    Force.com, Zoho or JotForm?

    Sorry, I somehow submitted this before I had asked a question.  :(

    I am in the process of building 2 web sites, both of which will require a database program to build forms to collect data and to then build a form to search and return data from the search and display it on web site.

    I.E., a form to collect information about a property someone wants to advertise and a form for someone looking for property to be able to narrow down the search to, first, a list of all properties that match the search and, second. to desplay a detailed page on one of the properties selected from that list.

    I have looked at Force/SalesForce and Zoho - both good programs - but can the same end result be done easier with JotForm?

    Tks - I do appreciate it - Jim

    Hello Jim,

    First off, I'd like to thank you for taking interest in Jotform.

    To answer your question, yes it is possible and easy to create a form to collect information with Jotform. Our Form Builder is packed with a lot of features that will outperform our competitors when it comes to form creation.  However, upon reading your requirements, I came to the conclusion that what you want to achieve is a full-pledged listing/classifieds platform and while I believe Jotform is one of the best, if not the best, form creators out there, it has limited functions to serve as a listing/classifieds alternative.

    Hope this post answers your query. Again, thank you for taking interest.

    Joomla has an extensive directory of plugins. Try searching for a plugin that can serve that purpose.

    UPDATE: In case you would like to use both JotForm and Salesforce, we have finally released integration with Salesforce:



    You can now integrate JotForm forms with Salesforce. You can even map form fields with your Salesforce lead/contact fields.
