    I changed my source code in my form and I don't know how I can upload it in my forms (in JotForm).

    Anyone knows?

    Thanks!

    You can't upload back the form source to Jotform. Using the form source is just another way of embedding your form to your website. The only difference in using the form source is that you'll be able to customize the form with your own custom script like if there are some function that the form builder can't do.

    Other thing is that form source loads a little bit faster since you are using the form source itself so it loads locally in your server.

    The downside of using form source is that whenever you update some fields in you form you need to grab a fresh copy of your source code then re-embed it your site unlike when you use script tag any updates done will automatically show.

    Thanks for your answer!

    You know how to put in form (if - else) in some areas so the displays by selecting this option?

    It can be done without somehow I change the code?

    Sorry but form source code can't be uploaded back to your form in the form builder. You have to embed to your site or save it as html file and upload it to your server.

    In what part you're trying to customize or add functions to your form? If that involves custom scripts then form source code is your best bet otherwise if that's just customizing text, colors and etc. then that's possible in the form builder by injecting custom CSS to your form without going through the form source code.

    However, if you're referring to form conditions, (if-else?) then that can be done in the form builder. http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic
