    How can I use my form?

    Asked by Randy4089 on September 04, 2014 at 11:25 AM



    Yesterday, 9/3/14, I entered your web site for the first time and registered for the free trial. I created a sample form as a test and I wanted to see how it would look saved to my hard drive.  I appears it is saved as a web  document and it will not open when I click on the "E" icon.  Is there a way to view and use it in open text?  I am interested in a paid subscription  however I will probably only create between 5-10 forms per year.  Pls call me or respond back to me at cutirandy@gmail.com  or rcuti@aol.com.  (321) 271-0425  EST.  Florida


    Form created is named: SIU Manager Weekly Activity

    Hello Randy4089,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. 

    How do you intend to use your form? Do you want ti to embed it in your website or you want to download the form's source code and use it?

    If you want to embed your form in your website, you need to download the desired form embed code and add it in your webpage. The following guides should help you:




    If you want to download your form's source code, the following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form  

    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
