    I'm interested in using the functionality of JotForm with dropbox. My question is (more specifically) Can I create an Assignment Form blank template that students can access from within my class dropbox folder for use when they are ready to hand in their assignments? Thanks

    Hi,

    I am not sure if I'm following your question. You do understand that the Dropbox integration allows files uploaded to a JotForm be sent over to your Dropbox folder, right? Can you tell us what exactly do you mean by an "assignment form blank template".  Is it a file, a form, or what?

    Hi

    I want a stand alone form, accessible from my website that my students can use to upload their assignments to my dropbox folder. And I want this form to be able to be used for each and every one of their assignments.

    thanks

    Hi fralick,

    To answer on behalf of Neil, I don't see any problem in using your form for your assisnments. But be reminded that it is best practice to download all of your submissions and files befofe you edit your form for the next assisgnment to ensure that you do not lose a copy of the submissions from  your students.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for considering JotForm in making your class more efficient.

    Thank you. Just one more question. As an administrator, I would like to make this form available to all my teachers. How do I link it to our website?

    THanks again

    You're welcome, fralick. In order to share the form with your students, you can either:

    a. Create a hyperlink in your website to your form. Just insert a code with the similar format as below to anywhere in your webpage's code:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.jotform.com/form/<11-digit form id>">click here to open form</a>

    OR

    b. Use one of the embed codes in our Embed Code Wizard that you can copy and paste into your website's coding. Among the choices include the default <script> code, the full source code, iframe, lightbox, among others. To open the Embed Form Wizard, click the Embed Form button under the Setup & Embed tab of the toolbar.

    We hope you find this information helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
