    We will be using the forms to collect data and I wanted to know if you have to be consistently connected to the internet to do so or does the form save it locally and then can upload later?

     

    Is the only way to receive the data is via-email or going to the website? Preferably we would like to only receive the data via the website.

    Unfortunately, you have an internet access at all times to connect with JotForm servers. Forms created on JotForm is not designed to save submitted data locally for offline uses.

    There are other suggestions contained on this thread that could work on your situation:
