  • When Adobe announced they were shutting down FormsCentral, users flooded our support forums looking to JotForm to be their alternative form building service. News spread quickly through our virtual halls that the fifth largest competitor in online form building, was closing. So we did what any respectable online form builder would do: we built a welcoming page for soon-to-be displaced FormsCentral users. And there was much rejoicing. The migration path is simple: navigate to the FormsCentral welcoming page, enter your Adobe FormsCentral login information, and all your forms and form responses will be imported to your new JotForm account.

    As of this writing we’ve imported upwards of 15,000 forms and 300,000 form responses, with many more coming in every day.

    Read on for more details on the process and how to import forms and form responses individually.

  • Due to popular demand JotForm has recently released a new version of our iOS App. Now our fellow JotForm users can check submissions from their forms wherever they are with ease!


    Available for download in the iTunes App Store:

  • When Adobe announced they were letting the sun set on FormsCentral, they were thoughtful enough to offer up just a couple alternatives that could pick up where they left of, including JotForm. We’re grateful to get the recommendation of Adobe, and we thought we’d expand on some reasons why JotForm is the perfect choice to replace Adobe’s soon-to-be defunct form builder.


  • Since the announcement of Adobe FormsCentral's retirement, we have worked closely with over 500 FormsCentral users to move them to JotForm. We took this job very seriously: we visually reviewed every single migrated form, sought feedback from our new users and improved our migration tool to the point of near perfection. 

    Today, we are excited to announce a new migration tool that can import all of your FormsCentral forms and form responses in a single step



    The path to migrating from FormsCentral to JotForm just got a whole lot easier, and better. Welcome to JotForm!


  • Adobe has announced that its form creation service, FormsCentral, is retiring on July 28, 2015. FormsCentral users, have no fear! JotForm is here to easily import your forms and help you make the switch to JotForm, your new alternative to FormsCentral. This will allow you to keep your form fields and data, so you can seamlessly transition without experiencing disruption.

  • You don’t need us to tell you that perfecting the resume submission process can be a burdensome task. Do you risk putting your email on the company website? Or if you have a resume upload option, what happens when the job is filled and the development team doesn’t have the time to remove the post? Worse yet, what if you’re not getting enough applicants directed to the site in the first place?


    Job posting sites, like Craigslist, offer an easy option for gathering applicants, but it doesn’t solve the problem of actually collecting applications. You need a form for that.
