    Can Jotforms be used offline?

    Asked by reades on November 25, 2013 at 10:56 AM


    Sendero Drilling is currently working with your Jotform application.  It works nearly to our expectations.  Our drilling rigs are often remote and on occasion might encounter situations with no connectivity to the internet.  does Jotforms have the capability of working in offline situations?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Let me inform you that Jotform does not have the capability to work offline currently. However, let me forward your request to our Development team so that they can consider your suggestion and maybe Jotform has this capability in the future.

    If we have any available information about the progress on this, you will get the update via this thread.

    A little thinking outside the box: Surely if @reades exports the source code then you can direct the form to a page on the same server/computer on the oil rig and save the data?


    That way you can use JotForm to make a nice fully validated form, but deal with the saving your self?

    @ timbaker1991

    I also agree with your idea. Using the form's source code and this guide Form-to-MySQL will allow you to save data to your end.

    The form will just be like a detached front-end UI.

    If the data is successfully collected (to any database), then it can be imported back to a live/online form using import apps like this one http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data
