    It should be possible to import the Adobe FormsCentral based forms to JotForm. Our Development Team is currently improving the import tools.

    Please submit your form URLs via the following page, and we will let you know once the import is done.

    Thank you.

    I submitted my forms several times over several days to http://www.jotform.com/formscentral/ and still no final results and no confirming email.  

    Is the Adobe FormsCentral, form-importer tool working, or is it a work-in-progress?  

    How long should we anticipate waiting for the results to show up in MyForms?  

    Minutes, hours, days...?

    Thanks!

    @Ralph

    Our team have worked hard to bring most of the FormsCentral templates into our gallery, please find them here:

    @sjpd

    Our developers have put aside other projects in order to automate this process. Please bear with us on this, I assure you they will bring a fully functional tool. In the meantime, let me send a note to our developers about your request.

    Thats' reassuring.   I didn't mean to sound terse, it was a matter of fact question about whether the tool was ready and how long we need to wait for the conversion results.  I understand if you are in mid-development of a conversion tool.  Adobe didn't give any of us much of a warning.

    If you think the tool will be ready and tested in another week, I'll try it then.  

    If you are hand-converting forms for us users, let me re-submit my list in order of priority.

    You seem to have a great service.  And from what I can tell so far, it looks like the next best thing to Adobe FornsCentral.

     

    Thank you.

    Hello DaveB

    Thank you for the words of appreciation. We are doing our best to always provide a great form builder with many ready to use features and the best customer service experience.

    And yes, for now we are manually converting the forms I already sent an email to our dev team, but you can re-submit the list if you will

    You can take a look at what our team did, we have already converted many templates and they are ready to use.

    I sent an email with a couple of forms that I use with clients but I don't want them made available as public templates. I thought they were only going to show up in
    "My Forms" - are you saying that all will be shared templates?

     

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    These are all good questions on this thread and they all have their weight and we hope that we have answered them to your satisfaction.

    I would however like to give you a link to our blog post which will introduce you to the brand new and updated tools that you can use to transfer only forms or transfer the forms and their data to your JotForm account.

    I bet that you are already eager to see the link, so here it is: Import Both Your Forms and Responses in a Single Step from Adobe FormsCentral :)

    I believe that there will be many smiles because of this, but why don't you just let us know if I thought right :)

    I see that many on this thread have asked about the import time using our import tools.

    I would like to follow up with everyone on what their experience was so far with the use of our import tools, but more importantly to ask you to let us know if you are still waiting to have your forms or your forms and their submissions imported to your jotform account - or if you have any other issues.

    To do this, please open a new thread that we will raise to our team working with the import tools. To open a new thread, all you have to do is to click here and submit following:

    1. was the request made for import of forms only or forms and their data
    2. when the request was made (date or approx amount of time from that moment)
    3. if the request was made over a different email than the one associated with your account, do let us know which one it is (there is a private checkbox at the bottom if you are going to share emails with us).

    If you are happy with the import and have a bit of time, please share your experience with others on our blog: Import Both Your Forms and Responses in a Single Step from Adobe FormsCentral or over twitter: https://twitter.com/

    Thank you.
