    Can you please let me know if we upgraded our membership to Silver whether the sub-user accounts would still be limited to 5 forms and 100 returns per month?

    If the sub-users create any forms in their Free accounts normal limits as you mentioned above will be applicable as of free account. 

    Free Plan

    100 monthly submissions

    10 monthly payment submissions

    1,000 monthly form views 

    5 total forms

    100MB total space

    500 total submission storage


    If you create a form in your Silver account and share it with sub-user, limits will be applicable based on your account plan and not of sub-user account plan.

    Have a look at this guide about how to share your forms with sub-users: How-to-Share-Forms-with-a-Sub-account-User 

    If you need any other details, please feel free to let us know.

    Thank you.

    Dear Olivia
    Yes I understand about sharing forms as we currently do this as well. However the problem I have as a sub-user is that I see all of the forms that have ever been created on the main account – including those that have been archived by the main account user and do not appear in her view any more. I understand that this is because they have not been permanently deleted. This is very frustrating however as it means I have to scroll through all the forms to find the one that I want.
    Is there any way that a sub-user can have more than 5 forms/100 monthly returns without having to buy a whole new account?

    Unfortunately, you cannot create more than 5 forms under the Free account. If your account was grandfathered before the number of forms limit, then you can keep these forms. However, you cannot create a new one or restore a deleted form.

    You can increase the monthly submissions by performing the tasks provided in this page: https://www.jotform.com/myaccount/getMore.

    You can see the all the forms from the main account because the main user provided you an access to all of the forms. Here's a screenshot:

    I would recommend you transfer the active form to the main account which is under the Bronze plan. In this way, the submission limits that will be applied to the main account.

    If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
