Give Your Web Form(s) An Upgrade and Analyze User Interaction

All of us have forms on our web sites that we use to collect information. Most of the times the form is used in the “contact us” part of the web site for people to…contact us.
These forms work pretty well, for the most part. However, I’m sure there’s some of you who wish you form could do more, you wish it had some intelligence built into it. For example, instead of just going to one person, why not have it routed to several. Maybe you want to form to have some intelligence built into it, based on what answer the user gives.
