    We're interested in your services and would like to join your professional plan.

    Just one question. Could I make a form for people to do searching?

    For example, the form is called "Tracking". There would be a field for people to input an "order id" and search for a tracking number that corresponds to the order id.

    Would you provide such feature?

    Hi Roy,

    Thank you for your interest in JotForm - the fastest, easiest online form builder! At this time, JotForm doesn't have search abilities. JotForm is primarily for building differen forms for purposes like registration, surveys, data gathering, payment receiving, among others. Search features require backend database processing and JotForm currently doesn't have this.

    Anytime you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    How about just for searching on page?  We are looking to create an order form, but we have many products and would love for customers to be able to type in a search for items input on the form...
