    Our development team is currently working on an application that will allow you to do this.

    You can see it here: http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/

    Please note that it's currently under development.
    However, you'll be notified here once when the app is ready to use.

    Thank you.

    In addition to our founder's last response we also wanted to point out that we now have a guide to help aid you in the migration process to help get your forms imported from Adobe to JotForm.

    I will be migrating from FormsCentral and would like to be able to take payments by SquareUp and Paypal.  Do you offer form payment widgets for Square?

    Hi there,


    I submitted some forms a few days ago and am wondering what the turn around time is for them to be uploaded?

    We have updated the custom Import Tool to properly import your forms to JotForm.

    Check this link:  http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/

    I suggest you use the tool also to import the forms if you haven't done yet.

    It might take a while before the imported forms will appear on your My Forms page.

    You will know when they were already transferred because you will receive an email notification about it (aside from the forms now being available in your JotForm My Forms page)

    I will also inquire on your behalf, to our higher team support about the status of the forms you had imported.

    We will notify you here also as soon as there is new update on the status of the in-transit forms.

    The reason it is taking some time is that we are running them in batches. We run a batch of imports, (usually 50) review the forms for mistakes, send emails to users so they can also review them, and then we fix any problems we see. Only after we fix all of the problems, we run the next batch. Our goal is to perfect our import software. 

    Sorry that is taking so much time but it is really for the best.

    I would like to use this opportunity to let you know that our latest tools are out of the toolbox and ready for some fun and great times.

    And how can there be no fun when with our great developers we have just released a tool that will get all of your Adobe Forms with or without the data you have captured over them to our system.

    What do you have to do?

    It is a clicking party, just call your friends and get to our blog Import Both Your Forms and Responses in a Single Step from Adobe FormsCentral and start enjoying with your friends while our system takes care of everything for you in the background :)

    Need more reason to celebrate? Take a look at the blog and I am sure that you will immediately see at least one more ;)

    Hi Melissa,

    I checked your account and see the forms are imported. But, if you are missing any forms please try re-importing them. 



    We have also fixed the problem with the Date field format:


    (form has since been removed.)
