    Step 3: Enter the email address of the User with whom you wish to share your Form or Forms.

    Step 4: Then select the Folder or Forms you want to Share and click "Create". It will then tell you that an invitation email has been sent. Both folders and forms will give you the option to allow viewing and/or editing the form. Your sub-user can even create a form directly into your main account. T

    They will then be able to log into JotForm to view the shared forms as a sub-account user of the main account.

    Step 6: If they already Have a JotForm account, then all they need to do is login to their Account.
