    Hi,

    Currently I no longer have access to our server to embed forms.  Back then I could, embed all our forms to allow me to do custom formatting not available otherwise.

    I don't believe you have a server available to allow this. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might accomplish this now? 

    Best Regards Robert

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you do not have any server but still want to use Jotform?

    It is not a requirement to have your own server. You can create form in Jotform and share your form's direct URL with your users. The following guide should help you how to grab your form's direct URL:  https://www.jotform.com/help/401-Where-to-Find-My-Form-URL 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Hi,

    i did not explain what I was asking very well.

    My current forms all reside on your servers and that is OK 

    Recently we moved our website to new servers managed by a hosting company. Because of this move I can no longer embed any of the forms like I did for years. If want to customize with script or do some other functions I can no longer do this.

    My questions are, 

    1) We have a G-Suite account and I know Google has a web building tool, what I don't know is it possible to embed the form code into a Google web page and use the form that way?

    2) Can you offer any suggestions about another server to host the html code so that I can accomplish this? 


    Best Regards Robert

    If you want to embed your form in your own server, you can download the full source code: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    On regards of suggesting you servers to host your form, that is something you or you webmaster need to check, and determine, so you know which hosting provider best suits your needs.

    Hi,

    No that was not exactly what I wanted.

    Yes I may have to contact our new site managers to see if they will allow me to do this as I was the webmaster, not likely though. 

    I may have answered my own question (1), I have been able to embed the source on a Google site page. This allows me to do some custom coding although there are some limitations I will have to learn how to deal with. 

    If you or any of your colleagues are familiar with using Google site and can provide some insight that might be helpful in using Jotform forms with it, I would appreciate it.

    In any case, I thank you,

    Regards Robert
