    Do I need to have a website to use these form?

    Asked by Simmone Anderson  on October 28, 2014 at 08:30 PM

    I want to use a form as a screening tool for recruitment for a short-term project. I do not have a web site. I plan to advertise my short term project on CraigsList and I want people to click on a link and then complete the form. Will JotForm accommodate this type of scenario or do I need to use something else to accomplish this?

    Also, many times when I post CraigsList ads people reply to the post via email to ask a question or get more information. I want to be able to attach the link to the form in my email responses.  Will JotForm accommodate this as well? Or must I have a website in order to use this service?  Thanks!
