  • Adding extra power to your forms is one of the reasons people love JotForm. Beyond simple forms fields such as text, file uploads, and dropdowns, JotForm has close to 400 widgets. These include a wide range of specialized fields including fancy checkboxes, image sliders, and signature fields. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out all our widgets which can really make your forms stand out.

    There’s great news! We just added a new widget that all users can enjoy- the XVerify Email widget. It’s a simple email field that will verify that the email address users enter on your form is correct and working.

  • Close your eyes and try to imagine a world where the prices you pay now would never rise a single cent. Now open your eyes!

    We at JotForm wanted to let you in on a special deal: upgrade to one of our existing paid plans now and be locked in to that price forever — even as we restructure our prices for everyone else on August 15th.

    This is our way of saying thank you to our loyal users. We’ve always felt like easy form building should be accessible to everyone, and we’ll still have a pricing structure that reflects that. But if you lock in one of our original prices, you can keep partying like it’s 2006 for years to come!

    We’re going to keep the new features coming, promising you the simplist way to build forms, design themes, collect payments, and much more.

    And if you’re already enjoying a paid plan and are happy with what you have, don’t worry. You’re locked in to that price as well. However, if you’re enjoying a free plan and have thought about upgrading, now is a great time.

    So what do you say? Upgrade to an original price today!

  • Form builder apps are some of the most versatile tools out there. There's really no limit to what you can do with forms: generate leads on your website, register attendees for an event, make an easy place for people to contact you, or even build an order form.

    However, capturing that information is just a piece of the puzzle. What do you do with all that new data? Traditionally you'd need to export the data out of your form app, and then manually enter it by hand into any of the multitude of apps you use to run your business. But wouldn't it be great if that data automatically appeared in those other apps you're using? Enter Zapier.

    With Zapier, you can automatically have that data directly entered into other apps you're using. You could have leads go directly to your CRM or turn contact form entries directly into tickets in your help desk system—and so much more. We asked a few people who are automating their JotForm data with Zapier to share their stories on how they are getting the most out of automating their form entries.

  • (A product review for our friends at Template Monster)

    In the peak of their popularity for all-in-one themes, the guys from TemplateMonster have launched their most ambitious project yet – Monstroid.

    What exactly is Monstroid and why is it the only theme you need for WordPress sites? It’s like a Swiss army knife of WordPress Themes, for starting any WordPress-based website. It’s the result of thirteen years leading the world of website templates, so we decided to take a closer look.

  • JotForm has always been secure in our almost ten years of being the easiest online form builder. Well, we just raised the bar higher. Now you have the ability to designate your forms as encrypted. An Encrypted Form is one where the user’s responses are transferred and stored in an encrypted format. They are encrypted in the browser of the person filling out the form, and can’t be seen by anyone else at any time. This added level of security is of most interest to users handling the most sensitive data with extra privacy needs.
