    The Joform Team is proud to present the following updates for this week: 


    -JotForm Anywhere

    We have released a widget for website editors: JotForm Anywhere
    This is a JavaScript SDK that allows any web page builder to bring all capabilities of JotForm to their users. 
    We have a simple demo that shows how it works. You can download both client side and server side code for it here.

    1. PAYMENT WIZARD: PRODUCTS  Custom options can now have their own prices.




    So, for example, you might want to offer T-Shirts with different prices based in their Size. However, you might also want to offer these T-shirts in a variety of colors.
    If someone wants to purchase 8 T-shirts of  same size , but she wants 3 Pink t-shirts and 5 red ones, now it is possible to set up the payment integration in that way, so it will show like this. You can even set different prices based on the available colors/size

    2.  PURCHASE ORDER TOOL: Pakistani currency (PKR)  added

     It is now possible to establish a limit on the number of recurring charges  on Subscriptions

    -Survey Tools:   
    Update:   In the past, users would still submit the form even if the input value was greater than the total value in the Grading tool .
    We have added a validation to detect if the given value exceeds the maximum total value.

    We also added a new validation to ONLY input numeric values


    We have added the ability to go to next line when you enter a HINT TEXT into a Text area or a HOVER TEXT. This will make the text to wrap up more easily

    Simply  press the SHIFT+ENTER   and then press ENTER . This is very useful when forms are displayed on mobiles , specially those using Safari.

    2.  LIGHTBOX :
    Users asked  for having a lightbox Form to be able to close if the mouse was clicked outside the form, so we  heard you!

    We recorded some issues regarding to e-signature field we just added, honestly putting canvas into our forms first time cause more troubles than we expected. With help of our customers' feedbacks we re-wrote e-signature field, in this new version:

    - now we are using jSignature  for signature pad (thanks to those guys)
    - multiple signatures can be used and seen in submissions and reports
    - required fields of canvas looks better
    - IE7-8 related bugs hopefully resolved

    I'm not clear on how that JotForm Anywhere works or the purpose of it...?  Can you elaborate?   I went to the demo, but when I tried to play with it, it only gave me an invalid url message.


    Also, a feature you said you might add would be for a way for us to manage our client accounts easier... I am running out of emails, as you require a separate one for each account I open for a client.

    I was hoping you might come up with some kind of dashboard system yet?  That would be great, although I think also a separate "client" log in would be necessary, just in case you have to give up the acount and remove it from your dashboard.

    I believed that is discussed on this blog: It is designed specifically for web builder applications e.g. Wix,  they can now integrate JotForm to their application for an easier form building tool. 

    The demo shows fine on my side: 



    You might be referring to the sub-account feature under your My Accounts page? Well that is how it is desinged for, it requires an email to send an invitation with all the shared forms.

    We will take note of that. We'd suggest to open that in a new thread for a feature request. Thank you!

    Can we have CUSTOM currency added to the Purchase Order widget.

    Unless you would consider adding the Ghanaian CEDI, although I doubt there will be as many requests for that specifically.

    I would suggest creating a separate thread questioning the same so we can forward that to our developers.
