    I've embedded my JotForm in https://booking.starclinch.com/ but the form is taking more than 14 seconds to load. I've checked on google page speed and it has rated my page speed as very poor.


    Please resolve this issue as I'm buying 1 year subscription tomorrow and need to resolve it before making the purchase.

    The issue could be related to the embed method, as your form's direct link loads faster: https://form.jotform.me/73453968699480 

    Please try to embedding your form using the Iframe code: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    Thanks for your suggestion but it didn't work for me. Can you suggest something that I can implement in my JotForm so that it loads faster?

    I have forwarded this to our development team, to see if there is something that can be done to improve the loading time. You will be notified via this thread if there is any update.

    Hey starclinch,

    Did the 'Smart Embed' feature was on when you tried the page speed testing? It may be related to that feature as it tries to process your website to match the form design (It is a one time only process which should take at max 5-10 secs).

    That aside, after investigating your page load time, I saw that the background image and couple files related to the widgets are the things that slow down your website load time at the moment. You can see the load times at rightmost corner.

    I will be also investigating this issue and return you as soon as possible.

    Holla cem,

    As suggested by you, I've turned on the "Smart Embed" feature in my JotForm but the results are the same.

    There's absolutely no change in the loading time of the form, which is not understandable as it is just a form and should load as fast as lightning.

    Please resolve the issue at the earliest. Thanks!

    I will inform our developer that the issue is not resolved even when you turned on the "Smart Embed" feature. 

    We will inform you via this thread once this issue is resolved.

    I made a test in my device and in my case the form was opened in 6.8 seconds. I would suggest to compress the images used in the form as they take the longer to download.

    You will be notified by our developers as soon as possible. Thank you!

    Yes, but even loading time of 6.8 seconds is huge. It should not take more than 2-3 seconds for a form to load.

    I request your development team to optimize the performance of my JotForm

    I am sorry for any inconvenience caused, our developers are still looking for a solution to reduce the loading time. Looks like this is requiring more time to analyze the widgets and the elements. You will be notified soon on this thread. Thank you for your patience.

    Hey starclinch,


    Sorry for the late answer but we are still working on this issue. The reason it takes too long is that changes in widgets will be effecting our whole system. Therefore, we need to be sure that the modifications we are going to do will solve and not cause any further problem.

    I will be updating this thread as soon as we have solved the issue.

    It has been more than a month since I've been trying to get a resolution from your developers. I've been reassured time and again that the issue will be resolved but now, I don't see any ray of hope.

    Please have the audacity to decline my request but give me an answer. This is the least I can expect being a Silver Plan user.

    Hey,

    There is a an ongoing improvement on widgets by other developers; but I cannot give an estimated time of arrival for this project at the moment.

    In the mean time, I would suggest you to switch using form fields instead of widgets. For example, for sliders, you can replace them with emoji slider and change the input type under fields tab. That is also true for phone field. It will defiantly improve the load performance of the form.
