    Adobe FormsCentral Substitute Templates

    Asked by JRW32 on January 21, 2015 at 10:13 PM

    As an Adobe Forms (FORMER) user - do we have to use your Templates and Themes?  All my forms are custom from top to bottom.  We are all scrambling for what to do now!

    My forms are custom, have more than 300 questions on each form.  The loss of Forms Central is a big deal. Granted, there might be others out there just as good.

    It is the conversion process that is daunting.  It was 3 years in the making, now I have 6 months to find, replace and rebuild.

    Sure hope whomever we go with will be in business a while!

    Hello JRW32,

    As an Adobe Forms (FORMER) user - do we have to use your Templates and Themes?  All my forms are custom from top to bottom.

    Please share one of your form URL or the web page where you have your form embedded and we will take a look. No you do not have to necessarily use our form templates and you can build your own form from scratch. Creating form with 300 form fields should not me an issue at all in JotForm. 

    I would suggest you to take a look at JotForm editor and I am sure you will find it better and easier to work on our system too. Go ahead and sign up for a free account and start building your first form. You can send us a message and we will surely help you in all possible way.

    You may also like to take a look at our "Form Templates" section where we have thousands of pre-built template. You can use any of them to start with. Please check the following URLs:

    http://www.jotform.com/form-templates  

    http://www.jotform.com/theme-store 

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team to create an app to migrate forms from FormsCentral. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Incase if you want to build your form from scratch, you may like to take a look at the following guides as well:

    Thank you!

    That would be fantastic if we could migrate our forms over from Forms Central. We are scrambling to find a new form provider as well.

    This is a copy of a form we have out LIVE right now.  Feel free to do whatever on this form as it is a copy and any data not real.  It has around 286 fill in answers along with skip logic if a someone chooses NOT to do one or more of the offered tests.

    You are welcome to put in bogus data as it is required to step through the form.  Again, this is only a copy and nothing you can do to harm my "real" from.

    Thanks!

    Thank you, yes, we are in the same boat! If you can create a way to import FormsCentral forms, you would cinch it for me. I find your program to be great for our needs and having a text matrix option makes it superior to our current provider. Thank you!

    Yesterday I started re-creating one of my forms from FormsCentral (75 questions) with Jot Form to test the waters. The only difference seems to be that when you adjust one header, dropbox, text box etc. then you adjust them all. It took about 1.5 hours to grasp the designer/editor. The form is almost done after 5+ hours but the next one will be faster. I'm hoping for an import solution so the next 10 forms will not take a week.

    I have not found any information about Adobe FormsCentral API, so it seems that we will not be able to create an API based Import App similar to one that we have for Wufoo. At any rate, our developers have been already looking into this, and I think that they will be able to come up with some kind of the import solution in the nearest time.

    We will keep you updated!

    We wanted to update you that our developers have started on the import tool that would allow you to import the Adobe Forms into your JotForm accounts and you can see its progress here: http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/

    You will be able to see a preview of the tool in action on that page as well.

    Do note however that it is still in its starting phase, but we will update that page as our tool matures :)
