    I'm reaching out because my organization and I are considering transferring to Jotform from Typeform/SurveyMonkey. It would be helpful to have some materials to share with leadership to inform our decision. Do you have any one-pagers highlighting the key features of Jotform? What makes Jotform better than Typeform and SurveyMonkey? What features/enhancements/efficencies does Jotform have that Typeform/SurveyMonkey doesn't? Do you have a comparison chart? What well-named organizations use your platform? I saw Facebook and BBC, but if you have a list of various organization names or featured names that can be shared, that would be great.

    One main reason we're considering Jotform is for its itegration with AirTable, MailChimp and other platforms we use. Could you provide more information on the set-up process, benefits and any limitations of integration with AirTable/MailChimp?

    This information would be extremely helpful to share as a package with my leadership. I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

    Greetings Cori.

    To see Jotform's Frequently Asked Questions, please visit the following page:

    You can also see some basic features on the following help page:

    You can click here to see a comparison chart between Jotform and TypeForm. If you click here, you will see some key differences. You can also use this tool to simply import all forms and submissions from TypeForm to your new Jotform account.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a similar comparison chart for Survey Monkey.

    Any Jotform integration is easy to set up. You need to select it from the list of available integrations, enter your credentials (email, API key, etc), and configure what data you wish to be sent. Every integration is triggered instantly, as soon as the submission is sent and submission data is available in third-party applications almost instantly.

    Our developers worked hard to make every integration work seamlessly, with many options available, however, if you notice that something is missing, please let us know and we will forward it to our developers.

    You can click here to see how to integrate AirTable, and here to see how to use MailChimp integration.

    Please note that Jotform also has advanced tables feature you can use instead of AirTable. You can find out more here.

    Finally, feel free to create a free Jotform account, which has all the options available, so you can test it.

    If you have any additional questions, please let us know.
