    Hello JotForm team!

    We are considering opening an account with you but I have one question before I ask for the go ahead.

    We travel a lot. We go to conventions and road shows and we do not always have internet connection (sometimes we have to setup in big concrete buildings). Other form generators have what they call a kiosk mode where the form stores the data in the device and uploads them once it's back online.

    I could not find any mention of such a function on your webpage. Is storing data offline possible with JotForm and if not, is there a clever way you guys came up to make up for that?

    Thank you for your help!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to collect data offline, but as an alternative you may use a PDF version of your form, that can be saved locally and submitted once you're back online. 

    Please find all the info related to such feature on the following guides:

    I hope this helps.
