    I JotFom,

    I try to integrate my form following instructions and with different codes, but failed. I will try another time with a new form exactly the same.

    Do you think I failed because my web site Microsoft 365 is not on line? I'm buiding the site and near the end of the work it need.

    I will be happy to have your answer on it.

    Many thanks.

    If you need more informations, let me know.

    GL

    GL,

    As much as we'd love to help you, there would be no way for us to find out what causes the problem unless we're able to see the site and inspect it for ourselves.

    Would you mind uploading a test version of your site?

    We look forward to your prompt response. Thanks!

    Hi Neil,

    Thank you for your answer. Is the following adress page enough for you ? I don't know what to do to « upload a test version » of my site. 

    Thank you Neil.

    Sorry but I can't see anything on the URL you gave me. After conducting further research though, I have found out that MS Office 365 is a cloud-based software subscription service, much like Google Docs, but I don't see any provision for a website creation.

    I therefore conclude that you cannot use Office 365 to host a website and embed a form.

    Perhaps you might want to try other web hosting services. There are free ones such as Google Sites, Blogger, Tumblr, etc.

    The services I mentioned above are readily supported by JotForm. In fact, we have existing user guides that are specific to those services.

    I take back my previous message about Microsoft 365 not being able to host web pages. In fact, SharePoint does allow webpage creation.

    The problem is that external HTML support is limited at best. I could not even find real documentation as to how custom HTML can be added to pages.

    Below are a few of the forum topics tackling this matter (with MS support staff vaguely answering the questions):

    http://community.office365.com/en-us/forums/153/p/61605/231064.aspx#231064

    http://community.office365.com/en-us/forums/154/p/43940/160898.aspx

    To me it seems that Office 365 might not be the best solution for hosting webpages. In my opionion, you are better off using a different service for this purpose.

    Thank you Neil. I agree with you. 365 is probably not the best solution for hosting webpages. But, for the moment, I will go with it. A staff member answered me minutes ago, that I should try with the help of the gadget PayPal, one of the site's builder tools. I'm going to try immediately.

    Hi Neil,

    I don't know exactly how, but I'm able now to click on « Ask a devis » I wrote on my site and switch to another page displaying the JotForm. I should have the form on the same page. I did not try what the staff member suggest to me. Maybe later. But for now, it is not to bad. I try it and it seems working well ! Strangely enough, I heard some noise from time to time, or every 5 minutes from my laptop ! Put put put ! Put put put... put put !Strange.

    Thank you. Any answer welcome.
