    Can I use JotForm even without publishing it on a website?

    Asked by Cyclogirl on July 01, 2017 at 03:15 PM

    I wanted to create an optional online rsvp form (rather than filling out something manually and snail mailing it back)... but we don't have a "website" or anywhere to host it for this one time event.

    Is there a way to have a free standing form and give out the link to get to it? (so I guess, hosted by jotform)... 

    And is there a way to have a vanity url for it?  (maybe via bit.ly etc. or if jotform does that)... so it has an identifier of some sort... e.g. FranklinReunion

    Otherwise, I'll look into using an existing website that isn't theirs...but would rather not.

    Hey Christine - Sure, that won't be a problem. When you create a form, it comes with a unique URL, and you can use that standalone version of your form and just share the link with your respondents.
