    Inquiry regarding migration from FormsCentral to JotForm

    Asked by Priya Totaram  on March 04, 2015 at 01:11 PM

    Hi There,

     

    Century Management Services currently utilizes Adobe Formscentral to create/ host a lot of our electronic forms.  This company was recommended by Adobe Formscentral on an e-mail where they announced they would not be continuing services after June of this year. I guess I really need to know the following about your company

     

    1) Can we download PDF versions of the form off the site onto our network?

    2) If we can download PDF forms, can we host a fillable PDF copy on our network drive? To follow that, if an employee fills it out and hit submits can the submission register to the back end of jotform?  This leads me to my next quesiton...does Jot Form have some sort of datamanagement software  to collect all submissions-- like an excel or CSV of some sort? Does it have anything above that, like data analysis ( I am asking because formscentral offers this).

     

    Please let me know. We are eager to begin the process of recreating these forms and getting our company on board to use them. I have no issue with doing a remote connection with an individual to show you the process of how we use electronic forms now. Should be 5-10 Minutes. Also please be advised, we are looking to build a relationship with a company for a long time. We are not looking to change once we commit. Thanks.

     

    Best Regards,

    Priya Totaram

    Hi,

    First of all, welcome and thank you for your interest in using JotForm.

    We heard about the Adobe FormsCentral and our management and developers came up with the Migration Tool that you can use to move your forms to JotForm, no need to recreate the whole form, although some may need to have adjustments. Please see this blog post by our founder: http://www.jotform.com/blog/132-Incredible-One-step-Import-Tool-by-JotForm-The-Best-FormsCentral-Alternative.

    For your questions, here are my answers. I hope it helps.

    1) Can we download PDF versions of the form off the site onto our network?

    Yes, you can create PDF version of the form, you can find a guide here: http://www.jotform.com/help/212-How-to-Create-a-PDF-Form.

    2) If we can download PDF forms, can we host a fillable PDF copy on our network drive? To follow that, if an employee fills it out and hit submits can the submission register to the back end of jotform?  This leads me to my next quesiton...does Jot Form have some sort of datamanagement software  to collect all submissions-- like an excel or CSV of some sort? Does it have anything above that, like data analysis ( I am asking because formscentral offers this).

    JotForm is a web form builder, it focuses more on online forms that are hosted in our end. Unfortunately, fillable PDF version of the forms are just PDF, you can fill them out but the responses or data from that PDF is not sent directly to us. 

    For the follow up question, yes we have a data management system where you can view, edit and delete submissions of each form. Aside from that, we have a couple of app integration that you can use, these includes data management, analytics, CRMs, and a lot more, you can check the app page here: http://apps.jotform.com/.

    To learn more about what JotForm offers and a comparison with FormsCentral, you can check this page: http://www.jotform.com/formscentral-comparison/.

    I hope this helps. If you need more information on this please do let us know.

    Thank you.

    Priya,

    I have a great news for you. We have just released Fillable PDF Form Creator.

    http://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

     

    It might still have bugs on some forms, but it works beautifully for most forms. Please give it a try and let us know your feedback.
