    You are asking if there is a way to build it so that a form could be used offline to later upload through the use of an online tool when re-connected to the internet or something of that sort?

    Unfortunately, that is not possible.

    JotForm is an online service and your forms require an active internet connections in order to function correctly. Your forms use this submit the inputted data when received with server-based functionality and programming.

    There are only two ways around this problem if you wish to use the form offline. One way would be to create a pdf of your form and gather the data to manually upload later on. Or the other way would be to alternatively collect your related form data into a spreadsheet then send it via our Import App.
