      I have an event coming up and I created a volunteer request form using jotform.  I have hundreds of volunteers to coordinate and have been losing volunteers as they can't get the form to submit.  It submits fine for me but doesn't submit for anyone else. I cleared the cache yesterday but am still getting reports today that the form isn't working. People say that it just spins when they try to submit.

    I really need help quickly as my event is in a few weeks and I'm panicking a bit about getting enough people.


    Edit - I was able to duplicate using a browser that I haven't ever used before.  I can submit on browsers I've submitted forms on but people who haven't ever used JotForms can't submit on my form. FYI.. I used the appointment slots widget but just have name/email/phone number inputs and a simple drop down.

    Apologies for the inconveniences this may have caused to you. 

    I have been checking your form and it seems to be working on my end:


    I used Chrome the latest version, please feel free to delete my testing submission to get the slot available again. 

    Which browser were you using when you replicated the issue? 

    I would recommend you to check that JavaScript is enabled since that may be causing the issue: 

    Also, make sure that there is not any add-on/plugin installed that may cause the problem. 

    We will wait for your response.

    I have now been able to duplicate on chrome, IE and Edge.  Please do a few things:

    1) clear your cache

    2) choose something from the "Sunday" time, preferably in the 2-4 or 4-6 time slot and leave the section expanded when you submit

    I've seen it not submit now across all of my browsers.  I support our technology tools  for a living and I know it's broken. I hate to be a jerk but I'm getting a bit tired of the "it works for me" responses.  There is an issue. I would LOVE to get on a skype call and show you - let me know.

    Sounds like someone validated on your side that there is an issue.

    I could not replicate the issue on a cloned form of yours, I left only one widget field and cleared my forms cache as well as  browser's cache, but the form still works as expected: 

    However, I replicated the issue on your form following the steps you provided. Here is the error on the web console: 


    I have tried clearing your forms cache and updating the widget, but the issue was still there so I will open a ticket for this so our developers can have a look on it. 

    We will keep you updated via this thread.
