    How do I get the forms to my clients to fill out?

    Asked by revjohnnyerato on June 22, 2011 at 10:20 AM

    I would rather not have the forms as part of my website.  Is there an alternate way?  Please advise.  Thank you.

    Hi there,

    Any Jotform that you create is available on the www.jotform.com webiste.  For example, your form is here;

    http://www.jotform.com/11713805115

    If you want to add new forms, just check the form ID and you will be able to get to it.  If you like you can email this address to your clients.

    However there are many other ways to share Jotforms, for example Facebook:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/tag/facebook

    Tumblr:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/tag/tumblr

    Or on any number of third party content management systems:

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Hi revjohnnyerato

    Thanks for asking. Sure there is a way to distribute your form without embedding it on your site. Load the form in question into the form builder and click Preview:


    Clicking the URL will select it for you to copy to your Windows clipboard (assuming you're using Windows), either with your keyboard [Ctrl + C] or right-clicking with your mouse and then clicking Copy:

    Then paste [Ctrl + V] that URL into emails you send to folk who you want to complete the form. As a matter of fact, you can deiliver the form's URL in whatever format you wish - even by dictating it over the phone or by regular (snail) mail!

    Should you require additional assistance with this or any other aspect of your form(s), please feel free to post your query and our team will gladly help where we can.

    Cheers.
