed statistical analysis.
When to use Webform instead of CCK
Webform can be used when performing data collection that is a one-waycommunication, that is, many users submitting values to a very small set of administrators. Webform is not a front end for let users create custom nodes. For this you can use the CCK package or create your own custom node module.Webform submissions are not nodes. This means that you can't use Views with submissions, setup custom access permissions to submissions, or do just about anything with them outside of what Webform provides for you.
Webform is however, a fantastic and easy solution for websites that need to create many regularly changing forms. Webform doesn't require you to setup a content type for each different form, instead each form is tied to a particular node. Some good examples could be contests, personalized contact forms, or petitions. Each of these could have a customized form for end-users to fill out. If you need to build a lot of customized, one-off forms, Webform is a more suitable solution than CCK.
