    How can I use JotForm as an intake method for student information?

    Asked by Janae Petropoulos  on March 07, 2014 at 07:29 PM
    Hello,I am a co-chair for my daughter's school student directory. I am interested in using JotForm as a way to gather the students' information from the parents in an electronic format. Can you tell me if your website is user friendly? Also, if I can export the information in an Excel format after it has been collected? Another school in our district is using JotForm for the same purpose. Is there a way to share their format between the two schools? And what kind of support do you offer in case I have questions?My initial thought is to leave the form open for one month and let the parents respond within that time period. Thank you, Janae Petropoulos
