Quick and Easy are not two terms that typically are synonymous with Drupal. You generally have to go through the ringer to get Drupal to do most things. That’s the nature of a tool as powerful as Drupal. But the Webform module will really surprise you in a very nice way.
I needed a quick and dirty way to let my users send me feedback. The comment system won’t do because the feedback is general and not specific to a node. And I really want it to go into an email.
With an install base of about 350k sites, I really don’t know how I missed webform. But with just a few steps, I was able to create a one field form (see the SS) that emails the result to an email address that I specify.
The module will create a content type called webform. From there, you simply create a new node. Once the intitial node has been created, you can add all of the nice elements that will go into the result. I have a one field form here but you can have much more that that. Definitely worth the time for your Drupal install!
