    Hi,
    I am new to jot form.  so version 3 is the current one right? 

    is there a form wizard, for really large forms?  does it save as the user goes through it,  it seems that v2 had it.

    so i am clear there will be an update when a user completes their form they can see a pdf version of their form with their entries?  about when will this be launched?

    > I  am new to jot form.  so version 3 is the current one right?

    Yes, this is version 3.

    > is there a form wizard, for really large forms? 

    No, there is no form wizard. The older version had a form wizard but it had nothing to do with large forms. I am not sure what you mean by "form wizard, for really large forms"? 

    > does it save as the user goes through it,  it seems that v2 had it.

    No, the older version did not have auto-save. The new version has auto-save. So, it saves the form while you are creating it.

    We never had such feature and we do not have any plans for such a feature. I am not sure what the user would do with a PDF version of their form with their entries? Why do you need that?

    Wow, quick response!!!

    form wizard as in, page one has 20 fields, user hits next, saves it and another 20 fields show up. 

    Anything like this?


    as for pdf, the user would like a pdf version of the form for their records, i know a little counter intuitive. 

    does you system email the users with their form entries?

    i see the page break feature is like the form wizard i am thinking.  so that answers that. 

    i see you have a user  notification  with the fields they fill out, so that would address the pdf feature i am looking for. 

    wow this tool is awesome!!!!  i wish i had this years ago!!

    Yes, Page Break feature is under "Survey Tools" on the left toolbox.

    as for pdf, the user would like a pdf version of the form for their records, i know a little  counter intuitive. 

    Unfortunately, nothing like that is available.

    does you system email the users with their form entries?

    Yes, it does. More details here:

    You can print the responses from Submissions page. It will print nicely like a PDF.

    so i am clear, is there a way that a visitor after  entering data, for them to see a consolidated view of their responses?    I think the above answer talks abouts admin view of responses.

    No, there is no way for users to see their answers on the web page after the submission.

    However, you can create an autoresponder and email their responses to them.
