    How do I import a form from Adobe Forms Central?

    Asked by daniela burton  on January 21, 2015 at 03:26 PM


    Forms Central is closing and we are looking for another online form provider.  I see that you can import a form from a website, but I have not had success.  Please help so we can make the decision if we will go with Jot Fom.

    We currently do not have direct import feature, but I will raise your thread to our developers and if enough people ask for this I believe that they will implement this as a new feature.

    In the mean time, Daniela I would like to suggest to just try our JotForm Builder to see how easy it is to use it, especially if you consider:

    1. Amazing templates to start with
    2. Great Styling features
    3. and amazing themes if you are after award winning themes.

    If you do not mind, please feel free to share with us some of the more complex forms that you have created on Adobe system for us to see.

    @ Ben from JotForm Support


    Thanks for the answer.  I see that creating the forms is easy, but we are looking to import a bunch of forms and don't have the time to recreate them all.  We are really interested in your service and would need to know sooner rather then later if a javascript supported import will be available.  We are also looking at Formstack, since they do have a javascript import feature.  With that said, we really do think your service is better and if you can fix the problem we are SOLD!
