    Is this the proper service for me.

    Asked by Stephanie Garland  on March 10, 2015 at 09:42 AM

    Hello,  We are a High School Athletic office.  We would like to provide an online service for all of our current athletes.  We have numerous forms that must be filled out before they can participate in athletics. Our main concern is to eliminate paper waste and make it more convenient for the athlete and their parent.  It is not always easy for them to come into the office.  If we provide them an online service we feel these issues will be resolved. So my question is your service compatible with this.  Also, How am I notified that someone has completed their information. You may contact me by email or phone 1-812-254-3862.  Thank you

    I believe our solution can work for you. We have multiple fields that you can add to your form and widgets and apps to provide that added functionality.

    What is it that you would like to do with your form? What are the features that you are looking for? If I had a clear desired target I could point you in the right direction to get what you desire.

    Our solution is very robust and I believe it will allow you to reduce or eliminate paper usage within your company. All submissions made to your form can be exported in Excel, CSV, or PDF format for further adjustments/reporting. So, yes this is a solution that you can explore. I will await your desired targets.


    Regards

    We actually have 8 sheets of information.  All different topics.  All forms have to be read and signed by the student and their parent.  We would like them to be able to electronically sign them. We do not want to keep them on file here  but would like to be able to refer to the packet of information as needed.  For example we require them to sign a drug test consent form.  If we need to order them to have the drug test we can refer back to it knowing they signed this. We would like to connect a link to the service from our website so they can log into our website and complete paperwork from there. Will I need to recreate the forms for your website or can they be downloaded?

    Hi,

    I believe everything you need is doable with JotForm.

    We actually have 8 sheets of information.  All different topics.  All forms have to be read and signed by the student and their parent.  We would like them to be able to electronically sign them.

    Yes, we have several widgets you can add to your form to allow for electronic singatures:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/smooth_signature

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/signature

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/sigplus

    We do not want to keep them on file here  but would like to be able to refer to the packet of information as needed.  For example we require them to sign a drug test consent form.  If we need to order them to have the drug test we can refer back to it knowing they signed this.

    You submission data will be stored and accessible from your JotForm account.  You can also download your submission data in several different forms.

    We would like to connect a link to the service from our website so they can log into our website and complete paperwork from there. Will I need to recreate the forms for your website or can they be downloaded?

    Though we do not have the ability to password protect our forms, you can embed them to a password protected page:

    You would need to recreate the forms with JotForm unless you currently have them in electronic form.  There are several ways to import your forms depending on what format they are in.  If they are in paper form, we can assist you with whatever trouble you have getting them setup the way you'd like.

    Hello, Regarding all of our forms. Many of the forms are provided by the Indiana High School Athletic Association.  I will have to check with them but I am not sure they will allow me to reproduce them. Correct me if I am wrong but I can not upload my form or the IHSAA form to your website? I will have to retype all of the information to your website? 

    Is this correct?  Thank you

    If your forms are not in some sort of electronic format already, then yes, they would need to be recreated.  We do not currently have the ability to turn paper forms into jotforms.  We have most basic field types available and quite a few easily available advanced features, that you can drag and drop into your form.
