    5.JOTFORM ANYWHERE!  How They Use It 

    Since we released JotForm Anywhere two months ago we have received great interest about it. JoForm Anywhere is an easy way to add form building capabilities to any web site builder. We work closely with the companies to make sure the integration is flawless. Breezi and Sidengo were first to implement JotForm Anywhere in their web design builders.

    6. New Editor Options for Text Area Fields

    Entering long text on the browser textarea can be painful. That's why we are always on the lookout for improvements we can make on the form user interface. Today, we are excited to release two new additions to our Text Area field. You can see a demo form here.  

    Rich Text Editor

    Instead of just plain text let users format styles of their entries.



    1. Advanced color picker in Firefox is now working!

    When users clicked on a color, for example yellow, the hex box would not change to that color

    but it always defaulted to black.


    Now this is fixed! 


    2.  GETMORE PAGE : People were unable to see the GETMORE PAGE on IE: Fixed! 

    3. “Other” option on required radio buttons was showing an error message. Our users reported to us this error:


    4. UPLOAD FIELDS: Duplicated multiple upload fields will not allow to send files with same name twice




    5 BILLING: Customer could not reactivate his subscription because Continue button was inactive


    6. Broken link on files with special characters  : Symbols such as (%, $, &,) or  rtl  language characters caused links to uploaded files to get broken 


    100% love to JotForm!.txt 

    lorim & ipsum files+updates.txt 


    7. Conditional logics Wizard Enhanced!

    7.1.  It was hard to manage long forms with long field titles   


    Now long field titles are not a problem anymore!  

    7.2 Scroll all conditions wizard pages so that many actions can be viewed

    If you had a lot of conditions it is was hard to find the updated one. now you can scroll down

    This was the problem before 


    7.3 Add a Condition Link to each form field near to Delete & properties field icons. That will bring you to Conditions Wizard, and will focus completely on that form field alone  


     8. Confirmation email - document upload link is showing up again, thanks to our users for reporting this to us:  

    This was the previous issue:


    9.  Re-Captcha is now working the same way as regular Captcha ! 

    -If the submit button is clicked when the Re-Captcha is empty, an error message appears

     -If the submit button is clicked and the Re-Captcha is incorrectly completed, a second Re-Captcha (as opposed to the default type of Captcha) is loaded 

    10. 'Clear form' button now resets not only the input data but  all show/hide conditions !  


    11. Boxnet integration was creating multiple folders of submissions, so it was hard to navigate

    -Added the ability to choose "No Folder" on setting up Boxnet Integration

    -So far the SubmissionID is also added to the list of options 

    -Prefix date checkbox option of Boxnet integration is also now available.So that when a form owner wants to attach the Date of the submission to the Submission folder they can do so by just checking the checkbox
