Paperless Registration Script/App Question
Posted on 2011-09-14
I am looking for a good paperless enrollment script or web app for a school that is database driven. I want parents to be able to securely register their students, filling out all sorts of information like address, phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc.
I think there is probably no need for it to be education specific. Any data collection web script should work, even one used for medical intakes or something of that nature.
The critical element is that we want one that can prevent duplicate registrations. We have had a huge problem with that and need a system that can automatically prevent duplicate registrations.
I have tried all sorts of things, including scripts like FormFields (didn't work well and is no longer updated) and more crude implementations like Survey Monkey or a Google form linked to a Google Doc spreadsheet. Nothing has really satisfied me yet.
I do have a lot of web experience, so finding a more complex system would be fine; I could implement it. Note that while I would prefer free, this is important enough to me that I am willing to pay to license a script or service that provides these functions.
