  • At JotForm, we were so blown away by the forms being designed using our brand new Form Designer, that we thought: “Can these form designs honestly get any better?” 

    We were determined to find out; and so the Web Form Design Awards were born.

    This ambitious project gives our users complete control of their form designs. Our previous form design options were limited to basic sizing, color selection, and font selection.

  • Did you know that as many as 69% of the visitors to your form leave without completing it? And if you don’t have access to any meaningful form statistics it is virtually impossible to know exactly what triggers this desertion, or how to improve it.

    This is why we are excited to announce our integration with Formisimo - an easy to use form analytics tool, designed to track every visitor interaction with your forms, and give you advanced data and insights into their behaviour.

    Why use Formisimo?

    Formsimo will enable you to make informed decisions on exactly what to improve, cut out or change to improve your form conversions. You can see exactly where users struggle to complete your form, where they drop out, which fields they have to correct the most, how long it takes them to complete, and much more.

  • Forms are boring. Nobody says “I wish I made more forms” on their death bed. That’s where JotForm comes in and saves the day. Spend your time with family, friends and fun stuff, not with forms. :) 

    JotForm’s mission is to be quickest way to create web forms. In our early days we had the tagline “Easiest Form Builder.” Today, the bar is higher. Our mission is the save you time. Here are some of the tools and ideas we came up with to help you save time.

    1) Form Templates
    2) Every Form Should Be As Simple As Possible, But Not Simpler
    3) Clone Form
    4) “Duplicate Fields” on Form Builder
    5) “Manage Fields” on Form Builder
    6) Field Manager App
    7) Configurable List Widget

  • PayPal is the most popular payment gateway on JotForm. We help our users process over 5 million dollars in transactions every month using PayPal.  Today, we are excited to announce a new option for payment forms: PayPal Express Checkout.

    Why should you prefer PayPal Express Checkout?
    The best way to increase conversion rates is to make the checkout process as simple as possible. PayPal Express Checkout helps you with that. Instead of redirecting users to PayPal's site, a small pop-up with a PayPal login form launches, the user completes the payment quickly and submits the form. Payment can be done in a single step. Quick and easy for your users, and more revenue for you! :)

  • JotForm is amazingly customizable. We wanted to showcase it. So, our team has created some great looking form templates. We have added 50 new templates in the last 3 months. They all have original designs. Today, I’d like to share some of my favorites with you.

    This is a simple form but I love the typography and the simplicity.

  • One of the first things that every web site should do is to build and maintain a mailing list. JotForm is an easy way to create sign-up forms and start building your list. The problem for many marketers is what do they do next. Obviously, you need to start interacting with your list and begin telling them about all the products and services you offer and all the ways you can help them. But the difficulty often arises, how can you easily manage emails on your lists? As your list continues to grow, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep track of everything that you need to remember about your list members. Well, there is now a solution: JotForm integration with INinbox.

  • We have a great news! If you have a Facebook page you can now use our new JotForm Tab Facebook app to embed a form on your Facebook page.



  • ClinchPad is a modern CRM system which unlike traditional CRM software focuses on deals rather than contacts. Its main focus is on managing your sales pipeline through an intuitive visual interface. It is targeted at small teams who need something simple to manage their business leads rather than large sales teams.

  • We are excited to announce our new Form Calculation Widget, an amazingly powerful math engine for your forms. We've worked together with many JotForm users to find the perfect set of calculation features to make this widget easy, fun and powerful.

    So, if you are looking to introduce simple additions/subtractions to your forms or even advanced mathematical equations this widget is exactly what need.


  • I am excited about the growth we have been seeing with Form Templates. It has turned out to be the greatest addition we've made to JotForm. We released it almost two years ago and the usage numbers are staggering. 

    People have shared 5,000 forms on Form Templates. And, those templates were used 640,000 times to create new forms. We did some experiments comparing the amount of time it takes to create forms from scratch versus using templates. Creating forms using form templates saves about 10 minutes for each form. So, according to our estimates, Form Templates have saved our users over 100,000 hours

  • It is one of the worst feelings. Spending hours on a document and suddenly losing it all. We all have horror stories. We chalk it up as a learning experience and move on. That's actually a good way to learn to save our work and keep regular backups.

    On a personal level, I re-live this feeling pretty much once every week. I read a message from a JotForm user who lost her work. Sometimes it is our fault and sometimes it is just bad luck. Whatever the reason is, I just can't get rid of the feeling of guilt when someone loses her work on JotForm. That’s why we had to do something about it.

    Today, we are excited to introduce Form Revision History: Review your recent changes and revert your form back to an older version.

  • jotText is an SMS service for your JotForm forms. jotText can send text notifications to you when someone completes one of your forms. It can also help you create marketing campaigns for your customers.

  • Leftronic is a web based service that allows you to create real-time dashboards for your  business or organization. We are excited to announce that Leftronic has just added integration with JotForm

  • Today, we are releasing JotForm Form Widgets. What is a form widget? It is basically a field you can add to your form. It could be a youtube video or a drawing board. Widgets let you create better forms with less effort.
