  • Most users enjoy the simplicity of JotForm. Build a form, post it on your website, and receive email notifications every time someone responds. This keeps a great many JotForm customers happy. Sometimes you want to do more with the information you collect, though. Perhaps you want to build a web page based on your form responses. For this JotForm gives you a full API to access your data whenever you want.

    The Washington Post recently found JotForm to be the right tool for a special project. They set up a jotform to collect information on cooking classes. The goal was to create a dynamically constructed web page that would connect to JotForm and post the latest updates on the class.

  • Form creators should try to seek a delicate balance between collecting all of the needed information and making sure that the form visitor completes the form all the way through. To achieve the highest conversion rate possible, the form must be concise. Especially for more time-consuming and intensive forms, every form field that lacks an excellent user experience risks abandonment. Luckily, JotForm offers 382 widgets that can make your form better. Here are some highlighted widgets that can save you time.

  • Earth Day is a time for us to celebrate, recognize, reflect, and commit to preserving the planet that we all share. With billions of people on earth, lands and oceans teeming with flora and fauna, we need to respect our environment to keep our planet happy and healthy. During this week people join together to clean roads, ride bikes, plant trees, donate to environmental charities, switch to eco friendly lightbulbs, and help the environment in any number of other ways. What better way to facilitate these activities than with a form! Check out these eco-friendly forms made with our Form Designer.

  • It’s not every day you reach the millionth usage of something. That’s why we were so excited when we realized that in just 15 months JotForm widgets reached one million uses. These embeddable fields bring specialized features to your forms. They give you the ability to create image sliders, take photos, add YouTube videos, or collect signatures. With approaching 400 widgets to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

  • We double-dog dare you to find an industry that relies on online forms more than higher education. OK, maybe that’s not necessary. But facts are facts: universities today run on online forms; now more than ever before.  

    Tens of thousands of course surveys, professor assessments, prospective student information requests, admission and scholarship applications, brochure downloads, enrollment forms, IT requests and donation forms are used every single day. Heck, even voting for the homecoming king and queen is a task made easier using online forms.

    So with that we thought we’d help out with some suggestions to help make your university’s online forms spectacular.
