    Hello professionalbox1

    Thanks for asking. No, there's no need to save your form to your desktop and then add it to your site. The form needs to be embedded on the site. That can be done in a number of ways.

    Open your form in the form builder and while on the "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Embed Form".

    Summary: My Forms > Select form > Edit > Embed From > Follow the instructions in the wizard.

    Please read this article in our User Guide for more information.

    By all means, feel free to post questions about any other matter related to your form(s) about which you may be uncertain and our team will be glad to assist as best as we can.

    Jotforms cannot be saved on your desktop per se, but you can save the source code into a text file or an html file (if you have a local web server) for testing purposes although the forms still communicate to our servers unless you remove the script that does that.

    You can copy the whole source code and save it to your computer. Like what abajan said above, you need to go to the Embed Form Wizard but be sure to choose Source.


    You can then edit the form using your favorite WYSIWYG or text-based editor. Be cautious in editing though, you do not want to mess up the codes that make the form work.
