6 Reasons Why JotForm is the Best Google Forms Alternative

At JotForm, we’re actually thankful for Google Forms. They’ve helped introduce many people to the wonderful world of form building. They provide a simple method for creating an online form, which is great news for a lot of individuals and organizations. But what if you’re looking for a form builder that does more? What if you need payment collection; integrations with the systems already used by your office; and the ability to make your form gorgeous?

JotForm isn’t new to this whole form building game. We started in 2006 with a mission to enable anyone the ability to create their own web forms from scratch. Since then? Nearly two million users have created awesome forms using our platform, including hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and major universities; and tens of thousands of small businesses, teachers, and nonprofits around the world.

We thought we’d introduce you to some of the reasons why users have upgraded to JotForm from Google Forms.

Stunning Form Design

JotForm’s Form Designer changed the way people think about form design. This feature lets users create beautiful, custom forms without even needing to master complicated CSS. With just a few clicks, you can turn your form into a beautiful, completely functional piece of information-collecting art. And if you’re not in the mood to harness your inner designer, then the Theme Store is already stocked with thousands of free, pre-made themes.

Integrations Galore

What good is an online form if it doesn’t integrate with the systems you already rely on to run your business? JotForm allows you to send form submission information to CRMs (Salesforce and Zoho), email marketing services (Constant Contact, GetResponse, and Mailchimp), and cloud storage systems (Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive).


It’s important to JotForm that our users have the ability to see how their forms are performing. Form Analytics was released to do just that. This tool gives users a breakdown of their form’s conversions over custom date periods, with the ability to see what devices your users are submitting forms from as well.

Simple and Secure Payment Collection

There’s not a form building platform on the planet that makes collecting easier than JotForm. Choose from PayPal, Stripe,, PAYMILL, and others to integrate with the forms you create to collect payments for goods, donations, and deposits without any hassle.

Templates for Everyone

Even though JotForm makes it simple to create a form from scratch, templates can give users a great head start to building the perfect form. And we have lots of them -- over 8,000 in total. Every imaginable type of form, for every imaginable industry, can be found in our vast collection, saving users time.

Unprecedented Ease of Use

JotForm has always been at the forefront of easy, and were even dubbed the easiest by Entrepreneur Magazine. Launched nearly 10 years ago, JotForm was the first ever WYSIWYG form building tool. And every new feature release, update to our core product, and new hire to our growing team is done with the intention of making forms as uncomplicated as possible. We believe anyone should be able to create the online form they deserve, and we’re committed to that more than ever.

We are not the only ones who feels like this. According to Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, JotForm is the best alternative to Google Forms for educators.
