    Hello seth

    I came across this questions as I was looking to see if we could use jotforms offline. Do you know how long it will be before you launch the ability to fill in forms offline and then sync the data once you have internet access.

    To answer your question about using jotforms offline no we generally do not promise any time frame since some features in development may take longer than expected on occasion.

    Thank you for your response, I do understand that it is very difficult to give a specif time frame. i was more looking for an idea is it in development, something you would like to develop in the future but haven't started work on yet etc etc.

    I think this feature would push jotforms over the top of all other form builders. I love how easy it is to use. It basically runs my entire company customer and staff interaction. However the ability to do some of this offline and sync when it gets internet is something that I am continual looking for and require.

    So even if you could say we hope launch it in the next 3, 12, 24,etc etc months (development dependant), it would really help me to plan my strategy for the future development of our forms.

    You are welcome and where you are coming from on that with asking for just a rough idea.

    I did not say because honestly I do not know yet. The last thing I knew was that it was supposed to be included and functioning with the release of our 4.0 Formbuilder but was pulled for the time being probably because it wasn't fully ready enough or more than likely because our developers wanted to focus on ensuring the new Formbuilder would be working properly first.

    We've had tons and tons of requests for offline usage which was the reason behind the Create PDF Form feature even though it isn't as close to what everyone is wanting or expecting.

    As far as I know our company is already aware of the problem and request for such a feature that has been in heavy demand. So I believe something like this may be fairly soon in the coming months but again, I do not know therefore I cannot make any guarantees.
