    How can I get the Form URL?

    Asked by ANDROSS on April 12, 2017 at 03:12 PM
    Also, how did you generate this link:  https://www.jotform.com/70865847374268    I didn't realize the forms had their own URL links.

    Each form you create will have its own unique URL. To get the URL of your form, just click PUBLISH at the top > QUICK SHARE on the left > then COPY LINK.

    Alternatively, just look at the address bar at the top of your browser while you're building a form and you'll see a long series of numbers. That will be your Form ID and appending it to https://www.jotform.com/ will be that exact same link.

    Thanks, though I don't think the Quick Share link allows for use of the Lightbox. I think the Lightbox is the only one that operates as a popup within the same window, which the user can close by clicking the top-right (x) button.


    I think the Quick Share link provides the form, but not in "pop-up" guise.

    That is correct. These links just open the form itself, in its pure form: a standalone web page.

    If you need further assistance please let us know. We will be happy to help. Thank you.

    Thanks. Yes, I do need further assistance please, as

    my goal is to have a CTA (Call To Action) link/button and when clicking on the CTA, it should open the JotForm in a pop-up.

    I have the form, but I don't know how to make things so that clicking on a CTA opens the form in a pop-up, not a new tab/standalone web page.

    Thank you!
